In the print trade we use to call them skid protectors and they were used on every skid or pallet of printing product that left the shop. These edge protectors and strapping guards apply the most appropriate pressure on the edges of pallets and boxes. We recommend using corrugated sheets with edge protection for maximum protection. Use corrugated sheets along the sides of the pallets to add additional layers of protection to your shipments. Some of our edge and strapping protectors, along with the pallet cones are pre-printed for informing carrier workers about the presence of fragile goods inside the box.

Print shops and binderies use a large amount of edge protectors because they are tough and reusable. If you ship print jobs from one location to the other or just store them for later distribution edge protectors and strapping guards are a real money saver in the long run. Some shops will keep a used blade that they use just for cardboard or edge protectors. Don’t use a new sharp blade but one you are about to send out for sharpening. They can cut the edge protectors to various sizes with their large paper cutters and store them for use later.

Made by laminating strong recycled paperboard into a rigid right-angle shaped edge protector that can provide pallet edge protection, stabilization, load containment and provide uniform weight distribution.

Strapping Guards.

Strapping guards are used to protect the edges where the strapping sits on a pallet. Without strapping guards the straps might cut into the load from movement and vibration while in transit.
