Additional Information

Following the single wall box (Link), double wall carboard boxes are the second most utilized box in the e-Commerce industry, which is expected to be worth 5.2 Trillion by 2020. They are the same design as our single wall boxes, but comprise of two outer liners, two layers of fluting and an inner liner. This makes the double wall box sturdier for stacking, with greater protection during shipping and storage.

Why are Double Wall Boxes so popular in the e-Commerce market?

There are many benefits to using a double wall shipping box, which we explore in more detail below:

Strength: Due to the dual fluting and extra liner, double wall boxes offer far greater protection than their single wall alternative. There are many different flute strengths and paper weights on the market, with the most common being BC flute or EB Flute.

BC fluted boxes are the thickest of the two at approximately 6-7mm, they are predominantly used for shipping products that need a higher level of protection during transit. Due to the thickness of the board they are sold in smaller pack sizes in our shop.

EB flute is a little thinner at approximately 4.5mm thick. This fluting also gives excellent protection for heavy or fragile products.

Tip: If you are looking for a printed double wall box, using EB flute will provide a greater printing surface than BC flute, due to the finer grade.

Price: As per our single wall boxes, double wall boxes are mass produced in a very cost-effective way, making them an attractive choice for keeping packaging costs to a minimum.

Multi-Purpose / Multi Depth: Some of our double wall boxes have multi-depth scores for varying the overall box size. Having a specific box that is designed to fold down to multiple depths offers an extremely flexible option, while streamlining your packing operation. Rather than purchasing different sized boxes in small quantities, you can purchase a larger number of the same box for a lower unit cost.

These boxes can be folded down to multiple depths making the same box suitable for a good selection of products. Multi-depth boxes can be used for packing, storage, shipping and even moving to a new house. The boxes are designed to hold their shape even when they are fully loaded.

Parcel Sizes

When it comes to sending your goods out through the post or courier network, the external parcel size and weight are important to be aware of to ensure delivery costs are kept to a minimum. To help with this, we give the external measurements of all our single wall boxes along with the Royal Mail Pricing in Proportion guide, this will enable you to see at a glance which price category your outer packaging will fall within.

Custom Printed Double Wall Boxes

Standard double wall boxes like these are very easy to customise. For low quantities you might want to consider a printed tape, this could add a splash of colour to your box and promote your brand. For quantities of 500 and over, you can get your double wall boxes custom printed. Just get in touch with the Packaging Supplies team for an instant quotation.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
