Be it in the form of classic tubular pulls round or oval in cross-section or of soberly pared-down push/pull pad handles from the S-Flat series angular or square in cross-section, FSB has the perfect design to hand for any door and taste. Besides “analog” pulls, with the Fingerscan series we also offer an impressive solution for the digital operation of doors. After all, biometrically scanning a finger for access identification purposes should ideally take place on the pull itself – in other words where the fingers grip.
Square. Practical. Good-looking. Angular front-door hardware from FSB.
FSB has augmented its established range of round and oval tubular pulls with a small but perfectly formed selection of pulls of angular/square cross-section.
As a result, we can now offer architects, fabricators and end-users the formal vocabulary of angular (pull) designs for main-entrance doors too.
Oval door-pull series
The oval designs FSB developed a decade ago are a key constituent of its range of door pulls and an alternative to traditional pulls of circular cross-section. The formula “diagonal + oval = ideal gripping” identified by FSB reduces the amount of effort required to take hold of and operate the handles on entrance doors. The oval styling offers the market a new gripping quality for eye and hand which FSB has had copyright protected. FSB now supplies almost all traditional designs in a haptic oval variant in tandem with its circular pull range.
Fingerscan door with biometrics technology
In delivering electronic functions conducive to convenience and security in equal measure, FSB demonstrated that thinking about products whilst also taking account of human habits inevitably gives rise to substantive innovations. The biometric scanning of a finger as a means of access identification would, our technicians reasoned, need to occur at the point where fingers are positioned when taking hold of a handle. They duly came up with an FSB Fingerscan door pull with unique in-built biometrics technology.
Pulls can be either face or through-fixed to doors made of the most diverse of materials.
As regards the issue of face fixing versus bolt through-fixing, FSB wishes to point out that the threaded-insert technique it adopts makes for face fixing that, as well as being aesthetically pleasing, is also sufficiently durable as a rule. This needs to be qualified, however, in the case of heavy-duty applications, (i. e. in schools, office blocks and other public institutions): here, we emphatically recommend bolt through-fixing, which ensures that the furniture remains fit for use even after years of heavy treatment, since the forces involved are absorbed on both sides of the door.
Clamping-rose fixing method
FSB’s clamping-rose fixing method allows all FSB door pulls with round shanks to be tightened fast against any door face by means of an easy-to-assemble clamping rose. Visible screws are dispensed with. The radial play engineered into the assembly by FSB ensures the requisite compensatory tolerances during fitting.
Safety clearance (S)
When fitting a handle to the closing or slamming face of a door, a safety clearance needs to be allowed for between the handle and the edge of the door and the jamb. The assembly scenario is made more readily comprehensible by the sketch below. Ideally, the safety clearances as recommended by FSB should be adhered to.
