3 Drawer File Cabinets

SORT BY:
A 3-drawer file cabinet provides practical storage space for business records and household documents. These file cabinets include spacious lateral and vertical files, as well as pedestal-style models with both file and accessory drawers. They also come with a broad range of finishes to match a variety of home or office decor styles. Staples carries a complete selection of office supplies and storage products, including file cabinets from HON, Kimball Office and Sandusky.

3-Drawer File Cabinets Offer Versatile Storage
These products include vertical and lateral designs with space for letter and legal files, cabinets with a mix of drawer styles that store office supplies as well as documents, and models with both drawer and cabinet storage. Many have built-in rails that accommodate hanging files and fully extending drawers that provide easy access to stored documents. Ball-bearing slide mechanisms operate smoothly and provide solid support for fully loaded drawers, and counterweights built into the bases of some models prevent tipping.

Many cabinets have locks that secure sensitive data such as financial documents, personal information or tax records. Some models also have wheels, so you can reposition them as needed. Slide a pedestal file beneath a desk to conserve floor space in a small office, or use the top surface to extend a work area or as a printer stand.

A 3-Drawer File Cabinet Is an Attractive Storage Option
A variety of material and finish options makes it easy to find a filing solution that blends with your decor. Painted metal cabinets in neutral colors withstand the rigors of daily use in busy offices. Models with natural wood finishes are a welcome addition to a home office, while a file with a bright finish adds color to a child's bedroom study area.

Which Should You Choose, a Lateral or Vertical 3-Drawer File Cabinet?
Both these designs provide plenty of space for documents, and each style has its advantages. Vertical files have a smaller footprint, but require more open space in front to allow the drawers to extend fully. Lateral files are much wider than their vertical counterparts, but the drawers only extend 18 to 20 inches. While many lateral files accommodate both letter and legal-size pages, vertical files often hold only documents of one size.

How Big Are File Cabinets?
Because they're all designed to hold the same materials, most of these products have similar dimensions. Lateral files are about 30 to 42 inches wide, 20 inches deep and 40 inches tall. Vertical files are usually 15 to 18 inches wide, 22 to 29 inches deep and 40 inches tall. Pedestal files with a mix of drawer styles are smaller than dedicated filing products. Most are 15 to 18 inches wide, 20 inches deep and less than 30 inches tall, so they fit under a desk.

Documents, financial records, and tax return information are the lifeblood of any office, and a 3-drawer file cabinet keeps important information organized and secure. Vertical and lateral designs provide efficient storage and easy access to documents, and pedestal-style products combine file space with accessory drawers for office supplies. Find a storage solution to fit your workspace when you explore the file cabinets available at Staples.
