Supporting Info

Styles, joints, diagram views and other supporting information

Please see below for supporting information regarding the FEFCO box standards / diagrams highlighted above.

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at GWP so we can help.

Diagram Views

Please note: the layouts of the styles in this code are always viewed from the inside of the case.

Case Dimensions

Unless otherwise specified all dimensions are expressed as internal dimensions in mm as follows:

Length (L) x Breadth (B) x Height (H)
Length (L) = the longer dimension at the opening
Breadth (B) = the shorter dimension at the opening
Height (H) = the dimension from the top of the opening to the base

The dimensions L, B, H are specified in each description of the case construction, for some models the numerical value of B can exceed the numerical value of L. Dimensions should be measured under standard climatic bearing the thickness of the material in mind.

For telescope-type boxes the height (h) of the upper part (lid) should be given as a fourth measurement after an oblique stroke, i.e.

355 x 205 x 120/40 mm

(L)   (B)   (H) (h)

For cases with overlapping outer flaps the length of the area of overlapping (o) should be given as a fourth measurement after an oblique stroke, i.e.

355 x 205 x 120/40 mm

(L)   (B)   (H) (o)

Sheet dimensions

Unless otherwise specified, the dimensions of a corrugated sheet are expressed in mm as follows:

1st dimension x 2nd dimension
1st dimension = along the glue lines
2nd dimension = across the glue lines

Style versions

Several case types may have derived versions without the necessity to create a new style. In this case a suffix should be added to the basic style number, separated by a dash.

Example: 0201-2.

A version may be unique to individual manufacturers.

Combination of types

The construction styles shown are of the basic types of fibreboard cases. If the ultimate construction is a combination of two or three basic models e.g. flap arrangements, they may also be described as follows:

Top flaps 0204, Bottom flaps as 0215

This type may also be described as 0204/0215 (Top flaps. Bottom flaps)

Styles and the manufacturers joint

The drawing style layouts as shown in this Code may need to be re-arranged depending on the Manufacturers Joint chosen. Some styles may have a Manufacturers Joint which may be glued, stitched or taped. A glued or stitched Joint may be an extension of either the short or the long panel.

Manual or Automated erection

Each design style includes one of the following indications:

M – usually manual erection
A – usually automated erection
M/A – can be either manual or automated M+A – requires a combination of both

These indications are based on current practice and are intended to give additional information to specifiers and users. Some manually erected cases can be closed automatically (e.g: 0216 or 0712)

Closure of boxes

Correct and effective closure of the packages is as important as the packaging construction itself.

The following methods of closure are possible either singly or in combination:

by gluing, cold or hot
by taping
by interlocking
by stitching

FEFCO - Meaning & Background

Corrugated cardboard box standards

FEFCO refers to The European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers and represents the umbrella organisation for the European Corrugated Board Industry.

Aimed at providing expertise and support, FEFCO actively ensures that members are informed about developments that may affect the corrugated packaging industry.

FEFCO box styles can be manufactured to a simple length, breadth and height (l,b,h) measurement and to a huge range of designs.

All FEFCO style packaging is of course manufactured from corrugated cardboard, which is universally accepted for recovery and recycling.

Sourcing FEFCO Styles through GWP

GWP Packaging also have an extensive library of standard carton designs developed over many years, ensuring that if a specific FEFCO layout is not 100% perfect, you can benefit from a packaging solution that fulfils your exact requirements.

Widely used for their strength, durability, lightness, recyclability, and cost-effectiveness, corrugated boxes and packaging manufactured by GWP are used in an extensive range of industries.

Due to the safety of packaging and their ability to handle the pressure that comes with stacking, it makes them ideal for easy transportation of various consumer goods and industrial components /products alike.

Usually providing the outer protection for a product, your corrugated boxes can be enhanced through the use of additional corrugated inserts (for example Corri Spring), foam end caps and other forms of cushioning and void fill.

GWP can further enhance the exterior of your corrugated cardboard box depending on its intended application.

You can add branding and graphics for retail packaging, whilst also providing identification and instructions for transit packaging.

FEFCO FAQs

Common questions regarding FEFCO packaging products

It might be that you are not sure which FEFCO style to use for your business. Perhaps you are interested to know what material options work well with FEFCO layouts. Maybe you just want to know what FEFCO stands for? All of this, and other common questions, are answered below.

Can’t find the answer to your specific question? Please contact a member of the GWP team on 01793 754 444 or email packaging@gwp.co.uk for further assistance.

Who or what are FEFCO?

FEFCO is the abbreviated name of The European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers. It is a non-profit organisation that represents the interests of the corrugated packaging industry across Europe. It’s focus is to address a wide range of issues, covering everything from technical topics to economical questions.

What does FEFCO stand for?

FEFCO is an acronym for Fédération Européenne des Fabricants de Carton Ondule. Translated into English (the original being in French) this is the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers.

What are FEFCO “styles”?

FEFCO styles are a collection of standard box and carton designs catalogued by FEFCO, and widely used throughout the corrugated packaging industry. These tried and trusted box styles can help to reduce design times whilst also providing guaranteed performance levels and usability.

How many options are there within the FEFCO Styles catalogue?

There are just short of 200 different box and carton styles within the FEFCO catalogue, providing a wide range of transit and retail packaging options. Some of the styles cover inserts rather than outer cartons, meaning that they can be used in combination with other layouts in the FEFCO styles catalogue.

What are the different FEFCO classifications?

Within the range of (almost) 200 box styles, there are a number of different categories, in order to help make selecting a suitable box style easier. This includes slotted type boxes (0200), telescopic (0300), folder type boxes / trays (0400), slide type boxes (0500), rigid (0600), ready glued (0700) and interior fittings (0900).

Can I get custom sizes / printed FEFCO cartons?

Most packaging manufacturers – including GWP Packaging – will be able to produce any FEFCO style in a custom size to suit your application, as well as providing further enhancements such as surface coatings and printed logos / graphics etc. And if none of the FEFCO styles are 100 percent perfect for your specific requirements, GWP can create completely bespoke packaging designs tailored to your business.

Are FEFCO styles used only with corrugated materials?

FEFCO styles are generally used with corrugated cardboard material. However certain styles can be used with other materials, in particular solid card / box-board, and even Correx® corrugated plastic.
