Design & Testing

design and testing

You supply us with your product – and we design and construct your packaging, providing the maximum protection possible.  We offer a full design facility for corrugated board, Polyethylene foam and die cut cartons – and will always produce a sample for customer approval.

Corrugated Board: We have access to over 100 grades of corrugated board so we can easily get the correct grade for each job.

Corrugated Board Testing: We have access via the board mills, to laboratory testing facilities so we can check the board grade of any pack. We can also advise on maximum stacking heights of packs as well as ‘burst’ strengths of boards.

Polyethylene Foam: Using computer programmes and drop curve technology, we can easily advise of the amount of foam needed to successfully protect a product. Thus ensuring maximum protection using minimum packaging.

Drop testing

For smaller items that can easily be handled we can carry out drop tests. Using an accelerometer attached to the product, via a computer screen and print out, we can prove the G force experienced by the product when dropped.


Once a design is formulated we will make a sample either by hand, or production machinery or on a CAD table.
