The Schwab Corp 1000 series vertical fire file cabinet was equivalent to the Schwab 5000. This cabinet was a private label fireproof file for big box stores such as Office Max, Staples, etc. As of February 2010, the 1000 series has been discontinued.

5000 Series vs. 1000 Series
The Schwab 1000 had the same dimensions as the 5000 series. The main differences were the lack of hanger bars, cheaper handles and no follower blocks. These features are standard on any 5000 series cabinet.
Schwab Corp is now owned by Sentry Safe and new model numbers have replaced the older ones.
