What are Octabins?

Octabin is a standardized container of large dimensions. Octabins are made of thick corrugated cardboard and provide good dry product protection.

Octabins are large proportioned, thick corrugated cardboard boxes made to hold extremely heavy products including up to 1 tonne in weight in some cases. They can come in a range of sizes and are ideal for storing granules of plastics, powders, resins and other dry products Their octagonal shape makes them stronger than conventional pallet boxes meaning they are less likely to buckle under extreme force. However, they are a standardised container sturdily designed to fit on a standard wooden pallet for transportation on road, air or sea.

Why Choose an Octabins?

Cardboard Octabins offer a range of benefits including:

  • Dry Product Protection
  • Maintenance of Product Quality
  • Range of size dimensions to meet a wide range of product packaging needs
  • Base and lid to make filling and discharge easier

For these reasons Octabins are ideal heavy duty shipping boxes.
