Corner Protectors

Corner Protectors

cp-appliedCorner protectors are widely used as a cost effective, lightweight option for protecting the edges of palletized goods in transit. They are inexpensive enough to be considered disposable but are 100% recyclable. Note: our product is generally referred to as cornerboard, edge protectors, or V-board. Our corner protectors are great tools to consider when optimizing your pallet loading patterns. Our diagrams help maximize cubic feet per load while minimizing the costs of inflatable and cardboard dunnage, keeping your products safe, secure and damage-free.
