Inner Pack Strength

Unlike other fluted cornerboards, Tuff Angle EPs have enough vertical strength for multi-stacking boxes in the warehouse, and double stacking boxes in truck.

Hard angleboard has a great deal of stacking strength but offers very little cushioning to protect products from material handling damage.

They are relatively expensive as they become thick enough to be weight bearing.

Even at its thickest, hard angle board is still relatively thin, making it difficult to sit flush with the cornerpost in the underlying unit, thereby under-utilizing all of its carrying capacity.

Most fluted edge protectors have very little stacking strength. They are frequently used as innerpack and add some carrying capacity to the box.

But they are more suited to meet National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) guidelines for air cell clearance.

They offer more cushioning protection than hard angleboards, but due to their construction are not very strong in the vertical direction.

Tuff Angle edge protectors are ideal for warehouse utilization and freight consolidation.

They combine the stacking strength of hard angleboards with the cost, cushioning, clearance, and impact resistance of fluted corner protectors.

Their folding design provides tremendous stacking strength. Strength that other fluted cornerpost simply don't have. They provide more impact protection than either hard or fluted edge protectors.

Reinforced corners protect from forklift and clamp truck damage. Thickness conforms to NMFC guidelines for clearance; and has a larger footprint for improved stacking. Fluting provides cushion, while folds add impact and stacking strength and coatings prevent scuffing.
