Are you using four-post open shelving to manage your files? That’s a great first step in improving records management. However, there’s always a next step in making your file system work even better. Adding steel shelving dividers is the logical progression for keeping your files grouped and standing upright within their appropriate categories.
Adjustable File Supports Keep Your Files Organized
Being able to easily adjust the location of these file dividers keeps your files packed just snuggly enough for easy access. If they’re packed too close, it’s hard to get a folder out without accidentally pulling out more than one file. It’s also difficult to get folders back in their assigned place without damaging the corners and edges. Color coded filing systems rely on vertical support to keep the bars of colored labels in line. If file supports are too far apart in a color coded filing system, the folders slide down and rest at an angle. That’s the kind of “bad posture” that will leave your color-coded labels out of alignment, defeating the purpose of color coding files.
There are a number of reasons you might want to acquire more shelving dividers. First, if you inherited your current shelving unit from a previous user or another office location, there’s a pretty good chance that the original metal dividers didn’t make it through the transition. They may have been packed separately and ended up lost. Or, maybe the number of dividers that came with your shelving system are inadequate for your needs. It’s kind of like when you go to a Tex-Mex restaurant and order fajitas for two people…and they bring you 3 tortillas to share. It’s just not enough to get the job done.
