Full Telescope Container

The Full Telescope Container consists of a separate top and bottom that fit over each other, if you were to look at each piece separately they are trays. The two-piece box is made from two scored and slotted rectangular blanks, with minimal manufacturing waste. The full-depth cover slides completely over the body, providing extra thicknesses of the board on all side and end panels. This gives compression strength suitable for high stacking strength of fragile articles.

The design of a Full Telescope Container style joins the flaps on the side or end panels, rather than on the top or bottom of the box. Therefore, there is an advantage of a flat bottom and top, which makes it suitable for paper, books, catalogs, and other similar products.

This is very similar to the Full Telescope design because it contains a flat top and flat bottom. However, the depth of the cover is significantly smaller. Many of the common uses are the same.

Double Cover Container (DC)

The tube forms the body of the box, with two interchangeable covers. This box, like most, is shipped flat to the users, who opens the tube and sets up the covers. This is commonly used for tall and heavy products that would be difficult to lower into a box. The item is placed on the bottom cover and the tube is then lowered over the product and the top cover is then applied. This box style is also used for granular and other free-flowing products. If the number of products or quantity changes, the tube can be cut down to the level of the contents.
