More information on double wall cardboard boxes

It is not uncommon for businesses and industrial users to become frustrated with their double wall boxes.

Frequently this is because they source from a packaging merchant or online seller offering corrugated packaging in a range of stock sizes.

While this is certainly a low-cost way of sourcing your transit packaging, it has several inherent problems. These issues increase your ongoing costs (particularly when compared with custom-sized packaging).

Firstly, using a stock-sized double wall carton means selecting a slightly larger size than you require. This requirement is so your products/parts fit. You then pay to ship this excess, wasted space. You are also likely to fill this with secondary packaging such as paper void fill (at further cost).

Levels of transit protection are also likely to be lower. Plus, space within the boxes can also affect load stability and stacking performance.

GWP take a different approach. You can source custom double wall boxes designed and optimally sized for your product or application. Your bespoke packaging can also include calculating the optimum material grade, tailoring the size, and analysing stacking strength requirements. You can, of course, even enhance your packaging with print and additional coatings.

Uses for double walled boxes

Even if you can see the advantages of custom transit packaging, why should you consider double wall boxes specifically?

The durable material means provides considerably higher protection for your products in transit. Double wall boxes for shipping maintain their rigidity and shape much better – even after poor handling – protecting their contents.

It also ensures your packaging looks much better on arrival with your customers. This improved presentation, in turn, reflects well on your business and brand reputation.

Double wall packaging can also be stacked more safely, protecting your items. However, this improved stacking performance also improves safety for your packing or warehouse staff. These cartons are perfect for use as pallet optimised boxes for export/bulk shipping.

The material’s strength also allows the manufacture of extra-large double wall boxes. These are ideal for oversized products or equipment, particularly in industrial sectors.

Your double wall cardboard boxes can be supplied flat for minimised transit and storage costs. Alternatively, they can be delivered fully assembled to improve packing times. This latter point is beneficial if your packs contain foam end caps, dividers or other inserts.

Ultimately, their use is widespread for industrial packaging applications. Their ability to safely transport up to 30 kg in weight (or more, depending on the box design and specific corrugated grade) makes them ideal for transit packaging.

They are also a great choice – and rapidly growing in popularity for – eCommerce packaging applications.

Questions about double wall boxes

Do you need some double wall boxes for your business but are unsure of the best way to proceed? Need to know about print options? Or not even sure what “double wall” means?

These questions and answers provide info on the most common queries concerning this type of packaging. However, if you need any other information, please get in touch.

What is a double walled box?

A double wall box is cardboard packaging manufactured using this specific material. Double wall cardboard consists of two outer liners. It comprises an inner liner and two layers (hence the double in the name) of corrugated or fluted material. This 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, several different types of double wall material. The board can vary depending on the outer liners (i.e. weights and colours) and the flute types used. Typical examples are EB and BC flutes, which provide additional strength or improved print quality. GWP is happy to advise on the best option for your specific requirement.

What is tri wall?

Tri wall is a specialist product which uses three layers of corrugated material (compared to one for single wall and two for double wall). Typically used for only the heaviest duty applications, Tri wall or triple wall packaging can provide strength comparable to wooden shipping crates. It has improved environmental performance and printing capabilities compared with wood, however.

Can I print on double wall boxes?

Print is easily applied to double walled packaging during the manufacturing process. Printed double wall boxes can include branding and logos, handling instructions, recycling info, and part/model numbers.

Can I use double wall boxes for eCommerce packaging?

Double wall boxes are increasingly common in eCommerce packaging. Their increasing use is typically due to providing excellent protection during transit. However, they can also take much heavier weights (of contents) than single wall boxes. Specific sizes, print designs, and other custom options are possible too. As they also maintain their shape during transit, parcels look much more presentable on arrival. This improved appearance is particularly beneficial if the packaging has experienced poor courier handling.

What other packaging is available in double wall material?

Besides transit and eCommerce packaging, the strength of this material lends itself to other applications too. Double wall archive boxes, durable divider sets, and internal fittings see widespread use.
