Corrugated cardboard boxes are the most popular types of industrial packaging solutions available today. Among them, the triple wall cardboard boxes are the strongest, and the most durable type of corrugated packaging available. The boxes feature three flute layers separated by four layers of liner materials, thus the name. Generally, these corrugated boxes feature 7-ply construction and are used to carry heavy and large items such as industrial equipment and several delicate products during air or sea freight. They are also used to hold products during the display.
Triple wall cardboard boxes are often used as an alternative to wooden crates because they combine the durability of the wood, and yet possess a light footprint. Triple wall boxes have gained immense popularity in recent years owing to their reusability and utility advantages they offer.
At BlueRose Packaging, we provide heavy-duty triple wall boxes in various sizes, weight carrying capabilities, and bottom options. Our boxes can resist wearing and tearing, and can be customized to meet any packaging challenge.
Here are some features of customization services, which have been best utilized by our clients to build strong and safety-driven triple wall cardboard boxes.

- Regular Slotted Container (RSC): This is one of the most common box styles provided by us. The boxes feature flaps of the same length; however, the two outer flaps are half the container’s width, and this enables them to meet at the center. There is very little waste due to its highly efficient design.
