Gladiator® GarageWorks and Lowe's don't think homeowners should have to park their cars in the driveway because their garages are filled with clutter. To make organizing easy, Gladiator is introducing the new Gladiator® Ready-to-Assemble (RTA) Steel Line, available exclusively at Lowe's starting in June. This new line was designed to provide a solution for Do-It-Yourselfers who want to complete their garage organization project in a single weekend and on a set budget.
"The whole idea behind garage organization is to expand the livable space of your home," said Todd Starr, director of the Gladiator® GarageWorks brand. "Our new RTA Steel Line is ideal for busy DIY looking to get their garage organized in a single day or weekend and then move on to another project or family activity. An organized garage can help free up space throughout the entire home."
The new RTA Steel Line incorporates Gladiator's signature tread plate design that delivers a distinctive and coordinated look in the garage. These new products can serve as an addition or complement to the original premium line of welded steel Gladiator Cabinets - also available at Lowe's. The RTA steel cabinets can be mixed and matched and when combined with Gladiator's wall storage system of GearTrack™ Channels, GearWall® Panels, hooks, baskets, and bins, they create a comprehensive and durable storage solution. Even better, many cabinets can be used on feet, casters or hung on the wall for added versatility to your garage organization system.
"Our customers tell us they are anxious to create order from the chaos that often describes their garage," explained Karena Bailey, Lowe's Vice President of Home Organization. "The addition of Gladiator's new ready-to-assemble products will give consumers many choices for quality, functional storage solutions to make the most of their space at an attractive price. Plus, with the Gladiator style, homeowners may want to leave the garage door open this summer to show it off to the neighbors."
A recent study on garage organization from Peachtree Consulting found that:
- The garage is ranked as the single biggest storage and organization headache in the home - ahead of closets, basements, kitchens, home offices, attics and laundry rooms
- Cleaning up and organizing the garage is a more highly ranked priority than buying a new computer, building a shed or adding a home office
- The garage is shifting more from a "male space" to a "shared space" - 50% of garage organization purchase decisions will be made by couples
Gladiator® Ready-To-Assemble Steel Cabinets
Gladiator's new RTA Steel Line provides the entry point into the Gladiator® System for cabinets constructed of steel. The cabinets have the same family look of the original Welded Steel cabinets and incorporate the same hammered granite powder-coat paint finish on the cabinet and Tread Plate steel on the door and drawer fronts.
