Containers with dividers
Plastic handling trays and containers with integral divisions
It is possible to tailor integral dividers to provide greater strength and rigidity. Being a part of the outer container also means they are less likely to be lost or damaged as you cannot remove them from the tray or tote box. GWP can also manufacture your divider trays to your exact requirement (in terms of sizing, configuration etc.). Read more

More info on integral dividers
It is common to manufacture most division sets (and indeed plastic inserts for handling containers) as a standalone unit. Doing so means you can remove them from the tray or box in which they are used. Removable dividers also provide a good deal of flexibility and make it easy to replace the inserts should they become obsolete or damaged.
However, this flexibility can limit the potential for increased strength. It can also result in higher up-front costs as there can be separate tooling charges for the outer tote and dividers (if using Correx®).
Integral dividers can be a good solution if these issues are significant to your business.
Trays with integral dividers also allow for enhanced strength and durability (i.e. the walls can be made more rigid) and can also reduce the upfront costs.
It can also mean that you can easily remove any tray with dividers from another outer container. And it enables using numerous layers within a single container (unlike standard adjustable divisions). Effectively, the unit can be used as a standalone tray or as part of a larger system.
Why use totes and trays with integral dividers?
Advantages include improving the handling efficiency and productivity of your staff, increased safety (employees cannot overload the containers) and minimising damage by preventing the movement of parts during handling.
The durable nature of the Correx® material used to manufacture containers with dividers provides further benefits too. It ensures any totes or trays you use are long-lasting, easy to clean, waterproof, and resistant to most chemicals, oils etc.
These benefits make plastic trays with integral dividers suitable for a wide range of applications, including vial trays and racks, kitting trays (particularly larger scale ones) and for several industries, including automotive, aerospace and electronics manufacturing.

Common questions regarding integral dividers
If you are interested in using totes or trays with integral dividers at your business, the following questions and answers may be helpful.

What are integral dividers?
Integral dividers involve engineering the internal divisions of a tote or tray into the main construction of the outer tray or container. This type of insert contrasts with standard division sets, which are removable from the outer box (and, in some cases, can be reconfigured).
What are the benefits of using these instead of standard Correx® dividers?
Integral dividers provide several benefits over standard division sets. Whilst less flexible, they can offer higher levels of strength and rigidity. They also allow the tote box or tray to be lifted (with contents) out of another container (although standard divisions are removable, they will not typically hold the product).
Can I specify the size and layout of these dividers?
GWP manufacture any trays with integral dividers you require to meet your specific application. Doing so means you can choose the exact cell size, configuration, height, and format required.
Will these trays with dividers be strong enough for handling heavy items?
The design and manufacture of your totes and trays with dividers allow for specific levels of strength and durability. A designer experienced in using Correx® material can advise on the best solution for your application.
What colours are these totes and trays available in?
The Correx® material used to manufacture your trays is available in various colours (and thicknesses). As standard, options include blue, green, red, yellow, white, silver, and black. Other colours are available subject to order volumes.
Alternative insert options
Enhance your handling containers with a range of inserts and dunnage
Instead of incorporating your Correx® dividers as part of your handling tray or container, there is a range of options for removable dividers and inserts.
