Flutes Used in Corrugated Cardboard Boxes
Different Products Require Different Corrugated Box Types
The flutes between layers of linerboard give strength and structure to cardboard boxes, and sometimes protective padding as well. Our corrugated flutes can be configured for different corrugated box types and are shaped like arches, as this is the strongest formation when spanning a given space. These flutes resist bending and pressure from all directions for sturdier boxes and more creative options for attractive point of purchase displays.
Flutes come in several standard shapes or flute profiles (A, B, C, E, F, etc..), and vary depending on the corrugated box type. When the flutes are higher, they have steeper angles. The steeper the angles, the more strength there is in the box for stacking without crushing the flutes, thus maintaining the integrity of the box.
