This is how we make your hörbert
Your hörbert – your unique piece made for you
Our nature is a master. The colours and grain of every tree are unique. Just like you.
To ensure that the natural wood surfaces remain visible, we only use clear varnish in accordance with DIN EN71, which is harmless to little foodies. Non-genuine plastic veneer or laminates are taboo for us. We use three different woods, each of which is best suited to its intended use. hörbert’s front panel made of poplar plywood forms a stable unit with the finger-jointed frame made of solid beech wood. The back of the player consists of a sliding lid made of torsion-free birch plywood. The handle of our radio player is made of solid beech wood. It is screwed on and not glued, so that it can be easily replaced in case of damage.
When the robust wooden housing blanks from our partner joineries arrive at our premises, it is an experience for our experts in the workshop to unpack and discover these unique pieces. Each case is closely examined before it is processed by our laser cutter and engraver. The laser is used in several steps: first it cuts the openings for the loudspeaker and the buttons into the front panel, engraving the hörbert logo at the front.
Then the bear is lasered onto the back.
Finally, hörbert receives the manufacturer’s information on the underside and each hörbert receives its own serial number.
A hörbert goes through many caring and competent hands, all of which literally leave their stamp to ensure the highest quality.
Look in your hörbert, you will find these stamps next to the speaker.
The hörberts with the most evenly coloured front are allowed on a special trolley reserved for those devices that are to receive a name engraving.
When you order a hörbert that will soon proudly bear your child’s name, our shipping team will select a hörbert and the laser will be used for the name engraving a fourth and final time.
hörbert – it can’t get more personal than that.
