1. WHAT IS THE CORE PRODUCT PHILOSOPHY?
The Indian interior industry, especially the modular kitchen industry is 85% unorganised and 15% organised, hence is highly dominated by carpenters and small scale semi machine manufacturing units with no quality control process in place. In the small segment of 15% organised suppliers, you would predominantly find two kinds of suppliers – European Kitchen Traders & Indian manufacturers, including the online aggregators. European kitchens are highly quality conscious but come with a much higher price tag due to brand, custom taxes and logistical compulsions, whereas local manufacturers focus primarily on the price factor.
So, Würfel was introduced to fill this void – Best of Europe handpicked with a very aggressive pricing strategy. Each and every raw material and hardware from a finished board to a screw is imported only from the best vendors across Europe and assembled in India, by using German technology under the able supervision of a European production head, ensuring great European products at great pricing.
2. WHY YOU SHOULD OWN A WÜRFEL PRODUCT?
Our endeavour starts with quality and will continue with quality. However, besides providing top of the line timeless European products, there is something we believe from our core – “We stand by You”.
We are bold to take ownership of any problems, be next to you and ensure that you have a great product as you always wished.

This warranty is applicable for all wood/board parts. All fittings come with a lifetime warranty. However, in the case of projects & corporate editions, the warranty is 6+4 years, not because there is a change in product quality but because the price is very aggressive. The warranty can be extended individually by paying the additional amount before the installation.
12. PAYMENT TERMS
10% token advance after the first presentation. 40% advance after design finalisation to start production. 50% before delivery.
13. HOW DO ADVANCE PAYMENTS WORK?
Any advance payment paid is willingly paid to take the design further towards completion. Advance payment is done twice in the buying cycle.
1. Post the first presentation you would be in a state where you have seen our products, checked their quality and also the design presented with costs. Hence we have a policy of 10% advance to take the design further to the detailing stage. Post this payment you can do any number of design iterations till you are completely satisfied with the design. The amount paid is not a design fee and will be adjusted as a part of the billing.
2. 40% making it 50% of the project cost, including the first 10% before sending to production. Once a product is sent to production then there cannot be any cancellation or changes to that particular product and the client is liable to pay the 100% payment as per schedule.
Any form of advance is non-refundable.
14. WHY SHOULD ONE PAY 100% PAYMENT BEFORE DELIVERY?

A modular kitchen sale is the starting of our relationship at least for the next 10 years and we always vow to stand by you.

16. DOES WÜRFEL DEAL WITH MARINE PLY?
Yes, catering to the Indian market, Würfel also provides the option of 36 hour boiling water-proof calibrated plywood, imported from Indonesia. This is the only raw material in our catalogue that is imported from a non-European country as manufacturing of ply is banned in Europe for environmental reasons.
17. WHAT OTHER BOARDS DOES WÜRFEL USE?
Würfel extensively uses high-density water-resistant particle boards and MDF boards. Our vendors are spread across Europe and are the best board making companies across the globe.
18. DOES MARINE PLY WORK BETTER THAN PARTICLE BOARDS?
This is a very strong myth prevailing in our country. However, this myth is strongly supported by the poor quality of particleboards produced in India. Plywood production is banned in Europe for environmental balance for many years and hence the whole board making technology has always evolved in the manufacturing of high-density particle boards. Over years Europe has pioneered the technology in board manufacturing and created the most trusted and long-lasting boards globally. We all know that European Kitchens are the best and the most durable across the globe and all European brands use only high-density particle boards.
Whereas in India the technology of board making has always evolved in plywood. The application of Indian made particleboards are packing, pallet making, with a common intention of one-time use. Hence the technology of particleboard has never evolved in India. If the question is - Is plywood better than Indian made particleboard, then the answer would be YES. But if the question is – Is plywood better than top European made high-density particleboard, then the answer would be NO. The top-end high-density particleboards are made under a highly quality controlled environment and hence producing top-of-the-line long-lasting boards.
19. WHY WÜRFEL WARDROBES?
We don’t make wardrobes, we design wardrobes. What do we mean by this sentence? Würfel designs completely customisable wardrobes, customisable not just in size but to the need of your lifestyle. A good wardrobe is about how the wardrobe is designed, how we have understood the personal requirement and lifestyle of the individual who would be using the wardrobe and ensure that in the available space we help to design a wardrobe which makes life easy and organised.
Besides this, our wardrobes are screw-free and all joints are made out of metal support, increasing the life and durability of the product. It’s highly modular and hence can be installed, uninstalled and moved with a lot of ease.
High-end, fabric-friendly interior to ensure the long life of the clothes. Easy to function and great service support
20. WHAT IS WÜRFEL HARDWARE PORTFOLIO?
Würfel has more than 40 hardware partners from different parts of Europe with research intended to handpick the best of the best to make a Würfel product. So the name Würfel is the brand which means it is made with the best in the trade.
21. WHO MANUFACTURES WÜRFEL PRODUCTS?
Würfel world starts with quality and hence the Würfel story started with a top of the line European technology, self-owned and self-operated manufacturing facility. This is the core strength of Würfel and we dictate our quality process and control.
22. IS WÜRFEL ISO CERTIFIED?
Würfel is ISO:9001 and ISO:1401 certified.
23. HOW ARE THE GRAIN PATTERNS ON THE SHUTTERS IN CASE OF LAMINATE AND VENEER?
Würfel always works on vertical grain patterns. A horizontal grain pattern is a special case and needs to be requested. So, Würfel does not do horizontal grain matching of shutters in any of the cases. All grain matching is vertical grain matching.
24. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A WÜRFEL PRODUCT?
From 2nd-3rd day, post making 50% payment and signing the dossier, the production timeline based on the various finishes are as follows:
Plain Laminate, Synchronized Laminate, Gloss Polylacquer and Matte Polylacquer: 30 days.
Glass, Veneer, Stone, High Gloss Lacquer, Matte Lacquer: 45 days.

Post the dispatch you have to add the number of transportation days from Bangalore to your location. That is, your delivery date!
25. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A WÜRFEL PRODUCT?

26. WHAT TYPE OF FINISHES ARE AVAILABLE AT WÜRFEL?
Würfel offers one of the widest range finishes industry-wide. Plain Laminate. Synchronised Laminate. Matte Polylacquer. Gloss Polylacquer. Matt Lacquer. Gloss Lacquer. Veneer – Clear and Tinted Glass with Aluminium profile. Lacquered Gloss and Matte Glass on laminate shutter. Stone Finish. To name a few.
27. CAN I GET ANY COLOR KITCHEN I WANT?
Besides the regular colour catalogue of High Gloss and Matt Lacquer, you can opt for any colour from the RAL shade cards. So we can deliver “Your Kitchen, Your Colour”. However, for any special colour outside the catalogue colours, a small amount of 5% on the overall kitchen is charged extra.
28. DOES THE GLOBALLY POPULAR HARDWARE DISTRIBUTORS/ MANUFACTURER MAKE KITCHENS?
The global giants for Modular Kitchen hardware manufacturers/distributors have such a big market share in hardware that they never thought about or would think about getting into modular kitchen manufacturing. They are focused on selling their hardware portfolio. However, some of their dealers collaborate with local carpenters or semi-organised players to sell the kitchen in totality so that the hardware is also sold along with the panels.
29. WHAT IS WÜRFEL EDGE BAND TECHNOLOGY?
Ask one question to any veteran from the furniture and modular kitchen industry – Which is the most important operation on panels. We assure you that the common answer would be “Edge Banding”. Würfel takes pride in officially stating that we use PUR technology for all our edge bands, making it the strongest edge band.
We at Würfel understand the importance of Edge Band for the longevity of the products and hence this is considered with utmost care.
30. HOW IS WÜRFEL ECO-FRIENDLY?
Würfel is a responsible brand and one of the topmost priorities is to maintain ecosystem balance. The wood industry contributes to the loss of trees for making its products. E.g. One kitchen made from plywood is a result of 5-6 trees being cut. As a brand, this is a matter of deep sadness for us and hence all our boards are eco-friendly and certified by FSC Europe. Our partners for board making cultivate their own forests and ensure that each and every board is made from cultivated forests. So be the proud owner of any of our products and feel the pride that you have contributed to maintaining the eco-system balance.
Also as one of our CSR activities, we plant one tree for every kitchen we produce.
31. HOW DOES WÜRFEL PROVIDE HEALTY LIVING?
Würfel by default uses E1 Grade boards and does E0 boards on request. It is very important for every client to understand the grades of boards. Würfel ensures that you have a healthy home and live safe.
The three commonly used grades of boards are.
E0 is the amount of formaldehyde released less than or equal to 0.5mg/100g.
E1 is the amount of formaldehyde released less than or equal to 9.0mg/100g.
E2 is the amount of formaldehyde released less than or equal to 30.0mg/100g.
Formaldehyde is a colourless, harmful gas that can cause cancer in the nose, mouth, throat, skin and digestive tract. And the formaldehyde in the home basically comes from all sorts of board, furniture and paint from adornment material.
According to the national mandatory standard, after closing the door window for 1 hour, in every cubic metre of indoor air, formaldehyde release quantity must not exceed 0.08 milligram; If it reaches 0.1-2.0 mg, 50% of normal people can smell a bad odour. Reach 2.0-5.0mg, eyes, the trachea will be strongly stimulated, sneezing, cough and other symptoms; More than 10 mg, dyspnoea; Reaching more than 50 milligrams can cause serious diseases such as pneumonia and even death.
If the decoration of the user is reasonable, environmental protection, and under the condition of constant ventilation and ventilation, indoor formaldehyde can be generally reduced to the permitted level in about 20 days.
32. Lacquer Colour Variation
Lacquer is a complete manual process where we do 12 layers of processing, paint and lacquer being the top layers. Hence, there might be 10-15% colour variation across different batches of production. Also, any new coloured panel will not exactly match with an old coloured panel. However, over time, both the panels will move close to each others colour.
