Dividers are A-Z, 1-5 or 1-31, which will you use?
Dividers Tabs, A-Z Index & Numbered Dividers
Divider tabs come in so many different varieties, it’s sometimes hard to know which ones to order!
The most popular dividers are the 5 part and 10 part coloured divider that are generally used for writing subjects on or leaving blank and using them as markers. These coloured divider tabs are made from a thin card and are not generally used for dividing documents that are used heavily. For heavy duty divider tabs, we suggest Mylar tabs.
White Mylar Divider Tabs
The most popular divider tabs that Octopus supply for medium to heavy usage are the 5 Star basic white mylar dividers. These are made from 150gsm quality white card with reinforced plastic tabs. They will withstand fairly regular use due to the tabs and holes being made stronger. The basic white mylar divider tabs are all printed with numbers from 1-5, 1-10, 1-12, 1-15, 1-20, 1-25, 1-31, 1-50, 1-100 or A-Z. They have a front sheet with an index printed on it for easy reference.
Polypropylene index are a very lightweight divider that are tough and more durable than card and have the added benefit of being wipe clean. They can be used in kitchens or factories where there is moisture or humidity. Polypropylene dividers generally come in the numbered format or A-Z, however there are a small selection of plain tabbed and coloured tabbed indices too.
Customisable indexes are a popular choice for businesses that want their tabs to have the actual categories or subjects printed onto the tabs. The tab labels can be printed on a laser printer or inkjet printer and then fixed to the tabs giving completely customisable dividers that look professional. These special indices are available in 5 part, 6 part, 10 part and 12 part. Using multiple sets can create most tab configurations.
Extra Wide Dividers
An extra wide divider is used in files where punched pockets are used. These are about 12mm wider than normal so that they still protrude even when a punched pocket is used. Most types have an extra wide divider option, but usually only a couple due to them not being as popular as the standard version.
The unpunched dividers is used generally in documents that are being bouns, either by comb or wire. They are unpunched dividers because the dividers will need to be punched with the holes that the rest of the sheets will have, thus the need for them not to have any holes to begin with.
