File Bar (product mfg after 5/5/1997)

Hanging folder bar accommodates side-to-side filing of letter, A4 international, and legal-size hanging folders.

Single (1) Hanging Folder Bar, for Specific 30", 36" and 42" Wide Lateral File.

Please confirm your file date of manufacture before your purchase. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact your local dealer. Your local dealer has access to a full range of file folder arms for the full family of Steelcase products

These will fit lateral file cabinets manufactured ON or AFTER 5/5/1997 (date of manufacture is listed on the product label).

How to find your Steelcase cabinet number:

  • On a 5 high lateral file: Open the top door (do not push it back). The label will be on the underside of the top
  • 2-4 drawer lateral file: Open the top drawer to find the label on the left side of the drawer body

2 Steps to help you determine the correct file folder bar:

  • Determine your lateral file's date of manufacture:
    • Open file drawer. If the inside drawer is black, the cabinet was manufactured after 5/5/1997
    • If the inside of the drawer is the same color as the outer cabinet body, the cabinet was manufactured before 5/5/1997
  • Determine your file bar size
    • Measure the full width of the cabinet (not the inside drawer body) and order the corresponding file folder bar size
    • *File bars are determined by the outside width of the file, not by the inside drawer body

Helpful hints:

  • How do you know this is a Steelcase product? Look at the lock on the cabinet! You will see the letters "FR" or "XF" on the lock if this cabinet is a Steelcase product.
  • File bars are ordered by the outside width of the file, not by the inside drawer

My office has 4 steelcase model RLN183661P file drawers. The file bars in them have plastic brackets that hang the metal bars (which have all broken). Would the "File Bar (mfg after 5/5/1997) be a suitable replacement?
