This is really quite simple; the shipper box is larger than the product it contains. If the box is sized well, this difference in extra “air” space can be easily filled with just about any void fill product including paper, foam peanuts and, of course, inflatable air pillows like we offer.
Blocking and Bracing – This differs from a standard void fill application because in most cases the product is heavy, possibly fragile and of high value. In most cases it is also dense, so it shifting within the shipper box is not just likely, it is probably inevitable. In an application like this, the goal is to basically immobilize the product within the shipper box, and usually a lightweight paper or plastic product is simply not going to work.
We offer a wide variety of different materials in different formulations, sizes and gauges, but here are four of our most popular stock items:
Mini Air Filler, 100% recycled content air pillows: This is a low cost favorite for people who prefer their plastics to be recycled and not virgin. It repurposes what would otherwise be waste, and each bag is printed, letting the recipient know that it is recycled, and recyclable.
Biodegradable air pillows: These are specially formulated to be recyclable and biodegradable. Each pillow is printed with an eco friendly message.
Heavy Duty Biodegradable Bubble Packaging on Demand: This is our newest product and it has amazing blocking and bracing capability. For most challenging applications, this product will probably help you accomplish your packing and shipping objectives at a fraction of the cost and in a much greener way.
Every application is different depending on what you ship, where you ship, how you ship, how it’s packed, etc., so please contact us for a no obligation application review and consultation. Even if inflatable air packaging products are not the best choice for you, we are certain to have a product available that is.
