Base cabinet rollout trays offer convenience, maximal storage capacity
Standard base cabinets produced by most manufacturers have one adjustable shelf at about the midway point. Combined with the cabinet floor, that provides two levels of storage.
To add some “bling” to your kitchen, any adjustable shelf can be replaced with a rollout tray. As you open the base cabinet door and pull out the sliding tray, everything at that level suddenly is within easy reach.
The photo on the left that is rated 1 carat features a standard mid-level rollout from Kabinart. Its sides, front and back are 2½ inches high.
You can install a single rollout tray at the bottom of a base cabinet, allowing the mid-level fixed shelf to remain, or you can install two adjustable rollout trays: one at the cabinet bottom, and one at the midway point. Either option provides better accessibility to stored items than does simply a shelf, whether fixed or adjustable.
Rollouts available in two heights
Now let’s compare a standard rollout with a deep rollout. Dura Supreme’s version of a standard rollout, shown at the photo on the right and rated 2 carats, has one top rollout that is 4 inches high above a deep rollout that is 8 inches high. The higher sides, front and back keep stackables such as bowls, pots and pans or plastic ware from tipping over or falling out.
Whether you choose the standard rollout or deep rollout, any existing base cabinet can be retrofit with rollouts.
