Appropriate and thoroughly thought through packaging is a prerequisite of keeping the shipment undamaged and unchanged.
It is important to select the type and material of the packaging depending on the means of shipment, route, time and characteristics of the shipment.
Our approach is based on the above-mentioned conditions to offer the best possible solutions to ensure a stable and safe environment for shipments.
Our experience in packing a variety of items such as motorcycles, pianos and valuable pieces of fine art provide a guarantee to our customers that our solutions for any kind of packaging is the best, the safest and also financially the most reasonable.
Alternatives for various types of crates and packages are virtually unlimited. Solutions described below are just some of the most common ones.
Combining different packaging and materials, we can offer the exact type of crate, packaging and means of packing required for each specific instance. Do not hesitate to contact us, and we will find the most suitable solution for you.
Boxes from corrugated board are available in standard sizes and, if necessary, we will build a box to measure using 5-layered, 3-layered and also double-layered corrugated cardboard. The benefits of corrugated cardboard boxes are cheap price and light weight. The drawbacks are easy tearing of the material and moisture absorption, also the corrugated cardboard cannot tolerate harder hits, bumps and heavier loads.
Corrugated cardboard boxes can be easily combined with various cushioning materials to achieve better shock- and vibration-proofing of fragile items.
Crates from thick corrugated board are made from 7-layered corrugated cardboard that is 15 mm thick. Such crates are as light and easy to make as corrugated cardboard boxes compared to wooden or plywood crates. A crate made from 7-layered corrugated cardboard is significantly stronger and more resistant against shocks, bumps and falls, they can also hold much heavier items without the risk of deformation or breaking. The crate can be effectively used for air transport where the weight of the shipment plays an important part in the cost of transport.
Plywood crates have a wide range of uses. Since plywood crates are strong and relatively rigid even in larger dimensions they can be used for packing and transporting items that are fragile and require a more stable environment.
A simple common plywood crate is common packaging for sculptures, paintings, heavy and fragile items like pianos, electronics equipment, but also for transporting of bigger animals.
The methods and solutions to manufacturing plywood crates are so comprehensive that they are suitable for transporting, storing and why not exhibiting of almost any type of goods.
In combination with different packaging materials, plywood crates can be used to safely package and transport even the most fragile goods.
Packing fine arts is an essential part of fine art transport. Undamaged arrival of the shipment to the destination in the best possible condition depends on the quality and choice of packing materials and packaging itself. This is the reason why an agreed concept of museum standard crates has been developed. Although materials used in manufacturing the crates and protecting the insides of the crates may vary in different parts of the world, but the main prerequisite of the museum standard crate is to provide pieces of fine arts the maximum protection against shocks, vibration, and changes in temperature and humidity.
A climate crate is a museum standard crate intended for packing and transporting objects that require require even more precise climate conditions.
Climate crates are manufactured from multi-layered materials that block temperature and humidity, climate crates are often they built as a system of two separate crates that fit into one another. Every detail of a climate crate has its own specific purpose and ensures stability of the transport environment of the shipment. The specific construction of a climate crate also depends on planned route and means of transport.
Climate crates are relatively common for air transport as it is difficult to ensure a specific suitable level of temperature and humidity in the cargo hold of an airplane.
A travel frame is a simple and relatively light alternative short distance transport and storage of larger paintings, sculptures and installations, but also electronics equipment, pianos and other items. The purpose of the travel frame is to ensure the safety of the shipment, to protect against dust and other factors from the environment, and to act as a casing that provides strength and protection. Travel frames are often used in combination with other types of crates, e.g. paintings in plaster frames are hung inside travel frames and then packed into museum standard crates.
