edge protectors

Securing cargo properly has always been a sensitive issue for general freight transport. During a sudden braking manoeuvre, there is an increased risk of accident if the freight shifts. Paper rolls, for instance, can only be secured by lashing them down, irrespective of whether or not they are in danger of toppling. In order to protect the edges of the paper rolls, the right kind of edge protectors need to be deployed. Because of their special shape and wide surface pressure distribution, edge protectors made of Tectan® provide ideal protection.

By using paper fibers (secondary resources) that come from 100% FSC-accredited plantations, fossil resources such as crude oil can be saved and substituted by renewable resources. During the manufacture of products made of Tectan® we ensure there is no negative ecological impact on the air, soil or water.

Tectan® products are suitable for multiple uses and can be 100% recycled again and used to create new products.
