Hinges on post allow one-handed opening of drawers for full display of heavy-duty content
The Penner family has been in the metal fabrication business since 1967 and has gone through a succession of toolboxes and work benches. They were disappointed with how many of those boxes and benches simply didn’t last when it came to dealing with heavy tools and a dusty atmosphere, so they decided to create their own boxes.
Not only are Swivel Storage Solution toolboxes and workbenches heavy-duty, but, as the name indicates, they also feature a swivel hinge rather than the traditional slide-out drawer system.
The swivel hinge is built around a steel post and isn’t bothered by dust or debris. It also allows drawers to be opened with a single hand, and to be opened for a full display of everything inside; nothing is hidden in the back recesses.
Swivel boxes are made from fewer parts than traditional tool boxes, but are built strongly enough that someone can stand in a drawer without damage to the drawer or the box.
The boxes are produced in a variety of sizes and setups, from corner units and rolling boxes topped by a workbench surface for use in a garage to units designed to fit into a truck or van.
Depending on the design, 12-, 14-or 16-gauge steel is used. Boxes and drawers are powder-coated. Prices range from $1,000 to $5,000.
