Crashlock cartons have a glued self erecting base. They are normally used when the cartons are being packed by hand, you only need to squeeze the sides to lock the base in place ready to fill the carton.
This greatly speeds up the packing process.
There are a number of variations of this carton, most of which are to alter the way the base of the carton folds for different products, for example when used with bottles having a reinforced base.
Crashlock cartons are great for:
- Hand packing where speed is needed.
- Boxes with heavy contents like bottles where a tuck-end could come open.
- Larger cartons where the design means lower board use making it more cost-effective.
