Why choose a single wall cardboard box?
Comprised of a single layer of corrugated cardboard, these boxes provide high-quality protection that is more than sturdy enough to support many of our customers’ needs. We provide this standard construction at a very affordable wholesale price, making this product one of our most popular products.
What are the physical qualities of the boxes?
Our general purpose corrugated cartons are made of a durable four-flap design that arrives flat-packed for convenient storage. To create the box, use one of our many packing tapes to secure the bottom and top flaps, incorporating one of our tape dispensers for ease. All of our single wall cartons are a standard brown colour on both the inside and outside. Some of these boxes have the added advantage of being multiscored. This allows you to reduce the depth of your carton to a pre-scored dimension, by cutting down the existing slots (between the flaps) and folding along the pre-scored crease. Multiscore depths, where applicable, are marked in the table and are always located inside the box. Furthermore, it is worth noting that some of the flaps are printed with our logo, a barcode and the size reference.
The sizes shown in the product table are the internal dimensions of the single wall box once constructed, and in the order of: length x width x height.
Are they environmentally friendly?
Our cardboard boxes are made from recycled materials, the percentage of which ranges from 60% to 90% and this cardboard is one of the most easily recycled resources in the UK. Seal with one of our paper tapes and fill with environmental void fill for the perfect plastic-free packaging. These single walled boxes are kind to the planet and vegan friendly.
What are corrugated boxes used for?
Our vast range of different sizes makes these boxes suitable for professional or domestic use. An extremely versatile item, these cardboard cartons can dependably package items ready for shipping or provide a long-lasting storage solution in either a warehouse or your own home.
The universality and versatility of a cardboard box equips it for an array of varied applications across industries.

Single wall boxes are identified by the prefix ‘CSW’.
Heavy duty Enviro-boxes have a clear ‘Enviro’ print on one of the flaps.

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.
Extra heavy duty boxes are manufactured from extremely strong cardboard and are suitable for very weighty goods.

A demonstration on how to measure your product correctly, and choose the right box.
How big is your product? Standard box dimensions are given in the order length x width x height. Measure the length with a tape measure. Next, measure the width. Measure the height / depth.
Select a box that is slightly larger in all 3 dimensions. This will allow for extra padding to protect your product. You will need the INTERNAL dimensions of the box. Depending on the board grade, this could be up to 10mm less than the external dimensions. To check that your box is the correct size, measure the length, width and height on the INSIDE of the box. All dimensions provided for our boxes are internal.
Wrap your product in a suitable padding material and place inside the box. It should be a snug fit to prevent movement.
Close the box and seal with tape or strapping as required Consider our custom logo printed tape for a cheap branded sealing option.
