Whether in Europe or Asia; among architects or end consumers, the raumplus 1200 sliding door system and its LED-lit “Lighting” model are a huge hit. The special profile geometry makes it possible to combine door widths of up to 1.80 meters with an ultra-lightweight look. The jury of the 2017 German Design Award is currently the third team of experts to decide that this is award-winning.

An ecological ray of light
We have given the “green light” for a significant investment in the environment and the future in two senses of the word. The old neon strip lights used in some 10 000m² of manufacturing and warehouse space have been replaced with new LED strip lights. Although it will take seven years to recoup the money spent on the cost-intensive programme it will, however, achieve a saving of 60 tonnes of CO² annually. This is roughly equivalent to the weight of 12 000 sliding door frames including the top and bottom tracks. We believe that this is a striking environment-friendly lighting effect which is worth the financial advance payment! And we also hope that it will encourage other companies to look into internal factors which have an environmental impact. A current example cited in business magazine “Wirtschaftswoche” demonstrates that seemingly positive factors can sometimes actually prove to be wolves in sheep’s clothing. According to the magazine the pollutants generated when frying a single hamburger – consisting of fat, soot, smoke and steam, are the same as the air pollution caused by a diesel truck on a 230-kilometre long journey. The task is to identify these kinds of assumed “peccadillos”. We found one not in the kitchen but on the ceiling. And you?
Flexible but Down to Earth
raumplus bottom tracks can be used on any surface. No matter whether carpet or tiles; parquet or concrete; landmarked or brand new; our bottom tracks are always up to the job. The inserted version can make rooms barrier-free; the surface version is just 6 millimeters in height, making it easy to walk over. Single or multi-track the bottom tracks guide our sliding doors safely in the long term, even over the uneven floors typical for old buildings, and can also be perfectly matched to any RAL color.
Some 15,000 doors pass through the hands of our six door builders every year. And every one of them bears the signature of the person who manufactured it. We don’t do this because we want to market our doors as pieces of art with the cachet of a “limited edition”. Nonetheless every one of these custom-fit, hand-made doors is a unique product and a beautiful piece of craftsmanship whose creator deserves to be named. In addition to this, the fact that the doors do not remain anonymous means that our employees noticeably identify more strongly with the product. Which is no surprise since everyone wants to show that their skill and know-how does credit to their name. And you would sign up for that program too, wouldn’t you?
