Under Pressure

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.

raumplus accessory

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.

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.

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?
