Suspension, Retention & Hybrid packaging to offer 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.

Types of Korrvu Packaging

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.

 

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.

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.
