Lucia

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.


Door handles: Which design variants are available?

smart2lock

smart2lock is the intelligent locking technology and works maintenance-free without magnets or electronics. We have spent a long time tinkering to find the perfect position on the handle neck, so that the locking latch can be reached most comfortably. A red marking indicates to the user whether the door is locked. In addition, the handle cannot be pushed down either outside or inside when locked. We have also thought about an emergency release for SMART2LOCK.

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.


Form accents

The squaring of the circle

The squaring of the circle is a classic geometry problem. With a number of handle designs, you can opt for either round or square rosettes, thereby achieving a completely different look.

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.


Renovating with fittings - A new look!

New fittings generally also fit old doors. Long plates are ideal for covering all drill holes. This chapter will provide inspiration and a quick overview of the dimensions of our long plates.

What is a long plate set?

You want to give an existing interior door a new face? The old door handles are quickly history, but possible drill holes can be disturbing. To cover these, simply use a long backplate fitting. If you don't have the same problem with your old door, use a short backplate fitting.

Renovation advice for apartments 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 doors shut. They may not be deemed shut legally. To profit from insurance protection in case of damage it pays off to ask your insurance company. Use this opportunity to clarify whether the resistance class of the protective units is sufficient.
