How to pack bricks – The Packaging Doctor

By Carl Board • Monday 26th November 2018

In the building and construction industry, it can prove particularly difficult to find a suitable packing solution that accommodates heavy goods whilst still being environmentally friendly. The Packaging Doctor is always on hand to assist with all your diverse packaging queries…


Dear Doctor,

We are looking for a solution to a problem we’re experiencing when we ship our new brick products. At the moment we are using foam walls as dividers for the bricks but we are looking for a stronger, cost-effective alternative that is better for the environment.



Hi Joe,
Thanks for getting in touch – let’s see how Kite can help.
We have a solution that ticks all those three boxes – we recommend our corrugated pallets with runners. These are manufactured from cardboard which is 100% recyclable, making them the perfect eco-friendly alternative to foam.
Designed for shipping products, their lightweight characteristics means they’re pallets that will save you money on transport costs, allowing customers to carry more weight on each load which will lead to fewer journeys.
Therefore you can carry more bricks in fewer trips on the road, making your transit period more productive at the same time as causing less harm to the environment.
The corrugated material is glued together meaning there is no need for nails, there will be no cuts or splinters thanks to their simple yet effective corrugated cardboard and glue composition.

Best wishes,
The Packaging Doctor
