The Lateral Filing system is designed for high density filing in cupboards such as Bisley. Lateral files have front or side access enabling more than one person to use them simultaneously. As with suspension files they come in two main types, those being V-Base and Square Base. Square base lateral files accommodate more paper as the bottom of the file expands into a flat surface.
If you would like any help selecting your lateral filing products then please call the Office Allsorts team on 0115 9455833 for assistance.
Office Allsorts stock a wide range of lateral filing products to suit many different paper storage requirements, the below guide will take you through the main features to look for.
- Colour Choice - Many colours are available so that you can colour code your filing system to aid in organisation which facilitate quicker identification and speed of retrieval.
- Cupboard Compatibility - Most filing chassis within cupboards are adjustable so the majority or lateral files will be compatible. However, if you already have an existing filing system, ensure that you buy the correct size. Measure an existing file from centre to centre of the runner hooks, then purchase files of the same size.
- Durability - Depending on how much you use your filing system you can choose between manilla files or the more durable polypropylene.
- Filing Capacity - Standard 15mm capacity lateral files will suffice for normal amounts of filing. However, extra capacity files are available for higher volume usage.
