Office Walls & Doors
In 2016 Feltrin+Masarin designed a project for an important American campus: the doors and partition walls made by Feltrin+Masarin are the result of a technological evolution followed by a strong technical ability able to satisfy the customer’s high-quality standards. For this project F+M proposed aesthetically and functionally efficient solutions: glass and aluminium doors and partition walls feature finishes in shot-blasting silver and an elegant removable handle.
Identify an efficient and sustainable production process in terms of costs and time, meet the high quality and precision standards required by the customer, use of structural double-sided adhesive for fixing the glasses, study and design a specific packaging to properly protect the goods.
Solution by F+M
Despite the complexity of the project, F + M managed to meet all the requests expressed by the customer thanks to a careful and faithful study. The purchase of a specialized 5-axis machining centre and the construction of custom-made machineries made possible to identify an efficient production cycle able to minimize costs and time and, at the same time, to carry out different processes in multiple dimensions.
The absolute novelty is the use of double-sided adhesive tape as an innovative glue. For this reason, F + M got 3M certification. Moreover, the total respect for the design concept was fundamental, in particular in the handle which had to be “clean” without any visible mechanical elements.
Finally, an accurate analysis was carried out for packaging: along the entire perimeter of the wall, a special waterproofing membrane to cover the product and hygroscopic salts to absorb the humidity inside that could have been created during the journey of shipment.
