Frequently Asked Questions

Corrugated cardboard boxes are made of various layers of cardboard glued together. The corrugated or wavy pattern of inside the layer of cardboard is called fluting. There are different types of fluting, and it gives corrugated cardboard its different strength and performance properties.

The most basic corrugated cardboard box is a single wall box. This is when a single layer of corrugated material is sandwiched between two flat layers of cardboard. Single wall boxes.

A double wall cardboard box has two layers of corrugated material or fluting. You can also get triple wall boxes, which are extra heavy duty.
