Door handles

Stylisch living

Door fittings are our passion. For us they are the jewel in the crown of the door. We love the different haptics of the forms and surfaces: angular, clear, cool and modern or cosy, softly cuddly. There is no element of our home that we touch more often every day. Our recommendation: Enjoy the variety, test, touch and find your personal door fitting.
Our door fittings are made of stainless steel, either matt or polished.

The elaborate surface polish gives the door handle a noble finish. In matt brushed stainless steel, on the other hand, the high-quality steel is particularly stylish. With GRIFFWERK, the fine lines of the grinding pattern dynamically follow the line shape of the design and thus support the aesthetic effect. Thanks to our extensive product range, you are guaranteed to find the right door handle for your home.

A modern look

Existing doors can be given a completely different, modern look with new fittings. As a rule, a new fitting also fits on old doors. Long backplates are suitable for covering all drill holes. An overview of our long backplate sets can be found further down on this page.

Combining different design styles creates tension and dynamics. Especially in old apartments, the accents of modern door handles have a stimulating effect. When choosing your door handle set, you can pick up details of the architecture or the interior. This creates a modern and harmonious overall effect.

In the GRIFFWERK assortment you will find fittings for the apartment entrance door, wooden interior doors, glass doors and even window handles - modern in a matching design.

Door handles: Which design variants are available?

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.

New cosiness


Hello Hygge! Cosiness, naturalness and tasteful restraint determine the Interiour trends. Home should be a place of security - no matter what happens out there in the world. That's why we furnish ourselves all the more comfortably. Warm tones and materials are increasingly asserting themselves against the large-scale white of recent years. Our handles with the velvety soft stainless steel look of soft2touch are a perfect match. And in three colors they complete the hip Interiour looks.

Especially in the color cashmere grey, handles in stainless steel look with soft2touch are a daily luxury - for eyes, hands and every 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.

Door handles: FAQ

Which door handle?

Mortice lock door handle sets, BB sets for short, are suitable for room doors made of wood. Doors that are typically equipped with a door lock cylinder require a door handle with profile cylinder insert, or PZ for short. The most common door handle for use on bathrooms and toilets is the WC set with closer. For more intelligent closing and locking, there are door handles with Griffwerk smart2lock technology. The locking mechanism is integrated in the handle. You no longer need a key rosette. Smart2lock handles also impress with a modern and puristic design.

Which material for door handles?

Match the material for door fittings to the look of the door. Stainless steel and aluminium go well with glass doors - whereas brass door handles tend to harmonise better with dark wood and plastic fittings are most suitable for lacquered or powder-coated doors. For heavy doors, stainless steel handles are preferable to all others. 
Stainless steel fittings made of rust-free stainless steel, optionally matt or polished, are of particularly high quality. GRIFFWERK door handles in soft2touch surfaces offer exciting accents. Their velvety soft feel makes them particularly pleasant to touch.

Where to buy door handles?

It is best to buy from specialised retailers, such as timber merchants or glaziers. You can find recommended dealers at

How to disinfect door handles?

To disinfect a door handle set, you need a virucidal disinfectant for surfaces and disposable wipes - such as from a kitchen roll.
In the first step, wet the door handle completely with disinfectant. The areas where the palm of the hand rests on the door handle are particularly important. For WC sets, do not forget the WC lock. 
Afterwards, the disinfectant must act according to the manufacturer's instructions. Follow the respective product instructions.
Finally, wipe the surface with the disposable cloth. When doing so, avoid rubbing the cloth back and forth on surfaces that have already been disinfected and avoid using the cloth several times.
To ensure that the surface remains beautiful after frequent disinfection, it can be wiped with water or soapy water. Disposable cloths should also be used for this purpose. Throw the water away afterwards.

Door handles: How often to clean?

Basically, weekly cleaning is sufficient. First remove dust or similar particles with a dry towel, then wet with detergent and wipe thoroughly. In pandemic times like Covid-19, we recommend disinfecting hard surfaces that are touched often several times a day. So if there is a risk of your door handles being touched by infected or possibly infected people, wet the door handle with disinfectant. Pay special attention to the areas where the hand rests. Allow the disinfectant to take effect. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions. Finally, wipe the surface once with a disposable towel.

Is it easy to change door handles?

Door handles are very easy to change: Remove the old handles - to do this, simply loosely turn the small grub screw on one side of the door and pull both door handles outwards. Then remove the door plates or rosettes and mount the new handle set in the reverse order of removal. Finished.

Are door handles normed?

Many dimensions of door fittings are standardised - such as the square spindle and the distance between the lever handle and the keyhole.

To ensure that every square spindle fits in every door, they all have the same cross-section of 8 by 8 millimetres - except for fire doors, where there is an extra millimetre. However, the length of square spindles differs. It depends on the dimensions of the handle set.

The keyhole is 72 millimetres from the centre of the lever handle on all room doors.

Attention: The outer dimensions of the door handles and fittings are different. When replacing them, make sure that the new one is at least as large or larger than the old one.
