U-Crate provides shaped channels that add strength, protection, and recycle ability in protecting tubes and glass products.  The product is part of the V-Board family of sustainable laminated paperboard products, which are made with 100% recyclable materials.  U-Crate is lighter than wood and avoids wood’s bug-stamping export issues.  U-Crate offers impact-resistance and scuff protection, as well as easy product top-loading and substantial beam strength without sacrificing shock absorption capabilities. This particular design allows savings in labor, freight, and warehouse space.
