With files stored at a 55° angle, users can quickly see and read folder labels so they can find and store what they need faster. This increased visibility also leads to more accurate filing and less time spent trying to find misfiled folders. And when combined with end tab and color coded filing, users can access folders with just a glance. The slanted file shelving is also designed to store the most amount of file folders conveniently in a small amount of space.

If you need a different size, you can also purchase individual modules for 4-tier and 5-tier shelving. There is no need to purchase separate dividers, as each unit has welded dividers included to keep files upright.

The slanted shelving is designed for use with color coded filing, side tab folders, and end tab filing. Their versatility and visibility makes them perfect for healthcare facilities and business offices.

Locking Roll-Down Security Doors for Steel & Wood Shelving

Security Doors for Shelving

locking roll-down security doors for shelvingSecurity is an important part of a large amount of industries. The HIPAA Compliant Act requires physical safeguards of personal health information and medical records, and individual files containing personal or otherwise sensitive information can be found in every other type of business. Locking roll-down security doors can be installed on almost any type of steel and wood shelving units, or even on counter and door openings.

Hinged security doors are designed so they have to swing out into the aisle, which only takes up more valuable space that could be used for something else. The roll-down security doors are unique in that they’re mounted to the top of your shelving and simply roll up and down without the need for extra space in front. This allows you to stack additional boxes or desks in front of the shelving without having to move anything to access stored contents like you would with hinged security doors.

The security doors are available as front-mount or top-mount, the sizes and specifications of which are as follows:

Top Mount and Front Mount Door Box Dimensions Door Height Door Storage Box Dimensions 48″ to 70″ 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″* 70-1/8″ to 120″ 8-1/16″ x 8-1/16″* 120-1/8″ to 124″ 10-1/8″ x 10-1/8″* * Notes:
  1. Top mount door storage boxes add to the overall height of the shelving (84″ high shelving + 8-1/16″ door box = 92-1/16″ overall height).
  2. Front mount door storage boxes add to the overall depth of the siding (84″ high x 18″ deep shelving uses 8-1/16″ door boxes making the depth of the shelving with door box 26-1/16″).

Additional Featuresfront mount rolling security doors

  • Available in manual operation with key lock or motorized remote control operation

How to Organize Your Paper Filing System

Start with Categories & Oblique Hanging Compartments

oblique compartments organize paper filing systemAn article from The Wall Street Journal states, “The average U.S. executive wastes six weeks per year searching for missing information in messy desks and files.” Organizing paperwork is essential for your business; especially when employees are spending more time looking for information when they could be doing something that generates revenue. A quick and easy solution for organizing your paper filing system is to group items by category. And to implement this system, all you need is oblique hanging compartments.

Decide Which Categories You Want for Your Paper Filing System

The first step is to decide on the categories you want to use. For example, a small business might want to categorize their filing system by department (ex. marketing, human resources, accounting). On the other hand, a law firm might choose to categorize paperwork by the cases they’re working on. However you choose to categories your paper filing system, just make sure it’s consistent and easy to use.

Labeling is Easy with the Oblique Hanging Compartments

The next part is where the Oblique hanging compartments come in. Once you’ve got the categories decided, you can create the labels for the compartments. An added bonus to the Oblique system is the labels. You can create color coded labels (one color for each department) or you can use a standard white label. The labels are also magnified, which makes them easier to read from a distance.

Store More Types of Paperwork in Oblique Compartments

color-coded category paper filing systemAnd because the hanging compartments are larger than a typical manila folder, they’re able to hold more and different types of items. You can store papers, brochures, photographs, folders, and more within just one hanging compartment. And you won’t have to worry about tears or splits since the Oblique products are made out of ultra-strong material and weighted to hold 20-25 pounds.

Use Oblique Hanging Compartments Almost Anywhere

The last thing to do is put away your hanging compartments. They can go anywhere from an overhead cubicle to lateral file cabinets, but they work best in open shelving. The reason is that the Oblique compartments are designed to maximize every inch of available space. And by using an open shelving storage system, you’ll save more space in your office.

You’ll find all of our Oblique hanging compartments online at our store. And if you need assistance getting started setting up your paper filing system, it’s no problem! We will help. Just give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.

4 Office Tweaks that Increase Space & Productivity

increase-office-space-productivityTwo of the biggest office complaints are a lack of space and low productivity. It would be nice if we could all work constantly without taking up any physical area, but that’s just not possible yet. Employees actually work better when they are comfortable, focused, and have the right amount of collaboration or private space. This doesn’t mean you have to completely redesign your whole office. You can actually just tweak a few things to get many of the same results in increased space and productivity.

1. Instead of replacing your whole storage system, add a movable tracked system.

Storage can take up a lot of space. But it doesn’t have to. Instead of adding more rows of shelving or lateral cabinets that will all need a lot of space, think about putting them on tracks. This way you removed the aisles typically needed to access stored items. (Check out our selection movable tracked systems that you can use to maximize your storage space.)

2. Create a collaborative space quickly with nest-n-stack tables.

There aren’t always meetings happening in the conference room, so many times it just sits there empty and only gets used when teams need to collaborate. Now, you can use it for more with the nest-n-stack tables. They set-up in seconds for easy collaboration, and then fold down and stack up just as fast to move out of the way for other activities.

3. Use hanging compartments so you don’t have to convert your filing system.

Top tab, end tab, color coded, large and small. More than likely over the years your filing system has changed, leaving you with a lot of different types of files. Instead of spending the time and money converting all of those files to one system (that you may not like within a few years), put them all in hanging compartments. Any type of file will fit in the compartments, and they’ve got a magnified label that makes for easy identification and retrieval.

4. For extra storage security add some rolling doors.

Locking file cabinets are great for securing information. Too bad they take up so much space and won’t store anything but top tab files. An easy solution to store all kinds of information is to move items to open shelving. But what about the security? Well, all you have to do is add rolling doors, and instantly everything is safe and secure.

With all of these innovative products, you will easily make the most of your space and keep your employees productive. And if you didn’t see what you were looking for, visit us online at StoreMoreStore or give us a call 1-855-786-7667. We are happy to help!

How to Organize Documents in Your Shelving

how to organize documents in shelvingSo you’ve got some shelving and a bunch of documents. Too bad that’s not all you need to actually organize all that paper. It won’t do any good to just stack a pile of papers on you shelving. You need documents to be easily accessible; otherwise, you would have just got rid of them. There are numerous ways to organize documents in your shelving, but here are some of our favorites.

Store Groups of Folders, Forms, Brochures, and Documents in Oblique Compartments

Oblique compartments hang in your shelving. The compartments are large enough to hold folders and many, many documents. This makes them a great solution for organizing forms and brochures. The magnified color-coded labels on all Oblique compartments keep all your documents easy to find too.

Store Large Documents, Drawings, and Blueprints Rolled in Cubby Shelves

If you have large documents like drawings and blue prints, your best bet is to store them rolled up. They’re safe from damage and take up way less space. But you can’t just store them rolled up in a pile on the floor or on any type of shelving. Specially designed cubby shelves are the ideal solution for storing rolled up large documents.

Store Legal File Folders in Redrope Pockets with Tabbies Handles

If you have legal case files, you want to keep them grouped together. That way nothing gets lost. But when you have so many folders, it can be hard to do. That’s why redrope pockets are a great solution for storing documents in your shelving. The expanding gusset lets you store all your legal file folders in one place. And if you add a Tabbies handle, you can use it as a color coded label that will not only make finding files easier, the handle will also protect your redrope pockets!

Quick Guide for Designing Customized File Folders

Most offices have their own unique filing system. So why should your folder have to be the same as everyone else’s? We offer a variety of folder styles, and a special option to design your own file folder. With so many options to choose from, it’s both easy and fun to create the perfect folder for your filing needs. Here is a quick guide to help you through the process and familiarize you with the selections.

Select Your Folder Stylefile-folder-design-type-end-tab-top-tab

First, you will want to choose a basic folder style: top tab or end tab, and letter size or legal size. End tab folders have three cut styles: straight cut, extended straight cut, and dual tab while the top tab folders have seven cut style options.

Ideally, you will want to pick a tab size that has enough room to include your file heading and any other information that helps make you filing system work better. Text headings, color-coded letters or numbers, date codes, and even barcodes can be added to improve the efficiency of your system.

Pick the Material for Your Folder

How often your filing system is accessed, the environment the folders are stored in, and your budgetary constraints, will guide your choice in folder material. We offer the following:

  • Manila: a classic and economical choice.
  • 100% Recycled Manila: an ideal choice for the eco-friendly office.
  • Manila with Antimicrobial Protection: treated manila resists growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew.
  • Watershed®/CutLess®: resists liquid spills, are dirt and finger-oil resistant, and significantly reduce paper cuts.
  • Color: makes filing more efficient with color-coding.
  • Kraft: perfect for frequent access or industrial settings.
  • Pressboard: durable and dense, it resists wear and tear.

There are also options for point thickness: 11, 14, 17 or 18. The higher the point thickness, the heavier and more durable the paper stock is.

Decide If You Need Addition Room for Paperwork

If you plan on storing a large about of paperwork in each folder, you will want to increase the expansion capabilities. For Manila, Kraft, and Color Folders there are two expansion options: standard, which is scored for ¾” expansion and w-fold, which has a “w” like fold that expands to hold up to 1 ½” of paperwork. For pressboard folders you can add a Tyvek® accordion-pleat gusset that expands to hold between 1-4 inches of paperwork.

Choose a Fastener Typefile-folder-fastener-design

There are three available fastener types to choose from:

  • Bonded: a strong fiber base bonds the brown enamel metal prongs of the fastener to the outside of the folders, but isn’t visible from the outside so it won’t scratch shelves or drawers.
  • Embedded: all-metal fastener with brown enamel finish that’s recessed to the folder from the outside to provide superior strength and hold large amounts of paper.
  • U Style: a flexible plastic fastener that allows the folder to function like a ring binder where pages can be added anywhere without removing other pages.

Finalize Your File Folder

Listed above are the main decisions you have to make, but there are other options to add labels and more dividers to your file folder. To get started, all you have to do is visit our site and we will walk you through the file folder design process. And if you have any questions or need help, please give us a call at 1-855-786-7667!

Tabbies Handles Protect Your Redrope Pockets From Damage

protect redrope file pocketsAre you tired of searching through your redrope file pockets for a file on a client, grabbing it, tearing the expanding gusset, and then finding out it wasn’t even the file you were looking for? Instead of wasting time, energy, and money replacing the expanding gusset file pockets, you can add a Tabbies handle to grab onto.

How Tabbie File Pocket Handles Work

Tabbies handles allow you to retrieve these important files with ease because they are made with Tyvek, which prevents the tearing of gussets. Additionally, the handles have a writing area to label your files and are color coded for easy recognition.

tabbies file pocket labelsThe Tabbies handle adhere to each side of your redrope file pockets and allows you to pull them instead of the expanding gussets.

Tabbies handles have a white writing area for labeling your expanding file pockets for fast and efficient file identification. Also, the handles come in different colors that can be used to classify different groups of files for even easier identification. Now when you are looking for a file you don’t have to read every label, you can just look for the corresponding color, which is a better solution since it’s easier to remember and identify colors than it is to read black and white writing.

4 Solutions for Increasing Storage Capacity in Less Office Space

storage solutions for the modern officeAll over the country businesses are downsizing their physical office spaces. Just four years ago each employee was allocated 225 sq. ft. of space, now they’re down to 150sq. ft. There are a multitude of reasons for these changes: rising costs of real-estate; increases in workers telecommuting or hotelling; and businesses switches to open office designs. But one thing hasn’t changed – businesses still have stuff to store.

Trying to maintain your storage capacity in less physical space is hard when you’re still relying on outdated storage systems like lateral file cabinets. To adapt to the modern office space, you’ll need to change the way you think about storage, and we can help. Here are 4 different storage solutions for stuff at your office that will maintain or even increase your storage capacity in a smaller space.

1. Convert Paper Files to Digital Documents

According to a story published on Entrepreneur.com, for every 30 copies printed in an office, 39% of them are just thrown away. On top of that, it costs about $25,000 to fill a four-drawer cabinet that holds 15-20,000 files, and $2,000 per year to maintain it.

To save on paper, labor, and space costs, many companies are moving (at least partially) to digital documents. And if you’re ready to take that step, we can help. Read more about our document scanning services in a previous blog here.

2. Sliding Storage Shelvingstorage solutions for increasing capacity in small spaces

Many times it’s not the storage system itself that takes up all your space, it’s actually the space you need to access the system. Like the space for the drawer to extend in a lateral file cabinet, or the aisles between each row of shelving.

Sliding storage shelving gets rid of this unnecessary access space, and gives you back the floor space. Find out how sliding storage shelving works to get rid of clutter and save space here.

3. Oblique Hanging Compartments

Directly transferring office files into a perfectly organized open shelving system means you could fit three times the number of files into half the floor space required with lateral or vertical drawer file cabinets. But how can you transfer top tab files to open shelving without converting to side tab folders? You do it with Oblique hanging compartments.

The Oblique hanging compartments enable you to move to a more efficient style of storage shelving, without converting your filing system. Take a look at all the available Oblique hanging compartments here.

4. Rotary Storage Cabinets

Rotary storage cabinets work for everything in your office including files, office supplies, boxes, binders, books computer media, and more. And since the cabinets have two sides and spin 360 degrees, they provide way more storage capacity in much less space.

In fact, you can fit the stuff from 3 lateral cabinets in just one rotary storage cabinet. Find out what else you gain with rotary storage cabinets here.

These are just a few storage solutions for increasing capacity in less office space. To see more options click here. Or you can give us a call at 1-855-786-7667, and we can design a personalized storage system just for you.
