Ensuring that your cabinet comes through the shipping process in perfect condition is part of our job and Salamander’s commitment to quality (and the joy of its customers).
Many of our goods are large and complex in shape and form and won’t simply “fit in a box”. What to do? Well, if you’re Salamander – you design your own custom cartons and design ways of packaging and securing your products. Which, in short, is exactly what we’ve done.
Making sure our goods get to you in perfect shape is no joke and it doesn’t happen by accident.
Making sure you get what you ordered and that it is delivered in perfect shape – is just one of the reasons why Salamander Designs is coming up on its 25th year in business.
All great art design starts with a vision/inspiration. Couple an artistic vision with an outstanding furniture design and you have a timeless classic.
Connie Kolman, an artist who uses a one-of -kind technique she created, was commissioned by AudioArt of Sudbury, MA to blend high-end audio and distinctive art. Inspired by nature and provocative colors, Connie applied her technique on glass panels which then were mounted on side panels and doors for a striking result. This particular pattern is called “Sahara Twilight”. We call it classic design married with artistic beauty: Signature Salamander
The New Low Profile Cabinet with its narrow depth, sleek design, storage capabilities and assortment of finishes delivers innovative residential solutions. As mentioned in our prior blog, Thinking Big at CEDIA 2016 (those who can anticipate the solutions and be ready with products will be the first reap the rewards of new opportunities.
Salamander looks toward AV furniture solutions and implements them according to your needs. We are cognizant of the trends of downsizing, residential city/urban space restrictions and historic building walls. We understand the importance of maintaining wall integrity and the realities of TV large screen weight concerns. As a response to these trends and concerns, Salamander Designs created the low profile cabinet.
The cabinet’s 12-inch depth, sleek design, storage and easy installation solutions, also caught the attention of CE Pro and Innovation & Technology Magazine editors, resulting in two awards at last month’s conference.
The problems that this cabinet addresses are summarized below:
Limited room space
The depth is 12 inches, providing more room space and a sleeker design.
Overheating of AV components
Heat sensor fans can be installed in the cabinet base providing intake up and out the top of the door panel, or up the screen mount as a chimney.
Flat panel screen requires wall mount with Questioning wall durability/adaptability (brick/historic plaster)or wall stability
Our integrated mounts for flat panel screens support the weight of the screen on the cabinet eliminating the need to penetrate wall integrity. Only 2 toggles bolts are required for panel tipping safety.
Insufficient space to install an audio receiver cable box or gaming station
Vertical 3-U rack allows equipment to be mounted and hung in any bay.
Design/door panels not coordinated with the over all room decor
The styles come in 6 different door panels.
Variable installations costs
Easy installation, eliminates the need to use, electricians, or other contractors.
