A plan chest is a large format chest of drawers made from either wood or metal. They are usually designed to hold A0 or A1 size documents such as paper, plan drawings or card. Drawings are stored flat in wide horizontal drawers which are enclosed on the sides and slide on low friction runners.
This type of furniture is commonly found in drawing offices or school art studios where filing and grouping large format documents together is critical.
