Some projects require lever designs for locksets and panic hardware that are beyond the selection of standard “vanilla” levers offered by all of the commercial manufacturers. In some cases, even the “European” designs don’t fill the bill, especially when special finishes are desired. I’ve often run into this with museum projects I’ve specified.
For those projects, we have teamed up with Frascio International, to provide an almost unlimited variety of lever handles that can be used with Schlage and Falcon mortise locks, as well as Von Duprin and Falcon panic hardware. For projects that require a mix of mortise and tubular locksets with matching lever styles, Frascio’s tubular locks are commercial grade and will perform well over time.
The options are virtually unlimited…custom levers, split finishes, lever one side / knob on the other…no problem!
Visit www.FrascioInternational.com and download their 2009 catalog to see many of the levers, door pulls, and other decorative hardware available, and then let us help you pair the selected designs with hardware to suit your project. To inquire about custom designs, contact Frascio directly.
