FSB Specification Service

The perfect door from a single provider

BSW, CES, FSB, Norseal and Woelm (HELM Sliding hardware) are five companies steeped in tradition with a shared vision and a shared aim: to offer our customers every door-related product from a single source – made in Germany and perfectly coordinated both in the technology they use and the materials they are made from. With the complimentary Spec Writing Service, we supply product consultancy and door planning to provide professional support to architects, designers and planners under the aspect of international building regulations.

Five brands. One vision. Made in Germany.

Our synergies are your advantage. With our package products you are always safe and secure, and you benefit from fantastic prices and guarantees. The ties between our brands are clear to see. We know what commercial and public buildings need and we use our combined expertise to benefit our customers. This has naturally led to our shared specification service, which takes a load of the work off of your shoulders.

Specification service

Requirements for specifications do vary by project type, by architect and by global location. We are structured to react to the differing requirements using a custom software program combined with an interactive web-based communication tool. We supply product consultancy and door planning to provide professional support to architects and planners under the aspect of international building regulations.

The benefits of the specification service

"The manufacturer’s ability to customise the design of the hardware, as per our requirement, was the most compelling aspect of this cooperation. Firstly, a mockup was done to see the design first-hand and be able to touch and feel the grip of the handle."

1. Check

First of all, we check the architectural plans, door elevations, door schedules, and details – and we want to know everything about the design and the aesthetic vision.

2. Feed

Then we feed our unique software tool with all the Architect's door schedule information. We review the floorplans to understand the exit plans, electronic hardware requirements, and essential aesthetic requirements.

3. Finish

At last, we systematically review all of the door and window openings and apply the correct combination of products that form the hardware groupings.

FSB and the courage for aesthetics in their functional form.

A handle is never just a handle. A door handle, a window handle or a lever handle are always a commitment to a clearly defined design language. This confession requires courage. Courage to be consistent. Courage to design. Courage to detail. Courage for sustainability. FSB has this courage for perfection. For 140 years.

That’s the way you get specs written.

Door hardware specifications may differ from country to country as well as from building to building. Every building has different functional requirements to fulfill, and these are also mirrored in our door-planning process.

We undertake this complex process and ensure that the design, as well as the surface finish of the product, is coherent to achieve your aesthetic vision.

Realize your project.
Wherever you live, whatever you are planning – FSB has your back.
