Our cartons come in a huge range of styles and board grades. In this section we are giving you a quick guide as to what is on offer to help you refine your own requirements.
Please provide any measurements required as internal dimensions in the following order;
- Length (L) x Breadth (B) x Height (H)
- Length (L) = the longer dimension at the opening
- Breadth (B) = the shorter dimension at the opening
- Height (H) = the dimension from the top of the opening to the base
a) Single Wall Board
Board made from one layer of fluting sandwiched between two liners. There are many different flutes depending on what you require.
A fine flute used for corrugated ‘cartons’. It gives excellent crush resistance and compression strength better than solid fibreboard.
By far the most widely specified flute profile thanks to its superb robustness (difficult to crush), good compression strength and compactness which minimises storage space.
A larger flute than “B”, offering greater compression strength, but it may be crushed more easily. It also takes up more storage space than “B” flute. the most widely specified flute profile thanks to its superb robustness (difficult to crush), good compression strength and compactness which minimises storage space.
b) Double Wall Board
Board made from two layers of fluting sandwiched between three liners. Different flutes may be combined in this board. Used when stronger boxes and extra padding are needed. Excellent for stacking heavy items.
A combination of two flute sizes, usually “B” and “C”, specified when compression strength is more important than storage space and robustness.
Standard Carton Style Guide
The range of carton style is vast allowing you to have a carton produced that is fit for any purpose. We have given examples of the most common here, however there are a greater range of options.
Consist of basically one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers joint and top and bottom flaps. They are shipped flat, ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided.
Boxes consist of more than one piece and are characterised by a lid and/or bottom telescoping over the body of the box.
iii)Folder-type boxes and trays
Usually consist of only one piece of board, generally known as Die Cut Cases. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs.
We have a full in-house design and sample making service. We use the latest CAD technology enabling us to design and pack your products from scratch or even re-design existing packs to save you time and money.
We are able to design new artwork, simply re-draw existing logos or scan almost any media to provide you with the finished result you want.
