Partial Flap Bottoms
Partial flaps on the bottom secure the box once it is put up. Having a partial flap on the bottom, these boxes require a separate slip sheet to cover the area in the center of the box left open by the flaps. The boxes are widely used in the plastic recycling industry. They take up little space in a truck and are a cheaper option than a full-flap box. Extra height when stacking is why this box is a common choice of many recycling streams.

an WHAT IS A GAYLORD BOX?
Gaylord boxes often get questions from outside the industry. Known after the company that originally created the box, the Gaylord box is one of the most common types of bulk packaging. Those huge boxes of watermelons at your local supermarket are Gaylord boxes. The tops and bottoms come in different sizes, shapes, wall thicknesses, and options for tops and bottoms.
Generally speaking, Gaylord boxes can be divided into three types…
- Rectangle (REC)
- Octagon (OCT)
- High Performance Tote (HPT)
Types of Used Gaylord Boxes and Bulk Bins
There are four sides to rectangles and eight sides to octagons, but what do rectangles and octagons have to do with boxes? Due to their shape, they can provide different levels of strength. Due to the weight of the box being evenly distributed over these extra corners, octobins (boxes shaped like octogons) tend to be stronger at their corners. The rectangle holds its shape better than other shapes, so it’s easier to set up and use. As a result, they are also easier for most users to fill and empty than other types of containers. Choosing the right box depends on what you’re using it for. If you’re using machinery to fill or empty the box, the shape may be more important.
Let’s talk about the HPT: High Performance Tote (a registered trademark of TOTECO Packaging Company). Heavy-duty rectangle box has flaps on top and bottom. These stackable HPTs can be built with four to six walls and can be stacked up to six high in freezer facilities. They can be used for a lot of things, too. When frozen vegetables are first produced, the HPT is specifically designed to store them. Once they’re no longer useful to the freezer industry, they’re highly valued for recycling commodities like plastic and metal. It’s no surprise that they’re often called the “Cadillac” of used Gaylords because of their heavy construction. Boxes are super durable.
Bulk Bin /Gaylord box sizes, walls, and flaps
Gaylord boxes come in a variety of sizes. As most Gaylords are placed on pallets for easy transport and stacking, they usually match the dimensions of a standard pallet: 48″ x 40″. The most common boxes are 48″ x 40″; however, there are some bigger and smaller ones too. Our boxes range in height from 30″ to 57″, with 36″ – 48″ being the most common.
It’s the strength and the vertical compression that determine the thickness of the wall. It’s easy to count how many flutes (wave-shaped cardboard material) are on the side of a box. A flute with one wall is called a single-wall flute, a flute with two walls is called a double-wall flute, etc. Corrugated fiberboard boxes with more layers are stronger and more resistant to vertical compression. It’s usually 4 or 5 walls.
How do we determine how much a box is worth?
We will take into consideration the following factors and work with you to come to a reasonable agreement
- Pictures of the boxes
- Amount of boxes
- Amount per pick up
5 Wall (PLY) near me
5 wall or 5 ply, Containers are made out of a corrugated fiberboard material Corrugated cardboard. 5 ply Gaylords are designed with 5 layers of this carboard, giving them strength and reliability. They are capable of carrying well over 1500 pounds per box.
4 Wall (PLY)
4 Wall or 4 ply Gaylords are made with 4 layers of this corrugated cardboard, making them stronger and more durable than thinner boxes.
They are capable of carrying well over 1200 pounds per box. You can fit roughly 500 boxes on a dry van truck.
3 Wall (PLY)
- The most common dimensions are 48 x 40″ size with heights of 24, 36, and 48″.
These Boxes are 3 layers of cardboard thick
2 Wall (PLY)
2-wall Gaylord Boxes have a double layer of cardboard, for their strength and weight capacity.
Types of bottoms and tops
Boxes with four flaps on top and bottom are called regular-slotted containers (RSCs). You don’t have to worry about losing a separate lid, which is really cool. Used RSC boxes are often used in recycling various commodities, and when they’re new, they’re often used for shipping food ingredients.
These boxes typically require tape on the flaps to secure them shut and can be made from one to five walls thick. If you are in need of a box to ship a valuable product or if you wish to prevent wandering eyes and sticky hands from viewing the product, then an RSC is the right thing to consider. Additionally, it is also a great box for protecting your products from damage during the shipping process. The shape of this box is typically rectangular in shape.
A half-slotted container (HSC)
This is any box with one set of flaps at the bottom, requiring a lid to seal the box. This type of bottom is also known as a full-flap bottom. Stacking an HSC is made easier with a flanged top. HSCs are commonly used in a variety of industries when they are new. They can range in thickness from one to eight walls.
It is common to re-use or re-purpose boxes that are no longer in use in the food industry or recycling industries. In cases where a poly liner or a lid is being used, many users choose an HSC. Various shapes and sizes are available, including rectangles and octagons.
A sleeve/tray/cap is a box that does not have any flaps on either the top or bottom of the box. In order to use this style of box, there is a separate tray that the box must sit in, and there is also a tray that covers the top of the box. It is possible to make these from one to six walls thick. Boxes of this type are typically useful only when they will be kept for a long period of time or if they will be used internally and shipped between locations within an organization. In any case, when a corrugated cap is used, these are one-trip, one-use containers that can be reused only once.
Full Flap Octagon Gaylords
The full-flap octagon (also called the octopbin) has a bottom flap that interlocks and is not secured with tape like other octagons. There is a wide range of thicknesses that can be used for these. If you want to seal the box, you need to use a separate lid if you want to do so. When it comes to shipping resin or plastic additives, octagonal boxes are often the first choice for plastic companies who choose to ship their goods in Gaylord containers for transportation. Stacking is made easier thanks to the additional surface points on the surface. There are many recycling commodities that can benefit from these bulk bins.
Partial Flap Bottom Octagons
An octagon with partial flaps (sometimes called a modified bottom) is a quadruple-wall box that has partial flaps on the bottom attached to locking tabs that allow it to be secured after it is erected once it is erected. In the case of boxes with partial flaps on the bottom, a separate sheet is required to cover the area in the center of the box left open by the short flaps. The majority of these boxes are used in the plastics industry when they are new. Boxes with full flap bottoms take up more space in a truck and are less economical than those with partial flap bottoms. Many recycling streams choose this box because of the added surface points that provide extra strength when stacking.
