In any office, some documents need to be handy at any given moment. Yes, these documents could be filed away in large filing cabinets, but this would be a waste of time and energy since we know will be using them soon. A wall file rack in an office, reception area or waiting room is perfect for those documents we want to keep within easy reach.

An advantage of wall-mounted racks is that they take up no valuable floor space. There are some models that rest on a desk, but these take up desk “real estate”. Both the floor and the desk models have an advantage, though: there is no installation involved.
