To ensure the smooth functioning of your office, it is important to have an efficient storage system. Storage systems such as filing cabinets are a practical and effective method of keeping your data well organised and accessible. Filing cabinets are attractive, as well as functional and help in improving the appearance of your office.

Before purchasing a filing cabinet, it is important to assess your filing requirements. Most businesses require files and having the right filing cabinet can make things easier for your employees. Once you know that you require a file cabinet or more for storing your files and other important documents, you should consider your storage requirements and avoid rushing into purchasing one.

Vertical filing cabinets
One of the most common types of filing cabinets that you can purchase is a vertical filing cabinet. The drawer depth of these cabinets, ranges from 15 inches to 28 inches. The vertical cabinet can have two to five drawers according to your filing needs. The drawers have the capacity to store various sizes of documents, such as legal, A4 or letter size.

Lateral filing cabinets

As these types of cabinets are wider than they are tall, they are suitable for offices that have ample floor space. They are ideal if your business has different sizes of paper documents to store and they offer more flexibility than vertical filing cabinets. Additionally, the lateral cabinets have bigger drawers than vertical cabinets.

The main function of a filing cabinet is to store and safeguard your important documents, files and other business related papers.
