Edge protectors are designed to protect, stabilise and reinforce palletised loads during transit and storage.
They target the edges that are most vulnerable to damage when in the supply chain.
Edge protectors have two major benefits: firstly, they dramatically reduce the damage to products in the supply chain, therefore giving huge savings to you; secondly, they create a reduction in raw material as they protect only the damageable edges, rather than excessive solutions which needlessly protect the whole product.
Edge protectors are supplied in a heavy-duty corrugated board and manufactured bespoke to the length and level of protection required.
This ensures maximum protection whilst using a minimal amount of material.
