Less is more!

Simply reduce the number of folders in the shelf.

The history of the file folder is a success story. One can-and will-not imagine what it would look like in offices without this invention from the year 1886. Today, all of them use it as a matter of course to keep documents, sort them, and always have them under control - whether they are doctors, attorneys, teachers, pupils, office workers, craftsmen or journalists. It is indispensable for a proper storage system. But one thing is surprising then: Why is a file folder always so fast full?

It is not so difficult to manage with fewer file folders - and to place much more documents in it. It is not about a few small percentage points, but a whopping 30 percent, around which the Ordnervolumen can be reduced potentially. The invoice goes however also still further: about one third less folder requirement means also correspondingly less space requirement in the shelf or file cabinet. Just take a tape measure and check how this could impact your office and how many folders you would get on the shelf. Amazing, right?

Documents without flat clinch stapled.

The innovative technical trick that creates this impressive compression effect in folders and shelves is a further development of the conventional interlacing of papers with staples. The technique is called "Flat Clinch" - and the principle behind it is, as usual, surprisingly simple in such cases, but totally awesome: In the "flat clinch" method, the staples are flattened under the leaf, so they no longer To grow up. Take a bulging folder out of the shelf and look closely at how - pardon - "violently" the bulging of the clipped document corners contribute to the total volume of the paper. Such unevenly loaded folders also tend to tilt over. The flat-clinch technique also makes them more stable in the truest sense of the word.

But it is not only in the file folder that it unfolds its effect, but also in the storage system in general. The often extensive paper stacks, which are located in document trays, standing collectors or usually simply on the desk, make a much better impression thanks to the flat-stitching. Because the papers lie flat on each other without arching corners. They also do not come so easily to slip, if you want to quickly pull a document out of the middle of the stack. Real and practical work relief, therefore!

Heavy duty with a Novus Heavy Duty product

And how do you start the slimming diet for your files? The inventor of "Flat Clinch" is the Lingen office specialist Novus, who has already equipped many of his staplers with this technology. For example, the "Heavy Duty" staplers, which make the processing of large paper stacks easy as true power packs with perfectly coordinated leverage. With the NOVUS B 56 block tackifier, you can comfortably and flatten up to 200 sheets at a time. But it may also be much less so: the practical reversing matrix of the NOVUS B 56 allows for a quick change to so-called "bypass stitching". This ensures that even small staples can be stapled with long staples. In spite of different requirements, you do not have to change the brackets all the time. And when we're already at work, the NOVUS B2200 block punch, also from the "Heavy Duty" series, you can punch the big or small paper piles quickly. All this with minimal effort and two- and four-hole perforation.

And what do you do with the space on the shelf? Ok, clear more folders. But there are also alternatives: researchers have found that aquariums have a soothing effect and increase their well-being. And the fact that the more fish swim in it is all the greater. Thanks to "FlatClinch" you have more space - and sometimes more is more!
