The modular cabinet is an independent storage cabinet used to receive a collection of objects that you’re looking to organize. In order to properly fulfill its functions, it must present certain specific characteristics.
On this level, the models that make up our MS series meet all the strictest criteria in terms of strength and product quality. In the paragraphs that follow, we’ll present an overview of the advantages of this line of storage cabinets.
The primary function of the drawers in modular cabinets is to receive objects that you’re hoping to store. Due to their size and arrangement, they allow you to store objects so as to save space, free from dust.
However, the downside of many drawers is that they tend to buckle when exposed to a considerable weight load. The drawers in the cabinets that make up the MS series each have a capacity of 440 lbs., which is 10% higher than industry standards. They are therefore very strong and durable.
To take full advantage of the effective storage capabilities of our modular cabinets, customizable separators and dividers are installed inside the drawers. This allows for very precise filing of the stored objects, which, due to the fact that the walls are full height, won’t move around from one box to another.
User comfort is emphasized in the MS line of modular cabinets. That’s why we’ve chosen to include ergonomic handles. The patented handle design is based on the practical aspect related to the daily use of the drawer. It lets you better control the opening of the drawer, depending on your needs.
The drawers in our MS modular cabinets open 100%, thereby allowing you to use these elements to their full potential. However, since lighting conditions aren’t always optimal in warehouses or storage areas, users sometimes have to get creative in order to see what’s at the bottom of the drawer. To address this shortcoming and prevent you from having to use a flashlight, our design includes built-in LED lighting that effectively distributes light. LED light bulbs are known for their longevity, in addition to being environmentally responsible.
Over the course of their lifespan, the drawers will repeatedly be opened. To last a long time, the roller system has to be reliable and easy to use. In addition, as the drawers are often filled with heavy objects, it’s absolutely essential that an anti-stalling system is present in order to avoid accidents. Our MS modular cabinets are equipped with a roller system from the Swiss engineering firm Delrin, also used by NASA.
Another important aspect that meets the strict requirements of our clients is the ability to lock the drawers. MS modular cabinets are outfitted with a digital locking system, thereby eliminating the need to deal with keys.
MS modular cabinets are equipped with an integrated fork base that lets you move them, if necessary. Furthermore, the fact that they don’t directly touch the floor helps protect the objects against any dirt or flooding, should such a situation occur.
