Basic dimensions up to 800 x 600 mm, the best volume reduction when empty and simple handling - folding boxes are allround talents on the multi-trip market. In 1978, WALTHER Faltsysteme developed the first folding and collapsible containers for the German market. The secret of the success of the frequently copied originals from Kevelaer: by folding or collapsing the side walls, even large-volumen boxes turn into small units, saving up to 80% of the transport volume on the return transport.
The biggest advantage of foldable containers is obvious: when they are not needed, they can easily be folded into flat units and take up only a fraction of the original space during transport or storage. That way, up to 80% of their volume is gained and can be used for other storage purposes. With proper handling, the foldable plastic containers have a long service life due to their high-quality workmanship and the robust material. Thanks to their optimal design and compliance with standard dimensions, the foldable plastic boxes are also ideal for stacking.
A high degree of flexibility often goes along with increasing instability due to changes in shape. However, our container solutions succeed in reconciling the luxury of stability with considerable space savings. Even though containers and boxes can be folded down tight, they can tolerate a lot and can also be stacked on top of each other without any problems. Get it all when you get a new container solution: save space with a folding box or a collapsible box, and benefit from the stability and high quality of WALTHER products.
The difference between collapsible and foldable containers can make a big difference depending on their use. But which type of container is best for your application? Collapsible boxes are mostly known in the food market. They are used to store fruit and vegetable and are usually green. The walls of collapsible boxes can be folded down in just a few steps and the floor has small holes for better ventilation. The volume of folding boxes, on the other hand, can be reduced by folding down their long side walls via a centre hinge. Unlike collapsible boxes, folding boxes do not have a perforated base and the sides are closed to prevent small parts from falling out. They are mainly used in the non-food sector or for dry goods. Both versions are not only available as boxes, but also as large foldable or collapsible containers.
