Well, we are here to help you. In this article, we will evaluate the benefits of both types of cardboard boxes – giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether you need single or double-wall boxes – or both
Single wall cardboard boxes – the most versatile
First, let’s start with your single-walled cardboard box par excellence. Probably the most popular packaging choice for general use, these cardboard boxes are incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of different applications.
Manufactured with a single layer of corrugated cardboard that is surrounded by a thick layer of brown paper on each side, the walls of these boxes form a rigid container that is suitable for the packaging of many items. These boxes come in a variety of sizes, from small cardboard boxes for fragile fragile items to larger sizes for larger cargoes. We can even make customized boxes with a single layer of the wall, if you can not find the right size or if you have more specific requirements.
Designed for light-to-medium use, our single-wall cardboard boxes are the ideal packaging for warehouses, e-commerce businesses, home removals and office environments for storing, shipping or sorting items. Thanks to their sturdy sides, these boxes can be securely stacked on top of one another to optimize the use of space without the container losing integrity and collapsing.
Double-walled cardboard boxes – the reliable workhorse
Made with a double layer of corrugated cardboard and finished with thick brown paper on each side, the double-walled cardboard box is the reliable workhorse for packaging requirements. The additional layer of cardboard provides additional strength to withstand heavier loads and handling for storing and transporting goods.
An ideal solution for industrial environments where heavy load processing is a daily requirement, the rugged and reinforced sidewalls provide a reliable, robust and durable container for heavy loads. Add to this their compression and stacking strength, the double-walled box is a good option to ensure that goods inside are well protected wherever they go.
In addition to bulky and heavy loads, these double-walled crates can also be used to carry delicate or fragile objects that can be damaged, as the extra layer provides extra cushioning for shock absorption. Stored in different sizes and available for customization, double wallboard is a must for packing heavy loads or items requiring extra protection.
Single wall vs double corrugated wall
When to use double wall boxes
Double-walled boxes are an excellent choice for heavier products or those requiring more protection. They are also an excellent option when products need to be stacked safely and stored in transit or stored while waiting to be sold. Because they are stiffer, they will better withstand these conditions of stacking and long-term storage. Double-wall boxes are often used in outlets and manufacturing facilities. Single- and double-walled enclosures provide more insulation and protection against sudden or volatile temperature changes.
Why should I buy double wall boxes?
The power of packaging is undeniable. And we understand that choosing the right box for your products can seem overwhelming. But let us tell you … it’s worth doing a bit of research to understand the types of boxes, as well as the ins and outs of each one. Do you know the differences, advantages, and disadvantages between a double-walled housing and a single housing?
Before you engage in the box type when packing your products, think about the type of box you need. The type of box you use is one of the most important packaging decisions, for a number of reasons. The packaging is not just about design – you need to consider strength and durability, functionality, and more.
If you need boxes with superior strength and durability, you may want to consider double wall boxes.
What are double-wall boxes?
Double-wall boxes are stronger and more robust than single wall boxes. Like simple wall boxes, double wall boxes consist of fluted paper sheets that are pressed between two sheets of paper. Interior and exterior components can be made from a variety of materials, including recycled paper, kraft paper or even so-called test paper. The strength and durability of the box depend on the type of paper used and the size of the flutes. The main difference between single-walled and double-walled boxes is that double walls have, you guessed it, two layers of fluted core material instead of just one.
When to Avoid Double Wall Boxes – Consider Solidity, Storage and Budget
If your product will not be stored for a period of time and is not extremely heavy or temperature sensitive, a double-walled box may not be worth the extra investment in terms of cost. Single-wall boxes will usually do a great job of packing and moving or storing light goods or merchandise.
Is the budget a concern (is not it always)? Keep in mind that, yes, double-walled boxes are a bigger investment than single-walled options, but they can sometimes be self-financing when you evaluate the costs and the total cost of replacing damaged items if you use single-walled boxes that do not contain finished work.
Is it even important?
You may be wondering … does the type of box you use matter? According to the 2018 report on the state of the packaging industry, 84% of survey respondents, all of whom have played a leading role in the consumer packaging sector, say that packaging played a leading role in building their brand and that their importance has only grown two years. This is just an indication of the importance of packaging in the overall brand and product perception.
So, what does all this mean for you? In a nutshell, this means that you simply cannot afford to overlook the type of box in which you put your products. And so it makes sense that before you do anything about packaging, you have to choose your box. Are double wall boxes right for you?
