Today’s Cube Term: Binder Bin with Lock

A binder bin is a box-like shelf with a door that hangs at the top of a cubicle wall. The binder bin has a horizontal hinge that helps you open the box towards you. Typically people will store big items like large 2” binders, thick user manuals, product samples, or even back-up office supplies in these bins.

The binder bin also has a lock in case important items or personal belongings are stored. This feature does not come standard on most cubicle configurations, but is a very popular and useful accessory that man of our customers purchase for their employees.

You can see an example of a binder bin with lock on our 4′x2′x67″H cubicle model.
