Drawer Cabinet System

Drawer cabinet System


Drawers are designed for heavy loads, manufactured from quality sheetsteel. Sidewalls, floors and drawer front are formed in one piece, rails, rear wall and floor stiffener are welded on to complete the drawer. The removable drawer front faceplate provides additional stiffening and carries the drawer handle. The drawer walls are formed with slots at 36mm distance, whereas the floor is perforated with the same grid dimensions. Mechanical end stops are provided against drawer run-out. Drawers are fitted with precision steel ball bearings and rear rubber stops for silent closing. All metal parts are epoxy coated.

Extension of drawers

Drawer cabinets fitted with "full-extension" drawers, are to be bolted to the floor, for safety reasons. Drawers with full extension, have an evenly spread load capacity of 200kg, achieved by a fitted undercarriage, which is manufactured from 3mm quality sheet steel. A combination of single and full extension drawers is possible.

Drawer dividers and partitions

A selection of dividers and slotted partitions are available to optimise material and tools of any kind.  Plastic containers, troughs and even rubber mats, which have been laser cut to accommodate specific tooling, revealing the shape of the item being stored and rendering easy identification of missing items, are offered.

Cabinet housing

The robust cabinet housing is made from a single piece of sheetsteel casing with profile and welded carrier elements at the front and rear.

Work top

Work top made from laminated saligna timber commercially grown in the Eastern Province of South Africa with bullnose rounded edges and fitted with backstay. The drawer handles have two marking areas (for colour coding and inscriptions) secured by plastic end caps.

Central locking system

The Metmeister dual action, central locking system with barrel lock and single drawer release button, will prevent inadvertent opening of more than one drawer. Barrel locks are supplied with two keys. The arrangement of the locking system prevents any force on lock or key.

Floor anchoring system

Metmeister Drawer cabinets are factory fitted with floor anchoring brackets.
