What is a corrugated bottle sleeve?
These strong yet lightweight 600gsm corrugated sleeves are an excellent way to protect bottles and similarly shaped items within a box. By being heavy and typically made of glass, bottles can be prone to damages while in transit, necessitating specialist packaging to provide shock absorption and shielding. This durable corrugation is moisture resistant, flexible and extremely easy to use by simply slotting over the intended product.
How are corrugated sleeves eco-friendly?
This packaging offers a sustainable alternative to plastic padding or foam by being 100% recyclable, biodegradable and plastic-free. In a classic brown hue, the sleeves are instantly recognisable as being environmentally conscious, enhancing the customer’s satisfaction with their purchase and your brand as a whole. Displaying green credentials will satisfy the increasing pressure for businesses to minimise their negative impact on the earth wherever possible. Furthermore, the easy kerbside recyclability ensures that the packaging materials are not sent to landfill, instead, encouraging a circular economy.
What type of products can corrugated sleeving help protect?
The corrugated cylinders are perfectly molded to fit around bottles but are also suitable for glass ornaments, ceramics, jars, small metal items or an array of other long, fragile objects requiring professional levels of protection. In addition to absorbing impacts, the corrugated construction is also great at adapting around a variety of shapes to form a snug fit. With perforations on the bottom of the sleeve, you can also ensure that the base of your product is protected by simply fitting your product into the sleeve with the perforation in line with the bottom and folding the remainder under. This method requires no tape or glue. What size products fit into corrugated sleeving?
The largest size is suitable for use with products that are between 65mm - 100mm in diameter, maximum of 300mm in height (without folding the bottom) or 270mm (with folding the bottom). Each sleeve has a maximum height but can be easily cut with scissors to fit a range of item heights.
The smaller sleeve is designed for use with 330ml bottles that are between 55 and 90mm in diameter with a maximum height of 240mm without fold and 210mm with fold.
What type of box should I use with corrugated bottle sleeves?
These sleeves can be purchased on their own or with our tailor-made postal boxes that are a perfect fit for a single bottle. Simply fill in any voids with some suitable void fill (for example see our paper bubble wrap or Speedman box) and your product is safe to post. These easy-to-assemble postal boxes have tuck-in-flaps to help you construct and secure the box as efficiently as possible. Or you could use any other suitable cardboard box. If you are posting several bottles per box you could try our range of boxes for bottles to help keep each bottle secured in place.
