Shelving system - Plug-in

Plug-in melamine shelves is a new addition to the Shelving system, to make the mounting of a Shelving solution even easier. Use the Wallbands as spacers to get correct distance between the Wallbands, and click the shelves onto the brackets by using plugs. With pre-defined dimensions (section widths) these shelves are most suited to be used in standard solutions such as side boards or bookshelves on open walls.

Built-in shelves transforms “impossible” walls into smart storage

Even in rooms where you have challenges like pipes and radiators it’s possible to create your own built-in bookshelf, with the Shelving system. With a little imagination and handy craft the wallbands can be placed on suitable distance from your obstacles and the shelves can be cut to fit perfectly around them.

Shelves below inclined ceilings or above staircase

There is often valuable space to be recovered in tricky spaces, like alongside the stairs and under an inclined ceiling. Using wall bands in different heights and shelves of different widths you can use the space to the maximum.

Match the shelving with the colour of the wall

Painting shelves and/or wall bands in the same colour as the wall creates a strong visual effect. You can also combine dark and bright colours for a pleasant contrast.
