Design Awards 2015


Design Awards 2015 have just announced Manital’s Saturn lever design as the winner  “2015 GOOD DESIGN AWARDS”

A prestigious prize awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. The award is posted on the Museum web site at under the Hardware category.

Manital are manufactures of quality brass lever door hardware of which we have proudly distributed for over 15 years. Unfortunately the market in recent years has steered away from the beautiful Italian designs and their plated finishes in preference of the stainless steel lever versions. The manufacturers of stainless steel levers cannot replicate the architectural designs seen in brass levers and I am sure there will be a return to “design” features sometime in the future.

In the meantime, if you are looking for variation, design and function, then don’t be afraid to re-look at the brass range. FRANKsecure maintain a showroom with designs from Manital, Olivari, Kaba and Colombo.
