In RTA furniture industry, consumer satisfaction begins with fittings, and can quickly end with them, too. Studying how our products serve their end consumers – furniture manufacturers and individuals or installers assembling RTA furniture at home – is at the core of our R&D. We have a deep understanding of what can go wrong, and more importantly: how to overcome it. We found a way to easily evaluate how a fitting optimises furniture assembly with the Consumer Assembly Friendliness (CAF) score. 

Simple Math

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.

CAF in Action

Titus Quickloc is the most user friendly fitting on the market. As such, it is a great example of a fitting with an excellent CAF score. Watch the video to see the significant difference a consumer friendly fitting can make in furniture assembly.
