File Cabinets | Filing Cabinets

A filing cabinet is a type of storage furniture meant for storing and categorizing important paper documents. Typical filing cabinets have two to four drawers each, and contain multiple file folders within that can be pulled out via a small handle on the exterior of the cabinet. Most filing cabinets also have a label holder fixed on the front for organization and identification. Found in offices and places of work, the different types of filing cabinets include single box, vertical and lateral filing cabinets which are commonly made from 18-gauge sheet metal or from a wood composite.

How do you remove file cabinet drawers?

The first step is to open the drawer and pull it to its stopping point. Then, put both hands on the sides of the drawer towards the back. Metal tabs should be located on either side. Push the tabs in, lift the drawer up, and pull it out.

What is a file cabinet?

A file cabinet, also known as filing cabinet, is a piece of storage or office furniture meant to store important paper documents. These documents are typically separated into file folders, which are then placed into the drawers of the cabinet.

How do you replace a lost file cabinet key?

One will need to contact the cabinet manufacturer to request a key replacement. This costs money and it can take up to a few weeks to retrieve the replacement. If unable to wait for the new key because there are documents to get to, it is important to take note of the brand, model, and other necessary information of the file cabinet and then contact a locksmith.
