What is the difference between a reinforced mechanism and a standard mechanism ?

  • Reinforced mechanisms are micro-mechanisms suitable for intensive use, as in a hotel environment. Their size allows for an infinite number of optional styles. They are slightly slimmer, so we recommend their use for our brass design Collections. Fitting without connection to earth.
  • Standard mechanisms are those with automatic connection (no earth connection). They are quieter. These mechanisms are suitable for all our Collections except for brass.
  • Please note: Some of our products are exclusively compatible with our reinforced mechanisms: reading lights, push buttons, narrow short and narrow long formats, assemblies with LEDs.
