Chapters

1. Preparation

Start with a clean and safe environment to avoid scratches during installment. Lay down the frame profiles as shown in the video below.

 

2. Check that all the bushings are open

Open the connectors before assembling


3. Connect the frame profiles

If the table is 340 cm or longer, you will need to connect several frame profiles in the length. If your table is smaller than 340 cm, the frame profile consists of just one length piece.

Use 2 extension connector pins and 4 bushings for each connection. Push in the bushings first. Make sure the slit on top of the bushing is in line with the profile. Push in the extension connector through the open eye of the bushing. Make sure the tapered hole is in line with the bushing. Tighten the adjusting screw within the bushing with Allen key nr. 5 as tight as possible. 

Connect the bushings in the other frame profile in the same way as the first profile. Then push the frame profiles against each other so the extension connector pins of the right part will go through the opened bushings in the other profile. Lastly tighten the adjuster screws as tight as possible.


4. Assemble the cross profiles

Mounting the universal connectors on both ends of the cross profiles. The delivered length of the cross profile is based on the width of the table.

- If the table top is 90 – 140 cm wide, the cross profile is 160 mm.
- If the table top is 141 – 170 cm wide, the cross profile is 410 mm.
- If the table top is 171 – 200 cm wide, the cross profile is 710 mm.

Mounting the universal connectors is done by putting a bushing into the hole in the cross profile. Make sure the slit on top of the bushing is in line with the cross profile. Then push the universal connector pin into the end of the profile through the open eye of the bushing. Make sure the tapered hole in the pin is in line with the adjusting screw.

Tighten the bushing with the Nr. 5 Allen Key just enough so the pin won’t get pushed out. The adjusting screw falls into the tapered hole in the pin so the bushing cannot be pushed out.

Repeat this step for all cross profiles.


5. Connect the cross parts to the frame

Slide the assembled cross profiles into the frame profiles and divide them evenly over the frame profiles. On both ends, a cross profile needs to align perfectly with the frame profiles. Now hand tighten every bushing with Allen key nr. 5 tool as tight as possible.

Note: this step requires strong tightening. Tightening with a drill is not strong enough.


6. Click in the sliding nuts

Glide the sliding nuts into the slot on the sloping side of the frame profile. Use 2 sliding nuts for each table leg.


7. Connect the table legs

Place a leg onto the sloping side of the frame profile. Make sure the bottom of the leg is placed in the right direction. Align the sliding nuts with the holes in the connection plate of the leg. Fasten them with an Allen key nr. 6 and two M8x16 cylindrical bolts.

The legs can be positioned anywhere on the frame profile as long as the the table stays balanced. You can use a tape measure to align the legs perfectly. The leg placement can be adjusted at any time. However, it is recommended to initialy choose the exact placement. Keep in mind that the table top is wider than the frame. 


8. Connect the adjustable feet

Twist the adjustable feet into the bottom of the leg.


9. Screw on the covers

Be sure you screw on the covers before putting the table on its legs.

Screw on the covers on both ends of the frame with the self-tapping M3x10 screws.


10. Flip the table frame around

Ask a colleague to assist you.


11. Remove the safety blankets

Remove the blankets to avoid slipping.


12. Add the pre-tensioners (only for long tables)

With long tables or special requests regarding the placement of the legs, De Vorm adds pre-tensioners to the frame. If not supplied, this step is not required for your table.

Add the pre-tensioners as shown in the video below.

After getting the pre tensioners in place, make sure every bushing is as tight as possible, creating a pre-tensioned table frame ready to hold the heavy table top.


13. Lay down the table top

Lay down the table top securely and ensure it is well balanced.

Use the pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the table top as a reference for the right placement. Connect the table top to the frame with the 5x16 mm screws.


14. Connect the different table tops

When the table top consists out of 2 or more elements, De Vorm supplies Domino's, Festool.

Push them firmly into the table tops. Then push the table tops against each other and align the table tops as close as possible.


15. Use the table top connectors

Use the table top connectors, tightening them with a Nr. 10 wrench.


16. Repeat step 14 and 15 (if the table has more than 2 table top elements)

If your table top consists of more than 2 elements, repeat step 14 and 15 for each element.


17. Connect the table tops to the frame

Make sure the table tops are placed on the frame correctly. Using the pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the table tops as a reference.

Finally connect the table top to the frame with the 5x16 mm screws.


18. You are done!

You have finished the assembly of the BIG Modular Table System.

19. Cable binders

Cables are easily guided by adjusting cable binders in the frame profiles.
