MANUFACTURING

From design to the development of the prototype, we manufacture ourselves all our furniture, basing on many years of experience, and using materials chosen for their quality and durability.  All manufacturing steps until the last detail take place in our facilities. This ensures us that our customers receive the best product.

Silhouet-Tone constantly re-evaluates proven methods, techniques and equipment with an eye to ongoing improvement. Whether we are fine-tuning a part, engineering a new product, or planning a training seminar, we pay close attention to every detail. Just like our furniture which combines rigorous design functionality with esthetic appeal, our devices lay equal emphasis on quality and innovation to bring you the latest in non-invasive age-management solutions.

Design

Functionality and beauty are very closely linked. Silhouet-Tone painstakingly examines each and every aspect of its products before going into production. As you would expect, we strive to create equipment that “keeps its promise” and gets the job done. However, ensuring ease of use for the operator is an important consideration as well. As for the beauty aspect of our products, we want each piece of equipment and furniture to grace your salon or spa with an added touch of elegance.

Foam

The foam we use is up to three inches (7.6 cm) thick.  In accordance with American standards, our environmentally-friendly foam contains no CFCs, no insecticides and no formaldehyde. It is also free of fillers (typically used to reduce costs but results in an irregular and sagging appearance). In addition to its unrivalled comfort due to its high density, our foam is extremely resilient, which allows it to recover its original shape after being compressed.

Sewing

Our sewing method uses unbreakable Kevlar thread, among other things, to reinforce and strengthen weak points typically located where weight and rubbing take their toll. Our experienced seamstresses change their needles every 2-3 days. This ensures consistent and accurate stitching and helps prevent skipped stitches, resulting in exceptionally durable seams.

Steel & Wood

Our steel-framed furniture is made of 12G or 14G steel, making it rock solid, stable and durable.  Our metal components and those of our suppliers undergo several processes in order to meet RoHS compliance.

Our top quality, FSC-certified wood is sourced from environmentally-conscious and sustainable logging companies. We use computerized cuts to reduce waste. Furthermore, bolt entry points are reinforced with steel plates, protecting the wood from rubbing and instability. Under our cushions, we use 1.9 cm of solid ash, unlike many competitors who use nothing more than 0.63 cm. Proof that the quality of Silhouet-Tone products far exceeds the competition.

Motors

Our European-made motors meet international electrical safety standards and are TUV or UL certified. They also comply with the European Union’s technical standards and are CE marked.

Our whisper-quiet motors allow for gentle and extremely precise angle adjustments, with slow starts and stops to prevent jarring and abrupt movements.

Our medical devices are licensed by the Department of Health of the Government of Canada and are also certified ISO 9001 and ISO 13485.

Quality

At Silhouet -Tone, quality is not just an eye-catching word used to attract the attention of consumers. Our staff works together as a team to produce the kind of furniture and equipment that not only looks good, but is built from the inside out…to last. Backed by years of experience, and by having control over all stages of the manufacturing process, we oversee everything down to the last details.This enables us to provide our clients with nothing less than the highest quality products.

Printed Circuits

Our teams of experts are skilled at assembling high quality printed circuit boards. We take great pride in drawing, assembling and designing them in our very own workshop. In fact, all of the components in the printed circuits are deliberately designed to work in synergy with the processes in each of the devices.

CNC Machines

Thanks to our CNC (computer numerical control) machines, we can fabricate complex precision parts from wood, plastic and metal, all in our own workshop. In addition to ensuring unrivaled workmanship, this also allows us to reduce our impact on the environment by reducing waste.

Extraction Tables

Mindful of the health of our employees, we have equipped our factories with extraction tables that safely remove steel dust particulates from the air.  In fact, thanks to our local exhaust ventilation systems, dust is exhausted into a collecting system, leaving employees with a safe and healthy work environment that complies with the directives set out by the CSST (Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail).

Welding Equipment

Working with the latest generation of welding equipment, we are able to perform techniques on steel and aluminum.  This provides us with the freedom to produce each and every part needed to manufacture our products, on-site.

Thermoforming & Injection Molding

Having our own thermoforming and injection molding installations allows us to fabricate parts of various sizes. It also makes it possible for us to create complex shapes such as sharp edges, undercuts and reliefs. As a result, our parts retain their properties and surface finish options are endless.
