Black File Cabinets

Filing cabinets are useful tools in a home or office setting. They come in various sizes with a vertical or lateral orientation to fit standard and legal-size files and documents. Choose a small portable unit for the home office to store and track household bills or home business expenses, or a larger multiple-drawer unit to serve corporations and busy offices. In addition to their own brand, Staples carries black file cabinets from top companies including Calico Designs, FireKing and HON.

Built-In Features for Varying Needs
With ball-bearing slides, you can extend and close the drawers smoothly with recessed or hardware handles in a range of styles. Smaller drawers are ideal for keeping office supplies neat, such as writing utensils and notepads. For added durability, consider a model with a double-walled base that can stand up to constant use throughout the years.

Wheels for Enhanced Mobility
Some black file cabinets have wheels that make them easy to push between locations, creating a portable storage solution. Those with swivel casters offer 360-degree maneuverability, so you can seamlessly push them across various types of flooring including carpeting, tile and hardwood. Select units have five wheels instead of four, to offer additional stability and prevent them from tipping over. Cabinets without wheels often have a flat bottom, though some come with legs or self-leveling mechanisms to balance out uneven surfaces.

Varying Designs for Versatility
Filing cabinets have between 2 and 10 drawers, with models available for businesses of any size. High sides are ideal for oversized documents, and most units fit legal and standard-size papers. Adjustable wire makes it easy to add hanging files in the drawers for more streamlined organization and label holders let you identify the contents in each unit.

Those with a flat-file design are widely used in the architecture and art industry for renderings a work well in government offices to store old maps and real estate documents that track boundary and property lines for tax and building purposes. Lateral cabinets often have a top storage unit that lifts up to open so that you can keep copy paper or specific forms on hand.

Security Features for Added Protection
Many cabinets come with a locking mechanism that lets users protect sensitive documents such as medical or accounting files, contracts and payroll records. Most have a single lock and key mechanism that secures all of the drawers at once, though select units have a lock on each drawer. If you handle sensitive documents and files, consider a black file cabinet with a high-security lock that resists theft attempts through drilling or attempted lock picking. Others have a safety feature that only allows one drawer to open at a time, locking the others in place until it's closed.

Brands like FireKing create units that can withstand extreme temperatures and explosions, keeping the contents secure through up to 1700 degrees for an hour. Each model comes with a UL rating that identifies its resistance to fire, water and impact.
