"Gladiator® GarageWorks has created an innovative storage and organization system, designed to stand up to extreme conditions and to adapt to our customers' individual needs as they change over time," said Mario D'Ovidio, brand manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "We've used customer input to design new versatile products that will help people reclaim their space once and for all, and allow them to make every part of their home a place they are proud to share."

The Gladiator® Storage Bench (20 inches high, 18 inches deep and 54 inches wide) is a practical unit that can store 18 to 24 pairs of shoes. The unit is built with bypass doors and a 1.5 inch thick bamboo top, an environmentally friendly, yet durable material. Ideal for entry ways, utility rooms, mud rooms, or even at the foot of a bed, the bench comes with two shelves with options to add four more -- for a total of six -- shelves.

The Gladiator® Adjustable Workbench is a truly versatile product that adjusts to varying heights (29 inch standard desk height to 42 inch standard bar height), comes in three widths (four, six or eight feet) and has three size options for drawers (narrow, shallow and deep). The 4-foot workbench is perfect for a home office while the 8-foot workbench can accommodate larger garage projects. The workbench is made with a 1.75 inch thick bamboo top.

Gladiator® Corner Shelving helps to maximize the storage efficiency of every square inch of the garage. Built off the design of the current 30 inch and 48 inch shelving units, the corner shelving unit comes with the option to hang bar rods under the shelves to take advantage of vertical wall space. This added feature makes this product ideal for closets or laundry rooms when there is a need to hang and store items up high.

Gladiator® Bamboo Tops, designed to fit all Gladiator® Premier and Ready-to-Assemble modules, provides a study work surface for all types of garage projects. The three-fourths inch top fits securely on top of the GearBox or GearDrawer to create a flexible work station. Made from nature's strongest and most renewable material, the Bamboo Top matches Gladiator brand's bamboo workbench top for a coordinated look.

All of these products will be on display during the National Hardware Show (May 10 – 12, 2011) alongside Gladiator brand's signature line-up including tool chests, cabinets, wall systems, flooring, appliances and more. Show attendees can visit Booth #6917 at the Las Vegas Convention Center to learn more about the durability, flexibility and design aesthetics of Gladiator® GarageWorks products.
