Foolscap: Foolscap is the most popular size, slightly bigger for more comfortable storage of A4 paper. It leaves 25mm of extra room at the top and bottom of an A4 page (allows for any mis-punched paper and can be filed more easily in a lateral filing system).

Yes - we can produce rails to fit all types of storage.  Please contact our sales department on 01704 222100 for further details regarding measurements and costings.

On the whole we do not use recycled board as it is not as strong as board made from virgin pulp.  It is our view that it is more environmentally friendly to produce one file that will last than to expend energy producing inferior files that will not.  All our board is produced from well managed forests that meet the PEFC standards.


We try and deliver standard files to you within 4 working days of you placing the order, although often we do better.  If the delivery is going to be longer than 4 days or the order is for specially manufactured product, we will let you know.

Yes there are standard shipping charges available on line for Isle of Man, Isle of Wight and Northern Ireland at present.

We will contact you with a carriage and handling price for any other offshore island, for your approval.
