Fiber dividers are an essential part of packing, especially when you want to utilize space and protect the items during transit. With the advancements in technology, it is now easy to get the dividers in whatever dimensions that you need, in no time flat. You can vary the thickness of the partitions to suit its contents.
Why use Fiber Dividers
The main use of fiber dividers is that they make many cells within the box to hold the articles for shipment. Cardboard strips are cut into the correct length and height and then slotted so that they interlock each other. By doing so, they are able to do the following, which happens to be advantageous for the products such as –
- They allow the products to lie next to each other without touching, minimizing scratches and damage.
- They absorb excess moisture in the air and container.
- They also cushion the products so that they do not break.
Custom made Partitions
You can get custom made fiber partitions to meet customer demands such as –
- Corner cuts
- Orientation notches
- Various other configurations
The notches will lock the partitions in place and will keep them from moving and as a result, disturbing the packed items. They also come with rounded corners, which will reduce friction between the wall of the box and the partition. V-notches can be either in the top or bottom depending upon packaging requirements. The edges also come with adhesive coating to prevent further movement of the partitions after they are placed inside the box.
Advantages of Using Fiber Partitions
One of the reasons that people prefer using fiber partitions are because they are almost completely dust free. They are also thinner than corrugated cardboard partitions and use less space. As they are thinner, they can be cut more precisely than corrugated ones. As the partitions are thinner, it further reduces the overall size of the box and thus makes the packaging more economical, saving around 75% of the traveling space.
When you want high quality packaging solutions that are also cost-effective, the fiber dividers are the obvious choice. Interior protective materials cannot be avoided, especially when you want fragile, breakable objects to arrive at the destination in one piece and in good condition. That is why it is so important that shippers invest in partitions and dividers, even if they increase the price of the packaging as they preserve the value of the packed goods.
