Elba-Clic / Lever arch file mechanics

Discipline: Product

ELBA-Clic is an entirely new designed mechanical system for arch lever files. Instead of conventional metal arches and punched sheet metal, Clic consists of a plastic body, which improves ergonomics and operating safety significantly. For an easy use the binder is opened and closed by pushing down the lever. Also, safety was improved in the way that the fingers move away from the moving parts. The mechanics are slanted apart from the paper stack; this improves the accessibility and makes the flipping of paper easier.
