About Filing Cabinets
Talk to any thought leader, self-help guru or business expert and they’ll all tell you that organisation is key to success. But with the amount of paperwork generated in today’s bureaucratic society, you’ve got your work cut out for you if you want to keep on top of it all - that’s why you should purchase a filing cabinet or two from this category!
Filing cabinet sizes & shapes
Most of our filing cabinet range is devoted to small filing cabinets for personal use. No larger than a side table, these squat, square filing cabinets are perfect for your home office. Keep these small office organisers next to your desk and they’ll never get in the way.
Some of the filing cabinets you’ll find here are much larger. Some are the size of a bookcase, while some are even bigger than that! These jumbo sized filing cabinets are perfect for workplaces that need to keep tons of documents organised. If you’re buying for a business you’ll definitely want to choose one of these stellar filing cabinets.
Also of interest to businesses will be our line-up of lateral filing cabinets. Most filing cabinets are taller than they are wide, minimising their floor space for practical storage in most offices. Lateral filing cabinets take this design and flip it. They’re very wide, which is useful for storing big documents that don’t take well to being folded up, like blueprints and technical drawings.
Filing cabinet features
Once you’ve decided on the most appropriate filing cabinet size and shape, it’s time to look at filing cabinet features to figure out which model is the best! Almost all of our personal filing cabinets come with a set of suspension files. These little cardboard sleeves allow you to divide up your documents into different categories, further aiding your organisational quest! Some of the larger filing cabinets in this selection trade suspension files for separate drawers - same organisational opportunity, just on a different scale!
Now let’s think about security. If you’re keeping all of your vital files in one place you need reassurance that they’re safe, and almost all the filing cabinets here have some kind of locking mechanism built in. In most cases that’s a single key that unlocks the whole cabinet, but many of the large, multi-drawer cabinets have separate keys for each section, which lets you give partial access to employees. Other filing cabinets have more sophisticated security devices, like electronic locks or padlocks.
Other than theft, your documents are also at risk of going up in a blaze. Fire is always a possibility so it might be worth investing in fireproof filing cabinets. These insulated cabinets give your documents a temporary layer of protection if a fire breaks out, enough time for the emergency services to arrive and put out the conflagration.
