The space of the hallway or corridor must be functional, therefore special furniture is used to furnish these premises, which meets the specific requirements of safety, ergonomics, quality and durability.
Hallway furniture production
Cabinet furniture is used to provide sufficient storage space in a limited space.
There are 3 main types of corpus hallway construction:
- straight (monolithic hallways for installation along a straight wall);
- corner (monolithic or modular hallways for installation in the corner);
- mini-hallways (hangers, hallways with a minimum set of furniture and storage facilities).
Each of these variations, in turn, can be performed in 3 variations:
- open (no cabinets);
- swing (with classic wardrobes);
- compartment (with wardrobes).
Traditionally, such furniture is made of chipboard (chipboard), MDF or solid wood. The finished raw materials are cut out, the parts go through the preparation and finishing stage, after which the product is assembled. This technique is the most common among Russian furniture factories and small workshops.
