Lateral file cabinets on wheels are also available, and their shape is more stable for rolling than vertical file cabinets on wheels. About the only "disadvantage" of wood lateral file cabinets is that they resemble nice furniture and cant always take the manhandling that metal file cabinets regularly take. Most people dont expect for a metal file cabinet to be attractive. With some models of wood lateral file cabinets, the laminate is easy to scratch or mar. This is primarily a problem with lower priced file cabinets. But overall, people like lateral file cabinets, whether wood or metal, for their easier access and space maximizing properties. Without having to pull the drawers out as far as with vertical filing cabinets, access is easier, and tipping forward is less of a threat.
When there are guests around the office and there is a need for an extra table for service or anything of that kind, the furniture comes in handy and after the visitation, it is safely returned to its space where it serves as a desk once again. It is such a flexible component in the office as it eliminates the anxiety and worry plus reducing the number of furniture in the room which means more floor space which adds aesthetic value to the office space. They come with extra drawers Considering the many types of tables and desks that are in the market, it is highly likely that the desks with drawers will be in plenty due to the extra space it proffers for storing your books, calculators and other office items that should not be too far from the working space.
Because even a two-drawer wood lateral file cabinet can accommodate reams of paper without hogging too much floor space, they are a top pick for home offices, medical offices, schools, government agencies, and any office that is required to hold large quantities of paper files. A Wood Lateral File Cabinet seems to enjoy more popularity than its cousin, the standard vertical Wood File Cabinet. They may be more sturdy due to the weight but at any rate they seem to do the job intended and are especially popular in the legal and medical professions. The Wood Lateral File Cabinet pictured is labeled as a Laminate Wood Lateral File Cabinet, 3 Drawer and Four Drawer and is marked with a hefty retail price of over $3900.00. It is a bit pricey but you have a choice of 24 colors (see color chart below) and it looks more like a built in cabinet instead of a normal wood lateral file cabinet.
