The new Gladiator® GarageWorks tool chests are being introduced as part of the brand's continued effort to meet the diverse organizational needs of homeowners. The Gladiator® Tool GearChest is designed to help consumers organize small tools which often get lost in the garage. With multiple drawers and compartments, the Gladiator® Tool GearChest is a must-have for the weekend warrior or the expert do-it-yourselfer.
"Garage organization is a growing trend as consumers look for ways to protect and safely store items both large and small," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing manager for Gladiator® GarageWorks. "Not only will the Gladiator® Tool GearChest and the new line of tool chests help consumers with storage, it will save them time and money often wasted looking for or replacing lost items and keep them safely stowed in the garage."
The Gladiator® Tool GearChest provides 15 percent more capacity in each drawer compared to standard tool chests due to its increased depth. It stands 18.6-inches high, 26-inches wide and 18.5-inches deep and has a rated weight capacity of 300 pounds. It contains four two-inch split-width drawers ideal for smaller parts and tools, such as socket sets, fasteners and screws; three two-inch full-width drawers ideal for screw drivers and wrenches; and one three-inch full-width drawer ideal for larger hand tools such as hammers and mallets. The chest also includes a 2.75-inch divided till, with the front area designed to house pencils and rulers and a larger rear compartment for bigger hand tools. It is made of welded steel, has a tread plate design and features lockable drawers. Designed to stand alone or stack on the brand's Premier Modular GearDrawer, the Gladiator® Tool Chest has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $479.99.
Gladiator brand will also introduce several additional tool chests - in Classic and Premier versions - that will become available in coming months. Both versions will be three piece stackable units available for purchase separately. Components will include the Gladiator® 7 Drawer Roll Away base, the Gladiator® 3 Drawer Intermediate Chest and the Gladiator® 6 Drawer Chest as the top unit. Additionally, Gladiator brand will introduce Wide Tool Chests, which will be available in a 41-inch two piece stack or 52-inch two piece stack.
