Honoured for innovation, sustainability and design

Our most important awards 2023

In 2023, we have achieved something that goes beyond facts and figures:

Expert juries and trade audiences have honoured our innovative materials, concepts and products - recognising what we have been working on for years:
We combine creation, development and technology to create award-worthy system technology for doors.

The five awards are more than just for prizes - they are proof of our constant striving for excellence and innovation.

We were also honoured with the TOP 100 Award 2024 for this.

This is confirmation: ECO Schulte is one of the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany. This is not a miracle - but the result of our efforts throughout the entire company. The management has committed the ECO team to innovation and design and has already achieved these remarkable successes in the first few years of implementation.

Four awards for MOOM / made out of mussels

Innovative material, sustainable concept

With MOOM, we are launching an innovative design campaign. We are venturing into the development of a sustainable material made from mussel shells and breaking completely new ground.

DETAIL Product Award 2023

1st place -
Finishing and Interiors category

The jury writes:

With Moom, ECO Schulte presents a door handle in a classic L-shape under the Randi brand. Around 90 % of the material used consists of crushed mussel shells, recycled plastic bottles and biomaterials. They give the handle a marbled look and a soft, satin finish. This material composition makes each lever handle unique.

Architecture + Construction Innovation Award from the trade journal AIT

MOOM prevailed against 136 innovations from 70 companies at BAU 2023. The architecture and design competition honours products and solutions that particularly meet the needs of architects. Not only was an aesthetic product honoured here - MOOM also fulfils the requirements that architects have in terms of sustainability.


Innovative Material 2023

MOOM realises the developers' claim: "We wanted to find a material that has never existed on the market for the production of door handles before." - Mussel shells absorb CO₂ and are a residual product of industrial food production. They are normally regarded as waste with no useful value. Plastic waste is also produced in large quantities - which is why it is important to recycle and reuse it.


Innovative Architecture 2023

The jury writes:

To present its innovative and sustainable composite material MOOM®, the Danish architecture firm Hammer chose one of the most commonplace objects in architecture: the door handle. A clever move, as the new development made from mussel shells, upcycled PET and biomaterial can be experienced both visually and tactilely. In a house, the door handle immediately communicates that the building is climate-conscious.

"Pursuing ideas, checking, correcting and not letting up - that has earned us a lot of recognition. With MOOM, the new material on the door, we have dared a lot and won four times!"

An award for free swing door closer FTS III

We combine the best and the most important aspects of the door: easy access for people and safety in hazardous situations. The newly developed FTS III fits perfectly into our overall system - technically, visually and functionally.


Innovative Interior 2023

The jury writes:

The award honours relevant contemporary developments and special design achievements. Both apply to the FTS III: in addition to its functional qualities for greater accessibility and safety, the FTS III impresses with its simple design in a harmonious cut.
