James Tobias, the UK’s leading StorageWall manufacturer, is consolidating its authority in the UK market with the launch of a new sliding door product.
The company is the UK’s largest manufacturer of aluminium-framed StorageWall and offers ten different storage ranges to the commercial office and interiors fit-out market. With their high quality all-British construction, unique design and superior weight loadings, James Tobias StorageWall products have set the benchmark in the sector for more than 20 years.
The company is now responding to market requirements by launching a sliding door version of its storagewall product. Complementing the established hinge door variants, the sliding door product is especially suitable for installations where a neat or space-efficient solution is required.
Sliding door offers all the established benefits of the James Tobias storagewall range. These include: manufacture using structured aluminium carcass offering up to two-and-a-half times better weight loadings compared to pegboard systems; full floor-to-ceiling design for 20 per cent better space utilisation and the ability to partition office space; off-site construction to minimise disruption during installation; as well as survey and installation by members of James Tobias’ own in-house team.
These are benefits which have already been recognised by fit-out contractors, such as Hunts Office Furniture & Interiors Ltd, who have started to use the new product in their latest commercial installations. “We’re always looking to deliver value and innovation to our clients,” says James Low, business development director at Hunts. “Some customers are looking for sliding door storage and, backed up by James Tobias quality and the company’s commitment to partnership working, I think this product is going to deliver what the market is looking for.”
As with other James Tobias ranges, the new sliding door product comes with steel internals, each shelf capable of holding around 40kg. Sliding door mechanisms are manufactured in the UK and are designed for near silent glide operation and maximum durability.
“We are currently expanding our business with commercial customers all over the UK, and our established products are well-known and respected throughout the fit-out sector,” explains David McLaren, director. “This latest innovation is designed to meet a customer requirement, and certainly our early impressions are that it is being well-received by the market.”
