Blueprint Cabinet – Flat files are units of organization and storage of tools for home, study and office. They are used by artists, galleries, architects, planning offices, contractors and other industries that use large paper or flat materials. The dimensions of the flat files vary depending on the materials commonly used in a particular industry or activity and are made in a wide variety of sizes. Flat files are made of wood, laminate or steel and have large, shallow, large drawers.
Commonly available sizes for flat file drawers are 20 by 26-inches, 24 inches by 30 inches, 24 by 36 inches, 30-by-42 inches, 32-by-40 inches and 36 by 48 inches. This is stated in terms of the paper size that can be accommodated more than the actual size of the drawer and the size of the finished box. You can expect the drawer to be a little larger to facilitate the disposal and storage of projects. Manufacturers should indicate the final size of the specifications for more precise measurements.

The height of the drawer is an important factor and having both shallow and deep draws is useful. Shallow drawers are useful for work in progress and work that may have wet surfaces or dimensional components that cannot be stacked. File and museum standards also require drawers to accommodate a single work of art.
