LAS VEGAS - Continuing its mission to help consumers get organized in style, Gladiator® brand today revealed new products and concepts to help both the do-it-yourself and do-it-for-me customer at the 2012 National Hardware Show. Highlights include a second-generation model of the popular Chillerator® garage refrigerator, Storage Bench and Rack Shelving.

"Over the years, we've learned that consumers want help with organization in every room of the house," said Tim Keaton, head of marketing, brand and product, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "The enhanced product offerings make Gladiator brand versatile enough for everyday spaces like the garage or basement and even shared decorated spaces like the office or living room."

One such product is the Gladiator Storage Bench (MSRP $279) which is up for the New Product Award at this year's National Hardware Show. Built with a sturdy bamboo top and a heavy-duty steel frame, it is designed for flexibility. The Storage Bench is the perfect place to sit and take your shoes off in the mudroom or makes a stylish entertainment center in the living room. The dual bypass doors slide open to reveal plenty of space to store shoes or a variety of household items.

For bigger items, consumers can turn to Gladiator Rack Shelving (MSRP $199). The unit measures 77 inch wide, 72 inch high, and 24 inch deep, providing a heavy-duty load capacity of 2,000 pounds per shelf perfect for storing heavier items like tires, fertilizer, bulk food or luggage. Practical and easy to assemble, the Gladiator® Rack Shelving can fit in the garage, basement or large closet.

On the appliance side, Gladiator brand is launching a newly designed Chillerator® Garage Refrigerator (MSRP $1,299) with a stainless steel finish for a sleek, bold look. Engineered by appliance leader Whirlpool Corporation, the ENERGY STAR® qualified unit eliminates condensation during the summer and prevents freezing in the winter months, while using less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.

In addition to the Chillerator garage refrigerator, Gladiator brand is providing a sneak peek at the Freezerator and modular refrigerator with a kegerator or bamboo top option, creating new ways to store food and beverages. Other concept products on display include Jumbo XL Cabinets with sliding bamboo doors. Gladiator brand will also be showcasing the office suite concept in a new Everest White color palette. Product availability and pricing will be announced later this year.
