If you need the most durable packaging for your business, you should seriously consider triple wall cardboard boxes.

Triple wall cardboard boxes are the strongest, most durable form of corrugated transit packaging. It uses three layers of corrugated material to provide performance levels comparable with wooden crates – with less bulk and weight. Custom-sized triple-wall cardboard boxes can also reduce ongoing shipping costs, being perfect for weights of 100kg or more and helping to better protect their contents during transit. Read more

About triple wall boxes

Widely used for export and other industrial packaging applications, triple wall cardboard boxes (also known as Tri-Wall) are arguably the strongest, most durable form of corrugated packaging currently available.

In fact, triple wall boxes are often used as an alternative to wooden crates rather than similar corrugated packaging, offering similar compression strength to timber (and up to 10 times as much as alternative double wall cardboard boxes).

This strength also means that triple wall cardboard boxes can cope with weights of 100kg and above.

And whilst several different grades allow triple wall packaging to be tailored to specific applications, they are commonly used for pallet boxes (and pallet optimised boxes) or other transit applications requiring stacking.

You can also print triple-wall packaging, allowing branding, logos, and any specialist handling or transport instructions to be clearly displayed.

The inherent properties of the tri-wall corrugated material also mean that it offers increased protection against perforation and impact. It can even help reduce any adverse effects of changes in ambient temperature.

Using triple-wall cardboard boxes can have several environmental benefits as well.

A similar-sized triple-wall box is considerably less bulky and has a lower tare weight than an equivalent timber crate. This reduced mass means that space efficiency can improve in transit, reducing the amount of transportation required (and the carbon emissions this would generate).

GWP supply custom-sized triple wall cardboard boxes, which also help reduce your business’ shipping costs. As you no longer pay to ship empty space or excessive amounts of void fill, the long-term savings you can make can be significant.

Corrugated cardboard is typically made from recycled material and is considerably easier to recycle at the end of its life. Recyclability is a considerable benefit for end users of your packaging, too.

Key benefits of triple wall cardboard boxes

The key benefits of triple wall boxes include:

  • Up to 10 times greater compression strength compared to standard corrugated.
  • Highest levels of rigidity and crush/abrasion resistance.
  • Also minimises the effects of temperature changes.
  • Comparable performance and compression strength to wooden crates.
  • Light tare-weight to reduce shipping costs.
