Paper edge protector is a type of packaging material that is used to protect the edges of objects during shipping and handling. It is made of a folded piece of paperboard that is shaped like a V. The two legs of the V are inserted into the corners of the object, and the top of the V is secured with tape or glue. This helps to prevent the corners of the object from being damaged during shipping.
To use a paper edge protector for a pallet, follow these steps:
- Place the pallet on a flat surface.
- Measure the height and width of the pallet.
- Cut the paper edge protector to size.
- Apply a strip of double-sided tape to the back of the paper edge protector.
- Place the paper edge protector on the corner of the pallet, with the double-sided tape facing down.
- Press down on the cardboard corner to secure it to the pallet.
- Repeat steps 4-6 for each corner of the pallet.
Once the paper cardboard corners are in place, you can secure the pallet with stretch wrap or strapping.
Here are some additional tips for using paper edge protectors on pallets:
- Make sure that the paper edge protectors are the correct size for the pallet. If the edge protectors are too small, they will not provide adequate protection. If the edge protectors are too large, they may be difficult to secure to the pallet.
- Use double-sided tape to secure the paper edge protectors to the pallet. This will help to ensure that the edge protectors stay in place during shipping and handling.
- If you are shipping the pallet on a long distance, you may want to use additional protection, such as stretch wrap or strapping. This will help to keep the pallet and its contents secure.
Paper edge protectors are an effective and inexpensive way to protect pallets during shipping and handling. By following the steps above, you can ensure that your pallets arrive at their destination safely and securely.
