Foam sheeting is inter-weaved between each individual extrusion, layer by layer, to provide superior protection from surface rubs & scratches during transit. Foam weaving can be added to any packaging method.
Wood dunnage is placed on all sides of the bundle, strapped together and repeated at regular intervals along the length of the bundle. The additional support ensures the bundle is fully contained during transport and prevents the possibility of the bundle collapsing. This is one of our most common forms of packaging and works best for structured shapes.
Cardboard corner protectors are placed between the centre band points and all four corners of the bundle, to provide protection from forklift handling, transport & stacking, as well as protecting the extrusions from any friction caused by the structured wood. This method of packing is only available for anodized bundles.
Strips of chipboard are placed 3 feet apart along each layer of the bundle. The chipboard will ensure the bundle is balanced and offer support and separation between layers to prevent scratches on the finished product.
Two pieces of wood dunnage are placed on the top and bottom of the bundle, strapped together and repeated at regular intervals along the length of the bundle. This is one of our most common forms of packaging and works best for structured shapes.
