The Timber Packaging Professional Process… At Aussie Crates, we can custom design and manufacture the ideal timber packaging solution for all your timber packaging needs. Here is the process we use, conditional on the job, to ensure that the client’s packaging expectations are met – and exceeded!

Step 1: We receive an enquiry over the Phone, Email or in person. Our friendly sales team then identify:

       

 The requirements of the item – weight, size, special handling requirements. We offer an obligation free onsite measuring service. If you measure the item to be packed yourself, if possible please provide the size in millimetres and provide us with the size you want the inside of the box to be (L x W x H) and generally allow an extra 50mm to the length and to the width and 20mm to the height. 

 The means of transport of the item – Truck, Ship, Train, Plane and the relevant material handling equipment available. 

 The requisites of the destination – local or international; different countries have different regulations, restrictions and limitations on import and export packaging. 

Crates Our Cases and Crates are constructed primarily of kiln dried pine, with timber supplied from certified W.A. plantations. Crates are timber boxes with slatted sides, top and floor. They are ideal for weight reduction and internal visibility. They provide good protection and excellent air circulation. There are many variations of wooden crate designs. By far the most common are 'closed', 'open' and 'framed'. A Closed Crate is one that is completely or nearly completely enclosed with material such as plywood or lumber boards. An Open Crate is one that (typically) uses lumber for sheathing. The sheathing is typically gapped by at various distances. Typically when the gap between boards is greater than the distance required for expansion, the crate would be considered an open crate. A Framed Crate is one that only contains a skeletal structure and no material is added for surface or pilferage protection

Cases Cases are fully-enclosed timber boxes. They are assembled such that the individual panels butt against each other, leaving no gaps and providing maximum protection. A case offers increased damage protection with an added level of security. Cases can be lined with for better waterproof protection. Cases offer a stronger alternative if stacking. Ply cases and MDF cases are fully enclosed and are lighter than all structural pine cases. Our plywood is manufactured by gluing together layers of wooden sheets. The resistance to cracking, shrinkage, twisting/warping, and strength makes it perfect for all conditions. Our cases are fully customised to your specifications, and so we can happily cater for any design stipulations, such as cut-out windows for example. We offer also offer steel framing on our plywood cases for extra-durability. (See steel-framed cases for more detail)

Skids, Pallets, Scallops, Cradles and Gluts Skids and Pallets Skids are the simplest form of pallet consisting of only top boards and bearers. The most common form of pallet has top boards, bearers and bottom boards. We can also manufacture pallet bases, suitable for machinery and heavy items. Aussie Crates have the experience to manufacture pallets and skids of any size, having previously manufactured pallets and skids over 12 metres long, four metres wide and supporting up to 20 tonnes. These are often used for one way consignments due to their lower cost. We can design and manufacture one-offs or large quantities of pallets.

Scallops and Cradles Cradles and Scallops can be custom designed and manufactured to hold singular or multiple cylindrical items, such as pipes, and are strong enough to hold diverse weights. They can be used in conjunction with other timber products, or stand-alone supports only.

Gluts Timber gluts are the ideal choice if you need to transport heavy machinery and support your item ensuring your shipment is secure during transport. Aussie Crates can customise your timber glut to any individual specification to meet any timber treatments, labelling, shape, size or strapping requirements.

Pallet Notching Timber pallets fall into two general categories:

 

 Two-Way Entry Pallets - allow access from two directions only.   Four-Way Entry Pallets - allow access from all four sides of the pallet 

Aussie Crates can notch cut into pallets allowing "four-way" entry which offers greater flexibility, whilst two-way pallets offer greater strength. It is important to consider whether it is necessary for you or your client to access the pallet from all four sides, or from two directions only. One of our friendly team members will be able to advise you on this when discussing the project with you.
