Classification folder design
Traditional file folders have a back and cover that hold papers inside. Pressboard classification folders have extra features that provide more use. They are usually legal (8.5 inches by 14 inches) or letter (8.5 inches by 11 inches) size to fit the most commonly used types of paper. Each folder may contain up to three partitions that allow users to separate pages into different sections and include tabs to make it easy to label each section. Also, the files include up to eight fasteners on the cover and partitions that will hold the papers in place so they don’t fall out when opening the folder.
Pressboard classification folder material
Classification files are available in a few different materials. The most common is 11 to 17 point manila cardstock folders. Point measurement refers to paper thickness, as measured in millimeters. Paper is also measured by weight -- 11 to 17 point card stock is the equivalent of 72 to 105 pounds. The files are thick enough to prevent folding the pages inside, but thin enough to store in expanding folders, binders or plastic file storage boxes without taking up too much space. It is also possible to purchase classification folders in 25 point (.024 inches thick) pressboard, which is extra sturdy for papers that get a lot of use.
