ROTAS™ by Lazy Lee®
Designer/inventor Lee Goldsticker sought a better mechanism to propel his innovative, space-saving closet storage furnishings. The device he originally invented for this task was made of metal and required a stabilising pin. Lee wanted a device that was impervious to heat, cold, and moisture, offered substantial weight load tolerance, and was maintenance-free. In his search for that perfect material, he contacted colleagues at DuPont who encouraged him to experiment with Corian—a product, they assured him, met all of his design and performance criteria. Not long after that marriage of creative ingenuity and perfect material, production of the ROTAS™ by Lazy Lee® began.
What is the ROTAS™?
The ROTAS™ is a freely rotating bearing device made out of Corian, a DuPont patented product/material. Essentially a high density plastic that can withstand immense pressure, heat, cold, and other harsh conditions.
What does a ROTAS™ system look like?
ROTAS™ systems simply look like a plastic ball bearing, comprised of two plastic tracks with slight grooves, and perfectly spherical balls that fit inside/between the tracks.
What is the weight load tolerance of ROTAS™?
ROTAS™ systems are certified and tested to successfully operate under more than 4,300 kilograms (9,500 pounds) of pressure without any loss of performance.
What are the advantages of the ROTAS™ vs. other mechanical rotational devices?
ROTAS™ technology offers a number of advantages in comparison to its competitors, such as: -self-stabilising design -impervious to heat, cold, water, extreme pressure, and other harsh conditions -no lubrication needed -maintenance free -lifetime warranty
Can I purchase ROTAS™ systems separately?
No, ROTAS™ systems are not for sale.
We have integrated the ROTAS™ to spin a wardrobe for shoes, clothing, bags, and more. By fixing the ROTAS™ to the bottom of the wardrobe, it allows the almost 180kg wardrobe to spin effortlessly with the touch of a finger, and without any lubricant.
How does it work? Two Corian plastic tracks which hold a number of Corian balls perfectly placed and fitted to distribute the weight of the entire wardrobe unit, and allow for an effortless spin.
ROTAS™ systems utilise an elegant design, and holds beautiful pieces of furniture that can be very easily placed in any area of the house, office, or commercial environment. The personalisation and customisation options for this rotating device are as endless as its potential applications. For individual applications, the ROTAS™ comes in device-only packages. As mentioned above, the ROTAS™ does not require lubricant.
Some applications that ROTAS™ systems could be used for are:
- Wardrobe systems
- Kitchen islands, bars, pantries, and other cabinetry
- Garage floor platforms
- Amenities in hotel rooms
- Amenities in cruise liners
- …much more!
