Roll Guards and Cradles

Optimize Freight - Enhance Safety

Cylindrical rolls can be awkward to package and difficult to transport. Traditionally, shipping departments have adopted what is known as the pyramidal approach, in which rolls are alternately stacked on top of a wooden pallet creating a triangular shape.

 

While this might solve the overall problem of shipping heavy, awkward product rolls, it creates several new ones. The pyramidal approach stacks a roll directly on top of another, and that direct contact causes friction during transport. This often stresses the product’s fragility, which inevitably arrives damaged to the customer – and it rarely only impacts one roll.

 

Additionally, the pyramidal shape is not secure and requires tie-downs to prevent the roll from falling off the pallet during transport. This adds both time and supply costs to your bottom line.

 

Utilizing roll guards and cradles in your operation helps optimize freight and storage while offering enhanced safety and better control when transporting products. 

Fiber roll cradles can be used in various applications. The material provides protection, such as cushioning properties, and helps protect against the elements by absorbing moisture while in transit without compromising integrity. Plus, this sustainable alternative to traditional foam packaging products enables customers to support their sustainable commitments – ensured by our third-party certifications.
