So as to be able to secure the hardware firmly to the narrow stiles whilst preventing any injury being caused to the hand on the slamming face, Ludwig Wittgenstein had a cranked lever handle made to his own drawings which he combined with a non-cranked female handle on the reverse. This ingenious combination saw this philosopher of language become the first person to provide convincing answers to the risk of hands getting caught as well as to fastening problems that are still an issue today.
Wittgenstein’s brainwave continues to define how new handle collections are designed at FSB. A perfectly matching frame-door lever handle will in the best of circumstances be the crowning glory of any heavy-duty range of hardware.
Coherent down to the last detail
The architect Jürgen Engel has come up with a collection of door and window handles that are single-mindedly geared towards the needs of modern civic/commercial construction and are conducive to a maximum in visual continuity. Conspicuously, the geometry of the various handles for doors is virtually identical to that of the window handle. With its flat curving front face and gently rounded area at the back, FSB 1271 fuses precision and comfort.
