  • The challenge was to create a versatile vehicle storage solution addressing modularity, adaptability, security and weather resistance limitations in traditional systems. Ensuring user-friendliness, safety, and efficient organisation across sectors, the KUFU Drawer System needed to consider swift installation, robust design, compliance with safety regulations, integrated lighting, utilitarian aesthetics, and a premium feel. Additionally, the system required a simple assembly process, durable materials, and easy-to-assemble panels, while meeting Australian ADR requirements.

  • The KUFU Drawer System presents innovative solutions, addressing the design brief and catering to diverse applications and user requirements. Offering size flexibility, a robust triple-slide design, and low-profile incremental latching mechanisms, it showcases market-leading storage volume optimization - a testament to quality design and engineering. Overcoming material and manufacturing challenges, the system combines compression molding and a robust composite construction through a meticulously engineered tooling regime by the D+I team. Boasting all-weather sealing, versatile LED lighting, anti-slip surfaces, and a 1-tonne load rating, it effectively resolves initial challenges and satisfies users' needs.

  • The KUFU Drawer System's innovative design offers significant commercial, environmental, and societal benefits. By catering to diverse industries, it has the potential to increase market share, sales, and customer loyalty, while the modular and robust design promotes resource efficiency.
