Gliding file cabinets, also known as glider filing cabinets and glide shelving on rails, will save a significant amount of floor space compared to traditional file cabinets and static open shelf file shelving. Gliding filing cabinet systems are file cabinets or shelves mounted on gliding/rolling platforms that glide back and forth on tracks to create a movable access aisle. The gliding file shelving compacts together, reducing your file storage area by about 50%. The glide file cabinets and glider shelving lets you to centralize your file storage area. By doing this, you can increase productivity because employees no longer have to wander around the office searching for files stored in different areas (view photos of gliding file track systems).

Environmentally Friendly Glider Filing Cabinets Provide a Quick Return On Investment (ROI)

Gliding filing systems allow you to make a quick return on your investment. Because the cabinets require less floor space, you will be able to build smaller more energy-efficient buildings or lease less office space, which will reduce your operating costs. Your facility will be more green-friendly by implementing a space-saving glider filing cabinet system in your office.
