Corrugated plastic stackable boxes A7131
Corrugated plastic stackable boxes are designed to store light products in a packaging that is long-lasting to withstand moisture and handling, with stacking stability but also a low production cost. They are used for storing products with lower or medium weights, and for which no special reinforcement with a frame or protective covers is required.
Dimensions up to approx. 650x450x300 mm. In the case of larger sizes, there is a risk of bending the long walls and the base, and in these cases we recommend plastic or aluminum h-frame boxes.
They can be delivered folded to reduce shipping costs and are assembled by the customer.
Transparent storage boxes A7261 and boxes with stacking corners
Transparent storage boxes are made of PET plastic, and are specially designed to make it easier to check their contents.
Corner boxes can be used for storing products of lower or medium weight, and for which no special reinforcement with frame or protective covers is required.
So the corner solution offers the possibility to safely stack the boxes, but at a lower cost.
Boxes with corners and U frame
These packaging are suitable for applications where is needed an increased strength of boxes, in case of large loads or sizes larger than 600×400 mm, and the stacking of boxes is required. Thanks to the stacking corners and the ‘U’ frame, the boxes are stiffer and have a better resistance when medium and heavy loads are handled.
The maneuvering can be done using the handles which can be open or closed.
Corrugated plastic boxes with ‘U’ frame and stacking corners can be produced in any sizes and for a wide variety of applications, especially for those that involve intensive use.
Corrugated plastic foldable boxes
Corrugated plastic foldable boxes are ideal for storing and transporting larger, atypical products in situations where the projects are carried out over longer periods of time and it is desired to reduce the cost of return transport.
Folding can be done either with the help of special collapsible/ foldable corners or by folding the walls on the base of the box (foldable).
These Akylux boxes can have handles for easy handling, as well.
They can be used with fixed or foldable internal separators, made of various materials compatible with the products placed in boxes.
They are resistant to heavy-duty industrial use for lightweight plastic or foam parts.
Continuous aluminum frame boxes type “H”
The frame mounted above the boxes has the role of giving them rigidity, increased strength and safety when stacking. Also, due to the rigidity of the profiles, the frame protects the boxes from the bending of the side walls.
The corrugated plastic boxes with continuous aluminum frame H type are recommended for medium or heavy loads, or when the boxes are large and need to have a very good rigidity.
Continuous plastic frame boxes
If you want to optimize the weight of the corrugated plastic boxes, but keep their characteristics, the solution is to use a plastic frame.
Even though it is a lightweight material, it is sturdy and also offers increased strength. If stacking is required, this can be done using the ‘h’ profile with an outer safety edge.
Internal dividers can be placed, they can have handles on the short sides, on the long ones or, in the case of long boxes, even on both sides.
FEFCO is the standard of the European Federation of Cardboard Box Manufacturers.
Corrugated plastic FEFCO boxes are the superior alternative to these cardboard boxes.
The advantage of this standard is that all the boxes are delivered in single sheets with markings that help their easy composition by the customer. In general, FEFCO boxes do not need a lid, which is also part of the box.
FEFCO boxes are used by both consumer goods manufacturers and logistics and transportation companies. They can be easily arranged and stored in any open or closed space.
Basically, with the FEFCO alveolar plastic boxes produced by Logimarkt, you can have all the advantages of the FEFCO standard to which are added those of the corrugated plastic:
- much higher impact resistance than cardboard boxes
- resistance to moisture
- can be used on a much wider range of products than the cardboard version which may be unsightly or insufficiently durable in certain situations
- can be reused for a long time, have a much longer lifespan
- by being returnable, packaging costs decrease
- they look much more attractive: they can be customized, they can be produced in different colors, they can print different information, they become a valuable marketing tool
- they can also be used with separators or internal protection
Boxes made of cellular polypropylene (also known as Akylux, Cartonplast, Alveoplast, Duraflex, Triplex, cellular plastic) can be reused several times and are very light in terms of strength. Because they are robust and harder to degrade, they are suitable for long-term applications.
Cellular polypropylene is a 100% recyclable, washable solution (the edges may be welded to prevent water from entering), non-toxic, approved for direct contact with food. In case of accidental combustion, it does not produce or emit toxic gases. Its durable structure makes it suitable for use in most industries, from automotive or agriculture to distribution and retail.
They are packaging for lighter products with atypical shapes and sizes and are an excellent alternative to returnable or reusable packaging. When used for storage, they are the perfect alternative to cardboard boxes (no matter how thick the walls are).
Alveolar plastic can have various colors and the surface can be easily printed, without degrading the material, through various techniques such as screen printing, flexoprinting, hot stamping, becoming an important marketing tool for customers.
It can also be made of ESD (conductive, dissipative) material or VCI can be treated to protect the contents against rust.
Boxes can have the following options:
- comply with a specific FEFCO code
- plastic or aluminum frames
- added ‘U’ type frames and corner or ‘h’ frames
- internal separators, custom made
- front access type storage boxes
- laminated inside with non-woven anti-scratch material (Tyvek, Evolon, Royal Fabric, Softforce fabric, etc.) or with technical foam (Eva foam, XLPE Foam, XPE, EPE Foam), the role of it being to prevent scratching the parts, and to increase the level of protection against vibrations in case of sensitive products.
- various accessories such as closed or open plastic handles, label holders, stacking brackets, attached or removable covers, ventilation holes
- welded edges to prevent water from entering (they have the advantage that they can be washed and sanitized)
- ESD or VCI properties
Sheets - possible thicknesses and densities of corrugated plastic
The strength of the corrugated plastic is given by the thickness and density of the material. The maximum standard thickness of a sheet is 11 mm, but multilayered sheets which can reach greater thicknesses, can be produced upon request.
