Fabric Dunnages and Dividers on Returnable Containers, Offer Maximum Protection and Reduces Waste
Integrating fabric dunnages on reusable packaging are a cost-effective and durable solution for protecting delicate finished components and other sensitive products while in transit.
Sensitive components for markets like the automotive industry can be difficult to transport without the right solution. Solutions like rigid dividers are often implemented in an attempt to keep products more securely in place, but can often create scratches and scuffs on extra sensitive parts. To avoid these issues, DS Smith Plastics also offers textile dividers in their returnable transit packaging for parts that need added padding.
Textile dividers are an alternative interior solution for returnable containers and boxes designed to hold sensitive products safely in position, while not creating extra forces in transit. While dividers made of rigid materials are great for larger and stronger engine components in the automotive industry, other materials like head lamps and mirrors could benefit from textile materials to prevent any kind of scratching.
The textile dividers help to save on transportation costs as they allow optimized space and parts per packaging. They are also easily foldable and save space in return transit.
Solutions for textile dividers are often fixed into the polypropylene plastic containers and boxes on the production floor to keep them taught and in position. These solutions can even come in several different materials such as non-woven fabrics, Tyvek, Evolon, PVC canvas, or textile foam, all of which are materials known for their durability and lightweight.
