From Italian doors to Italian flooring, there’s been a recent demand for Italian-crafted products. Among the more sought after products, is Italian hardware.

The following will outline the attractiveness of some of the leading Italian brands in today’s market.

At the same time, the Valli&Valli handle represents an endless style of design that can fit with any trend. Associated with Assa Abloy with over 8000 followers on social media, and dealers all over the US, this company vows to being the global leader in door opening solutions, meeting end-user demands for safety, security and convenience.

KOBLENZ is another major player in the world of Italian hardware. The KOBLENZ product category offers a catalogue with several innovative sliding solutions and a large number of invisible and adjustable hinges for hinged doors. Reliability, quality and design are in this case more than ever synonymous to the well known Made in Italy product and are actually the most important characteristic. According to KOBLENZ, the idea is to represent the four natural elements: earth, air, water and fire, with the addition of the fifth element which is represented by the space (the infinity), used as a meeting room. All of them are entirely realized in worked glass with photographic images of high quality and emotional impact, and are made even more precious by design doors: the elegant visible sliding system K2O, enriched by refined handle Circle.Tuesday, June 14, 2016.
AGB- Alban Giacomo is an Italian company specialized in hardware for doors, windows and shutters. For more than six decades AGB has provided manufactures worldwide with optimal solutions for use and for blocking of top quality, durable, lasting internal and external windows and doors. AGB products are renowned for their quality and for their reliability over time. AGB guarantees that its products are constructed and assembled in Italy on its own premises and with certified standard materials, technology and know-how. Many firms have chosen to delocalize to retain their competitive edge in a globalized world. AGB has adopted an alternative approach: while posing considerable challenges, their strategies allow them to implement overall stakeholder- oriented policies and focus on total quality. AGB also has dealers in the US which is a very prominent Italian Door and Hardware company.
In conclusion, these top Italian brands, though located in the United States all have an international appeal. Italian hardware is very unique in the manufacturing process but if you require top quality and exclusive design, there is no second guessing that Italian hardware is the way to go.
