Delta Airlines was running out of space in their central filing department. They needed a way to secure files and store more in the same amount of space. Integrating mixed media into the storage system was an important goal.
Delta Airline’s Central Filing Department had lateral files that were functional, but just not doing the job. The staff needed more efficiency, higher capacity, and storage that was versatile. However, in an effort to save money it was mandatory that their top tab filing system be retained without conversion to another filing style.
Fifty Times-2 units replaced the old-style lateral system. The new locking, double-sided units provided increased storage. In fact, each 7-Tier Times-2 replaced the equivalent of 3.28 lateral files. Top tab filing was no problem either; the units were accessorized with drawers to accommodate this filing style. Binders and mixed media were stored in the unit’s top shelves as reflected in the photo above. Delta gained security for their confidential files, too: with one spin an open Times-2 closes and locks.
