Klise is Moving

April 2, 2018, we will be moving to a new facility at 11450 3rd Ave. NW; Standale, MI 49534.  Our team is working to plan this move with minimal disruption in our current production schedule. Our goal in the move is to update and improve our production processes and efficiencies to better meet customer requests. 

Unfortunately, this will mean letting go of some of our unique antique machinery. Some of our historical chisel carved patterns will no longer be available, but we will still offer many custom mouldings and continue to add new patterns to our line.

Please visit our website www.klisedesign.com  for updates on our move and catalog offerings.

Simple Cabinet Projects to Revamp your Kitchen

Renovating your kitchen doesn’t have to cost $19.1K, the national average according to a survey conducted by Houzz. Remodels are lengthy and expensive, and can be major stress factors. Instead, try some of these cabinet projects to revamp your kitchen and save that money for a vacation instead.

 

Paint

It sounds simple, but painting a room can make a big difference. Even better it can be done under $50. Painting Cabinets bright colors against neutral colors makes the kitchen pop. For a more bold move, you could paint both cabinets and wall in bright contrasting colors.

Moulding

Bamboo Moulding

If you have shaker cabinets, try adding a simple wood moulding to add some pattern to you kitchen. Choosing a simple pattern such as this bamboo moulding, or a more intricate pattern such as Klise’s K1312. Mouldings can be added to all cabinet types and Klise has many patterns to choose from to really get creative.

Wire Mesh Grilles

For a topnotch looking kitchen, remove the center paneling from your cabinets, and insert some wire mesh grilles. Not only do they look good, affordable stock Klise grilles are available in different finishes and even stainless steel.

Klise Participates in Fall Wood Components Manufacturers Association Fall Tour

Klise Manufacturing Co. was one of 7 wood working companies invited to host a plant tour for the Wood Components Manufacturers Association Fall Conference.  The conference consisted of 2 days of activities including plant tours, speakers, and wood technology Expo.

Klise was one of the first stop for the tour and greeted guest openly and warmly with breakfast snacks and refreshments. The allotted time for the tour called for a tight time window for Klise tour guides to provide 100 plus years worth of history, wood working experience, and manufacturing technology. Klise was proud to present its in house tooling and explain the processes involved in Klise wood mouldings. 

WCMA leaders were able to provide Klise tour guides with microphones and attendees with headphones so all was audible during the tour. Klise tour guides made an effort to introduce those who were unfamiliar with Klise Grilles to the actual weaving process.

Overall, participating in the WCMA Fall Conference was a fun and exciting learning experience for both Klise and for those who attended other plant tours. We hope to be invited to host more tours and continue to support the woodworking community. 

Fantastic Kitchen Remodel, a Must See

This Houzz article is a great read and a good source of inspiration for anyone looking for ideas for a kitchen remodel. By strategically removing items from this kitchen, Jennifer Tulley Architects were able to create a more spacious welcoming environment. 

Rosettes to Enrich Any Theme

Like many other fields, the world of interior design is ever changing. Incorporating subtle details creates a malleable design space for Designers, homeowners, and architects to make future changes without a full remodel. Placing small ornamental details creates a distinct impact that can be stained or painted to accentuate a new design style. 

 

Rosettes can placed in door and window corners, adorn tables, chairs, or cabinets. Rosettes, by nature, blend so fluidly with design themes that they can even be placed on walls, doors, ceilings, and small entryways.  Klise designed it's carved and plain rosettes with these ideas in mind, to produce a vast collection of designs that incorporate pyramids, florals, bull's eye, and  many more abstract designs. 

Rosettes can be located in the Carved Catalog at Klisedesign.com/catalog. After a rosette is chosen, Klise customer service representatives quote the rosette pattern based on quantity, wood species, and dimensions.  If a certain pattern needs to be altered to meet a clients wants and needs, klise's in-house engineering and tooling department are able to research the possibilities and work to produce the necessary tooling to create the wanted product. Klise can also create custom rosettes from customer provided samples and drawings. 

Contact a customer service representative by emailing klise@klisemfg.com or calling (616)459-4283.

Customize the Unique: Pattern Build-Ups

At Klise Manufacturing Co., a challenge to create a new custom moulding is always welcome, and build-ups are a Klise favorite. Fran Kent, Estimator and Customer Service Coordinator shows her enthusiasm, "I love getting build-up requests! The process is actually quite simple, especially when we have our engineers to create drawings or to interpret client provided drawings. Even when a build-up only incorporates two or three patterns, the finished product is always worth admiring." 

 Klise custom build-up. Includes: (order Top to Bottom) Custom Plain Crown moulding, a Dentil Moulding, the G-20 Bead Moulding, A new custom Plain Moulding, The D530 Egg and Dart Moulding, and the D2175 Dentil Moulding.

There are two options for creating build-ups through Klise. Patterns can be requested, quoted, and shipped separately to be assembled on-site or Klise can assemble the product in house and ship ready-made. The addition of 3MM tape or thin nails is provided as an option to prevent disassembly or to make the application of the wood finish an easier task. 

Requesting a build-up is simple. Customers are welcome to call to speak with a customer service representative and describe what patterns they would like to be included and the overall dimensions they would need in the application (i.e. Bamboo, Dentil, Bead, Fret, etc.). Customer Service Representatives are then able to refer a customer to the right pages in the Klise Catalog to view their options. After patterns have been chosen, customers can instruct Klise on preferances for pattern layout or assembly, a drawing is created for approval, and a quote is generated. Should a drawing contain a pattern with different aspects than those found in Klise's 6,000 pattern Inventory, Klise is able to create a new custom pattern to match.

Customers who already know what patterns they would like and how they would like them to be assembled, need only contact Klise and provide a drawing for the quoting process. Or, they can also provide a description of their vision for the assembly, which Klise engineers then use to produce their own drawing. "The options are only limited by one's own imagination," states Craig Hoyer, Sales Manager, "In the past few months, we've done a couple different build-ups that range from simple two pattern trims to elaborate 6 pattern crowns. Build-Ups really can reflect any desired design trend."

To learn more about build-ups or to request a quote for a build up, please contact (616) 459-4283 or email Klise@klisemfg.com

Woven & Formed

There are two forms of Mesh Grilles that are produced at Klise: Woven and Formed. 

Woven Wire Mesh Grilles, like all those in Klise's Stock-line of Wire Mesh Grilles, are hand woven by artisans on-site. There is plenty of opportunity for customization of design when working with hand-woven mesh; choice of color plating or a painted finish, unique mounting options, or the addition of a mesh screen backing.

Klise's Woven Wire Mesh grilles are "crimped" or bent prior to weaving. The Three crimping methods, Single Crimp, Double Crimp and Press Crimp, are applied to wire types including: round wire, flat wire, square wire and reeded wire.

Once crimped, the wire is then cut to correct lengths and hand-woven to the dimension specifications. The grilles are then sent to Klise's outside resources to receive a painted or plated finish. 

 

Klise Manufacturing Co. also produces formed wire mesh grilles. Wires are formed into particular shapes (ovals, hexagons, elongated diamonds, etc.). Once formed into the desired shape, the grilles are welded at the wire intersections. Rosettes, frames, tabs and brackets may also be incorporated into the designe. 

Formed grilles are not standardized. Therefore the design details must be provided to the metalworkers by the architect, designer, and/or client. Klise is always happy to offer suggestions and make recommendations.

After the formation of the wire and necessary welding is complete, formed grilles are plated or painted to the desired finish color.

Klise, a world-wide decorative wood and metal products supplier has announced a new paint finishing option for its line of Custom Grilles and Grille Components. Add a custom white grille to complete a modern renovation, a warm-toned grille to create a comforting feel, or a bold bright color to express creativity.  

Craig Hoyer, Klise’s Sales Manager, is enthusiastic for the limitless options of painted grilles designers now have to work with. “Paint has been gaining popularity in the design community, especially when designers incorporate white décor, the eclectic style, or a modern design. With our standard paint options and the ability to color match, designers will be able to have any pattern grille painted to match their overall design.”

Klise has partnered with an environmentally friendly outside resource, with color matching technology, to produce any color from a 2” x 2” sample. Color matching is a one-time process for specific colors. After a match is completed, it is recorded for future use. The Polane Finish that is used is hard enough to protect the grille from oxidation and accidental impacts, yet light enough to provide woven grilles with the flexibility necessary to discourage peeling and chipping during installation. The airbrush application used in the process would ensure an even application, and a complete coat for grilles with tighter weaves or formation or for those with a screen backing. 

Designers, project coordinators, and home-owners that are under pressure can request expedited finishing for painted products. “The substantial amount of close-to-dead line orders is what motivated Klise to search for a resource that offers expedited finishing options.”, continues Craig Hoyer, “Now, when our customer service representatives are made aware of a rush project, they can provide information on the requirements for a next-day and second-day paint finishing. This is going to relieve a lot of stress for those strict deadline projects.”
