Latest News launches specialist Twistlock box in the UK – available for bulk orders has launched a unique range of foldable plastic boxes designed specifically for large volume retailers, grocers and growers.

Designed and manufactured by CABKA-IPS – specialists in developing retail packaging solutions – the new folding boxes have a unique Twistlock release mechanism, which appeals to major users since they can collapse the boxes on the shop floor much more discreetly with maximum speed and causing minimal noise pollution.

Measuring 600mm (L) x 400mm (W), the new Twistlock foldable boxes are available in three different heights to suit specific load requirements, from the shortest GoFold 64118P (118mm height and storage capacity of 23.6 litres) to the mid-range GoFold 64173P (173mm height and storage capacity of 35.4 litres) and finally the tallest GoFold 64229P (229mm height and storage capacity of 46.8 litres.)

In their collapsed state the GoFold Twistlock boxes fold down to a height of just 28mm, which saves considerable space both in storage and transit and reduces the number of return journey trips required therefore reducing fuel costs and improving carbon footprint. Where a 13.6m trailer could fit 6,630 of the shallowest traditional bale arm crates, in comparison the same sized trailer could hold an impressive 10,296 GoFold Twistlock boxes, which is why they are proving very popular with some of Europe’s fastest growing budget supermarkets.

The Twistlock mechanism, which features on the handles at both shorter ends of the boxes, has been thoroughly durability tested for repeated use, and all four sides have handholes for ease of handling. The consistent dimensions and rigidity of the boxes also makes them suitable for rapid order picking, secure stacking and use in automated handling systems.

Ventilation holes in the sides and base of the boxes allow easy air flow, making them suitable for storing fresh produce and preserving their condition for longer than boxes with solid sides. Furthermore, as fresh produce can be placed directly into the GoFold Twistlock boxes without being pre-bagged or paper-wrapped, users can significantly reduce packaging waste.

For clear and easy product identification throughout the supply chain, the boxes have slide in label holders where labels can be inserted. Optional features include corporate personalisation with a logo moulded on both sides of the boxes and a variety of different colour options, in addition to the standard grey colour. launches specialist Twistlock box in the UK – available for bulk orders
