Modular Drawer Cabinets are very efficient for storing small items such as parts, tools and other maintenance items. Modular Drawer Cabinets are most efficient when the individual items being stored have a volume of less than 1 ft cubed and the aggregate weight doe not exceed 400 lbs. per drawer. Modular Drawer Cabinets typically have uniform bodies that only vary in height. When configuring a modular drawer storage system it is important to select a combination of drawer heights that matches inventory and then choose a range of cabinet heights that accommodates the required number of drawers but also provide work surfaces and counter tops.
Modular Drawer Cabinets are available in the following heights:
Desk Height: 27″
Table Height: 30″
Bench Height: 33″
Counter Height: 44″
Eye Level Height: 59″
Determining Drawer Requirements:
1. Determine what items will be stored.
2. Store items in drawers by height grouping. (This will tell you how many drawers of each height you will need.)
3. Calculate the total surface area in square feet that each height group will occupy at its average inventory level.
4. The surface area of a standard storage drawer is 4 ft squared. Divide the total square feet of inventory to be stored in drawers by 4, to determine the total number of drawers that will be required.
