I'M RUBBISH AT DIY, WILL I BE ABLE TO PUT TOGETHER A THOMOD SYSTEM?

Yes! If you can build a model out of LEGO then you can build your own thomod® system. That's the beauty of thomod®. You don't need to be a carpenter or DIY expert to create your own unique shelf design. You won't need any messy stuff like nails, hammers or glue, simply:

Step by step

LOCATE - Slot the shelf bits together where you want them, then snap in the 'Core' pieces to hold everything in place

ROTATE - Rotate the Core mechanisms to lock it all together

CREATE - Get those creative juices flowing and enjoy being your own furniture designer!





HOW DOES THIS CORE THINGY WORK? IT SOUNDS COMPLICATED.

Our innovative 'Core' system comprises a clever tightening mechansim that makes the build process both simple and quick. If you're a bit of a gadget-geek (like we are), then you can choose our transparent Core covers (see Building blocks) so that you can watch the mechanism working whilst you tighten it, and show it off when you've finished building. Or if you prefer, we also supply a series of opaque Core covers to match or complement your shelf system colour.

The Core is a gear-assisted mechanism that allows up to four shelving units to be tightened together. It doesn't matter how many thomod® shelves are inserted into a junction block- the same Core device is always used to pinch everything nicely together.

A standard screwdriver is all that is required to tighten the Core. The Core uses a planetary gearing technique, much like that found in electric drills, to help increase the tightening torque and effectively amplify the input effort. The patent-pending cam design of the Core means that as it is tightened, it pulls itself flush with the shelf surface. This means that at a glance, it is clear which Cores have already been fully tightened.

Once fully engaged, the Core holds itself in position; no glue or any other permanent fixing is needed. To add further shelves or to dismantle the system, simply unscrew the Core device. It will appear out of the shelf surface as it releases its grip on the shelving blocks. There is no limit to the number of times the Core devices can be used.





I REALLY LIKE THE WALL-MOUNTED DESIGNS. HOW DOES THE THOMOD SYSTEM ATTACH TO A WALL?

thomod® has been designed so that it can be wall mounted with the simple addition of wall-bars. Mounting plates must be fixed to the wall at each junction-block location (a hole guide, screws and wall plugs are included in each wall-kit pack), and the wall-bars can then be slotted through the standard thomod® junction blocks, and fixed onto the wall mounting plate. Once secured to the wall, the shelf elements can be slotted into the junction-block and then the Core is inserted and tightened in the usual manner to lock everything together.

The wall-bar system is designed to allow shelf-by-shelf construction along a wall with no measurement or pre-assembly required, so there is no limit to how large and long your thomod® creation can be, and you don't need a team of helpers to lift it onto the wall!
