Hazmat Shipping Boxes

SORT BY:
Find the right hazmat boxes to safely ship hazardous materials to your customers. These boxes are special packaging containers for items you should handle with care. They help to prevent and contain content spillage. Goods commonly shipped with these cartons include paint cans, fire extinguishers, automotive and lithium batteries, and laboratory chemicals. You can find a wide selection of hazmat shipping boxes and other packaging supplies at Staples®.

Choose the Right Hazmat Boxes for Your Shipment
Cartons for shipping hazardous materials have clear and mandatory warnings printed on them. It is important to pick the right hazmat box for your package. It should have sufficient room for the inner package holding the items you want to be shipped. Inner packages are primary containers like plastic jugs, metal cans, and glass pitchers. Hazardous material box kits include these containers as well as foam packing materials.

You should also consider box strength when shopping for hazmat packaging supplies. These corrugated fiberboard cartons can have single or double walls. Double-wall units are stronger and ideal for transporting heavy items like liquids in metal cans.

Understand the Markings on UN Approved Hazmat Boxes
There are federal and international agencies that regulate the storage and transportation of hazardous materials. The most widely recognized system packaging labels is the UN specification. This categorizes hazmat packages by the type of materials shipped and the volume contained in them. The alphanumeric code starts with the United Nations symbol followed by a number for the type of packaging used and a letter denoting the construction material of the package. For example, the code identifies a hazmat box as 4G with 4 being the designation for box and G representing fiberboard. The letters and numbers that follow 4G specify packing group, maximum gross weight for solids or specific gravity for liquids, year of manufacture, country of origin, and manufacturer's unique code.

What Is the Difference Between 4G and 4GV Hazmat Boxes?
4GV represents a hazmat fiberboard box with a variable inner container. The 4G designation is more precise and stricter. It requires shippers to use the same inner packaging, box closure, and arrangement of contents employed during testing. With a 4GV shipment, you can use a different type of inner packaging and arrange the contents as you wish as long as you close the box, do not exceed its weight limit, and keep a minimum distance between the inner packaging and the walls of the hazmat box.

Should You Consider the ECT Scores of Hazmat Boxes?
Yes. The ECT, or Edge Crush Test, is a measure of resistance or compression strength of a shipping box. It indicates how much compressive force the walls of a box can withstand. The ECT value is an even more important consideration if you plan on stacking your hazmat shipping boxes.

Why Do Hazmat Boxes Have Two Directional Arrow Markings?
The two arrows pointing upwards indicate the top of a hazmat box. They help prevent spillage by serving as orientation guides so that those involved in packing, loading, transporting, and storing hazmat packages will not turn these shipping boxes on their side or upside down.
