When picking out storage units for your garage, choose metal garage cabinets to store all of your potentially dangerous tools and materials. Metal is durable and if installed properly impossible to break into. All you have to do is purchase a lock for your cabinets and if they are metal, there is no getting into them.
If there will be any children in and around your workspace, you want to make sure that you lock up all dangerous tools and potentially harmful materials when you are not using them. Saws, blowtorches, paint thinners and other chemicals should all be kept under lock and key. With metal garage cabinets, you are guaranteeing that curious kids will not be able to hurt themselves.
If you don't keep your garage under lock and key, you should definitely keep expensive tools and materials locked away. It only takes a few seconds for someone to wander into your garage and steal an expensive saw or ratchet set. And locking up tools in metal garage cabinets will ensure that, unlike locking things up in wooden or plastic cabinets, there will be no way for someone to break in.
