How Many Titles Can I Fit In a Music Filing Unit

First, determine the amount of lineal filing inches available.  For instance, a 36" wide x 7 level high system (MFS368812) has a capacity of 252 inches (36 X 7).

Next divide those inches by the average thickness of each selection.  At an average thickness of 1 inch, you could fit 250 titles in the system unit.  At an average thickness of 1/2", 500 titles would fit.  Most bands will have an average thickness between 1/2" to 3/4".  So your number will probably come in between 350 and 400 titles per unit.


We are still loving our Music Filing System. The amount of space it has saved us has been amazing.
