The Real Closet system is a modular plywood and solid wood wall-mounted
home organizing system.
The equipment used by Real Closet to
build the systems includes a Giben beam
saw, Biesse edgebander, Busellato CNC
routers, shapers, a Ritter sander, and
clamping and drilling stations engineered and constructed speci;cally for
Billman says he decided to have
the customized clamping and drilling
stations built as a result of the speci;c
needs of the all-wood, wall-mounted
“The typical closet is made out of
particleboard. Component parts are cut
on a computerized CNC to ;nished sizes ;rst and then edgebanded,” Billman
says. “Our product has wood mouldings
— a furniture-shaped edge — so the manufacturing process is much different.
“First the plywood is ripped on a
beam saw and then machined on the
front and back edges to receive two
1-1/2-inch solid maple edges that then
have a UV-;nish applied and clamped
through a special gluing process that
allows it to be clamped at 8 feet per
minute. Once the twin beam shelves are
at this point they are then cut to ;nished
sizes,” he explains.
Real Closet dealers use 2020 Design
or Pro Kitchen to design the patented
wall-mounted organizing system.
“Designers use kitchen software all
day,” Billman says. “This is why the
Real Closet towers can drag-and-drop
just like kitchen cabinets do to shorten
the learning curve. Instead of using the
closet versions that software companies
offer, we created a catalog designed for
the kitchen version of software with
kitchen designers in mind.”
Billman adds that they are looking to
add even more dealers to the compa-
ny’s network, such as kitchen and bath
studios, home interior designers, home
centers, and even lumberyards.
