What does single wall and double wall mean?

Corrugated cardboard or fiberboard is made of two components: linerboard and medium. The medium is the wavy fluted paper. The linerboard is the flat facing that adheres to and protects the medium.

Single wall corrugated fiberboard is composed of two layers of linerboard sandwiching one layer of medium.

Double wall corrugated fiber board is composed of three layers of linerboard sandwiching two layer of medium.

 

What kind of material should I use?

The answer to this question depends on several things:

  • What are you shipping?
  • How heavy is what you are shipping?
  • How much protection do you need?

How do I measure my box?

The box industry has a specific way to measure boxes.

First, the measurements should reflect the inside dimensions of the box. The size of the box should be stated in terms of Length, Width and Depth ( or Height ). Length is the longest side of the box. Width is the shortest side. As you look into the opening of the box, the Depth ( or Height ) is the measurement from the opening down to the floor of the box.

A graphic representation of how to measure each box can be found on the box style page. Click on the picture beside the box style description.
