Slim high density lateral file storage offers more capacity
Offering a total of eight tiers of shelving space, slim high density lateral file storage gives you between 18 and 21 percent more capacity than what is typically available with traditional lateral file drawer units. The amount of additional space produced by small space side-by-side filing cabinets depends on what design configuration you choose, of course. More space per shelf is easily accommodated for, however, because slim high density lateral file storage is available in an 48-inch width. It is a size not available for lateral files.
A comparison between the largest traditional lateral file drawer and small space side-by-side filing cabinets is offered to further demonstrate the difference in capacity. A traditional five drawer lateral filing cabinet, measuring 42-inches wide, holds 195 lineal inches. In comparison, an eight-tier slim high density lateral file storage unit, that measures 48-inches wide, stores 173 inches more for an 88 percent increase in capacity. Investing in slim high density lateral file storage is just one way to get the capacity you need for storing different sized media and file folders. (See mobile lateral filing cabinets that move on tracks) They save space and can be expanded to accommodate for added storage capacity.
Small space side-by-side filing cabinets save space
Small space side-by-side filing cabinets are also more efficient than traditional lateral file storage systems when comparing the amount of floorspace each takes up. When matched up, the slim high density lateral file storage accommodated more material per shelf using almost a quarter less of the floorspace required by a traditional system of the same width. This proves it to be the more accommodating option, if you're looking to save space.
Flexible slim high density lateral file storage
Slim high density lateral file storage is ideal for small and medium-sized collections. However, it is flexible enough to accommodate any combination of media. This includes catalogs, magnetic or optical media and file folders, just to name a few. Its interior accessories and components can be adjusted or adapted to accommodate change. A sampling of available components include a rollout shelf for easy access to binders and media of various heights and a media drawer for storing assorted media. A double-wall door allows for its interior storage space to be maximized with a top-mounted installation, while the use of waist-high rail helps facilitate easy operation of the small space side-by-side filing cabinets. Standard bottom mounted or waist-high locking options are also available for added protection and secure access. Contemporary storage systems such as pull-out retractable wall storage shelving units are also a great alternative to small space side-by-side filing cabinets. (Watch video)
