Great Openings TRACE Freestanding Desks
Great Openings is the dealer sales division of Metalworks, Inc.,
located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Ludington, Michigan. Our
company has provided quality metal filing and storage products to the
office furniture industry for almost 30 years.
The Trace Freestanding Desks are a modular system of desk shells, returns, bridges, corner units, hutches, tables, and individual components that can be mixed and matched with a comprehensive selection of Great Openings storage. Great Openings is a proud recipient of the National Shingo Prize for operational excellence.
All Great Openings products include a lifetime warranty and meet ANSI-BIFMA standards for durability and safety. All components are shipped unassembled, with the exception of our full hutches and corner hutches, which are assembled prior to shipment.
- Ease of specification. All work surfaces rest primarily on panel and corner legs, rather than pedestals. Storage options are innumerable, and simply slide beneath the desk shells, return shells, and corner desks for quick installation
- Ease of assembly. All metal attachment points are pre-drilled, so that no –drill point” screws are required during installation. All modesty panels attach to panel legs and corner legs, rather than to pedestals
- Ease of work surface installation. Pre-drilled work surfaces make it easy to position legs, pedestals, and center drawers
- Wire management. Covered metal channels, work surface and panel leg grommets, and –place it yourself” plastic wire management channels provide a complete wire management solution
- Clean lines. All modesty panels are single piece, to minimize vertical lines. Desk legs, pedestals, and full height modesty panels are identical in height so that horizontal lines are consistent
- Horizontal lines consistent with other products. The Trace desk hutch matches the height of our 65 7/8” Trace lateral files, towers, and bookcases for consistent horizontal alignment throughout
