The Schwab Series 2500 Vertical fire file gives you all the standard features of our larger 5000 series in a space saving and budget saving cabinet. Like all Schwab Corp insulated filing cabinets, these files have passed the fire, explosion and impact tests from Underwriter's Laboratories.

Once you’ve made the wise decision to protect your business with fire resistant filing, why settle for less than the best! Since 1872 Schwab Corp. has been the leader in protecting the valuable records of businesses and residential customers world-wide. All Schwab Series 2500 Vertical Files come backed by an Underwriters’ Laboratories Class 350-1 hour fire resistance label.

Our Series 2500, 25” deep vertical files provide maximum filing capacity for your valuable records. While standard equipped with a plunger key lock, a variety of locking options are available to accommodate your individual security needs.

The 2500 Series vertical file is available in 2- and 4- drawer models, in both legal and letter sizes, with six attractive, glossy, smooth finish, standard colors to choose from. In addition, any color you specify can be custom mixed to enhance your office or home office décor.

Hanger bars are a standard feature in all Series 2500 files to accommodate hanging file folders. What’s more, the Schwab design makes these hanger bars adjustable in the legal size model to allow for filing of legal, A-4, folio or letter size files in the same cabinet without the need for additional costly accessories, so you get the most versatility for your filing needs!

Rated to protect your vital business records, Schwab Series 2500 Fire Rated Vertical Files have been built to exceed the stringent UL label requirements for the following tests:

  • A one hour test for fire resistance in external temperatures exceeding 1700°F.
  • A 2000°F explosion hazard resistance test.

Schwab Series 2500 Fire and Impact Rated Vertical Files have been built to exceed the stringent UL label requirements for the following tests:

  • A one hour test for fire resistance in external temperatures exceeding 1700°F.
  • A 30 foot drop impact-resistance test in addition to a 1550°F fi re resistance test.
  • A 2000°F explosion hazard resistance test.

All Schwab Series 2500 Vertical Fire Rated Files are additionally UL rated to survive an explosion hazard test, and all Schwab Series 2500 Vertical Fire and Impact Rated Files are UL rated to survive a fall of over 30 feet and still keep its contents safe from fire.These tests prove that the Schwab file is built to protect in the face of any disaster. Available with either a fire and impact resistance rating or a fire resistance rating only, Schwab is committed to offering you yet another choice that best suits your particular needs.

Schwab’s Insulite™ insulation is the most efficient on the market today. Thicker insulation doesn’t always mean better insulation. Insulite™ allows all Schwab files to offer features like thinner walls, lighter weight and recessed handles without compromising fire protection. This enables the Schwab design to maintain a look that is aesthetically pleasing without sacrificing its protective ability.

All fire resistant insulation requires water in order to prevent the spread of fire. Insulite™, Schwab’s trademarked air-dried insulating composite’s water is chemically bound. This means our insulation contains no free water. The competitor’s oven dried insulation has a small amount of free water, which can evaporate over time, thus losing it’s protective ability. Insulite™ contains no asbestos and NEVER dries out or loses its protective ability over time, so breathe easy—you, your vital records, and your environment are protected with a Schwab fire proof filing cabinet.

Each drawer is individually encased by its own inner steel drawer vault that not only aids in preventing dusting insulation from contaminating your records, it also helps to eliminate the spread of fire from one drawer to another. This feature also prevents entry from an unlocked compartment to a locked one. Schwab’s unique seamless design provides further protection against otherwise undetected forced entry.

IT’S OUR GUARANTEE

Our after-the-fire free replacement guarantee lets you know that once you have made the investment in a Schwab file, we will be there even if disaster strikes. We stand behind it, and have for over a century.

Fire, and Explosion Rating

The Schwab Series 2500 vertical file has met Underwriters’ Laboratories stringent requirements for the classification of ‘Record Protection Equipment.’ This includes a test for fire-resistance in external temperatures exceeding 1700°F for one hour, and a 2000°F explosion hazard test.

Insulation

Only Schwab’s premium Insulite insulating composite material, in conjunction with superior manufacturing processes provides unparalleled protection against fire. Insulite, which is poured into the cavity between the steel outer wrapper, and the individual inner steel drawer jackets enables the Schwab design to maintain the same protection with less weight and wall thickness than competing brands.

Drawer Suspensions

Suspensions are sturdy and free-rolling, encased by a supportive outer track. This rugged suspension cradles each drawer allowing for smooth operation over the life of the file.

Drawer Bodies

Each Schwab vertical drawer body allows for the flexibility of accommodating A-4, Folio, Letter, or Legal Filing, without the necessity or expense of additional parts or accessories.

Drawer Heads

Drawer Heads are formed out of a single piece of steel, interlocked and welded at the corners, then poured with our premium Insulite insulation. The Schwab design, with interlocking drawer joints where the drawer head, the outer wrapper and the steel inner drawer vault meet, provides unsurpassed protection from fire.

Lock/No Lock Mechanism

This convenient mechanism allows the user to enable a drawer to stay unlocked while other drawers remain locked.

Recessed Handles

Only Schwab’s recessed handle design provides easily viewed angled label holders without sacrificing fire resistance, or requiring additional clearance for the front of the file.

Colors

Schwab’s six standard colors have been carefully chosen to meet the discriminating tastes of the world’s top designers and decorators:


Standard Colors

They can also be made available in a special color that you specify.

Finish

The Schwab smooth, glossy finish gives the Schwab file a scratch, scuff and stain resistant surface, similar to that found on an upscale automobile.

Lifetime Warranty

Schwab warrants that it will repair or replace any file part manufactured by Schwab that fails in normal use as a result of defects in materials or workmanship free of charge for as long as the original registered purchaser owns the file.

Lifetime Free After-the-Fire Replacement Warranty

In the event this file is damaged by fire while in the possession of the original purchaser as shown on the warranty registration card, Schwab warrants that it will replace the file free of charge.
