Penn State Side Line Helmet Repair Work Station
This case was designed for Penn State University as a side line helmet repair work station. The trunk features 12 Tilt Lock bins mounted in the lid. Each Tilt Lock bin features 3 individual storage compartments each, for a total of 36 individual compartments. The case lid also features a cordless drill storage compartment with a clear Lexan door. The drill’s battery charger is also mounted in the lid for quick access. A 6 outlet power strip is located in the center of the lid to provide easy access to power. The power strip is hard wired to a recessed male Hubbell inlet located on the back of the case. The case lid also features colored LED tape lights allowing for visibility in low lit environments.
The main work surface is built from ½” marine grade plastic for maximum durability. The drawers are built into a ½” plywood inner structure that is independent from the outer case shell. Isolating the drawers in an inner shell not only provides a cleaner exterior look by hiding the drawer fasteners; it also protects the drawer glides from torqueing associated with moving the case. Each drawer is built out of ½” Baltic birch plywood, finished with black texture coating, and mounted on HD Accuride glides. The top row of 3 drawers each feature a 3/8” clear hinged Lexan rain guard. The case lid features storage for white boards.
The case exterior is built out of 3/8” plywood laminated with navy blue abs plastic. The case features deep recessed hardware, and 8” field casters.
