  • Patent number: 9462884
    Abstract: A drawer system in which two integrated drawer systems are deployed, such that each said drawer system is equipped with two separate heavy duty runner systems, at opposed ninety degree, or other angle. Each drawer system with an intervening platform upon which the second set of runners is mounted, such that, as a result, each involved drawer is capable of both lateral and forward and backward movement, with the result that the forward movement, in example, of one drawer, can open a space for the lateral movement of the second drawer. The first drawer, having been moved forward, can now be moved laterally, while the second drawer can then be moved forward. The end result being that they both become simultaneously accessible to the operator, all with the result that previously unavailable or unreachable space is rendered readily accessible, as to the contents contained in the second drawer.
