What is a Lateral File?

Lateral file cabinets are the most efficient means of conventional filing. They provide easy accessibility of stored materials for the task at hand, or they are ideal for high-capacity filing in a centralized storage area.

Lateral files are available in 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-drawer heights, as well as three different widths: 30”, 36” and 42”. Lateral files accommodate file folders, documents, binders, and books.

HON lateral file cabinets address nearly all file storage needs and budgetary considerations.
