Rehau has launched its popular online configurator platform for edged cut-to-size cabinetry components in South Africa. The configurator goes live from 01 September 2019.

The configurator is aimed at the kitchen, furniture and shopfitting manufacturers. The configurator allows the user to select a specific Rehau acrylic surface and enter the sizes of doors or panels or drawer fronts required. The user will then receive a quote.

A choice of Rehau’s two acrylic surfaces is available:

  • Rauvisio Brilliant boasts a selection of 11 different colours, all in high-gloss or matt options.
  • Rauvisio Crystal is a glass-like design surface, offering 9 colours and can be selected in high gloss or matt options.

New colours will be added to the range as they become available.

Mark Stoltz, sales director for furniture and window solutions at Rehau, says that Rehau is traditionally known to supply mainly edgeband and tambour (roller shutter) doors to customers. However, Rehau has extended its product range to include designer surfaces for the use in cabinetry, which has become an integral part of its product offering internationally. “We have now made these exciting surfaces available to our customers in southern Africa. We are certain that both the Brilliant and Crystal surfaces will appeal to local manufacturers and homeowners alike. Glossy and matt surfaces are very much a current trend, be it in an acrylic or glass-like look.”

All the Rauvisio surfaces consist of an acrylic top layer paired with perfectly colour matched balancing sheets and edgeband to produce a high-quality finished panel. They are suitable for all vertical applications for use in kitchens and other living areas. Furthermore, they are UV resistant and provide lasting quality backed by a five-year warranty.

Rehau’s existing range of glass roller shutter doors will shortly be expanded to include roller shutter doors matching the Rauvisio colours. “Rehau has a world-wide presence in over 170 locations in 50 countries with around 21 000 employees. We have been in South Africa since 1967. The local furniture division at Rehau is backed by substantial investment in South Africa to supply products to leading international brands,” says Stoltz.
