Assortment boxes / Drawer units / Transport & storage containers / Packaging
Just as important as the tools and devices, is to keep track of everything, whether in the lab or workshop. Regardless of whether a workplace is stationary or mobile, to increase both efficiency and productivity, it is important to have structure and system when storing tools, spare parts and consumables.
Boxes, drawers and containers are made in many shapes and sizes. Assortment boxes contain several compartments, ideally suited for categorising and storing tiny items, such as different type of screws, bolts, and pins. Those with transparent covers offer easy visibility into the compartments. Many of these assortment boxes may be accessorised with tray inserts, to store more categories of items, without mixing. Drawer cabinets offer several small pull-out drawers, set within a sturdy frame, allowing for well-laid out, dustproof storage of a number of small items. These cabinets are available in various types, such as wall-mounted versions, table-top versions or rotating stands. Good models come with a pull-out locks, to prevent drawers from coming out completely and spilling the contents. Accessories such as labels, square cans and others improve the functionality of such storage systems. Transport and storage containers are relatively large boxes, many of them fitting pallets, and stackable. Such containers usually have hollow corners and a top-edge design, to enhance stability. Many containers have built-in slots, though accessories such as dividers and tray inserts are also widely available. Boxes, drawers and cabinets have different numbers of compartments or drawers, varying sizes of compartments, and different load capacity. Opt for robust boxes and containers, made with high-quality, breakproof plastic.
