Materials

With decades of fine art handling experience, our team is dedicated to locating industry leading materials. Our mission is to supply you with products that are safe for your valuable objects, as well as economic and environmentally friendly!

G-Box Construction

CORRUGATED 

We offer ECT 44 single wall (SW) or 500 LB double wall (DW) corrugated shells. Our corrugated shipping containers are treated with a moisture resistant coating on the exterior.

PUNCTURE GUARD

The optional puncture guard is adhered to the interior lid and bottom of the G-box. The puncture guard is .04 heavy duty utility grade plastic and noted by the “L” on our G-box order number.

FOAM

Each G-box is supplied with two layers of convoluted foam and either 1 or 2 center layers of perforated foam. Perforations in the center foam create a convenient, custom, safe way to cushion your framed art. 2 center layers are included in our wide cartons and indicated by the “W” in our product number.

INTERIOR DIMENSIONS

Refer to the chart for each G-box interior dimensions. We suggest leaving 3″ length and width for foam cushioning. For depth, We recommend leaving 1 – 1/2″.

EXTERIOR DIMENSIONS

All G-boxes are within the maximum allowed shipping dimensions for both FedEx and UPS. Please refer to our chart to estimate shipping cost for your future shipments. Most shipping agents will charge by total girth (L+2(W)) + (2(H or D)).

CENTERS OUT (NEW)

Why waste? Save your money on select G-boxes by ordering centers out! We will remove the unwanted foam and re-use it for a smaller G-box.
