Welcome to the world of door handles designed to delight.
Launched in 2017, the APRILE collection embodies timeless beauty based on harmony and classic proportions. APRILE door handles and door knobs are designed for customers looking for original but balanced forms, far from pretentious designs or fleeting trends. The highest quality materials, advanced technological processes, and the vast experience of respected global manufacturers guarantee perfect workmanship and comfortable use of each piece of ironmongery with our logo.
We strongly believe that beautiful objects can also be functional, and vice versa. That’s why in our interior door knobs and handles designs we used classic proportions and divisions, and based the patterns on shapes natural to the human eye in combination with unique inspirations.
This is how the APRILE brand and our beauty patterns were created, and gained their current form. The APRILE collection handles have successfully passed tests at the Institute of Precision Mechanics, obtaining the 4th (highest) use category and the 7th (highest) durability category, covering 200,000 duty cycles.
The above parameters are confirmed by the National Declaration of Functional Properties.
Since the beginning of APRILE brand, we closely cooperate with several renowned Polish designers, such as Maja Ganszyniec, Jan Kochański, Krystian Kowalski, and Tomek Rygalik. Thanks to this, we aren’t limited to only one design style, and are able to continuously create new products and innovative solutions.
APRILE’s design partners share with us common values: passion for design, the ability to combine function and style in a unique way, high craftsmanship standards, and attention to every single detail no matter how small it seems to be.
Door handles and knobs, as well as window handles, cabinet knobs, floor door stops and other ironmongery pieces available in the APRILE collection, are made of zamac (an alloy of zinc and aluminium, called also ZnAl), and brass. This guarantees extremely high durability and wear resistance of our interior door knobs and lever handles, thanks to which they can be safely used both in residential or commercial spaces.
We have ensured that our handles meet all expectations of a modern world by creating a fusion of premium quality, comfort, and aesthetics.
