Dimensions must be entered as shown in the diagram below. We recomended adding 1/4" to the Length and Width of your object and 1/8" to the Height to determine interior dimensions. If you plan to wrap your object in tissue paper or other materials, allow adequate additional room.

*Height must be the vertical dimension. Length must be the longer horizontal dimension (of Length and Width).

    Barrier board - Comes standard with metal edges and ships assembled.

    Corrugated board - Ships flat and requires assembly.

    B-flute Corrugated B-flute Corrugated
    • Best for large boxes and storing heavy objects
    • 1/8" thick - provides greater puncture resistance and cushioning
    • 47 flutes per linear foot - delivers all-around performance and good stacking strength

    E-flute Corrugated E-flute Corrugated
    • Best for small, lightweight objects, documents, small textiles, shoes, etc.
    • 1/16" thick - saves vertical storage space for unassembled boxes and reduces bulk in assembled boxes
    • 90 flutes per linear foot - creates a more rigid surface with excellent crush resistance

    Buffered - Buffered materials have an alkaline reserve, or buffer, to counteract acids that may form in the material in the future. Cellulose fibers (e.g., cotton, flax, linen, jute) and plant-based specimens should be stored in buffered material to protect against migrant acidity.

    Unbuffered - Artifacts that contain animal proteins (e.g., wool, silk, leather, feathers, pearls) are best stored in unbuffered material. If textile fiber content or dyes are unknown, choose unbuffered. Blueprints should never come in contact with buffered material, and many archivists also prefer to store albumen prints and cyanotypes in unbuffered material. Since buffering agents don’t migrate, a buffered box can be used if unbuffered tissue or wrapping material surrounds the item.

    DuraShield™ - A clear, matte laminate coating that resists moisture, fingerprints and abrasions.
