How many sheets of paper will a Hang-A-Plan Binder hold?

A single Hang-A-Plan Binder will hold 1 sheet up to 150 sheets of paper. Hang-A-Plan Binders have a very strong 3-part clamp design to ensure even continuous grip along the entire length of the clamping mechanism.  An A1 Binder can comfortably hold 150 sheets (standard 80gsm paper) The Binder clamp jaw will open to 25mm.  The Binder Wing nuts / Quick Release Levers only need to be finger tight to hold even 150 sheets.


Please explain the main differences between the Quickfile Plan Binder and the General Plan Binder models

If you find that you add and remove sheets from the binders quite often, the Quickfile binder is your best Plan Binder option.  The Quickfile Binder features Quick Release Levers and a clamp extension sheet guide.  Instead of Standard Wing Nuts, the Quickfile Binder uses Quick Release Levers to instantly open and close the clamp with a click of the lever. The Clamp opening can also still be fine tuned by twisting the lever link a wing nut. The Clamp extension glide allows you to simply place a bunch of sheets on the extension which will easily guide them into the jaw of the clamp.

General Binders are an economical Binder option, best suited for people that use the Hang-A-Plan system as more of a static storage system, without the need to add and remove plan often.  The General Binder uses the same strong 3-part aluminum clamp as the Quickfile binder, but without the Extension Sheet Guide.  It features the same easy open spring loaded anti-jam clamp design and uses wing nuts instead of the Quickfile Binder Quick Release Levers.


Will a Plan Binder hold multiple sheets sizes?

Hang-A-Plan binders use a continues aluminum clamp that will apply the same grip along the entire length of the clamps.  A large A0 clamp can easily hold an A0 size sheet or an A4 sheet.  Many customers use A0 Size binders because they offer the best versatility in terms of holding all sheet sizes.
