Aluminum is far too valuable a raw material to be wasted as a disposable item. It deserves to be made-to-stay! It can also be recycled in the sense of cradle-to-cradle design.
Latitude is not just a simple shelf, but a shelf with a practical hook. The triple hook can be turned and pushed back and forth along its entire length. This way, even your hanging goods will find their place. Only two screws are needed to fix it to the wall. (Included in delivery).
Interesting facts about Latitude shelves:
The surface has narrow grooves: This means that postcards or theatre tickets won't slip but stay in position so you can look at them.
The strength and stability: The shelf and the hooks can withstand weight. We have tested up to 30kg. But be careful, will your wall hold the hook and the dowel?
We include on triple hook: Even if you need more hooks later, you can reorder them from us or order one or more hooks now with your order.
Screws, dowels, and "readable" assembly instructions are included. It is simple. You may need a spirit level - this is available as an app for your mobile phone.
Did you know that only about 5% of the energy used in primary production is needed to recycle aluminum? With today's techniques, aluminum can be remelted, recast and thus easily recycled without any loss of quality and with little energy input.
Latitude is made of 70-80% recycled aluminum. Here in Switzerland, we have found "the real experts of aluminum". At the plant, locally collected aluminum is sorted and melted down. Alu Menziken operates one of the most modern aluminum extrusion plants in Europe. The 80-metre-long aluminum beam is cut into lengths of 300 - 500 - 600 - 800 mm. The shelves are then given the finishing touches in the neighboring village at the company Ateco AG. Anodizing in black or natural aluminum color protects the aluminum and makes it even more durable.
Weight: 300mm - 1.1 kg / 500 mm - 1.8 kg / 600 mm - 2.2 kg / 800 mm - 2.9 kg.
Dimensions: available in lengths 300/500/600/800 mm, the depth and height is 14cm each. The hook protrudes approx. 5cm from the guide.
Material: At least 70% recycled aluminum. Local collection.
