Sequel Lateral File Cabinet by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly

BDI Sequel Lateral File Cabinet At A Glance:
The Sequel Lateral File Cabinet is, as the name cleverly implies, a sequel to some of the other office system parts in the Sequel series. It's free-standing, and it has a clever and secure opening and closing system, as well as a lock. The lateral file can hold hundreds of letter or legal size files with ease, and look great next to your desk at the same time.

See the entire BDI Sequel Office collection.

What's To Like:
The look of this file cabinet is beyond reproach, and it's one of the few free-standing additions to the Sequel family of furniture. Handsome and useful on its own, it still looks great as part of a team.

What's Not to Like:
Price. For a simple filing solution, this lateral file could be pretty steep for some buyers. Although it does fit perfectly with the rest of the Sequel system.

The Bottom Line:
The Lateral File is a pricey but valuable addition to the Sequel workspace.

The locking Lateral File Cabinet offers secure storage for legal and/or letter-sized files in its two generously sized drawers. For safety, the drawers include interlocking anti-tip hardware, allowing only one drawer to open at a time and a counterweight for stability. Alternate lock and key sets are available separately.

        I just received the file cabinet and it seems that the drawer is locked with no key in sight. What might be the reason for that?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          In some cases, the drawer gets jammed during shipping. To open the drawer, shake it "gingerly" and it should open with the keys inside.
