Over the years, rigid boxes have been a staple in event decoration. They are used to create a theme or add an extra touch of elegance to your decor. Wooden boxes can be made from many different materials and come in many shapes and sizes, but there is one thing that they all have in common: rigidity! This blog post will explore few types of rigid boxes that you may encounter when shopping for them.
This is the most basic type of rigid box. Corrugated boxes are made from the corrugated board (also called cereal or folding carton). The layers of paperboard material are glued together with alternating grain directions to increase strength and rigidity. This design makes it very easy for them to be collapsed into a flat, thin shape that can easily fit through tight spaces like narrow halls and doorways. The rigid box manufacturers provide these in a wide variety of sizes and colors.
A ubiquitous material for rigid boxes is cardboard. They are made from glued layers of paper boards, making them more sturdy than corrugated boards since they don’t have the alternating grain direction that corrugates do.
Honeycomb boxes are similar to corrugated and cardboard in structure, but they have a unique design that makes them much more substantial than those other two types of rigid containers. The carton is made from a single piece of the board without any folding, which means it does not need the glue found on corrugated panels or glued layers as paperboard cartons have.
Tubular boxes are hollow cylinders that have the exact measurements on both ends. These rigid boxes can come in different heights, widths, and lengths depending on how they will be used.
Slipcases are rigid boxes with the exact measurements on each end, but they have one side that is not as deep as the other.
No matter what type of rigid box you’re looking for, there’s a manufacturing company out there that can meet your needs.
