Reduce furniture assembly time by 50%

With the right fittings, you reduce the amount of time that goes into every assembly. We use a calculation called CAF to determine how easy a fitting or piece of furniture is to assemble.

Consumer Assembly Friendliness (CAF)

You add the total number of parts (T) to the number of actions it takes to assemble (A) and times the result by the number of types of parts (N). The equation looks like this: (T + A) N = CAF. The lower the CAF score, the less time it takes for someone to assemble.

Easy to assemble fittings:

Fewer component parts

Fewer different types of parts

Fewer steps to assemble

Our picks for reducing assembly time:

When you think of furniture assembly, you might think about putting together the main structure. But furniture assembly begins with the component parts and fittings. Fittings that are designed for ease and arrive pre-assembled reduce the overall assembly time.

T-type concealed hinge

Tool-free, 3-Way snap-on mounting makes this concealed hinge take seconds to fit. It’s suitable for tall, heavy doors, even if they are accidentally misaligned. Adjustable dampers ensure the doors close with precision and consistency, for the lifetime of the furniture. The hinge can arrive ready to mount – preassembled in 1 or 2 parts rather than 6.
