Thanks to a secure, durable four-flap design and flat-pack shipping method, both individuals and businesses can benefit from our products reliability and portability. Perfectly suited to a variety of consignment applications, single wall cardboard boxes are a durable and cost effective solution to more expensive cardboard products. Whether you are shipping products to customers across the UK, relocating your business or place of residence, or simply looking for long-term storage options, our single wall boxes can get the job done.
Our sturdy single wall cartons are delivered flat, ready for you to make up by taping the bottom and top flaps. We recommend using one of our tape dispensers. All of our single wall boxes are a standard brown colour on both the inside and outside. Some of the flaps are printed with our logo, a barcode and the size reference.
Sizes shown are the internal dimensions of the single wall box once constructed,
and in the order of:
length x width x height
Some of these single wall cartons 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. Multiscores are located inside the box.
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’.
Extra heavy duty boxes are labeled XHD 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.
Watch a demonstration video on how to adjust the height of multi-score boxes using one of our safety cutters.
Many of our cardboard boxes have multi-score lines that allow the height to be adjusted.
We sell a box cutter that enables this to be done quickly and safely, due to its retractable blade.
Multi-score lines are clearly visible, look at the table on the box page for their height.
Using the knife, cut down each corner to the height you require.
Insert your items, then fold down the flaps to the new height.
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.
Made from environmentally friendly, reinforced single wall cardboard. Offer protection of traditional double wall boxes but use less material.
Double wall cardboard boxes
Strong cardboard boxes made from double wall cardboard.
48mm (2 inch) packaging tape
General purpose packaging tape for various applications. Choose from 66m or cost-effective 150m rolls, and acrylic, hotmelt and solvent adhesives.
The measurements of a cardboard box always refer to the internal dimensions of the carton (the usable space), not the external dimensions. Depending on the grade and fluting of the cardboard, the internal and external dimensions of a box can differ significantly.
The first dimension is always the longest opening dimension. The second dimension is the shortest opening dimension. The third dimension is the height (sometimes referred to as the "depth").
Remember to leave space for any extra padding you wish to use to protect your product. For example, if you are using bubble wrap to cushion the item then you should add at least 5mm to each dimension.
Corrugated cardboard consists of a corrugated sheet (the "fluting") that is glued to a flat sheet of paper (the "liner").
Cardboard boxes are made from corrugated board that has a liner on both the inside and outside of the fluting. The strength depends on the combination of the size of the fluting and weight of the paper.
A single sheet of fluting that is sandwiched between two sheets of paper is referred to as single wall cardboard. By adding a second sheet of fluting you get double wall cardboard which offers extra strength (suitable for heavier items, more resistant to crushing when stacked, better puncture resistance).
You can get cardboard in a variety of sizes of fluting, and each has its own benefits. Smaller the fluting means the cardboard will have more rigidity, whereas larger fluting offers better cushioning to your goods. Double wall cardboard is commonly made from 2 different sizes of fluting, so you get the benefits of both types.
If the fluting only has a liner on one side (leaving the other side as bare cardboard fluting) then it is referred to as single face board. It does not have the same strength or durability as other types of cardboard, but it is cheap to produce and is commonly used for padding and protection.
Cardboard boxes can be made from two different types of paper. Kraft paper is manufactured from softwood trees. Thanks to these "virgin" fibres it is both strong and easy to print on. This means it is commonly used for the outside liner paper of cardboard boxes.
Test paper is made using recycled paper. This means it is cheaper to manufacture but it gives the paper a mottled effect. It is commonly used to for the inner liner of cardboard boxes.
Many of our boxes have a multiscore feature, giving you the option to vary the depth of the box to a pre-scored dimension. As well as functioning like a standard cardboard box, they also have an extra crease on the inside of the box.
Simply cut the existing slots (between the flaps), fold along the pre-scored crease, and you create a shallower depth carton.
The diagram to the right illustrates a multiscore box. The blue dashed line is the full height of the box, where as the red dashed line is multiscore height. In this diagram we have already cut down between the two front flaps and folded the front side of the box to the new reduced height.
Some boxes have more than one multiscore depth, offering you a wide variety of box heights whilst only having to keep a single size of box in your warehouse.
