Super Strong Archive Boxes for End of Financial Year Document Storage
Sick and tired of your flimsy archive boxes collapsing or disintergrating under the weight of your documents or files?
Take a look at our super strong archive boxes. These are ideal for all your document and file storage especially with the end of the financial year just around the corner.
The trick to our archive boxes is the design in the construction. Unlike other lightweight archive boxes that you buy from a bookstore or stationery supplier, our archive boxes are all one piece and do not connect at the base. With extra strong walls these archive boxes are easily stackable and will hold their shape for years to come.
Talk to one of our stores and take one for a test drive or place an order online.
