Wooden Boxes – Understanding the Styles
Did you know that there are a variety of Wooden Box styles you can choose from? We’d like to give you a hand and explain the options available. Take a look over the styles we've listed below and see which one you feel will suit your application best. You're not limited to what we've listed so don't hesitate in speaking to us if you don't see what you need.
Wooden Cases are fully enclosed boxes with no gaps. This is an ideal option when you need the contents of your export to be completely protected. Whether it’s for security or protection a closed in case will tick all of the boxes you need. We manufacture these from Softwood, Plywood, LVL as well as a combination of materials.
Wooden Crates (aka Skeleton Crate) has gaps of 10mm or more. The gap size can be determined by the customer’s needs and will vary depending on the application. Sometimes a crate is more about providing a frame around the product before it’s shipped for export, so minimal material is needed for sides and ends, leaving the core structure in the base to support the goods.
Fruit crates are generally non industrial related. These crates vary in size and style depending on the application. Traditionally they have gaps and no lid on them, but we’re able to manufacture without gaps and include a lid if needed. When it comes to fruit crates the material options will vary depending on the overall look you’re going for, but it needs to be said that all of our fruit crates have a rustic industrial look so we can’t help if you need them pretty and polished.
Plywood boxes are the number one option when it comes to airfreight. Not only can you avoid ISPM 15 Certification, it also makes for a lighter box, thus reducing your airfreight costs.
The overall weight of the box is much less than getting something produced in softwood. This also makes plywood the best solution for tradeshow cases so that they’re easy to wheel around exhibition halls and protect your displays.
Needless to say the options are endless and everything we do is custom made to suit our customers applications. So whatever your Wooden Box needs are, get in touch with our team today.
