Danish Window and Door Handles

When you have a range as large as ours, with multiple manufacturers, the number of handle options becomes quite large! Luckily, when broken-down into sections, everything starts to make sense – each factory has their default option with a few variations, and these are obviously designed to suit their product range as a whole. If in doubt, the manufacturer’s “standard” or “default” option is often also their recommended one.


STM’s standard key-locking and non-locking window handles are satin chrome, and then you have black and white options for the same styles. Tilt-turn handles do look different (straight rather than cranked handles with a larger diameter and backplate), although this does make sense since this is a fundamentally different mechanism.

STM’s entrance doors have a very minimal, straight steel handle with separated rose. And the terrace doors are essentially a larger version of the standard satin chrome non-locking window handle. The separated rose for both door options can have either a key-lock or thumbturn internally.

Unik Funkis

Unik have a very traditionally-Danish tried-and-tested approach to their handles. Being a very DK-focused factory, naturally, they offer variations of architectural satin chrome on every unit. You’ll see these styles of handles all over Denmark in a variety of applications, so we know that any factory-fitted handle from Unik Funkis is going to stand any test of time.

The window handles offer a couple of different child-lock and security features, whilst the door handles are always the classic Scandinavian rose key-above-handle arrangement. Again, always made with the hard-wearing and time-proven satin chrome finish.

Standard Handle Types:

Push in lever standard Matte chrome plated
Push in lever with automatic locking Matte chrome plated
Push in lever with lock manual Matte chrome plated

Unik use Hoppe window handles as standard for their Tilt turn windows

Unik supply their doors with handles on a rose as is standard for our danish products.

Sunflex Sliding Door

There are two main options for Sunflex sliders: the standard D-shaped handle is normally colour-coded to match the frame (but it can be a contrasting colour if you prefer). A more premium-feeling option would be the straight stainless steel variant. Alternatively, choosing a lift-and-slide mechanism of course means the need for a lift-and-slide handle.

Lacuna Bifold Door

Lacuna’s straight steel handles are designed to match in perfectly with the hinges, all with a marine-grade coating. If you’re not a fan of the steel finish, then the same ironmongery can be made with a black or a white finish.

Aftermarket Handles

For some of our manufacturers, there is an option to supply the product without any handles fitted. This allows us to look for aftermarket options that hopefully match in perfectly with what you have in mind. Monkey-tail window handles are particularly popular, as this is a traditional British style that none of our European factories offer. Please do be aware that most handles you’ll find online will be designed for use on a UK product…and our Danish and German products do have subtle differences that need considering. Please do ask if you’re unsure!
