The heavy duty shipping carton doesn’t have a distinctive shape like the more specialised cartons. Each option available has a longer length when compared to the width and height, while there are some sizes where the height is a taller dimension than the width which is helpful for tall and narrow items.
What is this carton used for?
Heavy duty shipping cartons are made from cardboard that has double wall fluting; essentially they are twice as sturdy as normal cardboard. This makes the boxes suitable for shipping and storing heavy items or as an added measure for protecting fragile items. The stiffer walls also increase the stability of pallets and packed items for added safety during storage and transit.
How many sizes are available?
There are 9 sizes of heavy duty cartons available. The smallest size is 281mm x 184mm x 280mm (length x width x height) while the largest size is 610mm x 457mm x 452mm.
