Fire-Proof Files / File Cabinets by Schwab

Series 5000 Vertical Files

No other form of vital paper record protection is as fail-safe, dependable or convenient as that provided by Schwab's Series 5000 line of fire files. Available in two, three and four-drawer models in both letter and legal sizes, the Series 5000 comes with follower blocks and frames for hanging folders. File interiors can be customized to fit any number of special filing applications and have flexible options such as the drawer-in-a-drawer for check filing or index cards.


  • 26" of front-to-back filing space
  • UL Class 350 - 1 hour classification
  • Those rated as Fire Resistant assure protection from temperatures reaching 1700° F for one hour - far greater than the normal business fire
  • Also available as Fire and Impact Resistant so if the file falls through a floor, up to 30 feet, the drawers will not jar open
