Key advantages


  • Provides a safer means of opening corrugated and fibreboard boxes.

  • Quick access into the corrugated boxes speeds up shelf stocking

  • Enhances pack strength by reinforcing weaker areas of the box and eliminating the need for perforations

  • Cost effective solution compared to fibre based tape opening solutions

  • Corrugated containers can be transformed into display trays with 'clean' edges for effective shelf positioning as part of a 'clean-cut' system, helping to maintain a clean edge on the outer liner
