The two pocket-style dividers offer a 1" SafeShield-coated twin-prong fastener and die-cut CD storage pocket on front. Each divider is made of 11 point stock. Folder tab is 2/5 cut.

In my business I research and write white papers for technology companies. Creating a white paper is a complex projects involving many documents and people. I store everything on my computer. But I also need paper copies to work with during during the creation and review process.
Smead's Classification Folders enable me to effortlessly keep my projects under control. I can always find the documents I need quickly. These folders help me to complete my writing projects more efficiently.
The Classification Folder with 3 interior dividers are my favorite. I use a Classification Folder for each writing project. With a fastener at the top of surface, I have 8 interior places to fasten documents. I label each of the side tabs, so I know at a glance where documents should be. When I add a document to a surface, I place a sticky note on the bottom, with the edge extending past the document, and write the name of the document on it. So documents do not get lost.
I also know that when I grab a classification folder for a project, I have ALL of the documents I need. So, I am always able to respond quickly to client questions, even during calls. These folders are very expandable, so they can hold many documents with ease.
I really like the different colors available. I use different folders for different types of documents: green for writing projects, red for administrative matters, etc.
The SAFEShield two prong fasteners at the top of each surface do not cut my fingers when I file papers. This is a great improvement over standard two prong fasteners.
The only downside of these folders is the slightly porous surface, so you must keep your hands oil free if you want the folders to look pristine. From my point of view, the organizational benefits far out weigh this downside.

We use these in a medical office where charts are accessed frequently. Prongs are opend and closed multiple times so we need something that stands up to that. The coated prongs do better than the old ones but the center prongs are shorter and do not hold as much paper filing. The Front and Back prongs since maintained inside and not going through the outer chart piece tend to come off sooner than the previous version and can't be replaced by stand along prongs to prolong the life of the chart.

    Comments about Smead SafeSHIELD Classification Folders with Pocket Dividers:

    These are GREAT folders/dividers/organizers. The construction is durable so that we can use them for many years and they provide multiple locations to categorize different portions of the file. For customers that have contracts/invoices/correspondence that needs to be kept separate these are ideal. It still leaves room for miscellaneous sections that fall outside of the typical contract file. The durability is a huge plus since we typically have customers on a long term basis and organizing their information in a protective file is very important. Great product I would recommend for important paperwork that needs distinct sectioning and longevity.

        We use these for our HR files. They are super sturdy and the tabs are nice and long so we can fit the employee name easily across the section. We have files that are over 9 years old and the folders are holding up exceptionally well! I wouldn't use any other folder for our files!

                These folders are, without a doubt, the best folders to use for employee files. They make it possible to organize the files in such a way that it is very easy to find what you are looking for in the file at any given time. They are durable. We have some that we have been using for 25 years. They are also designed for high capacity allowing me to keep adding to the file for years. I would not ever want to try to use any other kind of folder for our employee files.

                    -has CD holder to store purchases as well as 2 pocket folders for storing Notes. Multi dividers allow for organizing agreements, addendums, acknowledgements, etc.
                    -If I have to pick what is not great, I guess I wish folder width expand just a smidge more than 2".

                          We use these in our law firm practice and they are great. They hold up really well with continued use and the attorney loves the different sections. The attorney can keep everything he needs and there is just the right amount of room for the labels. They also fit really well in trial bags and everyday bags.

                            We use these in a medical office where charts are accessed frequently. Prongs are opend and closed multiple times so we need something that stands up to that. The coated prongs do better than the old ones but the center prongs are shorter and do not hold as much paper filing. The Front and Back prongs since maintained inside and not going through the outer chart piece tend to come off sooner than the previous version and can't be replaced by stand along prongs to prolong the life of the chart.

                                Classification folders are excellent for commercial and residential property management. Files allow each property to have a folder with specific sections for pertinent documents i.e. original lease, insurance, payment history and the like. The only down side for our facility is they can get a little pricey, but still well worth the investment if hard documents are needed and easy to navigate through.
