Whether you’re organizing a single office or assessing the needs of a new facility, storage is a constant. Efficient use of space and effective organization contribute to the success of any business. Fireproof file cabinets achieve both with a compact footprint optimized for volume. For sensitive materials, fireproof file cabinets also serve as an extra layer of security.
Vertical vs. Lateral Filing Cabinets
A vertical file cabinet is about 28″ deep, and is meant for front-to-back filing. The suspension on a vertical filing cabinet generally allows the drawer to be fully extended. A lateral file cabinet is generally about 20″ deep, and is usually wider than vertical files. The width of lateral files allow for front-to-back or (most often) side-to-side filing.
Legal vs. Letter Size File Cabinets
This distinction has to do with the size paper the file is meant for. Letter-size file cabinets are about 15″ wide, while legal-size files are approximately 18″ wide.
