Twistlock Box

The foldable Twistlock Box with an innovative active locking system is easy to use and can be folded and built up again in next to no time.


Optimal goods presentation

The Twistlock Box is a foldable reusable packaging with a new “active locking system“. This enables the box to be swiftly folded and set up again. It can be stacked with all boxes currently on the market which fulfil the ISO standard. Boxes with base dimensions 600 mm x 400 mm and 300 mm x 400 mm can also be stacked together.

The Twistlock Box has a very robust design. When stacked, it can support a static weight of 500 kg and a dynamic weight of 300 kg. It thus reduces the risk of breakage during transport and commissioning and also increases the handling speed.  Broken components can be replaced and the box thus repaired. This increases the product’s lifespan! Although the Twistlock Box is very sturdy, it only has very little ribbing. This prevents a lot of dirt from settling. Less water is required for cleaning and the box can be dried more easily.

Especially loose and sensitive goods such as i.e. fruit and vegetables find optimal protection in the Twistlock Box thanks to its smooth interior surfaces. The model equipped with a ventilation opening ensures optimal ventilation during the cooling process.

During the development of the Twistlock Box, great importance was attached to a modern and attractive design. This supports the presentation at the Point of Sale!

The Twistlock Box is the ideal packaging when it comes to reducing process costs. The optimized ratio of useable inner volume to size of the box guarantees a high capacity utilization of pallets, roller container, dollies etc. The Twistlock Box can be folded down to a height of just 28 mm when empty.  This enables large savings to be made with the storage and transport of empties. A fully loaded lorry can carry more than 10,000 folded boxes. This saves money and reduces CO2-emissions during transport!

The Twistlock Box is made from polypropylene. This material is nice to touch and causes less noise on automated systems than other comparable synthetic materials.
At the end of its life cycle, the Twistlock Box is recycled and used for the production of new Twistlock Boxes. This contributes to sustainability and gives the Twistlock Box the gift of a second life!

The Twistlock Box will be available in several different sizes from Cabka_IPS in the future. The product range will comprise different heights with the base dimensions 600 mm x 400 mm and 300 mm x 400 mm.
