Multifunctional FSB 1155 lever handle:

Easy to operate, safe, wards off infectious germs

Various experts are of the opinion that high levels of footfall in public buildings and institutions increase the risk of viruses, bacteria and multi-resistant pathogens being transmitted. They argue that the most likely sources of infection are objects we regularly come into contact with. This is precisely what FSB has in mind with its 1155 model: the lever handle's ergonomic angular design allows it to be operated either by hand or elbow, thus reliably reducing the risk of infection in all areas of application.

A premium producer of door and window fittings that have always been made in Germany, way back in the late 1980s FSB got together with the Fraunhofer Institute to develop a model that is now more topical than ever. The shape of FSB 1155 arose out of the findings of scientific analyses of how to engineer the ideal lever handle. Its innovatively angular styling enables doors to be conveniently opened and closed without hands having to come into contact with them. Instead, the user achieves optimum results and levels of safety by simply positioning their elbow between the handle and the door. The handle’s handed design provides firm support when the door is opened by elbow. Its triangular alignment accurately replicates the user’s natural sequence of movements when opening or closing the likes of doors and windows and thus makes for a very organic form of operation. This has the additional advantage of allowing doors to be conveniently opened even if the user has their hands full.

FSB 1155 is made of Stainless Steel, an extremely corrosion-resistant material that is additionally impervious to bumps and scratches. It forms an invisible passive layer, moreover, that provides it with a high level of resistance to cleaning agents and disinfectants. As a means of further minimising the incidence of bacteria and multi-resistant pathogens, these door handles can optionally be supplied with FSB’s innovative AIC anti-infection coating.

These multifunctional door levers are ideally suited for deployment in heavily frequented areas of public buildings and other types of establishment such as hospitals or nursing institutions. The series is available for fitting to standard, emergency-exit and fire doors. The handles can be straightforwardly retrofitted at any time and are rotatably fixed, operating with AGL® bearings on an adaptor-system basis. FSB is thus once again seen to be a byword for sophisticated technology of the highest order – “made in Germany”.
