FlatCrate Multi-Panel Paperboard
Laminations®, a part of Great Northern Corporation, has introduced FlatCrate™, a multi-panel engineered paperboard product that can be easily folded into a u-shaped crate or self-contained shipping container in a variety of geometric shapes for superior product protection.
“FlatCrate fills the need for protective packaging that folds easily and quickly to accommodate a wide variety of products and configurations,” said Bill Faster, Vice President, Sales. “FlatCrate also ships flat, saving space and money during transport and storage, and is 100-percent recyclable.” FlatCrate’s five panel sides have a layered paper construction that adds strength and creates channeled hinges with voids that enable precision folding and wrapping.
The flat, recyclable substrate can be die cut, glued, perforated and custom printed to meet unique application needs. FlatCrate is manufactured in widths of 4 to 33 inches and lengths of 12 to 300 inches, with custom sizing also available. The panel width minimum is 3/4 inch with options for full or partial panel overlap. Standard caliper options range from .060 to .200 inches. Finish choices include white clay coat, kraft liners, poly or ScuffShield™. “Like all of our engineered solutions, FlatCrate is supported by Laminations’ industry-leading reputation for innovation and superior customer service,” said Faster. “Our packaging engineers and sales representatives work closely with customers to identify their packaging needs and create customized solutions that are built to the industry’s highest standards of quality, precision and consistency.”
