Secure the front door with protective fittings!

Every four minutes there is a burglary in Germany. The biggest weak point in flats: the flat entrance door.

Although around 75% of all burglaries target apartment buildings, too little attention has so far been paid to securing the flat entrance door with front door fittings. Burglars are under great time pressure. Attempts to resist for as little as five minutes fail. Moreover, 80 percent of the perpetrators are only occasional thieves. They do not take a high risk of detection and choose properties with unsecured weak points. Contrary to popular belief, 80 percent of burglaries take place during the day when the residents are out of the house - preferably between 10 am and 1 pm. Apartment buildings are particularly affected.

Prising open the shield of a front door security fitting or pulling protruding cylinders can be effectively warded off with a security fitting from Griffwerk.

Effective burglary protection for your home!

The number of domestic burglaries continues to rise in Germany. However, most attempts could be thwarted by the right burglary protection. Too little attention is paid to the protection of front doors in particular.

You should pay attention to this with your flat entrance door:

  1. Invisible screwing prevents screwing on/off from the outside.
  2. Special hardened steel plate offers resistance to drilling, knocking off and bending.
  3. 3. Hardened steel cylinder cover prevents the profile cylinder from being pulled out.

Resistance classes of protective fittings

For classification purposes, protective fittings are classified into resistance classes. They indicate how strong the burglary protection is. Depending on your individual protection needs, choose fittings from four different protection classes (ES0-ES3).

GRIFFWERK equipped the revised range of protective hardware with flanking sales support for specialist trade and crafts. GRIFFWERK has solutions at hand for sales exhibitions and mobile consulting as well.

Resistance class ES0

Components in the resistance class have basic protection against attempts to break in with physical force (mainly vandalism) such as kicking, counter-jumping, shoulder throwing, pushing up and tearing out.

✓ Suitable for secondary doors such as garage doors

Resistance class ES1

The casual burglar additionally tries to break open the locked and bolted component with simple tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and wedges.

✓ Suitable for flat entrance doors, front doors


Renovation advice for apartements for rent

A safety upgrade in apartments for rent must be coordinated with the landlord just like all changes affecting building substance. A written permit that excludes the obligation to remove it again when moving out is sensible as well. Ideally, change requests should be clarified before entering into the rent contract.

Insured object

Never just pull the front door shut. Under certain circumstances, they are legally considered to be unlocked. In order to benefit from insurance cover in the event of damage, it is worth checking with your insurance company. Take this opportunity to clarify whether the resistance class of the protective fittings is sufficient.

The classic among door handle shapes

The absolute classic among door handle shapes, LUCIA, can be assigned to the Bauhaus style. The outstanding design is not based on playful details, but, as usual in the Bauhaus style, on the simplification of a form. The compound basic forms and the use of basic geometric bodies are typical design features. Not only in Bauhaus style houses does the handle fit perfectly into the living room atmosphere, even on classic style doors this design becomes a representative eye-catcher with traditional roots.

Who is LUCIA?

As you can already guess from the sound, LUCIA is a female first name, which translates from Latin and means "light". 
The name also refers to a festival that is celebrated in the Scandinavian countries. As is not to be assumed otherwise, this is a festival of light - the counterpart to midsummer celebrated in winter. 
LUCIA is a saint in whose honor the Festival of Light is celebrated. This is the reason for the celebration, which is traditionally celebrated every year in Sweden, Norway and in Denmark as well as in Finland. No one has ever seen the saint, yet she is present at every festival. In most families the eldest daughter dresses up as the saint, whose head is decorated with a brightly lit wreath of candles. Since this is a festival of light, she leads the procession by candlelight and leads the retinue to the main place of the festival.

Why does our door handle have a female name at all?

At the beginning of our company's foundation, we have given all handles melodious names. Since this model in the Frankfurt form is an L-shaped handle, we considered a name with L as a good choice. The main reason for the naming is simply the sound of the name, which fits the shape of the handle and is easy to remember. The design of the handle is as sonorous as the name. Simple, slightly industrial and therefore suitable for every house, the door handle with the unforgettable name enjoys great popularity.

What is an L-shape?

The L-shape is a door handle that looks like the letter "L" in top view. A door handle in the L-shape consists of two stainless steel round tubes, mitered and assembled - so that the handle forms a right angle.

What is the Frankfurt Model - the Frankfurt Form?

The "founding father" of the L shape is the Frankfurt model from the 1920s. In the 80s, the door handle was used in the German Museum of Architecture in Frankfurt, where the name for the door handle probably comes from. A second approach is based on a different name origin for the handle: The L-shape was designed by the Frankfurt architect Ferdinand Kramer and thus came to its name. Since 1925 the door handle has been mass-produced in the Frankfurt model.

Even if the history of its origin is unclear: the door handle and the city of Frankfurt are closely connected. According to records, four different shapes are attributed to the door handle of the Frankfurt model. First, the L-shaped handle was produced from white bronze and nickel silver. This was followed by a switch to cast iron, aluminum and finally stainless steel. From 1920-1940, the Frankfurt shape for the interior door was the most commonly used handle for the room door.

Care instructions for stainless steel

High quality material with intelligent surface

GRIFFWERK is not limited to noble design - we are proud of the inner values of our products. We exclusively use stainless steel of alloy 304, also known as "1.4301". This high quality steel is - matt or polished - due to its composition stainless with special corrosion resistance and durability. Stainless steel forms a very thin protective passive layer, which rebuilds even after surface damage caused by chemical reactions.

Our care spray

GRIFFWERK recommends the "GRIFFWERK Care Spray", which is specially designed for our products, to care for and maintain the value of your stainless steel door handles and fittings. It cleans intensively, has a dirt-repellent effect and thus maintains the value of your stainless steel room door set, door handles and door fittings. Please do not use any aggressive cleaning agents or scouring agents containing alcohol for cleaning - regardless of whether the stainless steel surface is matt, polished or shiny. Please note that the surface of the lever handle set can be damaged under extraordinary stress, for example by building dirt, grinding dust, aggressive vapors or salt water. For this reason, clean the handle set with GRIFFWERK Care Spray immediately after soiling. Our GRIFFWERK care spray is available from all our trade partners.
