Open Shelf Files(7 Products)
Open shelf files types
There are several designs to look at when choosing an open file shelf. Some are single-unit options with multiple shelves already attached together for hassle-free storage. Stackable units allow users to start small and build up to bigger models when necessary. Others have adjustable shelving that usually moves in 0.5-inch increments to fit a wide variety of file folder sizes. If you are storing x-rays in these stacked units, then consider an open storage system designed specifically to hold x-rays.
Double view cabinets allow users to look for documents from both sides of the furniture, giving more room for employees to find information. For small areas, consider pivot wall racks that attach to the wall instead of needing a whole unit. Enclosed cabinets have doors that not only keep private information safe but also protect paper from dirt and sunlight.

A posting shelf pulls out or folds down from the cabinet to provide an area to peruse files or make notes without having to move to a table. With track systems, users can move heavy units back and forth across a room and they allow for installation of several systems close together for maximum space usage. Extra dividers make the storage products sturdier for holding more weight. Spacers rest on shelves to help make differently sized folders fit, which is an especially helpful feature when certain models are not adjustable.
