Today I published several new storage boxes with the label section placed at a different side. So, it will allow you to use the same box size in a drawer but keep all label orientations the same.
The following two illustrations show the difference between the 1✕2 and 2✕1 size:
Both boxes have exactly the same dimensions and will fit into a 1×2 grid space. The only difference is the placement of the label area. All new boxes also have the ribs adjusted to provide the best stability in this new configuration.
New Regular Size Boxes
I added three new boxes to the regular sets for the most frequently used sizes.
- LR2052-121B – 2✕1 (120 ✕ 60 ✕ 44mm)
- LR2052-131B – 3✕1 (180 ✕ 60 ✕ 44mm)
- LR2052-132B – 3✕2 (180 ✕ 120 ✕ 44mm)
New Flat Size Boxes
In the flat size set, I only added the 2×1 box to the set. As this set is optimized for small parts, I found this the only useful addition. Let me know if I missed an important size/variant in this set.
- LR2052-221B – 2×1 (120 × 60 × 24mm)
New Tall Size Boxes
In the tall boxes set, I added the 2×1 and 3×2 boxes. Here, I omitted the 3×1 variant, because the label area gets into the way of the container opening. I found this already problematic with the 2×1 box, added it for completeness anyway.
- LR2052-321B – 2✕1 (120 ✕ 60 ✕ 84mm)
- LR2052-332A – 3✕2 (180 ✕ 120 ✕ 84mm)
All the new boxes are optimized for the new orientation and have the necessary rib adjustments for the best stability. You can find illustrations of each in the catalog.
