Suspension files come in a range of materials and are produced by many different brands - this guide will help to guide you through the key differences.
The most common products are manilla suspension files - these are strong and very cost effective, especially when bought in large packs. They usually come with the tabs and card inserts provided - you can check this on the product description.
There are also a large number of plastic suspension files which are extremelly strong as they are manufactured from polypropylene and will weather better than the manilla suspension files, this is however reflected in the prices. The products come in a range of colours and are available in both v-base and square base plastic suspension files.
Our range of Esselte suspension files are made from enhanced strength kraft paper which is like a thick manilla material. The material is extremelly difficult to rip - we have tried! They also have a wrap over bar designed to protect fingers from cuts and scratches.
The largest supplier of suspension files is Twinlock. Twinlock suspension files come in manilla and polypropylene and also they have both vertical and lateral suspension files. Twinlock suspension files also come in a range of colours and sizes (mainly A4 and Foolscap) and they also do both square base files and v-bottom suspension files.
Rexel Crystalfile suspension files are predominantly made from polypropylene and are a great specialist range of suspension files. They come in both square base and v-base forms. They come with the plastic tabs and little cards included. The square base files can each hold up to 150 sheets of paper. The Rexel Crystalfile range are high quality products and are therefore priced accordingly. if you are looking fo a good budget option then our 5 Star range should meet your needs nicely.
