Durability and Gladiator® GarageWorks go hand-in-hand, and now, so does nature's hardest material - bamboo.

"Gladiator brand prides itself on the durability and quality of our products so it's only natural that we used nature's most reliable and renewable material for our workbench," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "The workbench is ideal for hobbyists like woodworkers, car enthusiasts and gardeners who want a natural work surface for everyday use in the garage."

The Gladiator® 66.5" Bamboo Modular Workbench has a 1.5" thick solid bamboo work surface that comes with a multi-layer core and UV-cured protective coating. With space to dock up to two Gladiator® Ready-To-Assemble series Modular GearBoxes or Modular GearDrawers, the workbench affords consumers with superior versatility, allowing them to create a work area within the garage. The threaded bolt leveler legs allow height adjustment to compensate for uneven floors and nylon pads prevent floor stains and corrosion.

In addition to the Bamboo Modular Workbench, Gladiator brand will display its signature line-up of tool chests, cabinets, wall systems, flooring, appliances and more to help consumers organize and provide appropriate shelter for their belongings big and small. To demonstrate, Gladiator® GarageWorks will make room for the new Gladiator branded motorcycle custom built by reality TV's Orange County Choppers and Paul Tetul Sr. The bike was unveiled on the Jan. 21, 2010 episode of American Chopper on TLC.

Paul Tetul Sr. also will be in the Gladiator booth on the first day of the show from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. for private, invitation-only visits and from 1:30 - 2:00 p.m. for a meet-and-greet with show attendees (Booth #6917 at the Las Vegas Convention Center). Consumers who attend can hear first-hand how Paul and Gladiator® GarageWorks worked together to design and build a bike that showcases the toughness, versatility and sleek design elements of Gladiator® GarageWorks products.
