REHAU will exhibit a selection of the following at booth No. 2655:
REHAU T-edge™ Barbed Edgeband
The new REHAU T-edge is a 3 mm semi-rigid barbed edgeband that facilitates a curved edge, even around corners. Offered in more than 200 colors and patterns and able to be hammered into virtually any work surface without sophisticated machinery, REHAU T-edge offers custom woodworking shops the ability to stay competitive while saving on costly overhead.
RAUWORKS™ Acoustic Adjustable Screen
The RAUWORKS acoustic adjustable screen is REHAU’s latest edition to its line of polymer-based acoustical management solutions for today’s open office environments. It provides an innovative combination of sound absorption and partitioning to reduce sound propagation across workstations, and is available in three designs that provide varying degrees of privacy.
Designer Program Edgeband
The new Designer Program of edgeband solutions from REHAU expands the spectrum of colors, patterns, prints, wood grains and glass and metal effects available to designers via the off-the-shelf Express Collection. With the Designer Program, furniture and interior designers can access REHAU’s full array of edgeband solutions in quantities as small as a single roll via REHAU’s Express Collection stock program, making it possible to select edgeband designs on a project-by-project basis.
LaserEdge™ from REHAU is an innovative adhesive-free, non-PVC laser edging technology that facilitates more efficient and environmentally responsible furniture manufacturing processes. A two-layer edgeband offered in proprietary PP, ABS or PMMA polymer formulations, it replaces commonly used PVC edging solutions for all machine technologies currently on the market. By eliminating adhesives, LaserEdge also significantly streamlines the edging application process, reducing both material and labor costs.
PP FlexEdge® and T-Molding
REHAU’s polypropylene (PP) FlexEdge® edgeband and T-molding provide environmentally friendly, PVC-free edging options for furniture manufacturing. Offering processing properties comparable to traditional PVC materials, PP FlexEdge and T-molding deliver on the increasing demand for sustainable, eco-conscious materials that also provide utilitarian solutions and address modern design trends.
Express Collection Edgeband and Tambour
A broad spectrum of REHAU edgeband solutions and tambour door systems are offered in the off-the-shelf Express Collection stock program in quantities as small as a single roll or door. The program encompasses thin, thick, semi-rigid and Designer Program edgeband, as well as tambour door systems in matching and complementary finishes.
Innovative Tambour Door Systems
REHAU tambour door systems suit a wide variety of market applications, with customization options to match size, design and finish preferences, and to fit a variety of horizontal and vertical openings. These integrated, engineered systems require minimal space and provide full access to the cabinet contents—unlike sliding doors or hinged doors that open out into the work area. Their high-quality polymer formulation offers smoother, quieter operation than standard metal doors. Unlike wooden doors, REHAU’s durable polymer systems do not swell or stick with humidity.
Acoustic Line™ Tambour Door System
REHAU’s Acoustic Line™ tambour door system combines industry leading materials and a modern design to offer notably greater sound absorption capabilities than those of conventional cabinets. With traditional acoustical solutions such as hollow ceiling cavities becoming less desirable in modern workspace design, office furniture is more frequently expected to serve dual functionality as a sound barrier. The Acoustic Line tambour door system from REHAU is the first of its kind to successfully promote sound absorption via office furniture cabinetry and partition walls––melding an intelligent storage concept with an effective noise management solution.
VETRO™ Line Tambour Door System
REHAU’s VETRO™ Line tambour door system addresses modern kitchen design trends that incorporate glass doors and translucent materials. The VETRO Line combines the easy-to-install REHAU tambour door cassette system with 2-inch (50 mm) heat-tempered security glass slats, offering a sleek, translucent door solution for a wide variety of cabinet applications. The complete line also now includes clear, black and white color options.
Appliance Garage Tambour Door Kit
REHAU offers the appliance garage tambour door kit as part of its Express Collection stock program of edgeband, tambour door systems and related accessories. The complete, ready-to-install kit provides visually appealing countertop storage that offers convenient access to frequently used kitchen appliances.
ECOSTYLE™ Green Design Solutions
REHAU offers the next generation of non-PVC products suitable for office design, store fixture and "green" kitchen projects. REHAU’s ECOSTYLE™ line of edgeband and tambour doors is available in the same selection of sizes and finishes––solid colors, wood grains, patterns and metallics––as its PVC line.
SoftEdge™ Edgeband Line
REHAU’s SoftEdge™ edgeband line offers an impact cushioning technology for softer, quieter cabinet operation. SoftEdge also provides enhanced sealing that protects the inside of the cabinet against dust and other elements.
