2016 Resource Protection Certificate

Maximum product protection with minimum environmental impact – this is our credo when it comes to packaging. It goes without saying that we believe that not only our closet and room divider systems but also our planet’s resources should be protected. To this end, Interseroh GmbH regularly carries out audits based on the Fraunhofer Institute’s UMSICHT study to identify how much of a contribution recycling of our transport packaging is making to saving primary resources and avoiding greenhouse gas emissions. The “resources SAVED by recycling” study and our personal 2016 Resource Protection Certificate confirm that we were able to achieve a new best performance record last year. By returning raumplus packaging to the recycling flow we were able to avoid 20,903 kilograms of greenhouse gases and save 177 metric tons of resources in 2016. This is equivalent to the weight of 417 apple trees – an image that is as inspiring as it is interesting and inspires us to continue to work hard to act responsibly. Towards our customers and the environment.

Under Pressure

If you want to succeed in your everyday life, you need to be able to stand up to pressure. When it comes to our doors and systems, we want to be able to guarantee this to you, so we regularly put our products to the test. Or you could say – we put our products under pressure. Sample constructions and functional endurance tests; load and comparative testing – they must continually prove their functionality, quality and durability. Here at raumplus we even test how vandal-proof they are. The result? Over the last three years the technical department alone has carried out some 1.25 million test cycles and our sliding doors have covered a distance of just under 2,500 km on the test bench. This was supplemented by additional quality tests. We consciously subject our systems to everything we can think of because if they pass our tests we can happily allow them to leave the plant to undergo the daily wear and tear that makes up the daily life of a piece of furniture. Because they will then have proven that they are great, even when under pressure.

raumplus accessory

raumplus listens to its female customers. And they kept on asking for a smart purse/bag storage option that would safely protect different size and format purses and bags from kinks, scratches, and tears in the leather. The purse/bag holder we developed in response has become a firm favorite with the ladies since being launched at the IMM 2016 in Cologne. The cross between a hanger and a specially shaped metal bracket offers non-slip storage for purses, no matter what the material. All you have to do is hang the purse handle or shoulder strap over the rectangular hook attached to the clothes hanger top that can be hung on the clothes rail in your closet or interior system. Making it child’s play to quickly find the right purse to go with your outfit; get hold of it easily; and then put it back into the closet, where it will be protected from scratches and dust. Good organization that not only benefits the eye but also the closet, since there is no longer any risk of shelf surfaces being scratched as purses are pushed or pulled along them. The 2-piece set, available in Dark Bronze or Silver options, is a true professional, even if it does nothing but hang around all day.

Please, Mr. Postman

Our ambition is to use our systems to fulfil everyone’s personal interior dreams. In addition to custom-made manufacturing this also means having a wide range of visual options. We thus, for example, have far in excess of 2 000 sliding door panels in glass, paint, décor and veneer to choose from. Should, during the final decision-making process, the customer need to directly compare their favorites from among this huge diversity of woods, patterns and colors or want to match our product to their existing interior we ready to help with advice, action and panel samples. Customers can borrow these samples via their local raumplus dealer. An elaborate service that helps the customer to make a decision when things are tricky but also demands the highest degree of accuracy from us with regard to labelling and documentation. Because, although this mail order service is an exception to the generally uncomplicated selection rule, every year we still dispatch thousands of panel samples by mail. Mr. Pietruszka and his department make sure that they keep an overview of the samples. An important task since, in addition to the comprehensive offering, there are also some super-tricky cases such as four different white glass options. So we would like to say “Thank you” to the team for their daily attention to detail, that prevents both the customer and us from making annoying, expensive mistakes. Simply exemplary!
