BluePrint Storage in 75% less space

Full Featured, Easy to Use BluePrint Storage at Dickten Masch 

Blueprint storage is important for the busy process engineering department at Dickten Mash Plastics. They had been using flat filing cabinets for a number of years and were frustrated with the limitations of this type of file cabinet, after careful consideration they choose the Ulrich Cadfile as their solution for blueprint storage:
flat filing cabinet for blueprint storage takes up too much space and is difficult to use.
blueprint storage with cadfile, saves 75% over flat filing cabinet

Flat Filing Cabinet Limitations

  • Too much floor space – 16 sq ft
  • Difficult to use
  • Hard to find needed print
  • Blueprints curl at edges and tear
  • Cabinet is heavy, needs to be disassembled to move

Cadfile Cabinet Benefits

And the Cadfiles ease of filing, means that blueprints are re-filed instead of stacked on top.
