At Paperstone we have a complete selection of all types, sizes and brands of suspension files and suspension filing solutions. From economy manilla 5 Star, through to premium range Rexel and Leitz suspension filing. We offer the complete solution for your office's filing cabinets.

What are Suspension files?

Suspension files are an integral part of any office storage solution, they enable large amounts of paper to be filed away into folders in filing cabinets; and create an easy and efficient system for looking up paperwork. The two main suspension file sizes are foolscap and A4: foolscap suspension files are slightly larger than A4 suspension files.

Suspension File Sizes - Foolscap vs. A4

Suspension files rest on parallel runners (or rails). The distance between these runners determines whether you need A4 suspension files or Foolscap suspension files:


A4 suspension files sit on runners that are approximately 345mm apart.

Foolscap suspension files sit on runners that are approximately 400mm apart.
