Ralf Köhler, success with Keku® . dds, the magazine for furniture and interior design, 02.02.1997

“The Keku® R room system extends the practical application of the Keku® fitting technology family, consisting of ASR slide-on fittings and suspension and double partition fittings, by adding a stable substructure of aluminium profiles for cladding walls and ceilings as well as for freestanding single and double partition walls. (…) Sheets and panels made of different materials can be easily clipped on at any time. (…) Individual and versatile solutions are designed based on simple standard system elements. (…)

The inventor of Keku® , Karl-Ernst Kusanke, a master carpenter from Lüdenscheid and owner of the interior design company of the same name, planned and constructed trade fair stands, e.g. for VW, Opel and Audi, with the well-known slide-on and suspension fittings. They were initially designed in conventional forms with wooden substructures. He also contemplated how to make working with Keku® even more efficient at the same time. He developed profiles for the substructure and added a wide range of accessories to it to create the Keku® R room system, which can be used universally today.”

“The office partition walls consist of melamine resin-coated wood-based panels which are clipped onto a Keku® aluminium support structure. For example, shelves can be suspended in the joints of the wall cladding panels in the corresponding grid of the upright profiles, which can be variably adjusted”.

“The Keku® fitting is also available as a slide-on fitting and is ideal for panels.”

“The ceiling sections framed by light coves are secured with Keku® fittings. They are very easy to remove. This makes it possible to use the illuminated bulkheads in walls and ceilings to inspect fire detectors”.

“According to the jury’s verdict, the student has created multifunctional storage furniture in a small space with storage compartments on the left and right, supporting parts that can be used flexibly, USB connections, concealed lighting with switch and hidden cable management. Keku® fittings from the Häfele product range make the furniture easy to assemble and disassemble in no time at all.”

Johannes Bee, fittings for high demands. BM, interior fittings / furniture / construction elements, 05.11.2019

“Keku® polycarbonate fittings have been used for several decades in interior design and furniture construction for the concealed attachment of panels and wall coverings. The manufacturer, Kusanke Beschlagtechnik from Lüdenscheid, is now expanding its product range to include the EH-M metal fitting.”
