BITO Storage Solutions is introducing its new EQ range of collapsible containers at IMHX 2016 as a space saving Euro-container option for transporting goods – folding the sides of an empty EQ container saves up to 75% on volume.
Sized 600 x 400 mm at the base, the EQ container has two height options: 285 mm and 320 mm. Both versions can accommodate loads of up to 20kg. Depending on use, the ribbed base or double base options provide additional strength and rigidity, which means the EQ can be used in automated warehouses and double base options can take loads up to 50 kg.
To reduce the risk of squeezing fingers, which can be a common issue on other similar containers, while also maintaining handling efficiency, the EQ has been designed with an innovative ‘seesaw’ locking/unlocking profile on its short sides. This allows the sides to lock open with a simple push on the box shoulder using thumb or the heel of the hand.
Options for the EQ container include permanently attached interlocking lids, tamper evident security seals and a fold-up grip that allows convenient carrying of filled boxes. Address labels can be inserted into the inside label holders – a transparent window cover allows clear visibility from the outside. Labels fitted inside are loss-proof and keep the box sides clean from sticky labels thus avoiding time-consuming removal of glue residue.
