Do I need Lateral files or Suspension files?

Vertical suspension files(Standard suspension files) are accessed from the top and usually have tabs or labels on the top. These are generally used in the type of filling storage that you would pull out like a filing Cabinet or pedestal.

Lateral suspension files are accessed from the side and have their tabs on the side for easy reference and access. These are usually stored in a cupboard with a lateral filing system or a side filing cabinet. If you are unsure what type of suspension file you need check to see how the existing files are suspended, if documents are accessed from the top then you’ll need standard suspension files. If they are accessed from the side you will need to purchase lateral suspension files.
