Ox Tools has announced their new ToolTrek modular tool box system.
The company describes their ToolTrek system as “a game-changer for the professional contractors on the job site.”
Ox Tools adds that their ToolTrek tool box system will be one of the first stackable tool storage systems with an IP66 waterproof and dustproof rating.
In an IP Code, the first number denotes a product’s solid particle rating, and the second denotes its liquid ingress protection rating.
Basically, the first number describes a product’s dust-proof rating, and the second describes its waterproof rating.
An IP65 rating means a tool box has been tested to withstand water jets projected from a 1/4″ nozzle at 4.4 psi, from any direction at a distance of 9.8 feet, and with a volume of 3.3 gallons per minute.
An IP66 rating means a tool box has been tested to withstand powerful water jets projected from a nearly 1/2″ nozzle at 15 psi, from any direction at a distance of 9.8 feet, and with a volume of 26.4 gallons per minute.
The next-higher waterproof rating would provide protection against immersion.
Ox Tools says that their ToolTrek tool boxes feature a reinforced rib design, with a load capacity of up to 100 kg (220 lbs).
Integrated threaded inserts on the sides allow for users to customize their ToolTrek tool boxes to their unique individual needs.
It’s not clear whether users are expected to craft their own attachments, or if Ox Tools has accessories planned and in the works.
Ox Tools has not yet made any announcements about their plans for the US market.
