Here you can specify the height of every shelf-column. This is the total amount, including all subjects and wooden parts.Specify the width of the current section of the shelving unit here. This width is the internal width between the two outer sides to left and right.Specify how many compartments you would like in this section. You may opt for just a few compartments or for many in one section - the choice is yours!SocketOur shelves are available with or without sockets. The socket has a regular height of 7 cm. The socket height of 7 cm is not added to the total height but is included. On request, we can also adapt your socket to the height of your skirting board, please contact our consultants.
Enter the external dimensions of your shelving unit here. Please note that a clearance of 2-3 cm must be maintained between the top of the unit and the ceiling for fitting purposes and a safety clearance at the sides is also required. If you have selected a full-length base and ceiling plate, the unit must be assembled on its side. The maximum height of the unit can then be calculated here. The safety clearance at the sides should be 1-2 cm each side.
If you require a shelving unit with different depths, begin by planning the whole unit with a single depth. We will then calculate the price for you including the depth differences. Simply send us the saved configuration together with your requirements for the different depths.
For stepped shelving (i.e. a shelving unit with sections of different heights), specify the maximum height first. In the following step you can change the heights of the individual ‘steps’ or sections.
Multiple Wood Sections
Solid wood is available in lengths of 300 cm and MDF in lengths of 275 cm. Plywood is available in lengths of 250 cm. If the height or width of your shelving exceeds these dimensions, the boards (or the top and bottom plates or side panels) will have to be formed from two joined pieces. Please discuss this with us so that we can agree on the best position for the join.
Solid wood types and MDF
Coated MDF is a good alternative to solid wood. MDF is a composite wood material made of compressed softwood pieces. It is robust and yet low in cost. The surface coating is a melamine resin.
Painted MDF comprises a high-quality painted surface combined with the excellent properties of MDF board. We can supply the painted surface in up to 200 different RAL colours.
Oak is a very strong, robust timber. Its brownish-yellow colouring radiates a pleasant warmth.
Beech has a light-yellow to pinkish-brown colouring. Like most woods, beech turns dark after prolonged exposure to light. Beech is a strong and particularly elastic timber that is very well-suited to furniture making.
Pine is a light coniferous wood that is lightweight and very
soft. The colour of pine is white to reddish white.
Alder has a fine, uniform structure and is a good
timber to work with. It is medium in weight and has a slightly reddish colour.
Heartwood beech has a very attractive, vivid grain.
In heartwood beech, only the heart of the beech log is used.
Ash has a vivid grain and is highly diverse. It is a
heavy, strong timber and can thus be worked in more complex ways.
Fumed oak is oak treated to give an altered colour. In the
fuming process it is exposed to ammonia gas, which gives it a dark-brown colour. This makes it a
good alternative to walnut.
Cherry is reddish-brown in colour and has a uniform
structure, which makes it very popular.
Walnut is a precious wood, and this makes it more
expensive than other timbers. Thanks to its dark, attractive grain and its high durability, walnut
is highly favoured as a material for furniture.
Maple is a highly robust timber with a very uniform
structure. Although it grows darker over time, maple is one of the lightest types of wood.
Since wood is a natural product, both the grain and the colour may vary somewhat. You
are welcome to assure yourself of the quality of our wood by
ordering up to 4 samples here, free of charge.
When designing your shelving, be sure to
take the maximum width per section into account. If you exceed these dimensions,
the shelves may bend under load. Should you wish to keep to such dimensions, you should try
using a different material or changing the material thickness.
Solid wood is available in a thickness of 2 cm and 3 cm, and the maximum section width is 90 or 130
cm respectively; MDF is available in thicknesses of 2 cm and 3 cm, for which the respective maximum
section width is 60 or 80 cm.
fixed shelves, you can specify the compartment heights to the nearest centimetre.
To do this, simply change the
values given in each compartment. If, however, you opt for a hole strip (enabling
you to vary the shelf height) in the fourth step, the section heights you have
set will be invalid. In this case the shelves can be inserted at intervals of 32
Standard Dimensions for CDs,
DVDs or Paperback Books
Use the standard dimensions shown
to ensure that you choose the correct heights for your compartments. Be sure to
select the correct depth as well. The doors on our shelving units close into the unit, and an extra
2 cm depth should be allowed for these.
Our plinth has a height of 7 cm. If you require a different height, please contact us. Items without a plinth are fitted with a bottom plate.
Joints Between Sections
Our shelving units are assembled with Minifix connecting bolts. These are very strong and are particularly easy to use. If you opt for a hole strip (in step 4) to give your shelves flexibility, we will use metal plugs to support the shelf.
Configuring Doors over Multiple Compartments
Simply drag the mouse over the number of compartments you wish to include. You can then select the door type and opening, and even a different type of wood. Your selection will then apply to a door that will cover all the highlighted compartments.
Knobs and Handles
Drawer and door fronts are made with a material thickness of 2 cm. The fronts can be selected internally or externally located. With external fronts the specified depth is increased by 2cm. Some of the doors are made with stabilizing strips, so that the wood can not be forgiven. The fronts have always continuous stave.
back panels of our drawers are made
from HDF board and are 6 mm thick. Back panels are available in white, black or
wood-effect finish. Please note that the unit will lose some 6 mm in depth. We can also provide
thicker back panels or back panels with real-wood
With the room-divider option we provide
a plinth (if selected) on both sides. If you require a room divider with
back panel, please contact us. For safety reasons, room dividers should also be secured to
the wall on one side.
for a hole strip allows you to vary the shelf heights in increments of 32
mm. If you have specified fixed shelf heights in the preceding stages, however, choosing a
hole strip will cancel these. With taller shelving units,
one shelf should be fixed securely to ensure adequate
wall has skirting boards, you can enter the dimensions of these here. The
unit will be cut out to these dimensions, enabling it to be pressed flush to the
wall. If this cut-out is higher than 8 cm, the back panel and/or bottom shelf will be
reduced by the depth of the cut-out.
