FAQs

Vidmar StaticGard cabinets and workstations have static-dissipative tops which are designed to ensure a static-safe work environment.

All single cabinets should be secured to the floor. Multiple cabinets need not be anchored, but should be bolted side-by-side or back-to-back using Vidmar model number CCH-1, Cabinet Connecting Hardware. (Every Vidmar cabinet has pre-punched holes in the sides and rear of the top flanges for through-bolting use).

Single cabinet anchoring:

  1. Anchoring is to be done using hardware model numbers CAK-1 (for anchoring to concrete floors) or CAK-2 (for anchoring to wood floors).
  2. Follow drilling and bolting instructions provided with each anchoring kit.

Note: For proper installation, cabinets should be shimmed to be level within 1/16" in each direction.

Cabinets equipped with pallet bases may easily be moved by fork lift or pallet jack.
  1. Caution must be taken to insure that forks of lift truck are fully inserted beneath the cabinet before lifting, in order to prevent accidental tipping due to an unbalanced load.
  2. Prior to moving, all drawers must be fully closed and cabinet must be locked, or drawers must be banded shut if no cabinet lock or lock bar is present.

Cabinets not equipped with pallet bases require additional caution to secure drawers prior to moving.

  1. Remove several top drawers (for gripping and tilting purposes) prior to inserting lift truck forks beneath the cabinet.
  2. Extreme caution must be used to be certain no damage is done to the underside of the cabinet with forks.
Standard powder coat finish colors are Off White, Beige, Vidmar Green, Hunter Green, Light Blue, Bright Blue, Dark Blue, Red, Medium Gray, Vidmar Gray, Warm Gray, Olive Drab Green and Black. Please visit our dynamic color tool to visualize cabinets in different colors.
Vidmar does not recommend adding wheels/casters to existing cabinets unless the cabinet has lock-in/lock-out latches.
Lock-in/lock-out latches prevent drawers from moving when fully opened or closed. Raising the latch releases the drawer. The system keeps the drawer fully opened or closed by means of a finger-activated latch. The latching system should be factory installed, since field installation will require replacement drawers. The system is best used in any type of mobile application. This might entail use as roll-around cabinets, aboard ships and planes, and in vans and service vehicles.

This patented technology, the first of its kind in industrial storage cabinets, prevents opening more than one drawer at a time. This feature prevents accidental tipping of cabinets from several drawers being opened simultaneously. The SDR feature is not intended to replace lock in/lock out latches within mobile applications (vehicular and shipboard situations). This feature must be factory installed.

Drawers may be positioned every 3/4" within cabinets. The sum total of all drawer points (20, 35, 60, 90, etc.) must equal the total height points of the cabinet, but may be arranged in any sequence within the cabinet.

Changeover process:

  1. Remove drawer by opening fully, then lifting the front of the drawer in order to clear the carriage cross member.
  2. Remove the carriage by opening fully, then lifting two release latches (one per side) on carriage to clear carriage brackets.
  3. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove one screw from each carriage bracket.
  4. Remove carriage brackets by lifting upward and pulling forward.
  5. Relocate brackets to desire location and reverse the above steps to install carriage and drawer.

Caution: Be certain carriage is fully engaged to brackets before installing drawer, and be certain drawer is fully engaged to carriage before use.

  4. Repeat for the other side of the drawer.
  5. Once both tabs in the front of the drawer have been disengaged, pull the drawer straight out. Be careful to avoid dropping the drawer.

To re-installing the drawer, reverse procedure from above.
