General remarks Please note that several case designs contained in the under other basic type groups.
01 – Commercial rolls and sheets
0100 Single face corrugated cardboard
0100 Single wall corrugated cardboard
02 – Slotted-type boxes
Slotted-type boxes consist of basically one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers joint and top and bottom flaps. They are shipped flat,ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided.
0200 Half Slotted Container (HSC)
Same as Regular Slotted Container (0201) without one set of flaps.
0201 Regular Slotted Container (RSC)
All flaps have the same length, and the two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one-half the container’s width, so that they meet at the center of the box when folded. If the product requires a flat, even bottom surface, or the protection of two full layers, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps. This is a highly efficient design for many applications. There is very little manufacturing waste. The RSC can be used for most products and is the most common box style.
0202 Overlap Slotted Container (OSC)
All flaps have the same length. The outer flaps overlap by one inch or more. The box is easily closed, usually with staples driven through the overlap area. This style is used when the length of the box is considerably greater than the width, resulting in a long gap between the inner flaps. The sealed overlap helps to keep the outer flaps from pulling apart.
0203 Full Overlap Slotted Container (FOL)
All flaps have the same length (the width of the box). When closed, the outer flaps come within one inch of complete overlap. The style is especially resistant to rough handling. Stacked on its bottom panel, the overlapping flaps provide added cushioning. Stacked on its side, the extra thickness provides added stacking strength.
0204 Center Special Slotted Container (CSSC)
Inner and outer flaps are cut to different lengths. Both pairs of flaps meet at the center of the box. The style is especially strong because both the top and bottom have double the thickness of corrugated board. The inner flaps, with no gap, provide a level base for the product. A variation of this box is the Side Special Slotted Container, or SSS. All pairs of flaps meet, but not at the center of the box.
0205 Center Special Overlap Slotted Container (CSO)
All flaps have the same length (one-half the length of the box). The length of the box can be no more than twice its width. When closed, the inner flaps meet at the center of the box, providing a level base and full top protection. Depending on the ratio of length to width, the outer flaps overlap at random, up to full overlap.
0206 Center Special Full Overlap Slotted Container (SFF)
Inner and outer flaps are cut to different lengths. When closed, the inner flaps meet at the center of the box, and outer flaps fully overlap. With three full layers of combined board over the entire top and bottom, this style provides extra cushioning when stacked on its bottom, or extra stacking strength when stacked on its side.
0215 Snap or 1-2-3 Bottom Container with Tuck Top
The four flaps that form the bottom panel are die cut. To set up, the user folds the largest bottom panel first, then the two end panels. When the remaining bottom panel is folded and pressure is applied near the center, the flap “snaps” into the slot created by the other panels. The style is convenient for small-volume shippers who do not have automatic set-up equipment. Because the bottom is not fully sealed, it may not be suitable for heavy products.
0216 Snap or 1-2-3 Bottom Container with RSC
Top Same as 0215, replacing the tuck top configuration with RSC style flaps.
03 – Telescope-type boxes
Telescope-type boxes consist of more than one piece and are characterised by a lid and/or bottom telescoping over the body of the box.
0301 Full Telescope Design Style Container (FTD)
The two-piece box is made from two scored and slotted blanks (trays).
0306 Design Style Container with Cover (DSC)
0310 Double Cover Container (DC)
A tube forms the body. The two interchangeable covers are usually design style. The pieces are shipped flat to the user, who opens the tube and sets up the covers. The style is frequently used for tall or heavy products that would be difficult to lower into a box. The item is placed on the bottom cover, and the tube is lowered over the product.
0325 Interlocking Double Cover Container (IC)
Flanges on the body, folded together (interlocked/baseloid) with flanges on the covers, are held in place with strapping. The style offers the same ease of packing provided by the double-cover box, with the assurance that the covers will not separate from the body. This feature is advantageous for moving large or heavy products such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, water heaters, vending machines and some hazardous materials.
04 – Folder-type boxes and trays
Folder-type boxes and trays usually consist of only one piece of board. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs.
For folders, one or more pieces of combined board provide an unbroken bottom surface, and are scored to fold around a product. The International Fibreboard Casecode describes them as Folder-Type Boxes. The carrier classifications use the term Folders.
0401 One Piece Folder (OPF)
One piece of board is cut so that it provides a flat bottom, with flaps forming the sides and ends, and extensions of the side flaps meeting to form the top.
0403 One Piece Folder with Air Cell/End Buffers, Protect All or Bookwrap
0406 Wrap Around Blank
A wrap-around blank is formed into a box by folding it tightly around a rigid product. The positioning of the product, folding and sealing are performed by automatic equipment. The finished box is essentially an RSC, turned on its side so that the bottom and top are unbroken. The joint, however, is not formed until the final closure.
0410 Five Panel Folder (FPF) or Harness Style Five Panel Folder
A single cut and scored piece features a fifth panel used as the closing flap, completely covering a side panel. The closed box has several layers of combined board on each end, providing stacking strength and protection for long articles of small diameter which might be damaged, or damage the box, if pushed through the ends.
0422 Roll End Tray, Walker Lock Tray, or Tray with Self Locking Ends
Formed from a single piece of combined board, the design features an unbroken bottom, and several layers of corrugated in the end panels. Trays are not shipping containers, but they are frequently used as inner containers for parts, delicate produce, letter mail and other products, or as elements of display stands.
05 – Slide-type boxes
Slide-type boxes consist of several pieces of liners and sleeves sliding in different directions into each other. This group also includes outside sleeves for other cases.
06 – Rigid-type boxes
Rigid-type boxes consist of two separate end pieces and a body and require stitching or a similar operation before they can be used.The three pieces of a rigid box style include two identical end panels and a body that folds to form the two side panels, an unbroken bottom and the top. Flaps used to form the joints can be on the end pieces or the body or both. The end panels are attached to the body with special equipment, usually at the user’s plant. Six or more joints must be sealed to set up the box before it is filled. The name Rigid Boxes comes from the fact that once the six or more joints are sealed, the box is rigid. The International Fibreboard Casecode identifies these styles as Rigid-Type Boxes. In the carrier classifications, rigid boxes are classified as Conventional Slotted Boxes or Recessed End Boxes.
0601A Bliss Style Container with End Flaps
0606A Bliss Style Container
07 – Ready-glued cases
Ready-glued cases consist of basically one piece,are shipped flat and ready to use by simple setting up.
0711 Pre-glued Auto Bottom with RSC Top Flaps
The top panels of the box are usually those of a regular slotted container. For a telescope-style box, two self-erecting pieces can be used (International Fibreboard Case Code: 0714).
09 – Interior fitments
Interior fitments such as inside liners, pads, partitions dividers etc., whether tied to Case Design or as singular items. Any shown number of panels is arbitrary
