There are many different types of wooden crates used for business and industry. When you need a crate that can go the extra mile, then a wooden crate with our handcrafted, steel reinforcements can offer the most cost effective and safe option. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Standard Wooden Crates
A typical wood crate is constructed entirely with wood and wood reinforcements. If you have a crate that is going to be stacked, removed, and stacked again during shipment, you may want to consider a steel reinforcement. While wooden crates are built durable, a lot of wear and tear can damage any weak spots the crate may have.
Strength And Durability
For some tasks, you might need a crate that can offer a lot of strength and durability. Our aluminum corners allow the corners of a crate to be protected from damage while adding strength to the entire crate. When applied at all weaker pressure points of a crate, Klug Korners ribbed steel reinforcements can provide a lot of protection from forklifts and other machinery during transportation.
Reduce Damaged Goods
Skimping on packaging can be a costly mistake. Adding a reinforcement can ensure structural security. Steel improves the integrity of a crate in a simple inexpensive way, securing your products for a few more dollars could save you millions in the long run. Plus, steel is a lot stronger and is more compact than additional wood reinforcements nailed/screwed to the crate corners.
