    Corner boards | Edge protector

    What is corner board?

    Corner boards (or angle boards) are rigid angles that reinforce the edges on corners, tops, and bottoms of boxes. They may do the same to protect the corners of stacked containers. They may reinforce the interior corners of containers. Corner board is made from 100% high density polyethylene (HDPE), And they protect against the stress and friction of straps and restraint

    What does corner board do?

    Packaging, shipping, and logistics – the most vulnerable places on packages at at the edges of containers. Lifted, moved, and shipped – packages of all sizes will collide, fall, and/or shift. Corner board is the most efficient, simple, and reliable way to protect edges, strengthen boxes, facilitate stacking, and protect against strapping.

    Resistance to Moisture and Weathering

    Edge protectors is made from high density polyethylene, a non-porous material that will not hold or allow moisture to penetrate and thus weaken it. Others may claim “water resistance” with wax coatings, laminates or sealed edges but due to the nature of paper/fiber boards, they will absorb moisture and weaken, exposing your palletized boxes to damage. Corner boards is the only truly waterproof corner protector on the market and has been tested from sub-zero temperatures (IQF environments) to 250°F with no distortion of physical properties. Corner Board can be stored outdoors to save

    Reuse

    Plastic Corner protector can be re-used. In fact we have had customers use our product for 10+ trans-Atlantic shipping cycles. It was designed with this in mind. Why throw away a perfectly good corner post? The savings are exponential and it helps reduce packaging waste. .

    Testing

    In both bend resistance and flat-crush testing, Corner board performed at the top of its class. Although there are various types of testing available we have found that none match up to the conditions that are present during refrigerated inland and ocean transport.

    Corner Board – Common Logistics Applications

    • Unitizing: When product containers are cubed-off, that is, configured on a pallet, corner boards stretched across the top edges all around will keep the stack configured as a column. The weight of the load and the pallet plus the number of pallets to be stacked would decide the caliper of the corner board.
    • Stacking: Corner boards at the vertical edges permit layers of stacks depending on the weight of the product, the weight of the pallet, and the means to secure the corner boards; that is, whether or not they are secured by sheet wrap or strapping. All these factors and the number of pallets stacked determine the size and strength of the corner board.
    • Internal Support: Corner boards support containers at the inside corners. These supports reduce the amount of corrugation in the boxing material.
    • Strap Protection: Cables and strapping are used to keep stacks secure and in place. Ironically, the tension used can damage the containers they mean to protect. Placement of corner boards at vertical and horizontal edges accept and redistribute that tension and pressure.
    • Edge Protection: Corner boards are placed to repel and absorb impact at vertical container edges. These protectors will also protect the horizontal edges of individual or stacked products. And, they will protect against forklift damage if placed on bottom edges.
