Practical Novelty. Transparent Plastic Sheaths for the ATOMA System.
Continuously, we have been asked for offering a way of storing and keeping documents in the ATOMA system even if they are not to be punched. Therefore, we are adding solid plastic sheaths to our range of products. Like the other parts of the system, they are made in Belgium, of polypropylene, with a slightly rough surface and an above-average material thickness of 80 µm (30-50 µm is common). Since the sleeves are made to hold A4 sheets, they are naturally larger than these. Consequently, the matching covers must also be broader and higher than those we offer for the A4 format. We have put together such a book with two extra-large Texon covers, 20 sheaths, and aluminium rings with 24 mm Ø. The size of the latter ensures that you can add several more sleeves or other inserts of your choice, which are of course smaller than the lids, thus creating a protrusion. You can combine the sheaths with the texon covers in A4 or the texon covers in A4 extra wide. In this case, however, the sleeves will protrude slightly.
Manufactum’s ATOMA. A Notebook and Organizing System in Separate Parts and as a Kit.
The 60-year-old Belgian ATOMA notebook system consists entirely of runaway rings and flighty pages, whereby the rings prevent the pages from flying off and the pages prevent the rings from running away – at any rate, thanks to a patented special perforation the pages can always be easily separated from each other. So you can add, rearrange or combine the various forms from your own notebooks any time you want to, – with forms, calendar or addresses you can generate with your PC on the blank forms and then perforate them with the ATOMA hole puncher.
The Way It Works.
This is how you put together your notebook: – the rings (Ø 17 or 24 mm) – eleven for an A4- and eight for an A5 notebook; – a 0.8 mm thick texon cover we provide in A4 and A5 and extra wide for the A4 and A5 tabs; – specially perforated inserts (90 g/ m²) in A4 and A5; and – inscribable tabs with a 6-fold index extra wide for A4 and A5. Assembly is easy: first you insert the rings in the rear cover, then slip the inserts (we advise to take 8 sheets at once) on the rings, finally add the front cover. We also offer all blank varieties as ready-made notebooks.
Some Notes on the Cover Material. Texon.
Texon is used as a substitute for leather or cardboard, but also as binding material. The paper-like material made of latex coated cellulose fiber is waterproof and insensitive to moisture. It is also highly resistant to mechanical stress, and after long use it will not “deconstruct” into its constituent layers like conventional open edge cardboard.
