Window handle ULMER GRIFF

With respect and license

The ULMER GRIFF GRIFF reedited by GRIFFWERK shows the characteristic soft transition of form from circle to ellipse. A principle based on mathematics, as Max Bill also called for in his 1946 work "the mathematical way of thinking in the art of our time". The ULMER GRIFF BY GRIFFWERK is the only licensed re-edition worldwide and therefore entitled to bear Max Bill's signature.

Window handles in black

These window handles only look like their cast-iron predecessors at first glance. Inside, there is sophisticated hardware technology and the design language is also deliberately kept very modern and timeless. The surface offers a special experience. Thanks to the premium coating soft2touch by GRIFFWERK, it is particularly soft. What looks like pure industrial style turns out, at second glance, to be a luxury for the hands that you can enjoy every day.

Window handles - small design objects with great effect

Window handles are primarily used to open and close a window and are in daily use. A high level of technical requirements must be met, especially when used regularly. But window handles can do more! They are not only practical operating elements, but small design objects with a big effect.

In the Griffwerk range you will find window handles in different sizes, different materials and - thanks to our consistent design across all products - also matching the style of your door handles. So implement your design requirements down to the last detail, whether in matt or shiny, chrome or brass look, in velvet grey or graphite black - with our handles you can set the scene for your old windows or complete your new windows with the matching accessories.

Window handles - shape, colour and material

When choosing your window fittings you should not only consider your window size. Or whether the fittings are lockable. The style of your home and the way your windows open (to the left, right or up) also set an important benchmark for choosing the right design and the right material. 

In our range of handles, you will find stainless steel fittings in various looks and feel.

We are particularly proud of the inner values of our products, which is why we only use stainless steel of alloy 304, also known as 1.4301. Due to its composition, this high-quality steel is rust-free and therefore particularly corrosion-resistant and durable. Stainless steel forms a very thin protective passive layer, which rebuilds even after surface damage due to chemical reactions.

Due to the different processing of this stainless steel, especially in the grinding technique, metallic, matt or smooth surfaces are created. We have taken advantage of these properties in our design objects and enable you to choose from a wide range of designs.

Which variant you choose depends on the window material, style and your personal preferences.

Replace window handles - little effort, great effect

Replacing window handles is easy. Here you will find step-by-step instructions:

  • Removing the cover: Align the handle horizontally to get to the screws that connect the handle to the window. Now you should be able to easily turn the cover that sits over the screws. Attention: Some panels may be glued. You must loosen them carefully, for example with a cutter knife.
     
  • Remove the screws and pull off the window handle: It can happen that screws sometimes get stuck, you can loosen them with a little oil so that you don't damage the screw head. As soon as the screws can be removed, you can simply pull off the window handle. Clean the area where the handle is placed very thoroughly.
     
  • Install your new window handle: Place the new window handle in the same horizontal position as the old handle. Now slide the square into the window frame. Many handles come with new screws in the set, you can also reuse the old screws. Be sure to tighten the screws firmly so that the handle has no play. Finally, close the new cover and the new window handle is ready for use.

Window handles - technical equipment

The window handles are attached to the window frame by means of the 7 mm thick square pin. How deep the square pin must be pushed into the window to lock it depends on the thickness of the window. You can easily measure this in advance with the help of a thin object, for example a knitting needle. To do this, push the knitting needle into the opening as far as it will go and mark the spot with your fingernail. If you now measure this distance with a measuring tape, you will have the length of the pin.

In addition, our window handles are equipped with a sliding bearing for a durable, smooth and above all silent function. Without costly maintenance work!

A design classic from Ulm

From 1952, Max Bill headed the department for architecture and product form at the HfG Ulm. Together with the student Ernst Moeckl, he developed a door handle for the university building during this time. In 2012, GRIFFWERK reedited this handle in close cooperation with the max, binia + jakob bill stiftung, following the preserved originals.

The Ulm Handle by Max Bill

The ULMER HANDLE reedited by GRIFFWERK features the characteristic, soft transition of form from circle to ellipse. A principle based on mathematics, as Max Bill also called for in his 1946 work "the mathematical way of thinking in the art of our time". The ULMER HANDLE BY GRIFFWERK is the world's only licensed reedition and therefore entitled to bear Max Bill's signature.

Look & Feel!

The surface finish developed by GRIFFWERK, soft2touch by GRIFFWERK, combines an extraordinary look with a velvety soft feel. Surfaces make a decisive contribution to a positive product experience. This is especially true for door handles, which are touched countless times every day.

In three colours

In addition to graphite black, there are two other colours to choose from: velvet and cashmere grey. What all surfaces have in common is their exceptional tactile quality. The three new colour shades were developed by GRIFFWERK and coordinated down to the last detail.

Triple finished

For the desired 'soft2touch' effect, three wafer-thin layers are applied. The process has been fine-tuned down to the last detail. A special carrier layer serves as the basis. It has a fine structure so that a lively material effect is created. The texture varies depending on the shade. 'Cashmere' and 'Velvet Grey' are distinguished by a discreetly ground appearance; 'Graphite Black' appears finely grained. The colour tone is defined by the subsequent pigment layer. The particularly pleasant feel of the handles is created by a final soft seal. It also gives the colour shades brilliance and depth.

Inspiration Graphit

We chose an exceptionally matt, very deep black that fits perfectly with the loft-style window and door elements. Glossy black would look much more unsettling, as the reflective surfaces would contrast strongly with the surroundings. Matt simply looks more noble.

soft2touch advantages at one look:

  • Design dream thanks to new colors in cashmere grey, velvet grey (nickel-plated) and graphite black
  • Particularly pleasant to touch due to velvety soft feel
  • Less cold in the hand than stainless steel
  • Silky-matt appearance instead of being polished to a high gloss
  • Available for all systems in the house (glass doors, wooden room doors, windows)
