Production

Danish handcraft, design and quality parts

Our production area expands more than 3000 m2 and covers unique production processes based on more than 30 years of experience. All our steel frames, the steering, the wheel brackets etc. are made in our blacksmith area. Our wheel production covers more than 250 m2 with the newest and most advanced wheel machinery. All our boxes are hand made in Denmark of strong birch plywood from FSC certified European forest.

Blacksmith

The frames are welded and/or brazed together using quality steel and aluminium tubing. The wheel brackets and the steering are precisely welded in our own welding machine and hereafter quality checked. All steel metal parts are then galvanized in Denmark in a black finish. Many of our models consists of unique solutions of steel, which we weld ourselves to ensure the best quality as possible.

Wheels

Our own designed hubs are placed in the hub filling machine on a conveyor belt. From here, each hub is filled with spokes automatically. Hereafter, the lacing process takes place. At this process, each hub, with the installed spokes, is placed in the middle of the rim and semi-automatically laced and tightened. The wheel is then processed through a truing machine to ensure each wheel is perfectly aligned.

Wood and Boxes

The wood comes from European FSC certified forests. The FSC certificate ensures that the forests are environmentally friendly managed. Among others, this includes that no more trees are cut than the forest can reproduce and that the forests’ ecosystem is preserved. The box is made of seven sheets of sustainable plywood and is water resistant. The seven layers are glued together by using the highest glue quality according to the standard for plywood. As such, the plywood is of the best quality and highly suitable for outdoor use – it can withstand exposure to weather conditions over a long period of time. The plywood is made of birch, which gives an extremely high strength. The plywood is processed by advanced CNC machinery in Denmark according to our drawings. Afterwards, the plywood is treated with weather resistant oil and finally hand built in Denmark into various boxes.
