The very busy Miami County Engineering Office in Ohio is responsible for the storage and retrieval of 13,200 survey plats, 3,800 record plats, 2,500 tax maps, 745 aerial photos as well as numerous other maps and atlases.
The Engineering office has used Ulrich Model number 1180, two drawer file cabinets to file and preserve these mylar drawings since 1974. The Cabinets are filled with 18” x 24” documents; Architectural C size and Engineering A2 size map storage.
These cabinets hold up to the busy engineering office, holding hundreds of pounds of materials. Some of the cabinets have been in service for almost 30 years! What makes this cabinet so reliable is the Ulrich Model 1180 has custom drawer rails that are designed to hold up to 500 lbs each.
Ulrich Drawerfile cabinets offer the best document protection as well as easy filing and retrieval of maps, plans, and plats. This is due to Ulrich’s unique spring compression system as well as 112 folders that come standard with the cabinet. The spring compression system and tuff one folders keep the documents organized, flat, protected, and in as good a shape as when they were created. They also make filing these mylars easy!
Dennis Ventura, Miami County Deputy Engineer say, “We’ve used the plan files since I’ve been here in the 80’s. They keep our mylars in very good shape.”
