I could have phrased that more clearly, sorry. I mean why do you need to put neg pages in to rings? I have more than thirty years of negs, in glassine/paper pages, stored horizontally with no stress on the negs from one corner resting on the bottom of the binder-box. If binders are placed vertically they bend the negs, if they are not placed vertically then one doesn't need any rings to hold the pages - one can let gravity do it.
