Corstat Stacking Totes

Stacking totes save space, time and costs without sacrificing performance and reliability

Corstat Stacking Totes offer a versatile and flexible solution for any ESD safe handing or storage purposes. They are constructed from the market leading Corstat conductive fibreboard and are available from stock in a variety of sizes.

 

Your totes can also be customised through the addition of anti static divisions. The standard divider sets work seamlessly with your totes and can be configured to your specific requirements. The end result is light-weight and cost effective protection against physical damage and static charges. And if a stock size isn’t 100% perfect, you can specify custom size / design.

Key reasons you should use Corstat Stacking Totes

Corstat Stacking Totes provide a number of advantages over similar products, helping you reduce costs and improve efficiency. Please use the links below if you would like to go to your specific area of interest.

 

Reliable handling with guaranteed ESD safe performance

Corstat Conductive stacking totes are a widely used, flexible solution for in plant component handling and storage when ESD protection is required.

 

Fabricated using the market leading Corstat conductive fibre board, they are available from stock, in a range of standard sizes.

 

Of course, being manufactured from Corstat ensures that the stacking totes offer your items a guaranteed level of static protection. This in turn reduces the amount of damaged stock that has to be written off, the number of customer returns and ultimately reduces your costs whilst improving the perception of your company.

Anti static totes

Your stacking totes can also be customised through the addition of standard anti static divisions that can be configured to suit your specific application. By creating a network of cells, it also allows you to efficiently move multiple items in a single tote, whilst minimising movement and therefore physical damage.

 

When you combine all of this, the result is a light weight, cost effective alternative to conventional injected moulded products, whilst still providing a high degree of static protection.

Features promoting ease of use and protection

  • Benefits from high conductive performance offered by Corstat material
  • Compatible anti-static divisions can be used for further versatility and efficiency
  • Sturdy construction and option of lids provides high levels of protection for contents
  • Can be further enhanced with anti static / conductive foams

Ways Stacking Totes improve efficiency in your warehouse operations

There are a number of ways in which Corstat stacking totes can improve the efficiency – and therefore productivity – associated with your handling processes.

 

Firstly, the totes can be easily and safely stacked. The durable construction ensures that crushing / compression of lower totes is avoided, whilst the reinforced stacking tabs ensure that the stacked totes remain secure and safe.

 

The ability to stack the totes helps to minimise the storage space required in your factory / warehouse, which in turn can have an indirect effect on costs / efficiency. Further to this, the totes can also be supplied flat, which again reduces storage space when not in use, and the initial delivery costs also.

The light weight of the totes ensures they are easy to handle, whilst the inset handles also help with manually moving the totes around your premises.

 

Finally, you can also choose to have custom printing on the exterior of the totes. Whilst this can obviously include your company logo for ongoing brand awareness, you can also choose to add instructions, part numbers or even handling guidelines to assist the end users.

Key ways your productivity / efficiency can be improved

  • Can be supplied flat-packed saving on initial transit costs and storage space
  • Easily stacked and organised, with reinforced high impact polystyrene stacking tabs
  • Inset handles for comfortable and safe handling
  • Exterior print can add instructions, part numbers etc.
  • Light in weight to aid manual handling
Corstat Stacking Totes offer an incredibly versatile and flexible solution for your handing or storage requirements. The high quality Corstat conductive fibreboard material ensures that high levels of protection and performance are guaranteed.

Cost effective without sacrificing performance

Cost savings can often be a factor in deciding what product to use for your handling requirements. And whilst minimising damage and improving efficiency rank highly on areas to target when attempting to reduce costs, Corstat stacking totes can save you money in other ways too.

 

For example, the range of standard sizes eliminates the need for tooling charges. When coupled with the Corstat material, this can mean a significantly lower unit cost than Corriplast or moulded plastic alternatives.

It may be the case however that specifying a custom size can be more cost effective in the long run. Whilst the tooling cost will affect unit price, if you are shipping or storing lots of assembled totes, by minimising wasted space within the container through custom sizing, you can realise significant cost savings.

 

Corstat is also surprisingly durable. Whilst the lifespan is obviously shorter than plastic equivalents, they can usually be re-used numerous times. This further reduces their “lifetime” costs.

 

This also means Corstat is the most suitable choice if you are looking for single trip packaging. Besides being priced to allow for this, they can also be easily recycled by the recipient / end user.

 

All of this adds up to ensure that Corstat stacking totes are a great choice regardless of your application, products or the market you operate in.

Ways Corstat Stacking Totes can help you reduce costs

  • Standard sizes available from stock, eliminating tooling charges
  • Minimal lead times, usually within 48 hours
  • Custom designs and sizes available on request
  • A cost effective yet durable alternative to injection moulded alternatives
  • Protection of your items helps to reduce cost of returns / damaged stock
  • Gains in efficiency / productivity can also help dive profitability

Computer Shipping Boxes – Safe Transit, Storage and Handling

Also sometimes referred to as computer shipping boxes, the stacking totes you can source from GWP Conductive have been specially designed to ensure the safe storage, handling and shipping of laptops, desktop towers and practically any computer peripheral available today.

 

As well as providing physical protection (particularly when specified with foam inserts) they also protect from static charges – proven to shorten the lifespan of various electronic components, CPUs and processors.

Computer shipping boxes

Particularly useful for companies or individuals refurbishing computers, EBay and Amazon sellers or even large companies with an inventory of used devices, the anti-static computer shipping boxes and storage totes offer a high performance, cost effective way of protecting against ESD (electro static discharge).

 

Whilst Corstat stacking totes are usually ideal for larger items, for smaller devices you may find Corstat transit packs more suitable. Alternatively, get in touch for a quote on ESD shipping boxes tailored to your exact requirements.
