Korrvu suspension packaging

Suspension Packaging.

Unrivalled protection to products in transit

The Sealed Air range of Korrvu packaging is an innovative new form of transit / postal packaging. By using a non-slip film to either suspend or secure products within a traditional corrugated outer carton, it provides a practical alternative to foam void fill / inserts.

Besides the potential environmental benefits of eliminating foam or polystyrene, Korrvu’s suspension, retention and hybrid packaging products offer a wealth of additional advantages, including space savings through flat pack supply and reducing packaging inventory.

01: Key Benefits.

Advantages to your business of using Korrvu® packaging

With the explosion in ecommerce seeing many more products and items being sent via courier networks – and conservative estimates indicating there are at least 7 touch points during their journey – there is considerable potential for damage to occur. Korrvu can help with this, as well as providing a number of other benefits.

Key benefits of Korrvu® packaging

  • Protects from shock, vibration and impact by suspending product
  • Transparent film ensures effective product presentation
  • Exceptionally versatile, as the film conforms to a wide range of shapes
  • Supplied flat, saving on storage space and costs
  • Selection of standard designs available and bespoke designs as required
  • Recyclable and eco-friendly (with more than 30% recycled materials used)
  • Can be re-used over multiple trips to lower costs
  • Easy to use with simple assembly

02: Product Protection.

Eliminate the need for foams and void fill packaging, whilst maintaining protection

Korrvu packaging is incredibly unique and represents one of the most advanced forms of corrugated protective packaging that you can source from GWP Packaging.

Korrvu packaging secures products using a traditional corrugated carton with an innovative elastomeric, non-slip film to hold each item in place whilst offering protective cushioning properties.

Besides this, Korrvu packaging offers an exceptionally versatile and re-usable method for storing and transporting items.

The versatility of this method ensures a wide range of products can be safely packaged, offering both cushioning protection during transit and effective product presentation.

03: How It Works.

How Korrvu® Packaging works

The Korrvu packaging is delivered flat packed to minimise storage space requirements.

For suspension packaging, the frame is assembled and placed into the box before the product is placed in the centre of the frame, suspending it in the centre of the container.

The top window is then placed over the product, meaning it is completely suspended between both films

For retention packaging, the product is slid into the non-slip film, before the packaging is folded, pulling the film taut to hold the product in place whilst creating a cushion below.

Hybrid packaging is a combination of the above. Arriving flat, the flaps are firstly folded upward to loosen the film (allowing for easy insertion of the product) The product is then inserted before the flaps are folded down to tighten the film around the item

The final step for all 3 types of Korrvu packaging is to place within and close the outer box, creating tension that holds the product securely in place.

What GWP Packaging customers say

66% of consumers believe the packaging of their shipment shows them how much the retailer cares about them and their order.* Korrvu® packaging safely holds your product in the center of the shipping container and keeps your product securely in place, protecting it from shock and vibration.

04: Types of Korrvu® Packaging.

Options for differing packaging applications

There are 3 distinct types of Korrvu packaging, each with their own differing features and benefits.

Suspension packaging

Suspension packaging’s unique construction suspends the products or equipment to be transported between 2 layers of non-slip, highly resilient film, providing a consistent level of protection regardless of how delicate or fragile the items enclosed.

This ensures that there is always a “cushion” of air on all sides of the suspended product.

Korrvu suspension packaging works by suspending the product between 2 films, effectively meaning it is surrounded by air on all sides

Retention packaging

Retention Packaging protects its’ contents by bracing them within a traditional corrugated cardboard outer, using a special non-slip film and ingenious construction to ensure they do not move in transit.

By eradicating movement in transit, and keeping the product away from potential impact points on the outer carton, retention packaging offers a superb level of protection against mishandling and damage.

Hybrid packaging

“Hybrid” packaging combines the best elements of both the retention packaging and suspension packaging solutions that are both available through GWP, suspending the product away from potential impact areas within the outer packaging, whilst also securing the item in place (as per the retention system).

The elastomeric film which the hybrid packaging uses is perfect for low profile items that benefit from surface protection as well as retention hold, and as it is transparent it also showcases the product contained within.

05: About GWP Packaging.

A designer, manufacturer and supplier of corrugated boxes

GWP Packaging are proud to be official distributors of the entire range of Sealed Air products. Whilst this includes the Korrvu range, it also encompasses numerous other products, most notably Stratocell foam which is used to create end caps and inserts.

However, the range of products that GWP can offer is actually wider still.

Besides the corrugated packaging and Sealed Air products, you can also source virtually any type of foam packaging, Correx® handling products, plastic and metal protective cases, picking bins, anti static packaging, board coatings and much else besides.

Packaging designers
Working with experienced packaging designers can result in maximising the benefits - and cost effectiveness - of your packaging.

What this product range means for your business is that you can source all of your packaging from a single supplier. The benefits of this? Well, you can lower costs through economies of scale, reduce admin through a single PO / invoice (and not managing multiple suppliers), and the compatibility of products is much better too.

That’s not all though.

GWP place a strong emphasis on both design and manufacture. This means we have an experienced design team, highly skilled production staff and the latest manufacturing equipment.

In short, your packaging will be cost effective, tailored to your exact requirements, and be of the highest quality. Guaranteed.
