But what is the difference between high standards and raising the bar? We put the craftsmanship of our products to the test and found that each of our handles can endure 10 million uses. With an average of 20 uses a day that makes a lifespan of 1370 years. That’s why we confidently refitted Danasvej with reused lever handles, because we know, when produced correctly, they will last a lifetime.
Upcycling of SU styrelsen
When the old office of SU Styrelsen (Public Administration for The Danish students' Grants and Loans Scheme) were to be repurposed as student accommodation, it was done with great deftness to the reusing and upcycling of the original elements.
It is often the small things that makes the biggest impact, and when Contractor Einar Kornerup contacted one of our Danish partners during the remodelling of SU styrelsen's office space, focus was on optimising the building from an environmental point of view.
Having seen that the original Knud Holscher lever handles were still as enduring as when first specified, it was natural that these should continue into the new abodes as a way to repurpose, reuse and avoid unnecessary waste.
The Locksmith therefore carefully dismounted and stored the excisting lever handles during construction work, and remounted all lever handles with new screws and PVC bushes so that they could live in the spaces they occupy, forever.
From the sourcing of non-corrosive high quality AISI316 stainless steel to the unique d line ball bearing system of 21 balls that roll against each other behind its lever roses, our lever handles will stand the test of time. In their technical design, our levers are designed for constant use, swift and easy installation as well as low maintenance. They are certified and conform to the highest quality- and fire standards.
