Everything You Need to Know About IMC Storage Cabinets

We’ve spoken about wall cabinets & base cabinets before & the many benefits that come with them. It’s a fact that these cabinets play a pivotal role in food service, wash-down & cleanroom environments. With that said, let’s address the tall counterpart to these – IMC storage cabinets.

If you have sufficient floor & vertical space in your commercial facility, IMC storage cabinets will be the perfect fit. Their height (84″ standard) & utility shelf arrangement provides higher storage volume within a compact floor space.

In this article, we will take a look at the primary benefits & styles of IMC storage cabinets. Let’s begin.

What’s the Benefit of Owning a Storage Cabinet?

With so many items used in commercial facilities, you will need a place to hold your valuable tools when not in use. If you want your operation to run smoothly, organization & tidiness are an essential element. Having your items laying out in your work area can be daunting & decrease productivity. This is why storage cabinets are some of the most vital pieces of equipment to have in your facility.

Cabinet Configurations – Pick the Best One to Suit Your Needs

Once again, there are three main types of configurations for IMC storage cabinets. Remember that whichever configuration you choose, all IMC storage cabinets are fitted with (5) stainless steel shelves that are adjustable & removable without the use of tools. More shelves can be added if needed. All IMC storage cabinets have a sloped top (flat top is available as an option) & ship fully assembled.

Open Front – As the name suggests, an open front design has no doors allowing contents to be seen clearly at all times without any barriers. With this design, you can be sure your items are kept safe & sanitary, out of sight of guests but still easy & fast to access for your employees. An open front storage cabinet can be seen below:

Hinged Doors –  Hinged doors allow you to keep contents concealed, secure & orderly. Hinged doors can also be equipped with a lock for maximum security. You may also add glass to the hinged door(s) for easy viewing of contents. Depending on the length of your storage cabinet, the number of hinged doors will differ. Here’s a quick sizing guide:

  • 24″L – 1 door only
  • 30″ – 96″L – 2 doors

Here’s an example of a storage cabinet with (2) hinged doors:

Sliding Doors – Sliding doors are designed to hide your equipment & supplies without taking up extra workspace. Sliding doors do not block any outside space, thanks to the sideways sliding design. This is useful in areas where space is tight & cramped. Here’s an example of a sliding door storage cabinet:

What If You Need a Security Package?

Correctional facilities require all stainless steel equipment to be durable, with no exposed or removable parts that can be used as a weapon. The SC-SEC is the ultimate storage cabinet for correctional facilities. 

The SC-SEC provides maximum security of firearms & other accessories in an easily accessible lockable location. Special see-thru mesh doors permit instant inspection of cabinet contents, to make sure nothing is missing. Welded tabs are built in around the cabinet for bolting to a wall. Flanged feet are also provided for bolting to the floor. Take a look at an IMC security storage cabinet below:

What About the Customization?

Storage cabinets are meant to work for you. With that said, IMC offers plenty of customization options to complement your storage needs. A popular option is ¼” tempered glass instead of the standard solid doors. The tempered glass allows you to visibly see all contents inside of a cabinet without having to open any doors. For example, glass door cabinets can be used in open kitchens or display areas of high profile kitchens

Another useful option is the addition of casters. Your storage cabinet doesn’t have to be stationary all the time, equip yours with 5″ plate poly casters to maneuver your cabinet around the facility. 

If you need an extra shelf or fixed shelves, IMC is able to accommodate you to get the most out of your storage cabinet.
