FEFCO Styles

A comprehensive guide to all available FEFCO styles for producing industry standard cartons

The ‘International Fibreboard Case Code Catalogue’ was developed by FEFCO as an official system referring to fibreboard packaging by replacing long descriptions with symbols that are recognised internationally. The FEFCO Styles catalogue ensures that corrugated packaging can be identified regardless of the user’s languages or working practices.

 

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.

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)

Description of basic type groups

General remarks

Please note that several case designs contained in the code under a specific number could also be classified under other basic type groups.

 

01 – Commercial rolls and sheets

 

02 – Slotted-type boxes

Slotted-type boxes consist of basically one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers joint and top and bottom flaps. They are shipped flat, ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided.

03 – Telescope-type boxes

Telescope-type boxes consist of more than one piece and are characterised by a lid and/or bottom telescoping over the body of the box.

04 – Folder-type boxes and trays

Folder-type boxes and trays usually consist of only one piece of board. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs.

05 – Slide-type boxes

Slide-type boxes consist of several pieces of liners and sleeves sliding in different directions into each other. This group also includes outside sleeves for other cases.

06 – Rigid-type boxes

Rigid-type boxes consist of two separate end pieces and a body and require stitching or a similar operation before they can be used.

07 – Ready-glued cases

Ready-glued cases consist of basically one piece, are shipped flat and ready to use by simple setting up.

09 – Interior fitments

Interior fitments such as inside liners, pads, partitions, dividers etc., whether tied to Case Design or as singular items. Any shown number of panels is arbitrary and may be increased or decreased as required.

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
