Folder-type boxes and trays 0400

Folder-type boxes and trays usually consist of only one piece of board. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. They can be referred to as five panel wraps and are often used for packaging catalogues and mail order products. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs.

Key styles:

FEFCO code 0411 is ideal for packaging flat products and is often used for flat packed furniture packaging.

FEFCO code 0422 can be made up from flat without using tape. It has tabs that tuck into the bottom of the box but requires tooling for manufacture.

FEFCO style 0427 has 3 sheets of cardboard on the side walls for added downward strength and durability. It lends itself to many packaging solutions and is seen in regular use for fast moving consumer electronics packaging, custom printed, with bespoke cardboard inserts that both protect and effectively display the product to deliver the best customer box-opening experience.

FEFCO code 0471 is very similar to 0427 but can be a cheaper packaging product solution for large volumes due to a higher board utilisation percentage.
