An Ulrich Planfile or Planfile 2 holds as many drawings as six – five drawer flat file sections.
This seems too good to be true! We accomplish this through the use of our unique compression system. By using 4 rows of conical springs on each of 15 internal pockets, this system maintains bilateral pressure that holds the documents flat, smooth and in place. Reducing the space required for storage. Pressure remains at the same gentle level even at maximum capacity.
Fabric webbing closes the bottom of the 15 internal pockets. This webbing gently grips the bottom of the folder preventing the possibility of documents curling, thereby preventing document damage.
On the top of each of these pockets is a hanger bar. We have added Delrin rollers at the end of each hanger bar which allow them to shift freely. Whether you have just begun to load the Planfile or are reaching maximum capacity. This free movement makes removal and inspection of documents simple, easier and fast. And the rollers ensure gentle even compression.
Built-in Fire Protection
Double wall construction combining fire resistant insulation with dead air space, providing nearly 5 to 7 times more fire protection than is available from the competition.
Controlled testing has indicated this system can withstand extended temperatures of up to 550° F for at least 1 hour with the contents of the cabinet remaining at temperatures generally regarded as safe for documents.

Planfiling Vertical Filing Convenience
Simply draw the folder up and forward at a 45° angle, lay back unwanted documents, and glide out the one you want or file a new one.
Vertical filing eliminates the awkward removal and re-filing of documents that is inherent to flat drawer storage.

7.5″ Reinforced Folder Hem
The hem is designed to extend well below the tops of the documents in the folder.
Overlapping of folder hem and documents allows the document to share the rigidity of the hem. This promotes better control and makes re-filing easier.
