Crating Design Services to Suit Your Needs
Beyond the crating aspect, there are also many other options to consider. Each of these additional features can assist in safer and easier transportation of the crate and its contents. These additional options are available on most all crates we manufacture.
Crate bases can have a standard or shock-mount design. A shock-mount base is manufactured with different types of foam products that absorb shock. Shock-mount bases should be utilized for products that are sensitive to impact during transport to mitigate potential damage.
We are compliant with all global crating and packaging requirements. We are an ISPM 15 certified manufacturing facility.
International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) refers to the procedures for certifying wooden packaging for international transportation, to prevent the spread of invasive insects between countries. It allows for Heat-treated or Chemical-treated wood products in packaging.
At Crating Technology, we utilize only Heat-Treated (HT) stamped wood products for our crates.
Twist latches are added to crates for easier opening & closing of the crate, without the use of power tools.
Hinges allow easier opening/closing of the crate. Handles can also be added for certain applications. The additions of other hardware can allow the crate to be used multiple times.
A customized ramp may be substituted for one of the crate panels allowing for an easier load/unload process for equipment on wheels.
Casters can be added to many crates for easier maneuverability in small spaces or special applications. Many different casters can be used depending on weight and size of the product/crate or even the surface the crate will be rolled on.
Skrim is a fiber reinforced, heavy gauge plastic sheeting that can be added to the top of crates that are stored or transported in inclement weather, to help protect from water damage.
In many crates we build, custom-cut foam is utilized. It is one more method to secure your product inside the crate to prevent damage from movement or impact.
Different types and densities of foam can be utilized based on the characteristics of the product, the type of protection needed, or the method of transportation and storage.
Stencils can be added to any crate for most any purpose, from standard international handling symbols to addresses or special instructions. We utilize a computerized stencil cutter that can make stencils in many sizes and fonts. We also have the capability to laser cut reusable stencils with your company logo.
It is a key way to display crate direction, fragile items, no tolerance for moisture, and much more.
