As you have come to expect from FSB, our flush pulls embody our usual lofty aspirations as regards design, functionality and manufacturing sophistication – to the annoyance of our oriental imitators and joy of our customers.
The jury for the internationally esteemed red dot awards adjudged our new en- closed and open flush pulls to be in the hunt for a medal, according them an “honourable mention”. This formally and functionally innovative hardware solution for sliding doors compelling takes up the architectural trend for flush integration of technical features.
Smooth as you like: the blanking flap
Our new closed flush pulls ensure a uniform appearance for the door leaf. The operating aperture is always blanked out by a flap that springs neatly into the closed position when the hardware is not being used.
Two modes of assembly are possible: the flat perimeter may be surface-mounted to the door or be fully recessed. The handles are designed in such a way that untidily or inaccurately machined edges can be concealed by means of the sur- face-mounted perimeter. But the fit- tings really come into their own if com- pletely flush recessed. Hardware and door are suffused into a single entity – the door’s design credentials are signifi- cantly enhanced. No visible fastenings are needed.
The closed version boasts more than just aesthetic qualities, though. The user soon learns to appreciate the playful pleasure of flicking the flap alternately to the left and right. Flush pulls are gener- ally fitted on timber doors. The leaf or frame is machined to accept the hard- ware, which is then clipped or glued in place as required.
FSB manufactures small flush pulls for lightweight doors, as well as larger vari- ants for heavy-duty doors, in square/ rectangular and round/oblong designs respectively. Round flush pull 4254 requires a cut-out just 17 mm in depth, for example. It is just the job for small, lightweight sliding doors as well as for fitted furnishings or furniture in general.
Customised external styling is likewise possible, as are integrated keyways (in one the following variants to suit the lock fitted: warded [BB], Chubb [CH], europrofile cylinder [PZ], oval cylinder [OZ] or circular cylinder [RZ]).
