Using Proplex Plastic sheeting for packaging or storage boxes
Recently Protec have had a request for our Proplex which is to be used in an interesting application.
A red-brick university had a requirement for a lightweight but durable and versatile material to make storage boxes from. These boxes were made by the students out of 2mm Proplex by easily bending the sheeting into a neat box shape and then used to store artefacts being borrowed from the local museum. The thickness of the Proplex was essential as 4mm had been used in the past but proved too rigid to shape easily by hand. An alternative of corrugated cardboard was also investigated however this proved to be considerably more expensive. Our Proplex sheeting is, more commonly than not, used for surface protection on floors however this proves it is also a great material for storage and packaging solutions. If you want any further advice on how to create plastic storage boxes with Proplex, then contact our enquiries team on 0800 834 704.[gallery link="file"]Next post: 'Open Doors' Project - Opening Uk's Construction Sites
