File Cabinets

File cabinets offer a convenient way to store important files and paperwork to minimize desk clutter. Staples carries vertical, lateral, flat and rolling models that will help most offices organize documents, plans and client information.

What to Consider When Choosing File Cabinets
Before choosing a particular type of office desk or cabinet, users need to consider the files types that require storage. Some files, such as drawings and plans need units that let users store them flat or rolled for added protection. Users need to consider how much wall space is available. Keep in mind that large, deep cabinets require additional floor space to ensure there is enough room to open each drawer fully. Models that are on wheels let users take them from one location to another. Compact designs provide convenient access right under a desk or table without sacrificing valuable floor space in smaller offices.

What are the Differences Between the Models?
Cabinets for files come in vertical, lateral, flat and upright designs. Vertical models have a single row of drawers stacked on top of each other. Lateral cabinets have two or more drawers that each has multiple compartments to maximize storage. Vertical cabinets are available with two or more drawers. The compartment design of lateral file cabinets lets users make use of wall space without requiring extensive room for accessing the entire drawer. Tall, vertical cabinets need less floor space but do require more room to open the deeper drawers.

Flat filing cabinets let users store folders or large blueprints. These models hold the files flat rather than in an up and down configuration, and each one has five or more thinner drawers. Upright cabinets feature individual slots for rolled files such as floor plans and drawings. Consider this type of unit for holding files that are frequently accessed.

Colors and Designs That Work with Most Offices
Cabinets are available in wood and metal in different color choices to increase versatility. Metal options include beige, black, silver and chrome, ensuring a good match with most decor. Wood models come in a range of color choices, including cherry, mahogany, espresso, dark and light wood. Wood cabinets give any space a decorative touch, making them ideal for professional and traditional offices. A file cabinet in burgundy, blue, green or charcoal fits well in contemporary spaces and adds visual interest to the room. Simple steel models match any decor and offer a clean, appealing finish.

What Safety Features are Available?
Filing cabinets are available with additional safety features that increase security. Locking models keep confidential files and documents safe from unauthorized personnel. These models use a single lock to secure each drawer, making it simple to give out keys to select individuals. Fire-resistant cabinets are ideal for storing important documents and plans. A fire-resistant file cabinet protects the contents from flames for up to one hour, providing optimal time for responders to clear the area. Cabinets that resist fire are also a good choice for storing valuables and irreplaceable documents for added protection in emergency situations.
