For despatch departments battling with large and irregular shaped products, wider fanfold and more supplier choice is excellent news.

Fanfold corrugated board offers huge savings in space, inventory, manpower and almost no waste so it is an ideal solution for many businesses.

Fanfold corrugated packaging is easier to handle than long or large unfolded sheets and ideal for products of unusual lengths and shapes. Fanfold is widely used by bespoke kitchen makers and manufacturers of steel radiators, windows, doorframes and blinds and many similar shaped products. All can now benefit from the advantages of fanfold corrugated board for packaging even larger products.

With an existing 1.8m wide fanfold production in Leeds, Encase has just installed a second, new 2.5m wide fanfold capability in Banbury. Only Encase has fanfold at two UK sites which are supported by specialists and a nationwide customer support team. The company-wide computer database supports both operations which uniquely gives customers the security of contingency and two-site back up as well as the Encase capacity to run the same job in parallel on two sites.

Also unique to Encase is the brand new EcoWall range of boards. EcoWall now increases the fanfold range to include seven different flute combinations. The range varies from very thin, single wall E, C, and B flutes through to heavy-duty BB, BC, EB and EC flutes. All Encase fanfold is up to 2.5m wide, creased from 1m to 1.5m, palletised in lengths of 3-500m and supplied plain or with pre-printed repeated designs.
