REHAU announced the launch of a new line of fully fabricated custom cabinet doors for modern kitchens and baths. This product line gives customers the option to choose between high-gloss, polymer glass, matte and natural textured woodgrain surfaces in more than 50 finishes and timeless colors. By offering fully fabricated doors, REHAU is making it easier for cabinet makers, regardless of their volume, to take advantage of the growing demand for modern components.

The new cabinet line features slab-front doors in an expanding range of surfaces that offer a manufacturing-friendly alternative to high-end lacquered and glass finishes. Headlining the cabinet door range are three collections – RAUVISIO brilliant mirror high-gloss, RAUVISIO crystal polymer back-painted glass and FENIX NTM® nanotech matt surfaces. New this fall is the RAUVISIO terra textured woodgrain surface and several more high-gloss and matte options.

“We’re beginning to see a trend away from face frame cabinets to frameless slab doors, which look amazing with contemporary materials in modern interiors,” said Jesse Collins, senior marketing specialist with REHAU’s furniture solutions division. “High-gloss, glass and matte surfaces also work well when mixed with materials such as wood and brick to create an industrial or loft-style design.”

The cabinet doors are all banded with REHAU LaserEdge for a seamless, modern look. This allows cabinet makers large and small to offer the high quality and durability of REHAU surface materials without the need for costly upgrades and investment in specialized machinery. According to the company, use of REHAU LaserEdge banding allows for perfect color matching and will ensure that the quality of the cabinets will not decrease over time.

“REHAU offers a complete modern cabinet door solution, with control over the entire process to ensure high-quality at every stage,” said Dr. Thomas Troeger, vice president of REHAU’s furniture solutions division. “We produce seamless doors and ship within a week in quantities as small as one door, making modern accessible to any woodworking shop and extremely easy for designers to spec for any size project.”

In addition to finished doors, most of the modern surfaces are also available as pressed boards and matching REHAU LaserEdge for customers who are equipped to finish their own boards.

TheSize to Launch New Additions to Neolith Collections at KBIS 2017

Posted on 04 November 2016 by CRadmin3

Taj Mahal

Castellón, Spain manufacturer of sintered compact surface brand Neolith, TheSize, plans to expand its range of premium surfaces with new product launches at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), in Orlando, Fla.

Among the new surfaces being introduced are:

Taj Mahal (Classtone Collection), is representative of the multidimensional Indian Quatzite. With light cream as its backdrop and a combination of clear flakes to emulate the natural crystallization of multiple pink quartz layers, it embodies natural quartzite; to enhance the design further, the fine integration of subtle brown and grey veins add just enough diversity, while still keeping it in the neutral color family. Slabs are in a polished finish and 12mm thickness.

Blanco Carrara (Classtone Collection), has been designed after studying dozens of natural Carrara marbles found in Italy. Two versions will be on offer; one a more subtle portrayal of the veining and the other, a prominent, high-contrast version. Blanco Carrara is available in two thicknesses, 6mm and 12mm, and in two finishes, polished and antique.

Nero Marquina (Classtone Collection), is inspired by marble from Spain and features bright white veining on a pure black backdrop through an exclusive technique to achieve the stark contrast and distinct fine lines. Available in Polished and Silk finishes and in 6mm and 12mm thicknesses.

Zaha Stone (Fusion Collection) offers a contemporary twist on Iranian Gray Stone, incorporating a richer, industrial grey tone, with white veins etched onto the backdrop in contradicting directions. It also pays tribute to the late Zaha Hadid, a true inspiration to the architectural community. Available in 6mm and 12mm and in Antique finish, the Persian inspired stone is the statement piece of these new introductions.

Concrete Taupe (Fusion Collection) differentiates itself from its predecessor Beton with an all over brown wash of color and warmer tone. The décor suggests that a natural rusting has occurred but with the addition of micro flakes to add the slightest sparkle. It is available in 6mm.

Aspen Grey (Fusion Collection) offers a dark grey matte inspired by natural Aspen stone. With countless micro elements scattered throughout, the slab suggests movement with a sense of ornateness and character. Aligned with the same Neolith Digital Design (NDD) technology used to develop its Pierre Bleue décor, Aspen Grey’s color is present through the entirety of the slab. Available in 6mm and 12mm in soft-touch silk.

Wood’s Powr-Grip Offers Inteli-Grip Vacuum Lifters

Posted on 19 October 2016 by CRadmin3

inteli-gripHandling large sheets of glass, stone, metal and other materials can be challenging and inherently risky. As a result, work is continually being done to improve products by making them safer, more efficient and more responsive to the customers’ needs.

In anticipation of those needs, Wood’s Powr-Grip developed the next generation of vacuum lifters featuring the company’s proprietary Intelli-Grip™ technology. This state-of-the-art design reportedly monitors the lifter’s vacuum and power systems, adjusts resources as necessary, and notifies the operator when something requires special attention. It tells the operator what they need to know, when they need to know it, allowing them to focus on the material handling job and not the nuances of lifter operation.

Vacuum lifters with Intelli-Grip™ communicate critical information at a glance via a color LCD display screen. A flashing amber strobe light and audible alarm warn about conditions that may compromise safety. These vacuum lifters also host a variety of safety features that help prevent anyone from performing dangerous actions. On every lift Intelli-Grip™ tests for a good vacuum seal and checks for low power. If the battery is dangerously low, it also prevents the lifter from attaching to loads. Every time the vacuum lifter is powered up, Intelli-Grip™ automatically performs self-diagnostics, to make certain the lifter is ready-to-go. Unique service codes quickly identify potential problems, minimizing lifter down-time. Smart power management enables the lifter to work longer on a single charge.

Antolini Introduces Bronze Amani

Posted on 18 October 2016 by CRadmin3

antolini-bronze-amaniAntolini’s Exclusive Collection is a unique offering of natural stone surface materials designed to complement today’s modern residential architecture. Among these stone designs is the newest addition, Bronze Amani, a variation that originates from a quarry in Spain and contains an assortment of rich earth tones. The color palette of Bronze Amani is cohesive with classic, bold patterns and textures. Antolini states that the material can also enhance the characteristics of contemporary, minimalistic interiors. Bronze Amani makes surroundings welcoming and relaxing.

Available in Polished, Lether and Antique finishes, Bronze Amani displays a color palette of classic yet bold patterns and textures, and works well as a complement to contemporary minimalistic interiors. In rooms where Bronze Amani is applied as the primary material or as an accent —in either horizontal or vertical applications—the impact can be remarkable, as the material has a variety of distinctive traits.

According to Antolini, the material can be a highly effective design treatment. “Bronze Amani’s warm, embracing earth tones and golden hues embody romance, elegance, and tranquility,” says Antolini, “while at the same time, it is remarkably dynamic and has the ability to reflect light and enlarge any surrounding where it is applied. It can make surroundings welcoming and relaxing, turning them into a unique oasis of peace and relaxation.”
