19.01.2015   New fitting series for WSS at BAU 2015 in Munich
Along with the new design of window and door handles, the newly developed panic bar handle draws attention not only by its clear and puristic design: the clever arrangement of minimalistic components allows measure restrictions even with a narrow door width. Hence there is almost no limit for the creative freedom of the planner. The new panic bar handle is also available with LED technology in RGB colors. This allows an intuitive handling in case of escape and an integration of lighting technology into the design concept of the building.
