What is a profile cylinder?

A profile cylinder lock is used as a classic for house, office and flat entrance doors. A profile cylinder is a cylinder that can be operated with a key. Profile cylinders therefore also provide a certain degree of protection - although less than protective fittings. Attention: If you want a door handle with profile cylinder insert, please note the marking PZ.

Graphite black

Black is finding its way into architecture, whether on large window fronts, as entrance doors or in interior details. Griffwerk offers the right selection of black fittings. A special feature is the black shade developed by GRIFFWERK, inspired by the black of graphite. The material look is reminiscent of black graphite powder, the feel is surprisingly soft. Graphite black impresses with its unusual, velvety matt finish and soft surface. Graphite black accents can be repeated in the room. They have a very noble effect and do not stand for elegant refinement and luxury for nothing. Griffwerk offers graphite black design in various product categories, allowing a holistic design of any interior. Graphite black is close to the RAL colour RAL 9011 (graphite black). Whether door handle, window handle, handle shell pair or even just handle bar, what is important is a uniform interplay of different colour elements that emerges from a conscious colour concept.

 

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.
