Recycled foam endcaps
Foam endcaps are the best solution for packaging fragile goods. Created from our “revive” recycled foam line, they are custom designed to fit your product so that it will be suspended inside the box during transport. All of our foam endcaps are custom designed to offer the best protective solution, at the best price.
Hinged foam end caps
Foam endcaps are the best solution for packaging fragile goods. Hinge style endcaps are created using foam that has a denser blue layer that is cut in specific places only. With this method called “kisscutting”, the blue layer will act as a hinge and create an endcap that is shipped flat and can be easily constructed when needed.
