IAC Industries adds 7 new pedestal configurations to its line of Workmaster® Storage Cabinets (WSC). The new pedestals units offer wide, large capacity drawers in combination with split-door cabinet compartments. The cabinet pedestals support a variety of worksurface options that include laminates, maple butcher block and stainless steel.
Company President, Don Murphy explains, "The drawer-only pedestals that we launched this line with provided great storage because the pedestal and drawers are much larger than those found on standard size workbenches. Still, customers asked for more. They asked us to include a compartment for objects larger and heavier than suitable for the 12" height of our largest drawer. The addition of these truly cavernous cabinet areas provides capacity for very large items, without weight constraints inevitable on a slide-out drawer. The largest offers 12 cubic feet of storage."
Cabinet pedestal sizes offer plenty of choices for customers to configure the right size workbench for their needs. Each pedestal is 29.5" wide, allowing one or two pedestals to fit under either the 60" or 72" long worksurfaces. The 96" long worksurface allows for up to three pedestals side by side. IAC provides a choice of sixteen (16) different cabinet configurations. Each configuration is made up of a combination of 3", 6" and/or 12" high drawers, and now with cabinets up to 27" tall. Optional locks are available for drawers.
Cabinets offer up to 12 cubic feet of storage, and shelving divides the space as needed. A 3-point locking handle securely latches the door when closed. The drawers are heavy duty and incorporate two recessed handles to prevent accidental collision with carts, chairs and knees. Each drawer uses top-quality Accuride® steel ball-bearing glides that feature 95% extension and provide a weight capacity of 100 lbs. Drawer dividers are available to compartmentalize the space. The dividers provide either 48 3"x3" or 12 6"x6" compartments. An optional ribbed rubber mat for the drawer bottom helps to prevent small parts and tools from rolling around the drawer. Label holders are also a popular option.
Storage Cabinet Workbenches support an evenly distributed static load of 1,000 lbs. Worksurfaces are available in lengths of 60", 72" and 96", and depths of 30" or 36". Worksurface height may be specified at 33" or 36".
Accessories available to expand the functionality of these new workbenches include IAC's Multi-Task Systems (upper utility structures), instrument shelves and accessories, electrical channels, lower metal shelves, backsplash and end stops, modesty and end panels, ESD ground block and personal ground kits.
