The new FSB plug-in handle:
Minimalism for windows
What a difference less can make! With its radically pared-down rose, the FSB plug-in handle is ideal for any window profile – whether timber, metal or PVC. There is nothing reductionist about the range of variants available, though: awaiting assembly are ca. 30 different handle designs in Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Brass and Bronze.
At last, anyone for whom less is more can now partake of the aesthetic quality of plug-in handles that look as lean as lean whether fitted to aluminium, timber or PVC profiles
The new FSB plug-in handle aids correct operation of the window by both tactile and acoustic means. The window can be heard and felt to slot into position at 90° intervals when opened, closed and tilted.
How FSB plug-in handles with round roses are fitted depends on the window drive and involves either a clamping mechanism in the profile or, in the case of PVC profiles, a screw fastening.
The option of fitting plug-in handles to timber frames is new to the market. Assembly in such cases merely involves ordering an additional adaptor (Product Code 03 0401 00000) that facilitates deadlocking.

Highest quality rating of 5/180
All FSB window handles fitted with ball catches (for timber and metal profiles to the RAL quality standard) – 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 13126-3. 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.
Lockable plug-in handles for timber and metal windows
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 burglarresistant 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 shown on Pages 5 and 6 to burglar-resistant windows. Thus functional add-ons can be executed in the same style and material as your favoured handle! It goes without saying that certification to the RAL quality standard RAL-GZ 607/9 and to DIN EN 13 126-3 respectively is pending for these solutions, too, and that they are wholly suitable for burglar-resistant windows of classes RC 1 to RC 6 as per standards DIN EN 1627 to 1630.
Please note when ordering
The borehole layout and, in the case of plug-in handles for PVC profiles, the length of the screws required for plug-in handles need to be in keeping with the window profile selected.
