Wooden boxes and crates
Plywood wooden boxes and crates
Plywood cases are normally used when our customers need to dispatch either valuable and/or sensitive products, multiple components in a wooden case. For example aftermarket parts or products such as gearboxes, engines or metal castings. Where weight is less of an issue they offer a robust solution that will protect the product. Manufactured to customer specific requirements, our plywood cases are predominantly used for export applications and are made from heat treated timber framing in compliance with ISPM 15. The plywood material allows the box to breathe, thus limiting exposure to moisture during transportation.

Wooden hollow and transport saddles | Wood pipe saddles | Cradle skids
Our wooden hollow saddles and transport saddles provide maximum protection for curved products such as boilers and pipes. Creating these saddles is a specific expertise, the quality of which is guaranteed by our designers which provides products designs accurate up to the tenth of a millimetre. Your saddles can be equipped with a layer of felt to ensure your products remain undamaged, while mounting brackets, used to secure your equipment during transport, can also be added.
Shrink wrap technology gives your item protection from water, road contamination and harmful UV rays. This is a cost-effective way to ensure excellent protection in transit.
VCI shrink wrap for ferrous and non-ferrous metals contain a chemical compound that release an invisible, odourless, and non-toxic corrosion inhibiting vapour into the air. Molecules settle on exposed metal surfaces and interrupt the electrochemical corrosion process. The equipment is removed from the packing, and the corrosion inhibiting molecular layer vaporizes into the atmosphere. This leaves behind clean, dry, corrosion free parts ready for immediate use.
Aluminium barrier foil
Goods in danger of corrosion need protection in a “climatic packing”. For sea transport, polar and tropical shipment and during long-term storage. The packed goods, sealed into steam-tight layer foils (aluminium composite or polyethylene). This closes off the packed goods hermetically against the outer air. With the inner atmosphere kept securely below 50% rh and the volume of desiccant units calculated accordingly. This adsorbs the residual moisture in the sealed packing.
