Protective packaging supplier Atlas Packaging designs and manufacturers commercial furniture packaging for Norbord, who provide flat-pack furniture to B&Q. Due to the bulky nature of furniture, It is easy to damage during transit, therefore requiring protective packaging to ensure complete protection against any damage during transit from the manufacturer to retailer and ultimately on to the consumer.
A popular option for furniture packaging is die cut FIVE panel wraps. Arriving at the furniture manufacturer flat and unfolded, this packaging solution is initially assembled in to a tray with an inbuilt lid to accommodate and protect the furniture.
The packaging can be created from a variety of different grades of single wall and double wall heavy duty corrugated cardboard depending on the furniture to be packed and the amount of protection required by the client. Self-assembly kitchen worktops and cupboard sets are often packaged in heavy duty double wall corrugated cardboard to offer the maximum protection for the product during transit to ensure it arrives to the consumer in pristine condition.
Furniture packaging from Atlas Packaging can be designed to be stacked on pallets for shipping and on to the consumer with no damage. As required, furniture packaging can include manufacturer branding, product names and descriptions, bar codes, part numbers and consumer assembly instructions.
