Los Angeles, CA – January 2017 – Uniting the clean lines of contemporary home design with the fashion-forward aesthetics of European style, EMTEK’s new minimal STRETTO 1.5×5 rectangular rosette is quickly gaining ground among America’s hottest interior designers. The sleek and modern narrow trim hardware embraces a distinctive shape for a chic, refined look that does not rely on complicated mortise door prep.

STRETTO’s narrow sideplate lockset instead uses a tubular latch that’s available in passage, thumb-turn privacy, and keyed entry, as well as dummy functions. It can be paired with any brass EMTEK knob or lever, resulting in over 90 combinations in 5 different finishes that allow you to mix and match to your taste.

STRETTO is also available in a 28° rotation tubular latch for easy operation. Measuring 1-1/2” wide by 5” high, the sleek design of the STRETTO requires a 1 ¼” face bore and 3 ⅜” center to center 2-hole door preparation for privacy and keyed configurations.Available in Polished Chrome (US26), Oil Rubbed Bronze (US10B), Satin Nickel (US15), Flat Black (US19) or Satin Brass (US4) finishes – or as a split finish between the handle and rosette – STRETTO provides timeless modern style and function.

As with all of EMTEK’s products, each order is custom assembled in our Southern California facility and typically ships within 2-3 business days.

All of Emtek’s new products will be shown at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando from January 10 to 12th, 2017. Emtek is in the Hall at booth #W1311. Team members are available to answer any questions about all product offerings.
