Named products

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?

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.

Just the greatest

Our new IMA Novimat edge banding machine is in a class of its own in every regard. Manufactured by IMA Klessmann, based in Lübbecke in East Westphalia/Germany, it proudly bears the “Made in Germany” label of quality, just like our own products. In order to be able to house the six metric tonnes heavy, 9.5 meter long giant we had to move a special production workshop wall in our manufacturing area. A 70-tonne crane then used all its massive strength to lift the machine into place in its new home. The IMA is now fitting our systems with water-resistant edging using PU adhesive to do so – and achieving a top performance of up to 30 running meters per minute. This ensures that our products are perfect for use in kitchens and bathrooms as well as also for overseas export to countries with difficult climatic conditions such as high humidity. So, after successfully surviving this strenuous installation work we can now settle down to enjoy our heavy-weight, technically high-achieving new addition which is just the greatest!

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?
