Be it in the form of classic tubular pulls in round or oval cross-section or of pared-down push/pull pad handles from the S-Flat series which are angular or square in cross-section, FSB has the perfect design at hand for any door and taste.
FSB has added to its traditional tubular puII handle range with a comprehensive collection of oval and flat designs. All pull handles adapt to a wide variety of fastening methods. The traditional range of push/pull pad handles and profiles with brackets has also been further developed.
ln principle, FSB supplies its entire pull handle range in either aluminum, stainless steel, brass and bronze, with stainless steel being particularly recommended for heavy-duty applications. Aluminum pulls are available in a variety of anodized finishes. The durable stainless steel pulls are supplied in a satin or polished finish. Brass and bronze pulls are offered in a selection of styles when these base materials and finish options are desired.
Pulls can be mounted using various methods on a variety of door types and materials. FSB offers the four fastening options including: back-to-back fastening (A), through-bolted fastening (B), concealed fastening with threaded insert (for solid doors) (C), concealed fastening with drop clamp (for hollow doors) (D).
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.
