Flexiform Storage in the Modern Office

During the last 40 years, Flexiform has worked closely with businesses in both the private and public sector. With the experience that we have gained from carrying out numerous storage reviews and audits, as well as working alongside our in-house Interior Designers and Engineers, we have been able to implement our knowledge into our current range of storage products. This has allowed us to expand and adapt accordingly to match the changing market. 

Within an office space, it’s important to consider the personal storage and team storage the client requires, with many clients needing enough storage for large quantities of files and records. With more and more records now being maintained, stored and retrieved online, capacity may no longer be the driving force to review storage systems. However, storing what files and equipment remain in the office efficiently and securely has perhaps never been more important. That is why Flexiform continue to offer comprehensive storage surveys and analysis to ensure that our clients always obtain the most efficient and economical storage system available to them and a system that is suitable to the employees in a working environment.

In the modern office, biophilia has been on trend for the last few years and shows no sign of slowing, with workers enjoying that wooden and natural connection to nature. With this in mind, we have developed our existing storage ranges to accommodate planters to add a touch of greenery in the workplace and promote wellbeing. We have also added a range of natural, textured wood finishes which includes high pressure laminates such as Nebraska Oak and Jackson Pine. Our storage ranges are now available in more colours than ever, having extended our RAL colours to khaki and pastel colours to stay on trend. Domestic and industrial feel workplace furniture is also in trend, and can give that wow factor to the workspace, helping to improve staff efficiency and appeal to new staff. Our in-house Engineers have developed the Credenza range to house a homely and domestic feel within the office space. As well as the Credenza, we have our Ferro range which has an industrial finish for more dynamic office styles.

For clients who require large quantity storage, our Freestor Tambours provide internal storage components to suit all filing requirements whilst still having excellent linear metre capacity. Whilst the contemporary lines of the Jot Lateral Storage range has a retro/cool feel in terms of design and suits all office environments, but the range also delivers class-leading storage capabilities and capacities. With over 60 preconfigured options available to choose from, the Jot storage system covers just about everything. Moreover, with the modern office introducing communal collaborative working, clients can add overhanging tops allowing both Jot and Freestor units to double up as both storage and a place for employees to work.

Additionally, working habits have changed over the past 40 years with the development of agile working, smart working and hot desking. This means that personal storage units also require to be more flexible and secure. Personal lockers are a natural progression of the pedestal as it allows employees to move throughout the office easier, without the need to carry personal belongings. Our Personal Lockers come in a vast variety of sizes, colours, finishes, alongside different locking systems and accessories which can be adapted to suit the clients needs for an open plan, agile working environment. Personal lockers continue to rise in popularity in the office, allowing employees a designated space which they can own and safely store their belongings.

With changes continuing in the modern office, Flexiform will continue to learn and adapt to ensure our storage ranges meet the clients criteria.
