Certain professions produce as part of their work big documents and other creations which are unwieldy. Architects, graphic designers, artists, cartographers and engineers produce plans, charts, maps, drawings and blueprints which are tricky to store without harmful folding or piling into unsightly and vulnerable heaps.
As opposed to plan chests in which plans and drawings are laid flat in drawers, items are hung and stored vertically. Plans are clasped by drawing binders which are suspended from the rails of a plan storage trolley or wall rack. Self-adhesive suspension tape attaches to the plan or drawing to prevent wear and tear from handling.
As a vertical filing system, Hang-A-Plan storage saves on floor space by up to 80% compared to flat storage. Vertically suspended plans are also very accessible, dramatically cutting time spent searching for items and filing them away again.
