School Map Storage at Jefferson Middle School

Art print and school map storage at Jefferson Middle School. Saving space and protecting these important educational prints, posters and maps is of key importance. This mobile compact large document storage cabinet is the perfect tool for this job.

Located in Jamestown, NY is the Jefferson Middle School. In fact this public school houses grade levels 5-8 with a student population of approximately 400. Altogether the library and its staff, provide a quiet haven for book-worms and those with a thirst for learning. Not to mention when that learning extends to outside of the classroom.


In this case a large computer lab, massive book collection and numerous student work displays provide little room for more supplementary materials, such as Maps, Posters and Art Prints. For this reason the Ulrich Cadfile is the school map storage solution that provides yet another learning opportunity for the students at Jefferson.


In particular the Cadfile cabinet  houses a map collection and Picture America art prints and posters from the National Endowment for Humanities. In fact this storage cabinet benefits not only the library but the whole school.

“Immediately, the file made it very easy to catalog and enter each item into the circulation system.” –Julie Livengood, Jefferson Middle School Library Media Specialist


Especially helpful is the space saving technology provided with the vertical filing system. In addition to being space saving the labeled folders make it easy to locate the correct material quickly. Whenever teachers need many items for a project, we can easily wheel the entire unit to the classroom.

  • Only 10.75″ deep
  • 20 heavy duty folders come with the cabinet
  • High capacity – 1,000 documents
  • Casters make it mobile
  • File and remove documents easily – see video at end of article

Asheville Government Office

Map Storage for Asheville NC

The large number of property and tax maps belonging to the government office in Asheville, NC demanded a sophisticated method for filing and organizing. The county office now utilizes a number of Ulrich Pinfiles, which effectively and efficiently manage the maps and their frequent usage.

The maps at this office are used by the general public, contractors and government workers; therefore, the filing system needed to be easy to use. With so many potential users, the ergonomics were an important consideration, as was the ability to access each individual map quickly. Space was limited and the county office hoped to find a system with the capacity to file all the maps in one room—- with space remaining for the large format copy machines and plotters.

Flat files were deemed too difficult for the users because the individual maps would be stacked in drawers containing close to 100 maps per drawer. Replacing a map pulled from the bottom of a drawer would be almost impossible. Furthermore, flat files would have cost more and there was simply not enough room to house this inefficient model. The county office chose the Ulrich Pinfile for the great benefits it affords.

  • Ease of use and ergonomics with all filing done at a comfortable height.
  • Great individual map access. Users only handle the map they want.
  • Space saving vertical design and attractive, modern styling for the office.
  • The highest quality construction with beautiful finish and durability.
