9 Ways to Use Compactfile Filing Storage in Your Workplace
Use your space-saving Compactfile filing storage unit to store more than just binders.
The beauty of Compactfile is its versatility as a space-saving storage solution. Because it doesn’t have to stand against a wall and every item is easily accessible with a simple rotation, the Compactfile can be used to store almost anything that will fit on it. Each level has a raised edge so items can’t just slip off, and they can take up to a 75kg load each. Beyond storing binders, the possibilities are endless. Here are just a few ideas for your workplace:
Archive roomThe design of the Compactfile means that you can use the space in your archive room more efficiently and store more files in the same amount of space. Each 6-level unit can hold up to 144 binders while only taking up 0.64sqm of floor space (binders are considered to be A4, 80mm spine, and “filled to a normal extent").
Home officeIf you work from home, you want to use the space you have in the best possible way. A Compactfile unit takes up little floor space, and you can start with just a 1-level tabletop unit or a 2-level floorstanding unit and add to it as needed.
Reception area/Waiting roomKeep magazines and books, displays and flyers in order on a Compactfile. A 1-level unit can be used on a low table, adding storage space for loose items. A 2-level unit can double as a side table, with the top used for display or for people to rest their drinks or belongings.
Meeting roomWith the majority of space in your meeting room dedicated to your meeting table and chairs, storage space can be an issue. Going vertical with a Compactfile in an empty corner can provide somewhere for things like AV equipment, tea and coffee items, water bottles, stationery, or whatever you may need. Or place a 1-level unit on the meeting table, so items can be reached with just an easy rotation.
Collaborative environmentAdd castors to make your Compactfile mobile so it can be moved around in your collaborative space or from one environment to another with ease. You can allocate a level to each collaborator or make it communal.
SchoolsIf you work in a school or educational institution, you can maximise the space in classrooms or communal learning areas with the efficient Compactfile storage units. Store your digital media, AV equipment, books, blocks, craft and more. Customise the height of your Compactfile for your age group. The 5-armed base provides optimum stability and fine-tuned height adjustment for non-level surfaces.
LibrariesStore books, magazines and other items efficiently on a Compactfile in a library. Units can be close to a wall, with a row of Compactfiles together, or freestanding in an open area. Create room dividers from rows of units to break up difference areas, and use varying heights in open spaces for a more dynamic feel.
Warehouse/StoreroomThe Compactfile is melamine-resin coated, incredibly stable, and has a 75kg per level maximum load, making it perfect for your warehouse or storeroom environment. Use it to store containers of loose, small items, or stationery supplies, packaging tape guns, etc.
Staff kitchenIt’s like a “Lazy Susan" for all your kitchen needs. The entire unit rotates making it convenient for accessing items at the back without having to reach or contort. Keep all of your communal kitchen items like salt and pepper, sauces, water bottles, or snacks readily accessible. A 1-level unit could be placed on a bar fridge in a smaller kitchen to add extra storage space.
