Telescoping boxes

Two-part box (base/lid) from solid cardboard

Telescoping boxes, also called setup boxes, consist of a top part (lid) and a bottom part (base) and are made from corrugated or solid cardboard.

Base and lid are delivered separately and flat-packed, requiring little storage space. The component parts (base and lid) of the box are assembled separately, the bottom part is filled with the goods and then closed with the lid.

Telescoping boxes are used for transport in many different areas such as in printing plants for printed materials or in the automobile industry for spare parts.

Telescope-type boxes are manufactured to FEFCO 0304 standard and consist of a separate bottom and lid. The telescoping boxes are made from corrugated cardboard or greyboard to customer specification and are 4-point or 6-point glued.

Sealing options
Generally, these boxes are closed with the corresponding lid and secured with straps or adhesive tape for safe shipping.
