Bespoke Packing Crates Are out of This World!

Astrium, part of the EADS Group, and a long standing customer of Trifibre recently requested a Packing Crate for the urgent air shipment of parts to Japan. Upon further investigation, the payload was a little different to our normal requests. A pre-programmed terminal was being sent to a client for the launch of an Orbital satellite. With this delicate payload in mind, Trifibre set about designing the most appropriate shipping solution. A heavy duty ply crate to meet ISPM15 was designed, with front opening doors with TSA butterfly catches and provisions to bolt the door securely for transit. Inside, specifically designed polymeric foam pads were strategically located to cushion the load. For special packing crates please contact us.

Airbus Sales Take Off

In August we announced that Airbus had successfully secured more global sales for their range of aircraft. In response to this, Trifibre have increased their own to production of specialised containers to cater for the uplift in demand. Over the past several months, Trifibre have been working on a number of projects for Airbus and their affiliates which cover a wide section of the aircraft airframe. Consequently our R&D facility has been kept very busy working on new designs. Our most recent delivery this week has been for a range of curtain sided metal containers that have been designed specifically to take a pair of dorsal fins for the A320. The containers, which are also fitted with customised metal pallets, […]

Safely in the Box

One side of Trifibre’s business that is often over looked is the supply of specialised crates and containers for shipping large manufactured parts and equipment to all points on the globe. The manufacture of customised plywood crates is a cost effective method of transportation, often supplemented with specialised CNC machined foam inserts for block and brace as well as for impact and vibration absorption. One of our regular clients, who ship specialised weights and measures equipment around the world, ordered this particular palletised crate for a machine being sent to the USA. In addition to the simple bracing arrangements, the customer always specifies heated treated and certified timber for international export as well as waterproof membrane so that the crate […]

Bespoke Aluminium Shipping Containers

I started to work with Dunlop Trelleborg approximately 18 months ago, they approached us looking for a company to work with on the design of a protective container to house their client’s shipping fenders, the fenders that Dunlop manufacture are used in emergency proceedures – if there are oil leeks / spillages to contain them, if a ship needs assistance whilst at sea, the fenders are blown up to size to prevent ships ‘coming together’ and to stop impact damage. The remit was to provide a container that would be weather proof, sea proof, one that could accomodate the 2 tonne fender to be readily accessible as it would need to be removed from the container and actioned with the […]
