Lever Arch Files
Lever arch files are an essential part of any office and are normally used to file documents and papers that require quick and easy access. The key benefit of using lever arch files is their large paper holding capacity when compared with alternatives such as ring binders.

We supply high quality products from the biggest brands in filing and office organisation such as Rexel, Leitz, Elba and Concord.

The lever arch system is particularly useful for holding larger amounts of paper as the metal prong size is greater than a standard ring binder. A standard A4 lever arch file can hold around 300 sheets of paper (a ring binder holds about 100). The unique mechanism in the file is the locking action which holds the documents in place. The lever in the file is used to open and close the metal prongs. This makes the file easier to handle so there is no need pull the binder apart and risk damaging documents.
Available in four different sizes: A3, A4, A5 and Foolscap. The Foolscap size is slightly larger than A4 and means that A4 dividers and indexes don’t stick out beyond the file. The A3 and A5 files are available in both portrait and landscape formats which allows for the storage of a wide range of documents.
The wide selection of different colours available in the Office Allsorts range will enable you to identify file contents or select a colour to match your company branding.
