New LaserEdgeâ¢ from REHAU is an innovative adhesive-free, non-PVC polypropylene (PP) laser edging technology that facilitates more efficient and environmentally responsible furniture manufacturing processes. A patented 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.

REHAU introduces polypropylene (PP) FlexEdgeÂ® edgeband and T-molding as environmentally friendly, PVC-free edging solutions for furniture manufacturing. Offering comparable processing properties 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
REHAU edgeband solutions and tambour door systems are offered in the off-the-shelf Express Collection stocking program. The program encompasses thin, thick, semi-rigid, grain-through, fluted, Magicâ¢ Translucent Metallic, Magicâ¢ Metallic Line and Magic Creativoâ¢ 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 contentsâunlike 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, REHAUâs durable polymer systems do not swell or stick with humidity.
Acoustic-Lineâ¢ Tambour Door System
REHAUâs Acoustic-Lineâ¢ tambour door system combines industry leading materials and a modern design to offer nearly seven times the sound absorption capabilities 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 wallsââmelding an intelligent storage concept with an effective noise management solution.
VETROâ¢ Line Tambour Door System
REHAUâs VETROâ¢ 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.
Appliance Garage Tambour Door Kit
REHAU offers the new appliance garage tambour door kit as part of its Express Collection stock program of edgeband, tambour door systems and related accessories.

REHAUâs ECOSTYLEâ¢ line of edgeband and tambour doors is available in the same selection of sizes and finishesââsolid colors, woodgrains, patterns and metallicsââas its PVC line.
Impressionsâ¢ Edgeband Line
REHAU provides its ImpressionsTM edgeband line to address the latest design trends in prominent and captivating furniture edging. The Impressions line includes a variety of optionsââfrom natural wood to modern waves and linesââthat enhance the edgebandâs role as an important design feature.

It is additionally available for customized edging designs, in either PVC or alternative materials.
Inspirationsâ¢ Edgeband Designs
Recognizing the importance of cultivating innovation, artistry and originality in industry, REHAU has made âindividual design solutionsâ a reality with its Inspirationâ¢ edgeband. Inspirationsâ¢ is a fluid pool of designs that apply unique pattern, shape and texture against numerous âinspirationalâ sourcesââfrom exaggerated natural woodgrains, to the mimicking of a lace tablecloth, to a new take on the geometric patterns in modern artistry. Inspirations graphically translates artistry to edgebanding via REHAUâs RAUDIGITALâ¢ printing technology, which enables accurate and efficient sampling and production.
SoftEdgeâ¢ Edgeband Line
