Complete Buying Guide for Blueprint Hanging Rack and Other Products

Blueprint storage is nothing without easy access and is what makes Big Blueprint Hanger’s storage system innovative. Our blueprint hanging rack, the foundation of our space-saving solutions for oversized documents, offers accessibility, functionality, efficiency, and affordability.

We understand that equipping your office with the right storage could be daunting since we have a fair amount of variety in stock. Without seeing your office set up, it would be difficult to make specific recommendations. So we put this buying guide together to provide you with details of our products and how best they could serve your needs.

The Big Blueprint Hanger Storage System

At half the cost of other clamp systems, Big Blueprint Hanger’s system can store more blueprints in a small amount of space compared to flat-file or pigeonhole storage solutions. Our 24″ blueprint hanging rack can carry up to 20 sets of hangers, with one hanger holding up to 120 sheets. That’s more than 2400 sheets in 24″ of space.

Also, our blueprint hanging racks are easy to assemble, disassemble, and transport.
