There are an extensive number of benefits in using fire proof file cabinets, and I will try to cover as many as possible to convince you the importance of owning at least one at your home or office. Recognising that fireproof file cabinets do not simply store your paper documents could already change your mind about not owning one.
You can own one of these cabinets for a wide variety of reasons. These cabinets can be used to store several types of files, the legal as well as letter sized ones. Since you are purchasing a few, there is no point wasting the valuable and rather expensive space. In fact, you could literally pack the entire cabinet with all your worldly goods which you wish to keep intact in times of a fire.
Documents that you could keep in them are passports, marriage certificate or divorce papers, social security information, birth or death certificates, home title deeds, home loan document, insurance policies, mortgage papers, stocks and CFD scripts, business partnership legal documents, customers contact lists, precious moments captured in photos, video and digital data documents and much more.
Most fireproof file cabinets have similar look and function and many people see them as more of office equipment than office decor at your home office. That said, you can use them as space dividers instead of the usual shades and partitions. This could literally help you visually and officially divide up your office and your personal home space. This is especially important when you have to make the best of yoru tiny space between home and office.
If you have chosen the metal version of fire proof file cabinets, try using it as a metal board for putting up photos, time schedules, reminders and important messages. If you have a fax machine or printer, you could stack it up at the top of the cabinet as you can then save quite some money as well as space too.
