DEWALT has announced the release of the DEWALT Metal Workshop Storage System, a fully integrated storage solution to organize power tools, hand tools, outdoor equipment, stick tools, power tool accessories and more. The line consists of metal tool storage chests and cabinets as well as 25 new workshop accessories (sold separately) utilizing a heavy-duty metal rail as the centerpiece of the platform.
“Organization is crucial to keeping pros productive on the job – whether on the jobsite, in the warehouse, or in their personal workspaces,” said Doug Redpath, president, Hand Tools, Accessories and Storage Group, Stanley Black and Decker. “The DEWALT Metal Workshop Storage System, designed with our customers in mind, is fully customizable and engineered for tough storage demands in a variety of environments.”
Tool Storage Chests and Cabinets
Each chest features a DEWALT metal rail mounted inside as well as a battery rail that organizes up to four DEWALT batteries. Each cabinet has two metal rails mounted to the outside of the cabinet as well as two power tool holsters.
The chests and cabinets are built with heavy-gauge steel and feature full-extension, soft-close, ball-bearing drawers. Small drawers have a single set of slides and a max capacity of 100 lbs., while large and deep drawers are fortified with double slides that support up to 150 lbs. per drawer. Cabinets feature 6x2-in. casters with a 2,000-lb. load rating. Chests include an integrated 15-amp max load power strip with six power outlets and two USB ports for convenient charging of mobile devices and DEWALT power tools. The drawers are designed with an internal keyed lock and are lined with anti-slip mats.
The DEWALT metal storage range is made in the USA with global materials and includes 37-, 41- and 52-in. top chest and rolling cabinet combinations.
Heavy-Duty Metal Rail
As the centerpiece of the complete DEWALT Integrated Storage System, the durable steel rail can be mounted to DEWALT metal chests, cabinets and workbenches or directly to walls. With heavy-duty steel construction, this durable rail can support up to 100 lbs. per linear foot and works with a wide range of system accessories. The rail includes two endcap joiners that provide a finished look and the ability to connect multiple rails horizontally. Each accessory features a patented latching system that secures accessories directly to the metal rail. A wide variety of Metal Workshop Storage System Accessories mount directly to the rail to create customized organization solutions.
