Boscotek Industrial Storage was the proud supplier of industrial workshop storage and workbenches to Kangan Institute’s new $20.5 million Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) at Docklands, Melbourne.

Industrial storage solution
Boscotek‘s industrial storage products are featured in all 13 open-plan educational workshop sectors, spanning 2 levels. Scores of heavy duty workbenches offer durable work surfaces for students to carry out their training tasks and include galvanised and stainless steel bench tops with a wet edge to retain fluids.

Flight Line cabinets were installed to improve storage flexibility and access of tools and equipment with the additional security benefit of knowing what tools are in use and what needs to be replaced. This is especially beneficial with areas with high tool usage. 

A-Frame Perforated Panel Trolleys were selected as a lighter mobile storage solution for tools and equipment, designed to reduce excessive movement and time to locate and access tools. 

New Lock and Twist Tool Hooks were used extensively throughout the facility to hang and store equipment on all Boscotek Perforated Panels. These innovative tool hooks have many advantages over similar products with their flexible design and lock feature, which means they don’t need to be accessed from the rear to reposition them, yet remain locked in position and can be relocated in seconds. 

Boscotek High Density Storage Cabinets were arranged in multiple configurations to form various workstations for students across each workshop. Offering flexible combinations of drawer storage, cupboards and open shelving for tools and spare parts, each workstation was completed with a robust bench top from either 40mm thick solid oak, stainless or galvanised steel. Custom perforated cupboard doors were also used for ventilated storage of computer equipment.      

Boscotek’s 120mm Heuer Bench Vice was selected as the preferred product for many of the workstations. Made in Germany from drop forged steel, each vice was mounted front and rear allowing easy access from both sides. 

Lecture rooms were also equipped with a range of Bosco Office Tambour Door Cabinets, keeping aisle ways free with smoothly receding doors and adjustable shelving. Powder coated in white, these cabinets offer contemporary styling.
