I was concerned about that, too. However, when I looked inside the case, I found that the top of the flatfile is structurally reinforced by a bar that runs across the long dimension, as if the manufacturer anticipated something being on top of the file (though perhaps not a Seal press). I also placed boards across the top (under the press) in the short dimension.
