There is no previous Guinness world record for the Largest Ring Binder.
Guinness World Records says that the Largest ring binder measured 154.94 cm (5 ft 1 in) high and 112.87 cm (3 ft 8 in) wide when closed, and was manufactured by Impact Enterprises, Inc. (USA) in Las Vegas, NV, USA.
The World's Largest Ring Binder is a functional binder that was manufactured for a customer required to present oversized technical drawings to the military.
The Largest Binder In The World was not manufactured to win a contest. A prototype was submitted to Impact's customer for approval. The prototype was approved, and an order placed for several pieces.
"We have been serving our U.S. and International customers since 1987. Passion drives our innovation while service drives our business. We are challenged to meet the unique product design needs and objectives of our customers," states Bobi Hamilton, President & CEO.
"I was reviewing first and second quarter orders for year 2010 when I came upon this order. I just wondered if anyone had ever manufactured a functional ring binder close to this size. After a few moments, Guinness Book of World Records came to mind, and I pursued it," says Salisbury.
In order to comply with Guinness World Records submission requirements, Impact Enterprises had a Notary Public present, a reporter from a local newspaper, a professional photographer, two industry professionals who could verify the functionality of the subject ring binder, a local real estate developer to take accurate measurements, and a representative from the office complex where the event occurred, all gather together at 6550 S. Pecos Road, Las Vegas.
