Development of reinforced PMMA sheets for office furnitures and a new junction detail proposal
Nowadays life styles are changing and more modern than before, for that reason peoples furniture desires are different. In this modern world; furniture using gain a meaning and play important role than before, it defines peopele.s social status and their posion in this life. Design criteria are changing and improving everyday because of this designers use different equipments for their desingns. Glass production which is diffucult to take a shape hence plastic meterials were common after World War II. Modern views and their strength transperent materials satisfied designers desires. After gained environment conclousness same plastics which are non recyling products were gave up to use. Light and high strength plastic which is a recyling material PMMA is very common to use PMMA as known as a brand which name is plexiglass in Turkey. Also this plastic materials have very effective features than others.. İn this study, transparent sheets, glass and PMMA which are used furniture production were studied. As a designer approach different examples and combine details are given.Combine details which are used furniture production were researched and PMMA panel's strength,variety and flexibility were suggested as an beneficial metarial. After the performance, for the office furnitures, there had been a suggestion on a material that brings positive reaction for its endurance, variation and elasticity to the PMMA plate which is more frequently preferred compared with glass. In the suggested material, putting galvanized matting string between the two PMMA plates resulted in stronger and more elasticity characteristics,compared to the standart PMMA plate. After the compose of the material, it had been put through durability test.As a result the material's bending durability had been calculated, too.
