Wood-product furniture foil
Gloss and glass – Two trends for which there is currently strong demand in the furniture industry. In line with this, REHAU presented two polymer surfaces at interzum 2013, which combine the popular look with flexible processing properties: RAUVISIO crystal and RAUVISIO brilliant. With both surfaces, furniture manufacturers, joiners, interior designers and architects can create fronts in a glass/ high-gloss look with no compromises in processing or disadvantages due to materials. For the all-round perfect design, REHAU offers the accordingly colour-coordinated edgeband for a seamless look.
Whether in the kitchen, in the bathroom or in the living room: glass has a broad range of applications in furniture design today. REHAU developed RAUVISIO crystal for this demand. The lightfast and UV-resistant glass laminate for vertical furniture fronts has already won two awards: RAUVISIO crystal and the matching edgeband in glass design, RAUKANTEX visions Duo-Design laser, were awarded the "red dot design award – honourable mention 2013" and the "interzum award 2013" for high product quality.
With RAUVISIO crystal, REHAU customers can achieve the special appearance of glass without having to put up with the associated disadvantages such as susceptibility to fracture, high production costs for individual sizes, or predefined drill holes for handles. In addition, glass furniture pieces require a lot of cleaning as dirt collects in the joint area between the glass plate and edgeband over time. With the polymer glass solution RAUVISIO crystal, REHAU offers maximum flexibility for fronts as well as frame solutions in a glass finish – and with low stock, as individual cuts and flexible drill holes are possible.
As an edgeband specialist, REHAU‘s laser-compatible RAUKANTEX visions Duo-Design edgeband offers glass design in perfection. The glass off the roll is perfectly matched to the system component surface, wooden substrate and balancing foil.
