Protect Products, Reduce Costs With Edge Protection
Edge protection solves a wide range of storage, stacking, shipping, and product protection challenges. Made of a laminated recycled paperboard, edge protection reinforces edges and corners of stacked pallets and containers, providing load containment, stabilization, and uniform weight distribution. Items can be uniformly and safely stacked and stored to optimize warehouse space and shipments, and protect your products.
From an e-commerce/direct ship standpoint, edge protection is an effective solution to safeguarding against potential damage that could occur during transit to the customer’s doorstep.
Why Businesses Choose Edge Protection:
1. The applications are endless. Use to unitize pallet loads, containers, or individual items.
2. It's durable and strong. Protects valuable products such as windows and doors, electronics, sporting gear, or pallets of produce and other food items.
3. Customizable to fit your application. Use it to reinforce packaging inside or outside of the box.
4. Use to unitize and contain items. Products can be stacked and stored efficiently.
5. Easy to apply and remove. A benefit for both shippers and recipients.
6. A cleaner, 100% recyclable solution. Added protection without extra waste. Replaces wood crating and extra packaging.
