Assembly

General

image13

Each tile includes a series of dado grooves and channels for interlocking and grips in the front & backs for assembly and additional accessories (such as wall fasteners)

Sequences

image14

KITS include an assortment of 12x12 inch Squares and 24x12 inch Rectangles in three designs: A, B & C.  The above is just one example of a sequences that can be used to create a single box.  Another example is: C-C-C-C or A-B-A-B.  Different sequences interlock better with multiple boxes. Experiment!

Single Box Assembly

image15

Tiles interlock at right angles to create boxes.  They should slide together with minimal force and feel firm.  You can set the tiles so the front/back sides are perpendicular to the ground and let gravity help.

Multi-Box Unit Assembly

image16

Boxes can interlocking easily with other boxes depending on the sequence you used.  The interlocking boxes can also be mixed with free-standing tiles to create any variation of shelving unit you can imagine.

Returns / Care / Recycle

Returns & exchanges

  • 30 days from delivery: product purchase price refund of unused tiles.
  • 90 days from delivery: one time replacement of individual damaged tiles.

Care instructions

  • Clean with a soft damp cloth.
  • Weight yields are similar to standard shelving (20-40lbs) and dependent on the number of interlocking joints (the more the better).  We do not recommend loads heavier than 50lbs for a single tile.
  • Some minor splintering may occur during first or regular use.  Remove splinters and sand down splintered sections.  Keep tiles that have splinters away from children.
  • Assemblies that are tall, heavy or intended for nurseries should be fastened to the wall using a furniture anchor strap (not included).  Availabe to purchase on Amazon, they can be looped through the grip slots.
  • Gently sand down dados (grooves & channels) if fit is too tight.
  • Add a small amount of wood glue  or wax to dados (grooves & channels) if fit is too loose.

Recycle & Reuse

  • IMSU’s were designed to be highly SUSTAINABLE and can be RECYCLED more easily since they are made of a single plane of material (80% of furniture & furnishing ends up in landfills due to mix of wood, plastics & metals).
  • Wood IMSU's with finish can be recycled by removing the varnish using a stripping agent. Then, call a wood-recycling facility or your local waste-management company and ask how to recycle clean wood scraps.
  • Plastic HDPE can be recycled via your local curbside recycling and has many sustainability benefits: for example, it is more cost efficient to produce a product from recycled HDPE than it is to manufacture 'virgin' plastic.
  • IMSU’s in good condition can be TRADED or DONATED (See Community Board below).  Don’t just throw them away!
  • IMSU’s can be REFURBISHED by painting or staining once the finish has been removed.  Be sure to sand down any excess material you add that can impede the smooth interlocking feature.  Non-finished IMSU’s available by request.

Resources & Accessories

  • Furniture straps such as these can be found on Amazon or your local hardware store and threaded through the finger grip slots for high builds, heavy builds, nurseries & children's rooms.
  • Wax wood crayons such as these can be found on Amazon or your local hardware store to help fix worn wood dados, patch up nicks & scratches, as well as help create a tighter fit.
  • Basic 80 grit sand paper such as these can found on Amazon or your local hardware store to smooth out splinters and help create a looser fit.
  • Varnish stripping gels such as these can be found on Amazon or your local hardware store to remove finishing for painting or recycling.  Non-finished IMSUs are an option.
