Storing File Boxes Correctly
Piling file boxes on the floor is not only risky for your business documents; it also affects your employee safety and available space. Even if the piles are nice and orderly, the boxes are heavy. Asking employees to bend and lift the boxes unnecessarily can put them at risk for injuries, and put your company at risk for workers’ compensation claims. Getting boxes up off the floor and stored properly protects your records from water and insects and keeps your boxes organized and employees happy. One of the best storage box systems is sliding box shelving. The sliding box shelving will use less floor space and organize your boxes for fast retrieval.
How the Sliding Box Shelving Uses Less Floor Space
Sliding box shelving is different than traditional static shelving. Even though it’s different, the way sliding shelving works is simple. Shelving is stacked in front of each other on tracks so that they can move back and forth. Because the front rows move, you get access to the back rows. These sliding box shelving systems condense the storage of file boxes to maximize floor space and keep boxes organized for fast easy retrieval.
How the Sliding Box Shelving Improves Organization
If you are wondering how to organize your boxes in the sliding shelving, it’s easy. Use the back row for things that almost never get used but that you have to keep around the office. Then, use the front row for boxes you access and need every day. For example, you could keep holiday decorations and the oldest archived files in the back rows, and your active file boxes in the front rows.
