  1. Jarrod Porter

    The cabinet arrived in great condition and should workout great for us. AWESOME CABINET!!

    • Barbara Berry

      Thanks Jarrod. Call us anytime if you have any questions or need any help with your cabinet.

  2. Blair Myron, Facility Archivist, Washington State University

    I think the best way to put it is that I can’t imagine doing my job without them. We have a variety of storage systems from rolled tube cabinets to hanging file racks but the Ulrich cabinets do the best job of keeping our materials organized, protected and accessible. We have about 18 full size cabinets and a few half size ones of varying ages and they all are in great shape, even the ones that see daily use and abuse.

    • Barbara Berry

      Thanks Blair

  3. Matt Nisbet

    We transformed from an awkward, inaccessible, uncatalogued, bulky “system” (so-called) of storing plans to the opposite of all of those with this cabinet. Talk about a game-changer. We can now quickly find plans that impact new contract work, saving lots of time and worry, and we are confident that if we ever suffered catastrophe on site, we might still be able to clear the rubble and find our plans still intact. If I were to change anything, it would be to add depth to the pop-out shelf in order to more easily accommodate the support of a pulled-out folder, but even with that shortcoming, I would definitely choose buy this product over again.

    • Barbara Berry

      Hi Matt,
      I’m so glad the cabinet works well for you. Barb

  4. Jennifer Lawrence

    Generally well-built, nice design and has a nice small footprint. The layout shelf is a little difficult to put down sometimes; on the other-hand it falls down on its own occasionally. This space-saving unit holds a very large amount of plan files which are fairly easy to access when unit is not full. However, if full to recommended capacity, the folders can be very difficult to retrieve and replace. Great for true archiving; not the best if plans need frequent access.

    • Barbara Berry

      Hi Jenn,
      I’m so sorry about your shelf. We have shipped you a new one at no cost. I know that will fix the problem.

      We are glad that the cabinet is saving you space. You have a great plan room – “The Vault”.

      A good tip for getting the folders to return easily to the cabinet is to bend the two sides of the folder toward you. This slight bow in the folder reduces the contact friction and the folder will slide down into the cabinet. See this video: https://youtu.be/LgSfrteYRBQ

      You bring up a good point about the different uses for the cabinet. At 3,000 or less documents the cabinet is meant for frequent access. When filled near the 6,000 document level the cabinet is great for archival use as it is a little more difficult to remove and return the documents.

      I have enjoyed working with you Jenn.

  5. Nathan Doornenbal

    This filing cabinet holds a lot of files and takes up very little space. But it can be difficult to remove and replace drawings.

    • Barbara Berry

      Hi Nathan,
      A few tips to make document removal and replacement easier. Stay within the 3,000 document capacity for active use. Use a more even loading of each pocket.

      Here is a brief video showing the best document filing technique from the Jamestown BPU. https://youtu.be/LgSfrteYRBQ
