Did you know that 12th March is designated as ‘Organise Your Home Office Day’?
It recognises the huge growth in home offices, and not just for self-employed people. As more businesses recognise the importance of flexible working for employees, many professionals also work from a home office on a regular basis. And home offices aren’t just for your day job either, they’re also used by homeowners as a space to do personal paperwork, online research and store important household documents. Like every office or home study, it can get a bit cluttered over time and making sure that secure document storage practices are in place can get overlooked.
So, on ‘organise your home office day’ we’ve got a few product ideas that could help you to declutter your home office and introduce secure document and data storage solutions to organise your work space.
Burton Fire Resistant Filing Cabinets
The ‘paperless office’ concept would be ideal but isn’t always possible in practice. Sometimes you simply need to store hard copies of documents and brochures in an easy-to-find location. These filing cabinets come in 4 sizes with 1 to 4 drawers and are certified to provide fire resistance for up to 60 minutes for paper documents, making secure document storage a reality. They’re available with a key lock or an electronic locking system and are designed to suit A4 documents and foolscap files. Burtons Fire Resistant Filing Cabinets start at £567.60 (inc. VAT). Chubbsafes, Phoenix Safes and Securikey also provide filing cabinets for secure document storage. View our full range of fireproof filing cabinets.
Charvat Security Cabinets
A lockable security cabinet is an alternative solution which may be useful, depending on what you need to store in your home office. These security cabinets have the flexibility of adjustable shelving to suit the contents and can be anchored to the floor to prevent them from being removed or from toppling over. Charvat’s security cabinets offer secure document storage for paper records and have a cash rating of up to £2,000 or £20,000 for valuables and jewellery. They also have a 3 way locking system with 3 inter door bolts, one top and one bottom and a solid double bitted key lock. You can store all of your personal and work documents, data and valuables in one location. They also contain a fire resistant material under A1 class. Various other leading brands also offer security cabinets for secure document storage. View our full range of security cabinets.
