Layer pads are used inside cases to divide layers of stacked products such as cans, bottles and other rigid packaging.
The cardboard layer pad stabilises the products and disperses weight evenly to ensure they remain free from damage during transit.
The top layer pad also offers additional product protection when cases are being cut open.
Layer pads or sheets are available in a range of corrugated cardboard and are designed to provide the required amount of strength to meet the physical requirements of your supply chain.
100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource, layer pads are an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic products.
