Lamello improves on its successful glue aid Tenso P-14. Lamello's latest innovation facilitates an unprecedented flexibility, speed and simplicity in the whole process of designing, manufacturing, transportation and installing furniture. The Tenso P-14 wins the German Design Award 2014 in the category »working spaces« and the Interzum Award «Intelligent Material & Design» with the distinction "best of the best". Due to functional and visual improvements, the joining element now fits the require-ments for an even larger range of applications:
- Joining panels 12mm and larger
- Shelf dividers 19mm and larger
By inserting one part of the Tenso into a 10mm groove and the other Tenso part into a 18mm groove now Tenso can be used where thinner materials are used (min 12mm). The same technique of offsetting the fitting is used for shelf joints with 19mm thick vertical panels and shelves attaching to it from both sides. For this application the Tenso parts without spring are inserted into a 10mm groove on both sides of the vertical panel and the parts with spring inserted into 18mm grooves in the shelves.
Its exceptionally high clamping force makes the Tenso P-14 unique. This force is created during the assembly pro-cess and enables a tight connection between the two parts. Installing the new furniture fitting is exceptionally time efficient since it is based on the innovative P-System® profile groove. This new form-locking anchor-age between work piece and fitting does away with screws or glue completely. The fitting is slid into the groove within seconds without tools. P-System offers a very strong joint between the fitting and the work piece and allows for additional lateral adjustment between the work pieces.
The two-part, invisible fitting offers aesthetics without compromise in furniture production and the implementa-tion of completely new joining processes.
Machining the profile groove for the connector is possible either with modern CNC machines or manually
