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?

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!
Climate Protection Certificate
The greatest possible degree of product protection while putting the least possible strain on the environment – this is our mission when it comes to packaging. That this strategy is producing results has now been confirmed by Interseroh GmbH, the company that recycles our transport packaging for us.
Based on an in-depth study by the prestigious Fraunhofer UMSICHT Institute on the reduction of greenhouse gases Inteseroh has established that our recycling efforts last year resulted in a 26,647.80 kilogram reduction in greenhouses gases. This is equivalent to the average CO² emissions of a car driving 180,000 kilometers. The raw materials that we have recycled join what is known as the materials flow, thus not only avoiding unnecessary CO² emissions but also saving an additional almost 36,000 kg of resources. We view the corresponding “2012 Climate Protection Certificate” that has been issued to us as both a confirmation of our activities in this field and a motivation to continue and expand them. We invite all our partners and business contacts to join us in these efforts.
If you want to succeed in your everyday life, you need to be able to stand up to pressure. When it comes to our doors and systems, we want to be able to guarantee this to you, so we regularly put our products to the test. Or you could say – we put our products under pressure. Sample constructions and functional endurance tests; load and comparative testing – they must continually prove their functionality, quality and durability. Here at raumplus we even test how vandal-proof they are. The result? Over the last three years the technical department alone has carried out some 1.25 million test cycles and our sliding doors have covered a distance of just under 2,500 km on the test bench. This was supplemented by additional quality tests. We consciously subject our systems to everything we can think of because if they pass our tests we can happily allow them to leave the plant to undergo the daily wear and tear that makes up the daily life of a piece of furniture. Because they will then have proven that they are great, even when under pressure.
