Workbench Cabinets - Need an area for gardening, a woodworking shop, or an auto shop? Workbench Cabinets will fill your needs. Workbench Cabinets will organize everything in easy reach.

The off-the-floor design comes in a rugged powder-coated finish, and are designed to take nearly anything everyday life can throw at them.

Slimline Cabinets - Unique in the industry, these cabinets are designed to fit into spaces other storage cabinets can't. Slimline cabinets are available in two styles; storage cabinets and lockers. They feature a tall vertical design and can fit in areas with less than 20" of depth and as little as 16" of width.  Lockers: 16” wide cabinets feature a single door, and are great for use as individual lockers for family members or employees, or for general storage. Available in 12” or 15” depths. Storage Cabinets: feature bi-fold doors that open wide for easy access, but need only 7” of clearance to open. Shelves adjust to fit any need. Available in 12” or 15” depths, and 16" or 32" widths.

A large selection of shelves, hooks and pegs are available to complete your organizer.

Storage Lift Systems - Need room for a garden tractor, motorcycle, snowmobile or other large item, but have no space on your floor? Our Loft-It™ Storage Lift System can lift 1,200 lbs. up to 6 feet off the floor. This motorized lift is key-controlled to keep it safe from kids, and everything folds flat against the wall when not in use. Easy to access at any time or great for out-of-season storage.
