Alera LA523629BL 36 by 19-1/4 by 29-Inch 2-Drawer Lateral File Cabinet – Solidly built.

I needed a sturdy filing cabinet with lots of space, that also accommodated legal sized documents. It’s exactly what i wanted, and it looks good in our office too :).

Wonderful side and good price. The delivery guys were great also.

Better quality than a higher priced competitor. I will definitely be ordering more of these.

  • Quality Lateral File
  • Solidly built.
  • Beats the competition

Fairly lightweight and flimsy. Not sure i would get this one again. I guess that is a big fat average.

Very nice cabinet and very good quality. The black finish is excellent.

I ordered the 36 inch lateral file cabinet, and it is fine except for one thing — it does not come with metal file dividers like all other file cabinets i have purchased (new and used). I have been trying to find metal dividers to order, and so far have not found them. Had i thought about this before ordering and asked about this, i would not have ordered this file cabinet.

Solid file cabinet, made well.

Arrived promptly and in perfect condition. It fulfills my needs perfectly. An excellent buy with a fair price.

I’ll confirm what the other positive reviews have said: solidly built, looks nice, drawers slide very well. I needed to use a hammer to refashion a tab on one of the file hangers in order to get it to fit, but no big deal. If you’re curious, the extra weight is in the file cabinet itself (in the back, to prevent tipping) not in the drawers.

Just what i was looking for.

Just one solid file cabinet, looks great too , easy to use adjustable hanging file rods, two keys for locking the doors.

The description of this file didn’t reveal all of the quality components built into this unit. The drawers slide very smoothly. There’s a heavy ballast so the unit won’t tip forward no matter how much material you place toward the front. Levelers were easy to adjust and work nicely on hard floors or soft. This unit weighs about 130 pounds and come via freight so you’ll need two people to move once inside your house.

A meaty file cabinet that easily holds full drawers of heavy folders.

    Lateral files are expensive and you get what you pay for. The drawer portion and locking mechanisms are very cheap. The locks are not meant to actually withstand an actually break-in, they are merely a deterrent. A little pressure and anyone could pop open the drawer and cheap locking mechanism. If these items are on an uneven floor, they will distort the whole cabinet.
