How to buy a lateral filing cabinet?

How to buy a lateral filing cabinet?
  1. Look for reinforced, welded steel corners. These are the cornerstones of a sturdy file. To ensure years of trouble-free use, make sure all sides of the cabinet are welded together.
  2. Make sure the cabinet has a central cam lock for document safe-keeping.
  3. Levelling glides help to keep the cabinet frame square, allowing the door and lock to open easily.
  4. Suspend your workload. Solid steel ball-bearing suspensions help heavy, full drawers open and close smoothly.
  5. Don’t lock yourself out. Use a positive action lock. For total flexibility, files should hold both letter and legal size file folders.
  6. All Global laterals come with a lifetime components warranty for the original purchaser.
  7. Prevent accidents. Specify cabinets that allow you to open just one drawer at a time so the cabinet won’t tip over.
  8. So your work doesn’t fall through the cracks, get a lateral with full-height drawer sides.
  9. Global has both receding front and fixed front drawers on our lateral files. Receding front openings easily accommodate three ring binders in “B” openings.
  10. Global’s durable finish is environmentally friendly; overspray paint is recycled.
  11. Global’s cabinets are equipped with all metal interlock features (only one drawer can open at a time).
