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.

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?

Please, Mr. Postman

Our ambition is to use our systems to fulfil everyone’s personal interior dreams. In addition to custom-made manufacturing this also means having a wide range of visual options. We thus, for example, have far in excess of 2 000 sliding door panels in glass, paint, décor and veneer to choose from. Should, during the final decision-making process, the customer need to directly compare their favorites from among this huge diversity of woods, patterns and colors or want to match our product to their existing interior we ready to help with advice, action and panel samples. Customers can borrow these samples via their local raumplus dealer. An elaborate service that helps the customer to make a decision when things are tricky but also demands the highest degree of accuracy from us with regard to labelling and documentation. Because, although this mail order service is an exception to the generally uncomplicated selection rule, every year we still dispatch thousands of panel samples by mail. Mr. Pietruszka and his department make sure that they keep an overview of the samples. An important task since, in addition to the comprehensive offering, there are also some super-tricky cases such as four different white glass options. So we would like to say “Thank you” to the team for their daily attention to detail, that prevents both the customer and us from making annoying, expensive mistakes. Simply exemplary!
