2.How to choose a lockable file cabinet style?

According to different office needs, documents can be selected in different styles, including desktop drawer type lock file cabinet and floor type lock file cabinet.

Desktop drawer type file cabinet with lock

The desktop drawer file cabinet is suitable for storing some frequently used materials, which is easy to take at any time. Most of this drawer-type filing cabinet is made of plastic, which is not as durable as iron or stainless steel filing cabinets.

At the same time, the drawer type file cabinet is easy to move and occupies a small area, which is suitable for long-term use on the desk.

★Floor-mounted file cabinet with lock

The floor-to-ceiling file cabinet with lock is large, not only can store materials, but also can store a lot of office items or personal items.

Floor-mounted file cabinets with locks are more commonly used in modern offices, and different floor-to-ceiling file cabinets have different internal structures.

The floor-mounted lockable file cabinet usually has partitions, which divide the file cabinet into unequal spaces for storing different materials.

Therefore, when purchasing, you can choose according to your office needs and storage of different items.

3.What are the materials for making file cabinets?

Which one is the best for office filing cabinets? Many customers also encountered difficulties when choosing a file cabinet with locks. Faced with so many types of file cabinets with locks on the market, customers and friends do not know which one to choose is better. There are three basic types of file cabinets with locks on the market today. The first one is a plastic file cabinet with locks, the second one is made of steel materials, and the third one is ordinary wood materials. These three types of lockable filing cabinets have their own advantages, and of course they also have their own shortcomings. When choosing, friends can grasp according to their actual situation. Let's take a look at the situation of these wood file cabinet.

One of the more common file cabinets with locks in the office is made of wood raw materials. The characteristics of the file cabinets made of this raw material are that they look very layered. The characteristic of this kind of file cabinet is that it is made of wood materials with layers, and it is used more, and it is very convenient to use to save files.

The second type is plastic filing cabinets with locks. This kind of filing cabinets is also used more now. The characteristic is that the shapes can be made very rich, and the cost is relatively low, but this kind of filing cabinets has shortcomings. The only thing is that after a long time, the plastic may be deformed.

There is also a kind of steel material. This kind of lock file cabinet is also popular now. Because it is made of steel material, it is sturdy and durable, but it is cumbersome when transporting. Of course, the steel material itself is strong. When storing data, especially when saving some important documents, it is very safe and reliable.

The main three types of office lockable file cabinets are like this. When friends choose, they can determine and grasp according to their actual situation. If you think you need something more beautiful and fashionable, then It is generally good to choose plastic materials, but if you want to choose a layered and tasteful one, it is best to consider wood materials. If you pay special attention to the security of documents, it is definitely good to choose steel materials, because steel materials are strong and durable, and have excellent anti-theft functions.

4.Is there a pulley at the bottom of the file cabinet?

If you choose a floor-mounted file cabinet with locks, choose the one with pulleys at the bottom. Because floor-to-ceiling filing cabinets are cumbersome, if you need to make some changes to the items in the house on a regular basis, there just isn't a lot of people around to move them around that need help. In fact, if there is a file cabinet with pulleys at the bottom, you can move it yourself without the assistance of someone.

Therefore, in order to facilitate the movement of the file cabinet, it is recommended to purchase a file cabinet with pulleys.

5.Why choose a file cabinets with locks?

So when buying a file cabinet, you need to pay attention to the type of file cabinet key lock. Generally, companies store regular documents, and only need to buy file cabinets with ordinary key locks.

And if it is to store some very important information of the company, such as account books, cash, official seal, contract seal and other items, choose a file cabinet with an electronic password lock. Especially for companies with specially equipped financial rooms, it is very important to have a filing cabinet with an electronic combination lock.
