Packing Solutions

  • Packing cases manufactured from plywood with timber frame construction, neoprene gaskets and captive screws for security. Shock resistance and insulation are provided by expanded polyester urethane, closed cell (Ethafoam) or cross lined (Plastazote) polyethylene foams where appropriate.
  • Corrugated Boxes custom designed for the item to be shipped, constructed of 350 lb. text, double-wall corrugated, secured with staples (not tape) to ensure carton integrity. The boxes are lined with 1" polystyrene board. Each piece is shrink wrapped to protect it from dirt and moisture. Additional packing and shock absorbing materials are used based upon the nature of the piece.
  • Picture Crates are built with 3/4" plywood frames and 3/8" plywood sides. The crate is lined with 1" polystyrene board. Stretched canvases and gold leaf frames are covered with pH neutral glassine paper. Multiple pieces are separated by full size corrugated cardboard. Artwork with glass is wrapped with 2 layers of bubble wrap. This crate can be built to hold a number of pieces and offers excellent protection for shipping.
  • Medium Wood Crates have a 3/8" plywood base framed with 2 x 4s and skids for easy handling. The sides are 3/8" plywood externally framed on all sides with 1 x 4 lumbers. Internal packing is engineered using various materials and techniques based upon the nature of the item. This crate is ideal for very large art shipments (10-20 paintings) and sculptures.
  • Heavy Wood Crates. Our heavy wood crates are made with 3/4" plywood base framed with 2 x 6s, with skids for forklift handling. The sides are externally framed with 2 x 4s. This crate is very rugged and durable, suitable for large sculptures and other pieces weighing more than 300 pounds. Items in the crate are blocked and held in place with fill or packed tightly to prevent movement.
