PB 26 Remee RuggedPackaging 400Remee Wire & Cable has announced new packaging for Remee Wire & Cable products.  Remee has engineered these new boxes to provide a sturdy carton that will protect customers’ cable purchases during shipping and on the job site. In addition, the new carton design facilitates trouble-free cable payout and ease of use. These new Remee boxes are among the strongest available in the market today. They are used on all standard and customized Remee cable purchases.

The new packaging features and benefits include:

  1. Side-loaded panels feature an interlocking plastic ring which secures the plastic payout cone to the carton, while also strengthening the box.
  2. Utilizes Remee’s proprietary “pull-box” package design for easy cable payout (watch 10 sec. video of cable payout at https://remee.com/remee-resources/).
    1. Tangle-free
    2. Twist-free
    3. Kink-free
    4. No reel caddy is needed
  3. Carton walls are one of the strongest in the industry! Remee boxes feature a double corrugation wall to provide better structural support than single wall cartons.  Fully tested using the Mullen Test to measure the bursting strength of paperboard, all Remee cartons are rated at 275 lbs./sq. in., which indicates the amount of force required to burst any of the SINGLE CORRUGATED WALLS on the box.  However, since Remee uses a double-wall corrugation design, this strength factor is ESSENTIALLY DOUBLED.  Remee cartons can also hold up to 100 lbs. before experiencing any fatigue.
  4. Carton is designed with structural integrity in mind!
    1. Handles are in front, not on top, which helps keep the glued seams intact.
    2. Less glue is used – Remee’s exclusive interlocking package design has fewer glued seams required, thereby minimizing the potential points of failure from standard handling and use.
  5. Corrugated material is provided in different wall thicknesses, known as flute sizes.  Each flute size has a particularly useful function, from shipping strength, to reducing storage space, to improved printability.  Here are the strengths and advantages of the E and B flutes that combine to deliver exceptional structural support for Remee cartons:

                                  E Flute - contains about 90 flutes per foot. The E-flute has greater crush resistance. The thin board profile of the E-flute reduces outer box dimensions and can help save storage space.

                                  B Flute - With lower arch heights and more flutes per foot than A-flute material, B-flutes have a greater number of contact points along the liner. This extra support offers excellent puncture- and crush-resistance properties and consumes less warehouse space.

  1. Remee’s exclusive 275# double wall design is totally unique and makes Remee packaging one of the strongest used in the wire and cable industry.
