TORC Garage Cabinets – Built to Last
TORC garage storage cabinets are not your typical garage cabinet that is shipped in from overseas, delivered in a box and thrown together with a little glue and a few brads. Garage Concepts has researched garage cabinets to find where the average cabinet fails.
Then we went searching for a top case work cabinet shop with a great reputation of building strong, dependable commercial grade cabinets and commissioned them to build our TORC Cabinets. We took all the common failures into consideration and, with the help of the manufacturer, Garage Concepts designed the ultimate garage cabinets; TORC Garage Cabinets. Here are a few things that separate TORC Garage Cabinets from the rest:
TORC Garage Cabinets get their long lasting beauty from a machine-pressed laminate finish. Laminates are strong and durable and can hold up to the abuse that garage cabinets are subjected to, unlike thermo-fused melamine finishes. The other key to creating a finish we can stand behind is the way the laminate is applied to our cabinets. Most laminates are applied with contact cement and hand-rolled to get adhesion. Our TORC Cabinets get laminated and then machine pressed for maximum adhesion that withstand the toughest summer heat Texas can throw at them.
All cabinet doors on TORC Garage Cabinets are constructed with strong, 6-way adjustable Blum hinges. In addition to the added strength of the hinges, TORC Cabinets are built with 30% more hinges per door, guaranteeing not to sag over time. We don’t build TORC Garage Cabinets to be solid today, we build them to be solid for a lifetime.
To ensure that our cabinet drawers will never fall apart, we designed them with metal drawer sides. The metal sides guarantee that the integrity of the drawer will never be compromised. Metal drawer sides also keep the drawer from sagging and losing alignment overtime as is common with wooden drawer sides.
Our heavy-duty 3mm edge banding not only protects the edges and corners of doors and drawers, but also adds a beautiful contrast to the cabinets. Though the black 3mm edge banding comes standard on all our TORC Garage Cabinets, a wide variety of colors are also available at a minimal charge. This is just one more way to customize your garage cabinets to make them uniquely yours.
Common Garage Cabinet Failures
- De-laminating – most garage cabinets are faced with a thermofused melamine. This is basically a process that uses heat to fuse a paper-like coating to a surface.
- Sagging doors – garages usually have larger cabinets than, say, your kitchen would. This means that you are dealing with much larger doors with much more weight. Problem is, most garage cabinets use some of the same light-weight hinges found on kitchen cabinets.
- Drawer failure – most garage cabinet drawers are built with inexpensive materials and held together by staples. The drawer sides separate overtime causing complete drawer failure
- Chipped and broken corners – garage cabinets take more abuse than standard cabinets, and most of that abuse is on the corners and edges of the doors and drawers. Most manufacturers use an inexpensive .017 mm edge banding to band the edges of doors and drawers. This edge banding carries no strength and is merely cosmetic.
