One product set to be featured is the Vario D10 system. This UL-certified system brings European technology to the closet industry, allowing for easy installation and adjustability without needing rewiring. The Vario D10 system is engineered to simplify the installation process, providing a solution that remains cost-effective and efficient. With the ability to adjust shelving heights without rewiring, users can easily customize their closets over time, adapting to changing storage needs.

The Vario D10 system allows users to make adjustments to shelving without rewiring.

Key advantages of the Vario D10 system 

Ease of installation: Elektra's system simplifies the installation process, allowing for quick and straightforward setup. The system's design ensures that anyone can easily manage it, eliminating the need for specialized expertise.

Efficiency: Installers benefit from significantly reducing installation time as preps and installations are completed in the shop. This time-saving feature enhances efficiency, enabling installers to handle multiple jobs in a day.

Added value in the shop: The preps for the system are completed in the shop, reducing the burden on external installers. This means that the added value traditionally associated with on-site installation remains in the shop, streamlining the overall process.

Elegant design

Elektra takes pride in its European roots, bringing a touch of elegance to its lighting fixtures. The company's commitment to European design is evident in its products' slim and stylish profile. The fixtures seamlessly blend with various closet styles, offering a universal appeal that transcends geographical boundaries.

Elektra's lighting solutions are not limited to illumination; they also provide dynamic color management. Users can adjust the light color to suit different times of the day, creating a personalized and ambient environment within the closet.

What to expect at the Elektra booth

At Closets Expo, Elektra's booth will feature practical demonstrations of the Vario D10 system. Three separate closet sections will showcase the system's adaptability and ease of use. Attendees can witness firsthand how the Vario D10 system addresses common challenges associated with closet lighting.

Beyond Elektra’s booth, another way for Expo attendees to see the ease of lighting installation is the Closets Lighting Installation Clinic, which takes place on Thursday, April 18, at 10:30 a.m. Sponsored by Elektra and led by industry veteran Eric Marshall, Closet Training Institute, this clinic will focus on lighting and how to install it. The main objective is to empower designers to confidently sell lighting solutions while assuring installers that the process is now more straightforward than ever.

Elektra General Manager Boris Niessing said that the growing demand for lighting upgrades in closets emphasizes that lighting has become a crucial element in enhancing the overall ambiance of living spaces. And Elektra's focus on user-friendly, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing lighting solutions positions them at the forefront of meeting this demand, he added.
