Knaack storage chests have 16-gauge steel bodies and 14-gauge steel floors. All seams are arc welded. Each model has a baked enamel finish, powder coated for corrosion resistance. Knaack chests hold anything from fittings to shovels, providing various amounts of cubic feet of space. Lids attach to the body with piano hinges, providing protection against pry bars. Most chests have double lid hinges that lock in place for safety when the lid is opened. All Knaack tool storage chests are equipped with 4 skid-foot brackets that can be moved by forklift. The 7-gauge steel skids are pre-drilled so they'll accept accessory casters.
Vault-like Knaack storage chests come with two different locking systems. Classic™ models lock at 2 points with independent padlocks. Jobmaster® chests come with a Watchman® IV system that locks at 3 points with 1 padlock. Both models have recessed padlock housings so that the padlock shackle can't be exposed to bolt cutters.
All Knaack storage units are equipable with a variety of Knaack jobsite box accessories. Knaack chests are customizable with tool trays, internal LED lighting, mounted crane-left brackets, and 4-,5-and 6-inch caster wheels. All chests come with a Power Pass® Electrical Pass-Thru grommet that accepts a power cord for interior power.
