raumplus protects the environment

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?

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!

Just listen to the music

You can’t see anything but there’s a lot to hear. No matter whether you need the right sound for a pajama party or soft background music to chill out in your living room – Turn can deliver. Our flexible closet newcomer, available as a stand-alone piece of furniture or for custom fitting in an alcove, can be supplied with an optional, innovative audio system. Ultra-flat DML loudspeakers are integrated into the hinged doors, with and a subwoofer with amplifier is located in the center of the closet. Thanks to their 180° x 180° angle of radiation the speakers provide consistently great resonance, no matter where the listener is standing. The subwoofer works off a mains socket and can be controlled using the jack plugs or wirelessly via Bluetooth. So in addition to its many other assets, Turn also scores points as a cutting-edge piece of media furniture providing great acoustics – and all without the owner having to make visual compromises. The same goes for our sliding doors, which can also be fitted with the same high fidelity sound system. A great sounding convenience feature that is all part of the program at raumplus.
