Detailed information on Correx® plastic gable boxes
Correx® gable boxes – effectively an all-in-one carry box with an integral handle and self-locking base – are arguably the most versatile of any Correx® box.
Often used as a gift box for added value retail packaging (i.e. where the end-user retains the pack for ongoing storage of the product), you can even use them for the safe transit of samples or even in the storage of specialist tools and equipment. These carry boxes are also often used for food delivery (similar to the Correx® moped boxes)
Besides this, as the Correx® material used to manufacture these plastic gable boxes does not shed fibres and – crucially – is easy to clean, their use is commonplace in medical and clean room settings.
Applications of this type can include use for the safe transport of samples, clinical waste, or even in veterinary surgeries. With air holes, you can also use these for transporting small pets and wildlife.
Their durability and longevity also ensure that your business can reuse your Correx® gable boxes many times (typically well over 100 uses) and benefit from considerably improved protection compared to corrugated cardboard packaging.

As with the majority of Correx® boxes available, you can specify and choose from a wide range of custom options when sourcing your plastic carry boxes.

You can also customise the inside of your carry boxes.
Interior options can include removable divider sets that help separate items during transit, minimising damage. Foam lining and inserts can also be specified to hold items in place and add cushioning protection.

What are gable boxes?
Gable boxes are effectively a carry pack (similar to Correx® briefcase boxes) with integral handles. The closure for the boxes is also fully integrated, with two slits that allow you to push through tabs to secure the contents. They also typically feature a self-locking “envelope” base (similar to crash lock boxes) that requires no glue or tape.

Printed gable boxes can be an excellent option for your business. Your carry boxes can include your logos and branding, handling instructions, product details, and even warnings or health and safety info. You can typically add print through simple screen or direct digital print methods.
Why should I use Correx® instead of cardboard gable boxes?
You should consider Correx® gable boxes for applications requiring increased strength, durability or longevity.
