GreenteQ Stainless Steel Handles are included in the base price for Bildau & Bussmann windows and doors. GreenteQ offers quality, short lead times, and modern aesthetics. GreenteQ prides itself for being design oriented and providing comprehensive and consistently high-quality handles.
Hoppe is the market leader throughout Europe, considered to be the classic German handle, as it is ubiquitous throughout German homes. Hoppe develops, manufactures and provides handles made of aluminum, brass, nylon and stainless steel. They carry a wide variety of options, ranging from modern and colorful to traditional designs.
Franz Schneider Brakel (FSB)
Franz Schneider Brakel is our premium option for handles. FSB originally started in 1881 in Iserlohn, Germany as makers of antique-style cabinet fittings and devotional items in brass. It was in 1909 that Franz Schneider re-located to Brakel and thus began FSB. As a highly specialized boutique shop, FSB hardware was at the forefront of transforming handles from utilitarian items to elements of design at the turn of the century. Today, FSB handles are high-end designer handles with contemporary and traditional designs made of brass.
