Marine Carpet Upholstery
Mounting baseboard, Top deck, side storage compartments & drawer fronts are all made using lightweight waterproof structural plywood, upholstered with marine carpet.
Marine Carpet Drawer Liners
The galvanised steel drawers are fitted with a "formed' marine carpet liner which is fully removable & is held in place with a decorative retaining strip. If you encounter a spill in the drawer, it is an easy matter of removing the liner, giving it a wash, let dry & simply refit. Good as new!

Steel Ball Bearing Slides
The drawer unit is fitted with heavy duty self-contained, over extension ball bearing slides. He slides have a smooth easy action & are almost silent in operation.
One of the significant design features of this type of slide is that it enables the entire drawer to extend from the drawer housing. Unlike most of the other systems available whereby a good portion of the drawer is retained within the drawer housing, our system allows you to access all of the contents of the drawer without having to unpack part of the drawer to get to items in the back of the drawer.

Anti Rattle Drawer Retainers
Each drawer slide has its own rubber "keeper" which engages when the drawer is returned to its home position. This "Keeper" plays 2 roles, firstly to shock absorb the return of the drawer & secondly to secure the runner in its rest position to prevent the possibility of any rattle.

Keyed Alike Locks
The heavy-duty locks used have a 9mm coated steel bolt & alloy body, once again chosen for strength & long term life. The locks fitted to the drawers of any one car are keyed alike so only one key is necessary for both (or all) drawers. All keys are numbered & back up keys are kept in stock in the vent of replacements being necessary.

There are no boltheads, no hinge knuckles, no screw heads, no checker plate, no obstructions of any kind on the top deck to scratch or imprint on anything you load into the car during its day to day operation.

Side Storage Compartments
Each drawer system is specifically designed to suit to particular vehicle and in most cases there is an area on each side of drawer system behind the wheel arches that needs to be accessed for various reasons such as vehicle jack & or tool kit access. The drawer system incorporates removable side panels on either side of the top deck in order to access these compartments as well as providing valuable additional storage compartments.

Quality Construction
The OffRoad Systems Storage Drawer System is manufactured using ultra modern CNC (computerised) equipment. This type of manufacturing process enables us to achieve a level of "Build" quality that is second to none. Dimensioning, alignment, design & fit are all controlled to extremely fine tolerances to ensure the very best finished product. The drawers when fitted have no gaps around the drawer fronts & the outer framework of the drawer system is sealed so dust entry is eliminated from the drawers themselves when closed.

Installs Using Existing Anchor Points
Most modern 4WD vehicles are equipped with at least 4 tie down anchor point in the rear cargo area. These points are pre determined to be load bearing & it is these points that are utilised to mount the drawer system. The mounting baseboard has pre drilled location holes that align with the tie down anchor points of each vehicle model. This enables the drawer system to be fitted with machine thread bolts for security, without the need for any new holes in the vehicle bodywork.

Fully & Easily Removed
The installation of the OffRoad Systems Storage Drawers has been designed such that removal when required is a relatively easy & straightforward process. The full unit can be partially dismantled & fully removed in less than 1 hour by any competent handyperson with a very basic tool kit (usually only 1 or 2 spanners) & re-installed in about the same time.
