Types of Filing Cabinets

If you need to organize your workspace, file cabinets can provide much-needed storage space for the papers and files that accumulate on your desk. They are available in many sizes and can be used for a variety of purposes.  

Lateral File Cabinets

It is common to refer to horizontal file cabinets as lateral files because they provide a filing system that is wide enough to accept both letter- and legal-sized documents. If you're looking for something that holds both sizes of paper, then this file cabinet option is perfect for you. You can find lateral file cabinets in a wide variety of styles, colors, and finishes, including wood, laminate, veneer, and metal.


Vertical File Cabinets

File cabinets that are vertical are a great way to store files without taking up too much floor space. A variety of materials and styles are available for these compact file storage options, including wood veneer, laminate, metal, and solid wood.


Mobile File Cabinets

Because casters allow you to easily transport them from room to room, mobile file cabinets make excellent under-desk filing cabinets and portable file systems.

Fireproof File Storage Cabinets

For those who need a safe place to store large documents like blueprints, artwork, drawings, or maps, fireproof file storage cabinets are the perfect solution.
