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.

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!

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!

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?
