Lever arch files are a highly effective way of keeping your documents and files properly organised. With plastic sleeves and dividers compatible with their rings, you can enclose and separate out your paperwork for your ease.

What is a lever arch file?
A lever arch file is a type of A4 folder used to organise paperwork in your business. The clasps at the central fold of the files have two rings which open up via a lever (hence the name ‘lever arch’). Hole-punched paper and plastic wallets are then able to be slotted over these rings when they open and then clasper shut again, creating a binder that you can then flip through.
How tall is a lever arch file?
Lever arch files tend to come in sizes that can accommodate A4 pieces of paper and plastic wallets, though naturally they are a bit bigger than these measurements to best protect the edges of your documents lest they become dog-eared. A4 lever arch files tend to come in the standard measurements of 7.5cm x 31.5cm, so they can easily accommodate paperwork.
How to organise a lever arch file
First, you need Punched Pockets. These allow you to bundle the same documents or sections together so you can keep everything together. These are particularly useful for projects, multi-sheet document packs, and numerous loose yet related items. If you choose not to use these punched pockets or plastic file sleeves, then you definitely need a Hole Punch on your desk so you can still file away documents and store them in your lever arch files. Then, use File Dividers to separate the sections. These are handily coloured with descending tabs on each sheet so you can label up your sections and skip straight to the area you need.
How to store lever arch files
Because lever arch files can be a little bulky due to their need to protect documents, they may be cumbersome to store. Luckily, at Ryman Business we offer dedicated Lever Arch Files Storage options that fit into any modern office or school environment. Purpose-designed to accommodate these files, you won’t need to worry about finding a home for these folders if you don’t already have a shelving unit ready for them. We also offer other Office Storage options, such as multidrawer cabinets, filing cabinets, and bookcases should you need extra space.
