A guide to Hon filing cabinets

The first filing systems were quite unlike the filing cabinets of today. Until 1898, the filing system consisted of pigeon holes, or wooden slots stacked vertically. These pigeon holes were in desks or on walls, and required papers to be put inside envelopes to fit in them. Thanks to Edwin G Seibels, the filing cabinets of today were invented. Hon, a company based in Muscatine, Iowa, offers three major types of filing cabinets that will be useful for any office.

Four drawer letter filing cabinet

Hon offers the four drawer letter filing cabinet which is a classic vertical cabinet; it is perhaps one of the most recognisable to all. Each of the drawers extends to allow files to be filed with their tabs facing the front of the drawer for easy viewing. If you prefer hanging files, you can convert the drawer to accommodate the frames on which the hanging files hang. The Hon filing cabinet comes in a variety of colours. Each have a Hon file cabinet lock. The dimensions of this cabinet are 52 inches tall, 15 inches wide, and 26 1/2 inches deep.

Four drawer lateral filing cabinet

The Hon cabinet is a lateral file cabinet. Like the four drawer letter filing cabinet, this cabinet features four drawers. Unlike the first cabinet, the drawers are wider, so that the folder's tabs face the side of the drawer and not the front. This allows you to store more files in each drawer. This cabinet also comes in a variety of colours and has a lock as well. The dimensions of this cabinet is 53 1/4 inches high, 30 inches wide, 19 1/4 inches deep.

File centre

The file centre is a combination file cabinet/storage cabinet. The cabinet has a lateral file drawer, as well as letter file drawer and two smaller drawers for additional storage. This cabinet measures 30 inches wide, 18 inches deep, and 28 high. This Hon storage cabinet/file cabinet comes in 19 colours ranging from white to Colombian walnut laminate and more. The file drawers and the boxes can be changed as you wish; the file centre also has four choices for drawer pulls which can help you coordinate this cabinet with the rest of the furniture in the office.
