Filing
Store important information quickly and easily with Hertz Furniture's office file cabinets. Our wide selection of styles and materials makes it a breeze to organize and retrieve office documents. No matter what your budget or style is, you can find some great filing cabinets from Hertz Furniture.

What are the different types of file cabinets? We have steel, wood, lateral, vertical, and just about any other arrangement you can think of. Whether you are furnishing a school office, law firm or medical practice, there are plenty of functional and durable file cabinet choices. Our models come from leading manufacturers including HON, Sandusky Lee, DMI and Martin Furniture.

What is the best way to organize documents?

A file cabinet is definitely a great solution for document organization. There are two main configuration options for file cabinets: lateral and vertical. Vertical file cabinets are deeper than the lateral option and don't take up a lot of wall space. This arrangement is ideal for any environment in which there are lot of papers such as a law office, school or clinic. However, for those who prefer to have files concentrated lower to the floor and don't mind using some extra wall space, lateral cabinets are probably a better choice.

Another important factor to take note of is the size of paper that drawers are meant to accommodate. There is a difference between letter and legal sized paper, so it is important to make sure that the documents that need to be filed will fit well in the space. For larger papers such as blueprints, artwork, maps and drawings, we have flat files from Sandusky Lee. Wide drawers with weights inside will keep documents stored properly and prevent papers from curling while in storage.

Document storage isn't all about just having a place to put things. Many professional settings require secure spaces for confidential, valuable or irreplaceable papers. Most of our file drawers include built-in locks which protect contents from prying eyes. Anti-tip devices on some cabinets only allow one drawer to be opened at a time so cabinets won't fall over from the weight and papers will stay in place.

What are the benefits of fireproof file cabinets?

For the ultimate document protection, there are fortified impact-resistant models from Sentry Safe. These fireproof file cabinets keep materials intact for up to an hour in the direct heat of flames. Each drawer has an independent inner vault which prevents fire from spreading if a one drawer is accidentally left open.

Do I need a storage cabinet in the office?

Many professional spaces require more than just extra filing. When office desks just don't have enough room for everything that is needed, consider purchasing a storage cabinet that includes file drawers as well. With this arrangement, papers and supplies can be housed together in one place, and a workspace gets a variety of storage solutions so everything can be kept in a proper space.

Metal file cabinets are highly durable, so they will stay in shape through many years of paper storage. They will fit well in a storage room or an auxiliary office space. With a selection of colors, you can arrange a coordinated room or color-code your document storage so it is easier for everyone to find what they are looking for.

What are the best office file cabinets?

Hard-working professionals deserve to work in an appealing space, and you want to make sure that your offices are presentable when potential clients and business partners come to visit. While steel filing cabinets are strong and functional, they might not fit with the image you want to project in a high-class professional work space. To keep an office coordinated with sleek and stylish furniture, you can match laminate or wooden file cabinets with office desks, credenzas and other pieces.

Matching furniture colors is one way to create an appealing space, but for those who like everything to be as coordinated as possible, there is an even better option. Hertz Furniture carries many filing cabinets that are part of office furniture collections, which provide a perfect match to other pieces in the workspace. There are freestanding models as well as mobile pedestals which can fit under an executive desk for effortless access.

Every piece of furniture in your office should add to the overall style and professionalism of the work space. With Hertz Furniture's sleek selection of file cabinets, you can keep up an attractive image while attaining great storage at the same time. With so many excellent choices, it can be easy to become overwhelmed.

From office furniture to classroom furniture and everything in between, don't hesitate to fill your space with eco friendly models. With such a great selection, you can stay true to your values and still decorate your space according to your own personal preferences.

So what exactly is eco friendly furniture? If you see a school desk or office chair with a Greenguard or MAS Certified Green symbol next to it, you can be sure that it has been tested and found to have low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions. VOCs are the main cause of indoor air pollution- which is just as unhealthy and undesirable as it sounds. If you want to have a healthy work environment for your students and employees, certified green is the way to go.

What are the benefits of green and eco-friendly classrooms?

In addition to giving students a healthier classroom environment, studies show the profound influence eco-friendly classrooms have on learning. According to research from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, learning spaces with high air quality and natural lighting conditions can boost productivity. Furthermore, sustainable facilities can improve student performance by up to 20%.

It's not hard to be green at school or in the office when you have so many models to choose from. Green building and sustainability are only becoming more and more important. Because we are more aware than ever of the impact pollution can have on our planet, there has been a big push for product manufacturers to address the impact of their products on the environment. This is definitely a good thing that we should be happy about. It also means there are no excuses for an office not taking advantage of all the green options. With so many passionate environmentalists out there, don't be surprised if the right eco friendly office furniture starts earning you some new clients.

Even people who are passionate about taking care of the environment might not have time to research all kinds of materials and products. An environmentalist also doesn't have to be someone who has studied the field in an academic setting. A person can care about health and sustainability without understanding anything about chemical compounds used in manufacturing. For everyone out there who cares, Certified Green products can be trusted. Experts who know everything about chemical emissions and sustainability have checked these products thoroughly, and if they give their certification, you know you can count on it.

There are many different green certifications out there, but a lot of them are looking for similar things. If you are worried about VOCs, MAS Certified Green products have passed extensive emissions testing performed by experts in the field. The tests are in compliance with industry standards. Products with the SCS stamp of approval are part of sustainable solutions. SCS is determined to safeguard our environment, support workers and communities and raise the standard of living for all.

Eco friendly companies that are selling furniture still need to be concerned about the buyer's needs in terms of comfort and style. Luckily, there are certifications that combine ratings for comfortable and eco friendly office furniture. The CHPS symbol recognizes products that are comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient and safe.Schools should definitely look for this certification on products they are considering because high indoor air quality and good daylight keep students healthy and happy so they can learn better. With the right designs, distractions are reduced so students can see and hear properly.

Office and school furniture that is ANSI BIFMA certified is recognized for comfort, safety, sustainability and durability. BIFMA guidelines help eco friendly furniture stores promote good environmental equilibrium, health and well-being. With a standard that tests durability, you can be sure that your school chairs or office desks will be around for a long time. The longer your office chair lasts and maintains a professional appearance, the less materials you will have to waste by replacing it.

When you are looking for some new bookcases or computer chairs, make sure to go green. When you buy from environmentally friendly companies, you invest in the future of your company or school. Make the eco friendly choice to start working toward a better tomorrow today.
