If you want to organize your drawers and easily move their contents around, Rousseau has a ready-made compartmentalization system using plastic bins. The bins are designed for 3" and 4" high drawers only.

This article focuses on two compartmentalization possibilities with a section dedicated to each of these options.

Option 1 – Preconfigured drawers to get up and running quickly
Option 2 – Personalization for more control

Whichever compartmentalization option you choose, you need to determine the size of your R or L drawers. At Rousseau we use the nominal size of the drawers as a reference.

R drawers

To find the nominal width and depth of your R drawer, measure the interior dimensions and refer to the table below. The dimensions in blue correspond to the nominal width and depth of your drawer. Use these dimensions at all times.

Interior depth Interior width
14" 20" 26" 32" 38" 44" 50" 56"
15" n/a n/a 30"W x 18"D 36"W x 18"D 42"W x 18"D 48"W x 18"D n/a n/a
18" n/a 24"W x 21"D 30"W x 21"D n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
21" 18"W x 24"D 24"W x 24"D 30"W x 24"D 36"W x 24"D 42"W x 24"D 48"W x 24"D 54"W x 24"D 60"W x 24"D
24" 18"W x 27"D 24"W x 27"D 30"W x 27"D 36"W x 27"D 42"W x 27"D 48"W x 27"D 54"W x 27"D 60"W x 27"D

Have you noted down your measurements? If so, refer to the section corresponding to which compartmentalization option you have chosen.

L drawers

To find the nominal width and depth of your L drawer, measure the interior dimensions and refer to the table below. The dimensions in green correspond to the nominal width and depth of your drawer. Use these dimensions at all times.

Interior Depth Interior Width
14"
18" 18"W x 21"D
24" 18"W x 27"D

Have you noted down your measurements? If so, refer to the section corresponding to which compartmentalization option you have chosen.

Note that both L and R drawers are compartmentalized in the same way.

 

Option 1 – Preconfigured drawers to get up and running quickly

Take a look at the configuration options on this page: www.rousseaumetal.com/plastic-bins-compartments. After selecting the nominal dimensions of your drawer, you will see the compartmentalization options available to you. You then just have to choose the desired configuration and specify the height of the drawer. To immediately request a quote, just click "Request a quote." 

Example:

Compartmentalization Order

The red box shows the product code. The green box shows the drop-down list where you select the height of your drawer (3" or 4").

Note: If you do not immediately request a quote and just want to note down the code for later use, you must complete the code manually. For example, the code R00BE-E0210__ in the example above would become R00BE-E021003 for 3" high drawers.

 

Option 2 – Personalization for more control

You can also create your own configuration with individual plastic bins. As with option 1, you need to determine the size of your drawers.

Once you have found the right dimensions, you can create your drawer compartments. Our help to compartmentalize document for R drawers and our help to compartmentalize document for L drawers contain empty drawer graphics for each dimension to help you.

Here are the sizes and codes for the plastic bins available. Note that certain bin sizes can be divided further using plastic dividers/partitions.

Dissipative plastic bins are also available. These can be compartmentalized in the same way as regular plastic bins. However, the product codes are different. These can be found in the table below.
