Streamline Your Assembly

In RTA furniture industry, consumer satisfaction begins with fittings, and can quickly end with them, too. Studying how our products serve their end consumers – individuals or installers assembling RTA furniture at home, and furniture manufacturers – is at the core of our R&D. We have a deep understanding of what can go wrong, and more importantly: how to overcome that. We found a way to simply evaluate just how well certain fittings perform in furniture assembly and give them their Consumer Assembly Friendliness (CAF) score. Only those with excellent scores are CAF Certified.

What is the CAF Score?

We came up with an easy way to calculate the Consumer Assembly Friendliness (CAF) score of any furniture fittings. Simply add the total quantity of parts required to assemble a cabinet and the number of actions it takes to assemble it, and multiply it with the number of types of parts. 

The lower the result, the friendlier the home assembly of a cabinet will be.
