FSB Glass door fittings by FSB
Coordinating hardware designs for doors, glass doors and win- dows strikes FSB as being logical, such consistency being an indispensable form of over- all architectural expression in modern buildings. Glass doors in particular have an important part to play here. They create more light, link up spaces and are conducive to a great sense of roominess. The innate trans- parency of glass doors means that great care needs to be taken when designing hardware for them, however. It is the lock, handles and hinges, after all, that lend a glass door its visual identity. One of the compelling innovations presented in this Manual is a new compact glass door lock concept developed in cooperation with Ingenhoven Architects that, as well as being
extremely compactly dimensioned and operating without handle roses even in the heavy- duty variant, can be fitted flush with the door frame (assuming the latter is to the DIN standard). Our glass door furniture is ideally complemented by components produced by system partners Gira (ITS 30 installation system for partition systems), Mabeg (Comform wayfinding system) and Inotec (ITS 30 escape route lighting system) that are suitably proportioned and go well with FSB’s AluGrau® colour shade. Please request exhaustive product information from the respective makers. All the hardware variants covered in this section can be combined with virtually all lever handle models in the FSB range.

Colour can also feature if so desired: Lock and hardware can be powder- coated in any colour from the RAL chart to match stiles fin-

Lever handle furniture to match glass door locks As well as supplying its own glass door fittings, FSB can also – with few exceptions – adapt its entire range of lever handles/ doorknobs to glass door fittings commonly marketed by its competitors. This entails minor technical modifications regard- ing the handle connection and fixing procedure. To rule out any misunderstandings, detailed information concerning the lock (e.g. maker’s name and product code) is required when ordering lever handles and doorknobs for glass door locks. Please order well in advance
to allow for the requisite modifications. We cannot supply these items from stock.
ished in a RAL colour. Series 4220 and 4223 hardware can be fitted either with or without rose/lever handle furniture, thus offering scope for deploying lever handle sets with AGL® heavy-duty bearings for heavy or large-format glass doors.
Door pulls for glass doors
Door pulls of round or oval cross-section can be used in a great variety of ways either as a means of operating glass doors or as a design feature with protective properties and have fastenings specifically intended for back-to-back or face fixing respectively. FSB can either make use of exist- ing custom solutions for glass doors or develop bespoke fixing solutions and handle de- signs.
