Foam Case Inserts

Ultimate product protection

Are experiencing a high or unacceptable level of damages to your items during transit? If your answer is yes, then your business should take advantage of custom designed foam case inserts.

Utilising the latest software and performance calculations, custom case inserts can offer a precise level of protection.

Tool control foam shadowboards

Tool Control Foam

Easy identification of tools / equipment

Specialist tools and equipment are expensive. Losing them is very expensive! Tool control foam helps to prevent this.

Also known as shadow boards, these foam inserts for cases, trays or even drawers highlight if a tool is missing. They can also help your field staff identify the tool they need, increasing productivity.

Foam dividers and dunnage for totes

Foam Dividers / Dunnage

Effective materials handling solution

When manufacturing high value goods, the devil is in the detail. Quite often, a small surface scratch can result in a product be rejected or returned.

As a result, more and more manufacturers are turning to foam inserts, dunnage and dividers to protect components during handling that occurs during manufacturing processes.

Presentation foam for retail

Presentation Foam

Retail and sales applications

Presentation foam can help with everything from differentiating your luxury retail goods through high quality foam inserts, to sample cases that provide a striking, professional image in sales presentations.

Regardless of your goals, you can boost sales and improve your business reputation through custom designed foams.

Foam laser etching

03: Foam Protection Performance.

Inserts for cases that offer calculated cushion protection

Plastazote, the foam material of choice for GWP Protective, provides both superb cushioning and presentation.

It is well known for being lightweight, tough, flexible, moisture resistant, chemically inert and resistant to oils, solvents, dilute acids and UV light. It is also available in a large range of colours, offering further customisation options.

Specialist foams, such as conductive, static dissipative and high density are all available in the range.

Foam insert manufacture

Using this material, your engineered foam inserts are designed to reduce the effect of shock and vibration on delicate, highly calibrated and often extremely valuable items during both transportation and storage.

By reducing any shocks generated by mishandling of the exterior case to a specific level of performance, it will allow damage to the packaged article to be greatly reduced.

By using the latest software and performance models, we can accurately engineer the precise level of cushioning required for a specific product or item.

Your foam inserts can be designed to suit any exterior case or packaging, providing protection from vibration, water and dust as well as providing precise levels of cushioning.
