Undoubtedly world has entered the twenty first century but still paperwork has not been completely transferred to e-work. Every office has paperwork to do and in order to maintain the records of events that have been done and are yet to be done are stored in the form of files. If files get damaged the company might face severe problems and this can also be lethal for the company.
Why fireproof cabinets?
In order to save these files from getting damaged there are stored in cabinets which protect them from getting damaged by rains, snowstorms and other disasters but what if the cabinet itself catches fire? Fireproof file cabinets come to the rescue there. These are simple cabinets of steel or irons which do not easily catch fire also the paints used on them are non-inflammable that is they cannot catch fire. Some cabinets are so designed that explosions also don’t cause any harm to the files placed inside the cabinets.
Types of cabinets
Though these cabinets come in different shapes and sizes like they can be stack types for consisting of five to six drawers stacked on each other while other cabinets can be window types where there are separate cabins for each type of files and each cabin has its own window or door hinged from one side of the cabin. Sliding window cabinets are also used to add classic and elegant touch to the interiors of the room.
Rating for fireproof cabinets
These fireproof cabinets have different ratings based on which the customer can purchase the cabinet like:
- UL one hour fire rating
- Explosion rating

- Impact rating
- Security rating.
Designing and ornamenting the cabinets
Besides offering complete security and protection they can also be used to decorate the interiors of the office or room. They come in different sizes and designs. There can be vertical cabinets or horizontal cabinets. They come in maple furnishing, wood furnishing, and wallpapered, handcrafted, carved and so on depending up on the customer’s requirement. Some cabinets are multipurpose that can store the files as well as act as a table or any other object on which stuff like computer, laptop, sound system, television, fax machines, printers and other type of electronic and electrical items can be kept.
Some cabinets can also have lighting system in them that can add glowing and silent touch to the room at night. Talking of the shapes they can be circular, cylindrical, rectangular, conical and other shapes. They can be as tall as the wall or as short as the bed size.
Though the cabinets can be water resistance they also need to be fireproof so that no damage is caused to the material lying in the cabinets. Safety comes first and then further experimentation can be done in their designs and shapes.
