4GV Packaging Explained
4GV boxes for non-specific inner packagings
4GV boxes are a popular choice for shippers wishing to use their own inner packaging containers, unlike 4G boxes, which require the use of specific approved-with inners.
Our range of 4GV fibreboard boxes allows you to ship up to a maximum gross weight of 65Kg. All of our 4GV boxes come complete with plastic liner bag. Vermiculite or Biodegradable Chips (supplied separately) will also be required to provide cushioning for the inner packagings during transport – The product’s assembly sheet will state whether Vermiculite or Biodegradable Chips must be used.
If you’re unsure as to how much vermiculite or bio chips you need, then contact us for assistance. We’ll be able to calculate how much you will need by identifying the void space within your packaging.
Assembly Sheets & 4GV weight allowance
An assembly sheet is available to download for all our 4GV products. this clarifies weight allowances and provides assembly instructions enabling shippers to package the dangerous goods compliantly. The 4GV packaging must be packed and assembled in exactly the same way as was during the testing process, otherwise you will invalidate the certification.
We also have a range of hazard labels to ensure that your dangerous goods packagings remain compliant.
