Rolling filing cabinets&mdash;referred to in the industry as mobile file pedestals&mdash;feature casters at the bottom of the file cabinet. This allows you to easily wheel the cabinet when you need to move it. Rolling file cabinets tend to be on the smaller side, as casters may not be able to support the weight of larger file cabinets. Mobile file pedestals are designed to fit under a standard-height office desk.&nbsp;</p> <h2 dir="ltr">Rolling File Cabinet Styles</h2> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">2-drawer mobile file pedestal: 2-drawer mobile file cabinets come in 2 configurations. The file cabinet will either feature 2 file drawers or a single file drawer and an office supply/storage drawer. Some 2-drawer rolling file cabinets accommodate letter-size and legal-size files, while others can only fit letter-size files.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">3-drawer mobile file pedestal: A 3-drawer mobile file pedestal will typically include one file drawer and 2 office supply/storage drawers. Some 3-drawer rolling file cabinets accommodate letter-size and legal-size files, while others can only fit letter-size files.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Cushioned mobile file pedestal: A cushioned mobile file pedestal features a cushioned top, which allows the file cabinet to be used as additional seating when necessary.&nbsp;</p> </li> </ul> <h2 dir="ltr">Surfaces That Work for Rolling File Cabinets</h2> <p dir="ltr">Casters allow mobile storage units to easily roll from one space to another across smooth surfaces and high-pile carpets.</p> &nbsp; <h2 dir="ltr">Rolling File Cabinet Materials</h2> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Laminate rolling file cabinet: Because laminate is an engineered material, it can be constructed to withstand high levels of impact and consistent wear. There are different grades of laminate, with some more durable than others. High-performance laminate can be one of the best materials for corporate office settings because of its ability to withstand wear and tear.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Wood rolling file cabinet: Solid wood file cabinets are as beautiful as they are timeless. They also come with a couple of drawbacks: They&rsquo;re heavy, making them difficult to move, and they aren&rsquo;t as durable as many performance office furniture materials. Because of this, wood file cabinets are usually best used in a home office setting.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Engineered wood rolling file cabinet: Engineered wood pairs affordability with durability. If you&rsquo;re looking for the &ldquo;solid wood&rdquo; look but don&rsquo;t want to pay the price tag that matches it, engineered wood can be an ideal alternative. While they are affordable, most engineered wood file cabinets aren&rsquo;t as durable as other materials.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Metal rolling file cabinet: Metal is lightweight, affordable, and durable, making it a popular material for file cabinets.</p> </li> </ul> <h2 dir="ltr">Other Types of File Storage</h2> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Vertical file cabinets: Vertical file cabinets feature drawers that are deeper than they are wide. Files are stored in a vertical file with the front of the file facing forward. This makes it easy to view file labels at a glance. Some vertical file cabinets can accommodate letter-size files only, while others can fit both legal- and letter-size files. A vertical file cabinet may include other features like a locking drawer or additional office storage drawers.</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Lateral file cabinets: Lateral file cabinets feature drawers that are wider than they are deep. In a lateral file cabinet, the front of the file faces the drawer. Lateral file cabinets allow robust file storage and can be ideal for workstations/cubicles that require robust file storage. However, you need more space to fit a lateral file.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Side tab file cabinets: Common in healthcare and medical settings, side tab file cabinets are especially great for color-coded file storage. Some side tab file cabinets have doors, while others do not.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Tambour door file cabinets: Tambour door file cabinets are a type of side tab file cabinet with a door that folds back into the storage unit. Tambour door file cabinets are ideal for tight spaces that can&rsquo;t accommodate swinging doors.</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Rotary file cabinets: Rotary file cabinets offer a lot of storage in small spaces. A rotary filing cabinet is double-faced, so the unit can be rotated, revealing columns of files on either side. Rotary file cabinets can have as few as 2 shelves or as many as 8 shelves. They are typically configured in a side tab file style.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Card file cabinets: Card file cabinets function similarly to card catalogs at the library. A card file cabinet fits notecard-size cards. They do not fit letter- or legal-size files.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Flat file cabinets: Flat file cabinets are used to display and store blueprints and other large-form documents. Flat file cabinets are ideal for designers, real estate developers, and architects.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Storage islands: Storage islands allow you to use the top of the file cabinet as a work surface. Storage islands usually feature a counter-height work surface. Storage islands can be ideal for maximizing office square footage and creating collaboration space.&nbsp;</p> </li> </ul> &nbsp; <h2 dir="ltr">File Cabinet Solutions by Document Type</h2> <p dir="ltr">Make sure your file cabinet fits what you&rsquo;re trying to store.
