Single Wall boxes are constructed utilising one layer of fluting. They are the most commonly used boxes for ecommerce shipping packaging, as they are a cheaper alternative to double wall yet still provide rigidity and cushioned protection required of a shipping carton. Single Wall boxes are reliant on the flute, to determine the properities of that case. For example short flutes such as E, are able to withstand crushing far better than a larger flute. Larger flutes such as B and C are able to absorb more shock and provide a greater cushioned protection, than the smaller flutes, which is why we have chosen this fluting for our single wall stock boxes.
Double Wall boxes are constructed with two layers of fluting, generally in two types of flute sizes. The 5-ply construction provides a greater strength over the double wall, making them the perfect choice for heavier items or items which require a higher level of potection. As like the single wall, double wall boxes have their abilities and properities defined by the type of flute chosen. The increase rigidity over the single wall, makes double wall te ideal choice for utilising in long term storage. We recommend to our customers to use our double wall when shipping heavy items or for long term storage.
