Storage Johannesburg: Keep Those Tools Protected
It is vital when storing power tools to protect them from moisture, dust and other potential damage. Self storage units can really help achieve this.
To protect against moisture, make sure to keep the tools elevated and off the ground. Moisture can collect on the floor, and ultimately, it will cause your tools to rust. It also creates clutter, which is what we’re trying to avoid. Instead, invest in shelves or storage units.
For dust, throw a plastic cover over your electronic tools. Dust will damage motors and attach to lubricants. Ultimately causing the device to stop working. Hard cases or drawers will also help protect against dust. Plastic bins can also be used, but stay away from cardboard boxes. They can be destroyed by moisture and will be ineffective. The plastic in the hard case will also prevent other damage. It will allow you to store cords and batteries as well. To maximize that storage space, remember to line the walls with shelving.
Storage Johannesburg: Climate Controlled Options
With cordless tool storage, you may want to consider the climate in which you’ll be storing. Cordless tools usually require a battery. And most rechargeable batteries are best stored in temperatures around 15 degrees celsius. Depending on your batteries of course, the temperature requirement may vary. Most cannot handle either temp extremes. Climate control can be a very useful option in this scenario. These storage units, although a little more pricey, ensure that your unit is kept at stable temperatures.
