There are some machines such as our carton shredder that recycle your waste material by converting old boxes into infill material.  Most machinery can be covered by service agreements and all come with a manufacturer’s guarantee.  The initial outlay is usually recovered as a result of labour  efficiencies arising from the introduction of the machine.
Cushioning provides the protection of the product from shocks encountered during transit and storage. The most common form of cushioning is bubble wrap which provides a protective blanket around the product and comes in various forms, sizes and roll widths.Other forms of cushioning available use air, paper, and foam The correct choice of cushioning is influenced by a number of  factors including size, weight of the item, quantity, destination and the  fragility of the product. Call us for any assistance you may need in making the right choice.
Strapping – Used to secure loads, strapping is desirable on many types of product . Supplied in various materials (Steel, Polypropylene, Rayon, Nylon), widths and thickness the correct choice depends on the application and the way the strapping is fixed. Strapping can also be tamper evident or printed with warnings or Company details. Another important consideration is the method of sealing the strap. The correct combination of seals and strapping to ensure any load is safe and secure is critical.
