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.
Full Flap Bottoms
These boxes have closed off bottom and are great for storing bulk goods. They typically range in size from aroun 48 x 40 x 40 and are more expensive than partial flap bottoms

Full Flap vs Partial Gaylords
Full Flap Octagon
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.
WHAT IS A GAYLORD BOX?
Often, people outside the industry have questions about Gaylord boxes. They have an interesting name, don’t they? The Gaylord box is one of the most common types of bulk packaging used in the packaging of a large pallet-sized, corrugated cardboard box (known after the company that originally developed the box). You may have seen watermelons in huge boxes at your local supermarket and if you did, then you would be looking at a Gaylord box. As you can see, they come in different sizes, shapes, wall thicknesses, and they come with different options for tops and bottoms as well.
Generally speaking, Gaylord boxes can be divided into three types…
- Rectangle (REC)
- Octagon (OCT)
- High Performance Tote (HPT)
Types of Gaylord Boxes
It is common knowledge that rectangles have four sides whereas octagons have eight sides, but what do rectangles and octagons have to do with boxes? Because of their shape, they are able to provide different levels of strength for different purposes. There is a tendency for octobins (boxes shaped like an octogon) to be stronger at their corners because the weight of the box is distributed evenly over these extra corners. Because rectangles tend to hold their shape more easily than other shapes, they tend to be 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. The choice you make depends on the purpose for which the boxes will be used. The shape of the box may be more important if you are using machinery to fill or empty it.
We will now discuss the HPT: High Performance Tote (a registered trademark of TOTECO Packaging Company). There are flaps on both the top and bottom of this heavy-duty rectangle box. Stackable HPTs can be constructed with four to six walls with optionable corner posts that enable stacking up to six high in freezer facilities and can be used in multiple applications. The HPT is specifically designed to be used for storing frozen vegetables when they are first produced. They are highly valued for recycling commodities, such as plastics and metals, when they are no longer considered useful in the freezer industry. Due to their heavy construction and overall weight, they are often referred to as the “Cadillac” of used Gaylords. The boxes are extremely durable.

Types of bottoms and tops
The term “regular-slotted container” (RSC) refers to any box that has four flaps on the top and bottom of the box. The great thing about this is that there is no need for a separate lid that can be lost, which is an advantage. It is not uncommon for used RSC boxes to be used in the recycling of various commodities, and when they are new, they are often used in the shipping of food ingredients as well. 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.
