Nature of the product / project:

To overcome the rail forming difficulty in the installation of stair lifts we needed a design for a rail track that could combine stiffness and easy flexible forming. After completion the first prototypes it came clear to us that this system can be applied in a lot of situation where one has the same contradiction. easy to form and strong after installation. Also it is easy to make extreme sharp bends and by assembling different colours you can create beautiful striping that can also have a helical look by torsionning the tube.
