Here’s an FAQ about this different style of pallet box in case it’s all new to you.
What are octabins?
Octabins are an octagonal-shaped pallet box – a large cardboard box designed to be loaded onto a pallet for storage or shipping.
What are octabins used for?
Octabins have a wide range of uses, similar to pallet boxes. They are often used to store and transport large, heavy and bulky items. They are popular with industrial and agricultural businesses, as well as general wholesalers. Construction materials like sand are a good example of a product that is stored and shipped in octabins.
Do Sadlers octobins come with pallets?
No, we offer our octabins without pallets. This makes them a low cost option. We encourage businesses to use second hand pallets they may already have in their warehouses and storage facilities.
What is the height of an octabin?
Our octabins measure 1080mm, or 42.5 inches in height.
Can you stack octabins?
Yes, octabins are designed to be stacked. Our octabins are a heavy duty triple wall construction with stitching and therefore very strong.
Are octabins always made from cardboard?
No, you can buy wooden or steel octobins as well as cardboard ones. Cardboard is the cheapest option, but still provides excellent strength and durability.
Are octabins environmentally friendly?
Our used octabins are extremely environmentally friendly. Not only is cardboard recyclable, it’s also reusable. We specialise in used cardboard boxes like these ones because they are the low-cost, eco-friendly choice.
Do they come flat packed or made up?
Our octabin sleeves, bases and lids come flat packed on a pallet and are easy to assemble.
We hope this has been a helpful rundown to celebrate our new supply of these fantastic storage and transport options.
