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?

IMM 2017: People, Animals, Sensations
The Ultimate Experience!
Here’s to the New!
A (Phil-)Harmonious Holiday!
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.
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.
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!
