Minimalism for windows
What a difference less can make! With its radically pared-down rose, the FSB plug-in handle is ideal for nearly any window profile – whether timber or metal. There is nothing reductionist about the range of variants available, though: our plug-in handle, winner of the Iconic Award 2018, is available in any of 37 different designs in Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Brass and Bronze.
All FSB window handles fitted with ball catches – and hence also its plug-in handles – are engineered to deliver 25,000 operations / 150,000 click-stop events (180° turn-and-tilt cycles), earning them the highest quality rating of 5/180 under DIN EN 13 126-3. This standard defines requirements for window handles that are designed to ensure consistent quality and fitness for function over many years. The RAL Quality Assurance Association has re-aligned its requirements with the criteria set forth in DIN EN 13 126-3, meaning that hardware merely now needs to endure 10,000 180° tilt-turn cycles to qualify for the RAL quality kitemark.
A new solution involving a lock cylinder that can be comfortably operated by key from the front is of ideal assistance in implementing security schemes for burglar-resistant windows in the form of lockable window handles. It is possible using the lock cylinder to additionally fit a selection of the FSB plug-in handles to burglar-resistant windows. Thus functional add-ons can be executed in the same style and material as your favoured handle!
