The humble office filer scarcely attracts very much thought in our busy offices but a quality filing cabinet should give years of problem free service. Despite having the existing trend towards the paperless office, filing cabinets are still extensively used as the inescapable fact is that a lot of offices still produce large levels of written documentation and paperwork that should be filed away.

Filing cabinets are usually made of either steel or wood. Of both common materials used, metal filing cabinets are lighter, stronger, more durable and usually are given a manufacturers guarantee of between 5 and 15 years based on the quality of the filing cabinet supplied. Wooden filing cabinets are often very durable but tend to be supplied with a guarantee of between 1 and 5 years.

Filing cabinets are made to store tab files that hold on runners inside each filing drawer. One key design option to look out for when choosing a filing cabinet is full drawer extension. Basically this is where the filing drawers can be pulled out 100% so that the files located at the very back of the drawer are able to be easily accessed with no need to reach back to the cabinet to get the required files.

Another important requirement is the anti tilt device which operates by stopping several drawer being opened simultaneously because the weight of drawers filled with files could easily cause a cabinet to fall over. Files should be loaded into the bottom drawers of the filing cabinet first to aid with stability of the cabinet.

There are two common sizes of suspension file in Europe, foolscap and A4. Foolscap is by far the most commonly used size used in Britain and Ireland, whereas A4 is the most popular size in continental Europe. The runners that support the suspension files are usually built into the very best of the drawer sides in a standard filing cabinet therefore the suspension files are usually made to run from front to back.

Some filing cabinets include conversion fittings to allow either foolscap or A4 sizes to be stored. Users must remember that the drawer bases in filing cabinets (and particularly in wooden filing cabinets) are not generally made to support great weight so the filing cabinets should not be used as normal drawers.

Another popular type of filing cabinet may be the lateral filer that is just a supplementary wide filing cabinet where the suspension files are most commonly designed to run laterally rather than front to back. The choice unit for storing suspension files is tambour system storage units with either a wooden or steel carcass which were supplied with grab suspension file frames.

European business furniture manufacturers offer an extensive range of tambour storage cupboards having an excellent range of internal filing fitments. This design is far more popular in continental Europe. Grab suspension filing units mainly accept A4 suspension files as standard, though often could be adapted to store foolscap suspension files.

Bisley filing cabinets are without doubt the leading brand for metal filing cabinets and their flagship BS range of cabinets were created with durability in mind and are usually supplied with a 10 or 15 year manufacturers warranty. The BS series features fully welded construction with twin skin drawer fronts.

Drawers are fitted onto roller ball bearing slides which deliver extra-smooth action and 100% extension. The Bisley BS range includes five, four, three and two drawer versions all of which accept either foolscap or A4 suspension files. The BS4E four drawer filing cabinet gives 2.2 metres of filing storage.
