Unlike our other heavy-duty boxes, the double wall shipping boxes feature two sheets
of corrugated cardboard which are securely glued together. This advanced construction
design provides increased resistance to compression forces during shipping, ensuring
that your box won’t be crushed or damaged during transport. These reinforced products
can also be stacked without worrying about collapse or harm. Our double walled boxes
are the perfect choice for clients interested in shipping or transporting their
products throughout the UK.
Double wall boxes are one of the most popular types of carton for shipping goods
via a carrier or postal network.
These strong boxes are ideal for heavy objects, and when stacking is required. They
also offer extra protection when shipping sensitive products, as the extra layer
of corrugated cushions any impact whilst keeping the box intact.
Double walled packing boxes are perfect for any large-scale transport, storage,
or shipping operation. Whether you require boxes for home or apartment packing,
long-term product storage or cross-country shipping operations, our double wall
boxes will get the job done. With a wide range of available sizes, companies and
organisations can ensure that their boxes precisely match the requirements of the
current project. For those planning on shipping extremely heavy loads, the professionals
at Kite Packaging recommend you research alternative packaging options, such as
our export and pallet boxes designed to accommodate larger projects.
For more information about our double wall boxes, we have a selection of relevant
videos below. If you are still unsure about these boxes and their application then
please give us a call.
We sell various types of boxes, from standard duty single wall to extra heavy duty.
Single wall boxes are identified by the prefix ‘CSW’.
Heavy duty Enviro-boxes have a clear ‘Enviro’ print on one of the flaps.
Double wall boxes have a code starting ‘CDW’.
As you can see, our single wall boxes have a single layer of corrugated board. They are our best value option for packing lightweight goods.
Enviro-boxes are made from a thicker and more rigid single wall board. These are suitable for slightly heavier goods.
Double wall boxes have 2 layers of corrugated board, making them our strongest general-use boxes. They can be used to pack heavy items such as books.
We also sell extra heavy boxes, suitable for very heavy items such as engineering components.
The first dimension is always the longest opening dimension.
The second dimension is the shortest opening dimension, and the third dimension is always the depth.
Remember that the dimensions are always INTERNAL, the usable space, not the external.
On boxes the difference between internal and external can be very considerable, depending upon the board grade and the style of the box.
To emphasise the difference in the internal and external dimensions of a box, this is a simple B flute single wall box.
As we can see, the usable internal dimensions:
Those are the external dimensions.
Quite a big difference!
Now you have to decide, do you want to pack your item into the box like that, in which case this dimension will be your first dimension, this dimension will be your second dimension, and the dimension from here to here will be the third dimension.
You may well say, for shipping reasons, I want to ship this product lying down.
In which case the first dimension will be from here to here, the second dimension would be from here to here, and the third dimension would be depth of the box.
That would give me the dimensions of my box if I was going to pack this item lying on its back.
Another important factor always to consider - is my item rigid?
If I am packing this engineering component...
This block measures exactly 235mm, it is sensible to allow dimensions of 238mm so that the item can be slid in and out of the box.
The next dimension is 125mm, once again we should call 128mm to allow the item to slide in and out of the box.
The last dimension is the height, which measures at exactly 100mm. Once again, we should specify 103mm.
This item should then fit into the box with just a mm or two to spare, a nice snug fit.
You may have an item like this, which is an unusual shape.
The easiest and safest way to measure it is to turn it on its side, get yourself a straight edge, and then measure the height from the table top to the straight edge.
If you want to pack this out with some dunnage or bubble wrap, tissue paper or similar item, you need to allow some space in the box for those items to fit in.
On the website there is a great conversion tool that will move from mm to cm to inches, you can also put any dimensions into our calculators and it will transfer them.
We work in mm because thats the way we work, but it doesn't mean you have to! Thank you.
