KNAACK has expanded the Cart Armour line by designing heavy-duty secure storage, the Armoured Transport, for jobsite use.


KNAACK, a WernerCo Professional brand, has introduced its Armoured Transport that is built for maximum mobility and durability for any jobsite terrain. This new, heavy-duty security transport system on wheels is not a standard utility cart, the company added.

KNAACK said the Armoured Transport was designed for any professional that needs to easily transport, access, and secure their construction tools, equipment, and materials, no matter the stage of construction. 

“We set out to design something unique that really goes above and beyond the traditional utility cart that is often found on jobsites,” said Kevin Yeh, director of product marketing, secure storage at WernerCo. “The KNAACK Armoured Transport is a mobile and secure storage solution built specifically for the demands of the jobsite and the varied terrain contractors find themselves dealing with on a daily basis.”

Maximum Mobility and More Than a Traditional Utility Cart

The traditional utility cart, according to the company, is not built for the construction jobsite, but instead for smooth, finished surfaces in hotels, schools, and service industry locations. Utility carts work well on commercial carpet and finished tile floors but sometimes find their way onto jobsites because of a lack of better options, KNAACK said.

The KNAACK Armoured Transport was designed specifically for the jobsite. With its 8-inch rubberized wheels, it can easily tackle common obstacles like loose gravel, rebar, and electrical cords. These wheels are 60% larger in diameter and two times wider than what’s found on traditional utility carts.

The company said the wheels are also much stronger and smoother thanks to heavy-duty ball bearings, a beefy wheel frame, and an industrial-grade mounting plate. The taller height of the KNAACK Armoured Transport (KAT), combined with an ergonomic handle alleviates user fatigue, reduces back strain, and has a more elevated work platform on top, according to the company.

The Armored Transport has a payload rating of 750 pounds, which is 50% higher than traditional utility carts, according to KNAACK.

The KNAACK Armoured Transport assembles in less than 10 minutes including integrated 16-gauge steel panels with lockable doors.

Key Product Features of the KNAACK Armoured Transport

Product highlights, according to the company, include:

  • Jobsite Mobility: Large 8-inch non-marring, swivel wheels with a safety lock and an ergonomic handle to alleviate fatigue even when pushing or pulling maximum payloads means it is designed for all phases of construction.
  • Heavy-Duty and Durable for Jobsite Performance: It provides a 50% higher load rating than traditional utility for storing or moving heavy equipment across the worksite. Its tongue and groove assembly design helps make it a rock-solid system.
  • Enhanced Security: Fully integrated 16-gauge steel panels with full-frame lockable steel doors prevent jobsite theft and make it easier to transport tools and equipment.
  • Easy Assembly: Assembly takes less than 10 minutes, saving the user up to seventy percent in assembly time over previous solutions, thanks to reduced design complexity with only one type of hardware required to assemble.
  • Multi-Function Versatility: Integrated tray compartments for parts and hardware make it easy to stay organized and quickly find the tools and small parts needed at a glance. The electrical cord pass-through with included rubber grommets provide easy electrical access for power equipment recharging and computer or wi-fi bases. Pros can be connected to construction project needs like never before.
  • Elevated Work Platform: With a taller height than light-duty carts, it provides an elevated work platform to keep professionals in a more comfortable, upright position when using it as a work surface.
