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?

The easy way

We can make things easy for you! Our sliding doors can be set into motion without any effort. An integrated sliding door brake ensures that they stop just as easily. The brake mechanism, integrated into the top track, is invisible from the outside but has an effect that doesn’t need to hide. It can slow down even doors with heavy panels without any effort, pulling them into the designated stopping position. This reduces wear and tear both on the materials and on the user’s muscles and nerves. A comfortably easy way, where the only thing not to be stopped is your enthusiasm!

Take things lightly

The new year is boom time for them – programs to reduce your weight and make you more mobile. Our Rima Fino system shows how it’s done. The system has been significantly slimmed down and, thanks to its mobility and fresh look, has opened up new applications for use. With 25 mm material thickness and a loading capacity of 360 kg the original Rima version is far heavier and a true tower of strength and will remain in the series for times when there is a heavy load to bear. In addition to this, there is now also a 12 mm slim-line variation of the Rima Fino. It can be used as an attractive open room divider or as a mobile hall closet solution with integrated mirror. Twelve different surfaces in paint, décor or the current Urban Structures wood patterns are available and can be individually combined with four strong accent colors. Partitioning walls for flexible shelf division; sliding doors; clothes hooks or boxes for small items – there are plenty of elements to configure your very own personal interior design solution. All in keeping with the Rima Fino motto: Take things lightly!

Mix & Match

Variable sliding door or fixed dividing wall? At raumplus this is not an either-or decision because both options can be combined to create a whole that is both creative and harmonious. Or as the dividing line between kitchen and dining room with sliding doors that opened when the cooking is finished while keeping the preparation area permanently hidden behind dividing walls or to structure an attic space with static walls under the eaves and sliding doors in the taller center of the room – there are numerous options to achieve a perfect Mix & Match of systems. So get mixing!
