Here at Datec you’ll find a comprehensive range of retention packaging systems designed and developed to give maximum product protection and professional presentation. Retention packaging is a system which retains a product in the centre of a carton without the need for expensive voidfill and cushioning materials, not only creating a crumple zone around the item but also presenting the product in a very professional manner.
Retention packaging systems minimise packing materials down to a thin sheet of polythene which is very well received by environmentally conscious customers looking for the minimum amount of wasted packaging, the clear film also presents your product in a clean and tidy manner which looks very professional. Find out more about the two main retention packaging systems below.
Retention Packaging is a method of packaging which uses a thin film to hold or retain the item being packaged, the space around the product then becomes a protective crumple zone around the item. There are generally two types of retention packaging; one uses a sheet of film which is pre-glued to a cardboard base, the other utilises a machine to wrap a plastic film around both the product and the cardboard base. This cardboard base is then fitted into an outer transit box creating a high performance shipping solution that protects your product like no other.
Suspension packaging is a three part system that is similar in principle to a retention packaging system, the difference being that the item being packed is sandwiched between two layers of polythene film and suspended in the centre of the carton. The two layers of film act in a similar way to suspension on a car, ironing out the bumps and bashes your parcel encounters during a transit period. Suspension packaging is often used for larger and more delicate products that need softer cushioning than other protective packaging can give.
