Why Fiber Partitions Are Important In Packaging
Shipping fragile products such as china, delicate electronic items and glassware is difficult as these items are easily prone to damage. Fiber Partitions are popular box dividers that offer high level of product packaging protection. This type of packaging separates and protects fragile products by creating individual cells in which the products can be placed.
Specific features can be added to fiber partition packaging to meet customer needs.
- Corner Cuts
This feature can help reduce insertion problems by decreasing the interference between the partition and the edge of the carton. It also provides clearance for bottom and top locking styles when the partition is opened. The different styles that are available with this feature include concave or convex, diagonal and rounded.
The feature restricts the movement of strips in the open position. This provides cell integrity both at the bottom and top of the partition. The locking feature is offered in many styles and depends on the height and number of strips.
- Orientation Notches
The feature ensures that all partitions in an erector are folded in the same direction. The uniform opening facilitates automatic operations. The rectangular notches that are at one end of the length and width strip, line up when the partition is collapsed uniformly.
- Cleve Grip
The adhesive coating is applied to the edges (vertical) of the partition. This creates friction between the carton and the partition minimizing the partition fallout during collapse.
A fiber partition is manufactured with higher precision that the standard corrugated partitions. This results in less paper dust. As the cell walls are thin it allows for reduction in box size. The partition uses 75% less space than the corrugated partitions during shipping and storage. It significantly reduces product damage that is usually caused due to lateral impact.
As the fiber is precision sized, it has tighter tolerance than the corrugated partitions. The number of partitions that can fit in a box can be increased easily and this can help cut down shipping cost.
The cardboard dividers in Surrey, B.C. are built to meet the specific requirement of the item to be shipped. This type of packaging ensures that each product is cradled separately ensuring each item is protected individually. This is ideal for keeping the products safe during movement and resist damage.
Fiber partition offers the highest level of protective packaging available in the market. As they are compatible with automatic packaging equipment they have become a popular choice across industries.
