The Versatility of the Gang Box

The Versatility of the Gang Box

In the middle of the worksite sit an imposing structure of durable steel. It is unaffected by the dust, the heat, and the rain where it sits unprotected in the elements waiting to be unlocked. It’s a gang box and the construction company’s key to successfully and safely storing essential work equipment. No construction site is complete without one. This all-in-one metal chest meets a variety of needs and functions on the field. While it may resemble in shape and color of an office cabinet, the Gang Box is designed for more rugged environments. Gang boxes can accommodate the shape and weight of jobsite power tools while keeping them protected from environment damage, and even theft. These above average storage tools are designed with protection in mind: for tools that are too unwieldy or inconvenient to tote off site, a Gang Box’s hidden lock and tidy seams can prevent even the most persistent of thieves from prying away your company’s assets. Available in a variety of models and sizes, gang boxes are a ubiquitous sight amongst construction sites.

However, Gang Boxes have a home beyond the construction site. Homeowners and small business have found amazing ways to utilize the ultimate in portable security. Gang Boxes from brands like Knaack provide security features that rival a consumer safe, while also providing greater versatility and ease of use. Knaack gang boxes use a hidden lock system called the integrated three-point locking system that is inaccessible by any pry bar when locked. Improved hinges and ball stud brackets are designed with anti-theft measures in mind; by reducing the space between the door and sidewall when shut, these gang boxes eliminate the space needed to insert a pry bar when locked. Therefore, the gang box maintains its reputation as an ideal solution for storing valuable items, whether that be heirlooms, protective firearms, computers and technology, documents, or in the more traditional sense- construction equipment.

Gang boxes are a justified expense

for construction companies and growing businesses; however, the rising price of new equipment may be a deterrent for many consumers. For buyers looking to make a more conscientious purchase, consider remanufactured gang boxes.
