More information on double wall cardboard boxes
It is not uncommon for businesses and industrial users to become frustrated with their double wall boxes.
This is often because they have been sourced from a packaging merchant or online seller, offering corrugated packaging in a range of stock sizes.
Whilst this is certainly a low-cost way of sourcing you transit packaging, it has a number if inherent problems that will actually increase your ongoing costs (when compared with using custom sized packaging anyway).
Firstly, using a stock sized double wall carton will mean that you need to select a size that is slightly larger than you actually require (so that your products / parts will actually fit). You then pay to ship this empty space and are likely to have to fill this with secondary packaging such as paper void fill (at further cost again).
Levels of transit protection are also likely to be lower, and empty space can also affect load stability and stacking performance.
GWP take a different approach. You will be able to source custom sized double wall boxes that will be perfectly tailored to your product or specific application. This will include calculating the optimum material grade, tailoring the size, analysing stacking strength requirements and even enhancing your packaging with print and additional coatings.
Uses for double walled boxes
Even if you can see the advantages of using custom transit packaging, why should you consider double wall boxes specifically?
Well, the durable material means that your products will be much better protected in transit. Double wall cartons will maintain there rigidity and shape much better – even in the face of poor handling – protecting their contents and looking much better on arrival with your customers (which in turn reflects well on your business / brand reputation).
They can also be stacked more safely, again protecting your items but also improving safety for your packing or warehouse staff. This also makes them perfect for use as pallet optimised boxes for export / bulk shipping.
Your double wall cardboard boxes can also be supplied flat for minimised transit and storage costs, or fully assembled to improve packing times (particularly if containing foam end caps, dividers or other inserts)
Ultimately, due to their ability to safely transport up to 30 kg in weight (although this may be higher / lower depending on the box design and specific corrugated grade), they are widely used for industrial packaging applications. Saying that, they are also a great choice – and are increasingly be used for – ecommerce packaging applications too.

Questions about Double Wall Boxes
Need some double wall boxes for your business but not sure of the best way to proceed? Need to know about print options? Or not even sure what “double wall” means?
The below questions and answers provide info on the most common queries concerning this type of packaging, but, if you need any other information, please get in touch.
What is a double walled box?
A double wall box is basically cardboard packaging that is made from a double walled material. Double wall cardboard consists of two outer liners, an inner liner, and two layers (hence the double in the name) of corrugated or fluted material. This type of material provides excellent strength and durability, making it suitable for a wide range of transit packaging.
Are there different types of double wall material?
There are in fact a number of different types of double wall material. This can vary depending on the outer liners (in terms of weights and colours), as well as the flute type inside as well. Common examples are EB and BC flutes, which can be used for additional strength or improved print quality respectively. GWP will be happy to advise on the best option for your specific requirement.
What is tri wall?
Tri wall is a specialist product which actually uses 3 layers of corrugated material (compared with one for single wall and two for double). Typically used for only the heaviest duty applications, Tri wall or triple wall packaging can actually provide a strength comparable to wooden shipping crates (but with improved environmental performance and printing capabilities).
Can I print on double wall boxes?
Double wall boxes can be easily printed onto during the manufacturing process. Printed double wall boxes can include branding and logos, handling instructions, recycling info, part and model numbers and any other useful details required.
Can I use double wall for ecommerce packaging?
Double wall boxes are increasingly being used for ecommerce packaging. This is because they offer excellent protection during transit, can take much heavier weights (of contents) than single wall boxes, and can be tailored to specific sizes, print designs etc. As they also maintain their shape better during transit, parcels will look much more presentable on arrival, if they have experienced poor handling from couriers.
