Description

More information on 5 panel wraps

Panel wraps, like corrugated cases (0201s) are a low-cost method of packaging your parts, products or materials.

Similar to the book wraps used for ecommerce applications, panel wraps involve placing your items on the central panel of the packaging, and then folding the other panels up and over to form a box around it. The top and ends can then be sealed using tapes, glues or even strapping depending on the nature of your products.

So, whilst this form of corrugated packaging is cost effective in terms of purchasing, it can also help to reduce costs through your packing teams’ efficiency / productivity.

They are also supplied flat which means they take up minimal storage space in your factory or warehouse.

And the nature of the corrugated cardboard material itself also means that your packaging is fully biodegradable and recyclable (making disposal for your customers quick and simple).

Custom cardboard wraps

Unlike many suppliers of corrugated transit packaging, GWP will manufacture your panel wraps (and other boxes) to your exact specification.

Not only does this mean improved protection for your products due to a better fit, but also minimises material usage and additional void fill requirements. This in turn can reduce shipping costs too (as you are not paying to ship empty space).

But aside from custom sizes and selecting material that is the appropriate balance between performance, strength and cost, GWP can enhance your wrap-around packaging in a number of other ways too.

This includes external printing to add your company logo, handling instructions, part numbers and other information.

You can also add water resistant coating, or an anti-abrasion finish that will protect the surfaces of items inside (particularly useful for anything printed, painted, or highly polished).

What are panel wraps?

Panel wraps – also commonly referred to as 5 panel wraps or wraparound packaging – are essentially a form of low cost box that is literally wrapped around your product before shipping (rather than placing your items into a pre-assembled box).

Are 5 panel wraps different from book wraps?

Panel wraps and book wraps are effectively the same product / concept. However, book wraps tend to be used for ecommerce applications, and as such may have additional features such as tear strips, tamper evident features and internal tabs for holding items in place. Panel wraps tend to be used for industrial packaging applications.

What type of material are panel wraps made from?

Panel wraps are manufactured from corrugated cardboard material, but the grade used will depend on a number of factors., This includes the size, fragility and weight of the items you are packing in them, as well as expected handling / storage processes and environments. GWP will be able to recommend a suitable single or double wall box material to ensure the optimum level of performance for your wraps.

How are panel wraps secured before shipping?

Panel wraps, once assembled around your product, will need to be secured using a packing tape, glue, or other form of adhesive. For larger and / or heavier items, strapping or banding can also be used.

Can I have my panel wraps printed?

Cardboard panel wraps can be printed to add your company logo and branding, handling instructions, safety messages, part numbers and any other information that would be useful to include. As the wraps are also available in both white and kraft finishes, your packaging can provide a professional and / or eye-catching appearance as appropriate.
