Applications
Outback Solutions modules can be installed into any application providing sufficient space and anchorage is present. Unlike other roller drawer systems you are not limited to traditional roller drawer applications. Canopied / covered flat-beds, pickups, covered trailers, SUVs, vans, trucks, buses and sheds are just a few of the applications you might consider. Side floor kits are available for popular vehicles; however they are not mandatory fitment in any application.

Selection Guide
The selection guide will provide the best results for most customers. A specific side floor kit is available for all vehicles included in the guide. Using the guide you will select two lower modules, optional stacker drawer modules and consider accessories. Fitting times are included in the guide. Unless otherwise stated any module can be fitted to either the left hand or right hand side.

Building a Custom Roller Drawer System
When handling a vehicle application or combination not listed in the selection guide, you will need to design a custom roller drawer system. This requires care, but allows you to create a unique solution for your customer. When selecting modules, carefully consider the length, width, height and the compatibility of the modules you intend putting together. Fitting time will be dependent on the complexity of installation. Allow 1.5 hours per module with good access to the under floor, allow additional time if vehicle components require removal and refit. Be particularly aware of fuel tank location.

The Process

Measure the area available for installation, width, length and height
Evaluate the vehicles floor for suitability of mounting, including potential bolt locations and accessibility to the underside floor
