Bisley LateralFile Lockers – Power more. Protect more. Store more.

Five reasons why we think the updated Bisley LateralFile Lodges would be a great addition to your workplace

  1. They’re silent
     Soft-close hinges come as standard as do double-skin doors, which are not only more attractive and stronger, but they also help to dampen sound.
  2. They’re powerful
    Lockers become charging stations. Our LateralFile Lodges let users securely power up throughout the day. Plug in or connect via USB, no need to leave devices on desks or in corridors, and no excuses for flat batteries.
  3. They’re secure
    Electronic, barrel and key or RFID, whatever suits you, and your Facilities Management team. All locking solutions come with central controls and override options.
  4. They’re colourful
    With thousands or door and carcass colour combinations you can customise your workspace or co-ordinate it with your brand or to fit team personalities.
  5. They’re multitasking
    Choose double height for hanging coats or stowing cabin bags. Choose easy to access drawers at ground level to avoid the ungainly squat. Choose planter tops for relaxing greenery. Choose to use banks as space dividers for extra working areas. Choose adding counter tops and power for additional meeting places. Choose postal slots. Choose picture frames or business card holders. Choose whatever works for your business.Take a closer look:

Bisley filing cabinets – choice at every price point

For metal storage we reccomend Bisley for excellent build quality and user orientated approach to design.  Bisley filing cabinets are still available in the traditional form factor we are all familiar with from 2 drawers to 5, view the range here.  HSI Furniture are Bisley main dealers in Berkshire.

A popular alternative to the traditional filing cabinet are Bisley combination units which combine filing capacity with cupboard storage for stationary etc. One advantage of these units is that they pertrude less than a traditional cabinet and sit flush with other Bisley storage such as tambours, bookcases and cupboards providing an neat and uncomplicated office space.

Bisley filing cabinets

These combination units are available in multiple configurations to suit your needs, get in touch to discuss your storage needs.
