Show Crates & Reusable Crates
Reusable Crates, Trade Show Crates, Custom Crates
At Reid Packaging we design and manufacture a variety of Show Crates and other reusable crating solutions for shipping the same items multiple times. This reuse is perfect for cost-conscious and ecologically-conscious customers, like exhibitors who have a number of destinations in one show year.
Screws and Bolts
For the simplest and least expensive reusable crating specify screws instead of nails for assembled crates. With careful handling these crates will hold up to several uses. However, for a more durable solution, such as for Show Crates, we recommend bolts and hex or butterfly nuts. Specific hand tools are required for assembly.
Made from a special tensile and chemical composition of galvanized spring wire, Klimps were designed by spring engineers and are so reliable that the manufacturer guarantees them for life. For more than 50 years these fasteners have been used to make returnable and economical knock-down crates. Containers secured with Klimp® fasteners open and close quickly and easily for inspection or unloading, free of opening damage and ready for reloading and onward shipping.
Hinges and Hasps
Some of the most commonly requested reusable crates use hinged lids or swing open doors. The latter are often the style of choice for Trade Show Crates and are often designed with partitions or foam lined compartments. Many of these crates are built with attached or removable ramps to facilitate loading and unloading in facilities with no lift equipment.
