Looking into getting a file cabinet. Was considering a 3 or 4 draw HON 30" lateral, with filing back to front. That would make it the equivalent of a 6-8 draw vertical for slightly more cost. (These are both assuming letter size papers). As I hope to use the bottom draw (or half of it in the case of a lateral) to store specialty paper supplies (resume paper, envelopes), and with lots to file, I feel like a standard 4 draw vertical won't be enough.
However, the laterals dont have a spring back for loading. Even when placing items in back to simulate the spring load, the files don't appear to line up as they do in vertical cabinets and sorta slide down.
Does anyone have a suggestion on what to do? I could theoretically get 2 verticals, but would prefer the single lateral. Has anyone tried a similar setup (lateral with side to side loading)?
Thanks in advance,
