Full overlap containers, or FOLs, are a type of regular slotted container, the most popular shipping box available. While the flaps on a regular slotted container meet in the middle, FOLs have extended flaps that overlap one another. The overlap adds an extra layer of protection on the top and bottom of each box.
FOL boxes are stronger than standard boxes, allowing them to withstand more force against and stacked on top of them, which are essential functions for any shipping package.
You have endless options for using full overlap slotted containers. Businesses in almost every industry find FOLs ideal for certain items due to their extra rigidity and protective elements. At Custom Boxes Now, we recommend FOL style boxes for shipping:
