On the desktop, any employee alwaysthere are a lot of papers. Each of them is a document that contains certain information. It can be required at any time, and the employee must know exactly where to find it. To do this, all documents must be classified according to the main characteristics (type, purpose, timing of execution) and stored separately in accordance with them. It is for this purpose that the folder-folder is intended.
Invented this simple device in the 19th centuryGerman employee. The history of creation is extremely simple. The worker was terribly tired of the situation when everything on the table is constantly falling apart. In order to find a particular document, you have to turn over a bunch of other, unnecessary papers. And then a wonderful thought occurred to him: "What if all the letters, forms, invoices, contracts are placed in separate piles and fixed there with a special device?" This simple thought served as an impetus for creating the first folder with the simplest mechanism inside. The principle of action, like all ingenious, is simple. The device was a bracket, on which the documents were "stringed" one by one. The paper was pressed against the paper. She had to hold the edge of the sheet. It had small clamps that wrapped the edges of the staple so that the documents seemed to be "sewn" to the folder. Clamps could be weakened at any time and get the right document. So, no one known clerk from Germany helped reorganize the work of clerical employees around the world. And the inventor himself, the folder-folder helped in the future. He was able to become the owner of his own company and move to live in the capital.
In a short time, the folders already lay on the tables of all office employees. Workers quickly realized their advantages:
- Protection of documents against contamination and various types of mechanical damage.
- Address storage of business papers.
- Fast collection and retrieval of documents.
