Heavy-Duty Movement Built to Last
Every time we include photos of this client's work, people ask where to get these products. These rugged drawer units made by Emberton's Machine and Tool are used for bolt bins, hydraulic tanks, parts washers, tool trays, waste tanks, and more. They are made from galvanized steel and powder-coated in a range of colors.
The drawers and pullout units are mounted on Accuride models 3607 (with a lock out), 3600, and for smaller drawers, 6" and 8" 3832s (doubled up for extra strength). Emberton's units are sold to manufacturers that build heavy-duty service trucks for utility companies and municipalities. And, Emberton's products need to hold up to some serious abuse; their trucks bounce over rough roads, and encounter years of daily use and abuse when heavy tools are tossed into drawers that are slammed closed.
Randy Emberton chose Accuride products because he likes quality. "I know if there is ever a problem, I can get replacement slides -- no questions asked!" he says. Accuride worked with the company to make a slight alteration at Randy's request that enabled them to cut slide installation time by 50%.
The Emberton units are so strong, that some of Randy's clients re-use the toolboxes. After the vehicles have worn out, the toolboxes are removed, cleand up, and put onto a new truck chassis. Now that's a rugged product! You can see Emberton's full line of services and products at www.embertonsmachine.com.
Heavy-Duty Slides for Broadcast Vans
Polish flight case manufacturer Barczak Cases has completed a complex and highly technical fit out of an outside broadcast van for a client who provides TV services.
Barczak developed a custom system of drawers, shelves, and racks to secure this specialized equipment during transport. The vans are used as production suites, so the equipment also needs to be easily accessible.
Drawers are mounted on Accuride's heavy-duty 9301 slides and fitted with the CBHand Locking Handle Kit to ensure the drawers remain closed securely during transport and also locked into a stable when open for use during production. The combination of the 9301 full extension slides and the locking handle kit makes an ideal partnership for this type of mobile application.
