Installing lockable and heavy-duty tool cabinets are a massive step in achieving your Lean Management Goals.
If you do need a heavy-duty Blue Steel Industry Standard tool cabinet then here are the specs.
Industrial Grade Fabrication
First, let’s talk about the shell or box.
The 5S Tool Cabinet shell is fabricated 12 Gauge Steel, fully welded and boxed together, and this provides excellent strength to the cabinet.
The sheet metal is CNC punched in the flat pattern to make sure everything lines up correctly when assembled. The cabinet must be secured to a heavy-duty stand, wall-mounted or mounted to a workbench. We provide six, 3/8″-16 nut inserts on each side for mounting even the optional canopy for outdoor use.
Second, the doors.
We also punch the doors and form and fit it to the cabinet to ensure smooth movement. The doors have clear 1/4″ thick poly-carbonate inserts for a quick visual audit of tools. Each sliding door has two slides rated at 300 lbs each so that the doors are durable and have smooth movement. The doors have padlock tabs so you can apply your tool control padlock.
Third, the interior.
The back and side walls are 12 gauge galvanized pegboard securely welded in place this will give you the maximum versatility for storage space. This heavy-duty set up will support hundreds of pounds of impact guns, sockets, pipe wrenches, and everything else you may need.
Fourth the finish.
The cabinet and doors are powder coated with zinc-rich primer, and a Safety Yellow coated surface, that is going to give our storage cabinet excellent corrosion resistance. The galvanized pegboard is already corrosion resistant and is not painted to ensure the hangers fit correctly.
Achieving your Lean Management Goals
After installing these cabinets and design your most efficient layout, you may want to have a shadow board graphic painted or applied for a quick visual accounting of the tools. You have a padlock provision if you desire to have key control of the cabinet. Supervisors have easy visual management to verify that the tools are all returned and secure at the end of the shift.
The Blue Steel heavy-duty tool cabinet provides the storage solution for your next step for the implementation of your 5S visual management in your shop.
We have hundreds of these units in place inside of repair shops and to store tools in outdoor storage areas.
