Storage boxes

Filed under:
The GRR markets custom-designed boxes for the storage of records including files, rolled maps and plans, cards, accounts and forms. Boxes can also be used for storage of books, museum items, stores, stationery, and many other purposes.

Who can purchase storage boxes?

All boxes are available to any purchasers, not only storage clients of the GRR, although minimum sale quantities do apply.


Prices include free delivery in metropolitan area. Orders to regional areas can be processed if a valid transport or freight company and account number is supplied. Orders should be faxed or emailed - no phone requests taken. (Purchase Orders preferred.)

What is the preferred storage method?

Due to Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) considerations, the recommended box used for records storage in the GRR is the Type 1 (T1) box. Almost all record formats will fit into a T1 box. Records in containers too large for T1 boxes (such as Lever Arch files) should be removed from those containers, tied with tape, and placed in a T1 box. Very large files or bundles of records should be split into parts, tied with tape and put into T1 boxes.
