Metal vs. Poly Hangers for Blueprints

When organizing the blueprints in your office, there are a lot of options for storage. Using wall hangers to keep your most important paperwork clearly labeled and organized is your best bet. There are two different types of hangers: metal and polyethylene. Each type offers its own unique benefits and each type is used differently. Read on to learn more about metal vs poly hangers and which type is right for your office.

How to Use Our Poly Hangers

A common desk stapler with 1/4″ staples is shown here and works well for most plans and prints. However, a heavy-duty adjustable stapler and longer staples may work better. This depends on the different thickness of your print sets. Get these items at your local office supply store.

Benefits of Poly Hangers

The Big Blueprint Poly Hanger is strong, reusable and inexpensive. Literally 1/3 the cost of other aluminum hangers, they store a lot more blueprints in much less space! Each poly hanger holds up to 50 prints and is made from high-density linear polyethylene. A common, heavy-duty office stapler is all that is required to secure your plan set to the hanger. Just roll the plans up and place them on the poly hanger for easy transportation. It’s that simple.

How to Use Metal Hangers

We designed our durable wide format aluminum clamp type blueprint hangers for quick, hassle-free plan changes. They are great for active or archived plans.  WF Aluminum Blueprint Hangers are easier to use and better priced than other brands on the market. Our hanger has superior gripping power because the clamp pressure applies directly to the plans themselves, holding them safely and securely.

Benefits of Metal Hangers

Combined with the Big Blueprint Poly-Hanger, these aluminum hangers will maximize the capacity of your blueprint file system, whether archived or work-in-progress.  One hanger can easily hold up more than 60 sheets of paper.  Increase the capacity with our extended post option found under accessories.
