Important notes

Personal details and sufficient time are extremely important during the consultation. The following must be taken into account: Personal weight, sleeping habits, e.g. side sleepers, room climate, quality requirements.

Bed headboards are often design-orientated and therefore only have a limited load-bearing capacity. It should be clarified at the time of purchase whether the bed headboard is to be used as a backrest or is suitable for this purpose.

All electrical installations comply with the applicable standards (VDE/CE/MM etc.). The bulb strengths to be used are indicated on the lamp holders. To avoid the risk of fire, please observe the following instructions:

  • Observe the maximum wattage
  • Do not cover the light source and ensure that the light source is not in contact with furniture parts.
  • Ensure that there is no heat build-up

Glass produced using the float process complies with EU standards and DIN 1249.

With polarised light, "iridescence phenomena" such as slight clouds, rings, streaks or drawing errors in the spectral colours are physically caused and unavoidable. Small scratches, bubbles, glass clouding and slight irregularities around the edges and the like may be present in the glass, are unavoidable and therefore do not constitute defects. Glass surfaces are sensitive to scratches, sharp-edged objects must not be placed or pulled without protection.

Care is carried out using commercially available glass cleaners. Single-pane safety glass (ESG) is characterised in particular by increased impact resistance. This impact resistance is achieved through a special treatment called "toughening". Like all glass, it is not scratch-resistant.

In the event of glass breakage, safety glass produces very small glass particles that are not sharp-edged (as with car windscreens). The impact resistance in the edge area of safety glass is limited. Due to the high temperatures during tempering, small irregularities, inclusions and burns can occur. The load-bearing capacity of glass, glass shelves etc. is limited, please observe the load limits.

The inherent colour of each glass depends on the thickness of the pane, the manufacturing process and the composition of the glass batch and therefore varies from glassworks to glassworks. Coloured or coated glass can also exhibit colour tolerances. Glass coatings lead to colour changes in the surroundings (e.g. curtains, etc.). Such colour deviations or colour differences in coloured or colour-coated glass do not constitute a defect. Batch-dependent colour deviations are therefore possible.

Beauty, elegance, value and much more is associated with "high gloss". When handled correctly, high-gloss fronts are much less sensitive than assumed. However, depending on the material and finish, the typical product characteristics include a barely visible orange peel effect, slightly different shades of colour on surfaces and edges depending on the light source and incidence of light (backlighting). In addition, there is a certain surface patina with use, similar to a car.

Lightfastness is the resistance of a material to the effects of light (especially sunshine, daylight, halogen lighting, etc.) Such light sources and especially sunlight change surfaces, especially wooden surfaces, natural materials (e.g. cotton) or leather. This type of "sunburn" leads to colour changes due to the chemical structure. Natural woods can darken or yellow, stained woods can fade. Furniture must be protected from extreme exposure to light, as "absolute" lightfastness cannot be achieved. The elemental force of the sun changes all materials! Particular care should therefore be taken in bright south-facing rooms with lots of glass, where curtains or blinds should be closed in direct sunlight, as otherwise a surface can become lighter or darker in the exposed areas after a relatively short time. However, such "colour changes" have no effect on use or service life.

The buyer is responsible for the protection of his floor or floor coverings. Industrial series production provides for its own model-specific standard. In order to protect the different floor coverings from scratches or damage, separate protective underlays, e.g. felt, plastic, rubber or other glides, may need to be fitted under our foot variants.

To avoid scratching the furniture or furniture parts, please place them on a suitable soft surface during assembly!

Please only use the enclosed fittings or individual parts. Please assemble according to the assembly steps provided in the assembly instructions. Failure to do so may invalidate your warranty or guarantee claims!

The proper functioning of your furniture is only guaranteed if it is installed plumb and level. If necessary, you must align the standing surfaces so that the furniture then stands securely and without wobbling!

Cabinets, etc. should be fixed to the wall for safety reasons.

All drawers and pull-outs must be secured against falling out using the fittings supplied.

The doors pre-adjusted at the factory may have to be re-aligned or adjusted due to local conditions. Do not open doors further than 90°. This does not apply to special 180° hinges.

Do not tilt the shelves (W compartments) when inserting or removing them, as this can damage other furniture parts. Sharp-edged or pointed objects and hard contact can also lead to damage or glass breakage.

When new furniture smells unpleasant, most people get a bad feeling. How are you supposed to know whether the odour is unhealthy or harmless? New furniture usually has an inherent odour. In the first few weeks after installation, the odour will disappear with regular ventilation (about 10 minutes of airing three times a day). When buying furniture, you can use reliable test seals such as the "RAL quality mark for furniture" as a guide. With furniture labelled in this way, you can be sure, for example, that the formaldehyde limit value, which is classified as harmless by the legislator, is far below.

Castors are suitable/designed for carpets as standard. For laminate, cork and parquet floors, we recommend the use of hard floor castors and an additional floor protection mat! In the event of non-compliance, we cannot accept any liability for any damage that may occur.

We reserve the right to make technical changes/model deviations.

When planning furniture and fittings, the "load-bearing capacity" of the wall material is of the utmost importance for safety. It is therefore essential that the seller and installer know which wall materials are available in a home at the planning stage or before installation. In case of doubt, a test drilling must be carried out in consultation with the homeowner, landlord, manager, etc. or by the installers.

Only use the fittings, tools and materials specified by the manufacturer. If this is not observed, the guarantee is usually invalidated. If in doubt, ask the experts.
