    New Product Release! Third Generation LifeDefender™ Updates are Designed With End-User's Needs In Mind.

    Posted by Rob Dell'Elmo on Dec 13, 2021 10:00:00 AM


    EMTs, paramedic’s and other critical care workers have an incredible responsibility and they’re often doing it while racing to the hospital and against the clock. They don’t have time to think about their own safety while caring for a patient. LifeDefender Cabinet Security Frames were developed with these dedicated workers and their patients in mind. The 3rd generation of this revolutionary product is the fruit of the feedback from ambulance manufacturers and their customers.

    Improved features in the 3rd generation updates include:

    - An optional key locking feature is now available pre-installed for both the fixed and restocker (a.k.a. "speed-load") frames. 

    - Tag brackets, an optional inventory control feature that can be pre-installed onto the frame, have been improved with more mounting options and soft, over-molded covers on exposed areas.  

    - The slider handles have been redesigned smaller while maintaining the same operation and latching function. The smaller size allows the slider to open further, providing an extra inch of access space when the slider is open. 

    - Hinges are now anodized aluminum to improve the appearance against the frame as well as cosmetic durability.
      
    - To more easily adjust a cabinet's latch clearance and door position, the hinge shims have been improved with all hole locations now slotted, allowing the shims to be added or removed between the hinge and cabinet without removing the hinge screws.  

    - Frames are now available with an optional pre-installed protective film on the outer frame. The film can remain on the frame without affecting the frame function.  

    - Fixed-frame LifeDefender units now include a new tether system to provide an extra connection between the cabinet and frame, which is especially helpful in wooden cabinets.  

    - Unframed LifeDefender doors (CW series) are now available with pre-engineered motion control options (gas springs or dampers) to move and hold the door in its open position.

    Posted by Rob Dell'Elmo on Nov 12, 2021 10:00:00 AM

    The ADS 7650 and AH 7600 series side mount drawer slides from Austin Hardware® are high-quality, heavy-duty slides representing two of the best drawer slide options available.

    Learn the Three Screw Types Most Often Seen in the Transportation and Metal Fabrication Industries.

    Posted by Rob Dell'Elmo on Oct 11, 2021 9:30:00 AM

    The number of different types of screws available today is dizzying. There are many types for virtually any application.  

    We’re not going to try to explain every different type here. We’re only going to look at the three we see used most often in the transportation and metal fabrication industries. 

    They include: 

    • - Type F Thread Cutting and Thread Forming Screws 
    • - Tek Screws 
    • - Self-Tapping Screws 
    •  

    Thread cutting screws alone are available in numerous styles. A thread cutting screw is defined by its sharp edges at the tip and a cutout line to clear cut material. The difference between the types may include the number of cutting edges, the shape of the clearing cutout, the spacing of the threads, among other physical properties that make each uniquely suited for specific applications.
