Overpack Cartons Specifications

Overpack cartons are used to protect and secure non-leaking packages such as steel and plastic pails for transport. As overpacks are manufactured to provide additional protection, they are stronger and meet more strict requirements than regular shipping containers and cartons.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulates the movement of hazardous materials and has its own set of stringent design and manufacturing criteria and standards that must be met. These standards apply to drums, pails, cans, bags, and boxes, and they also apply to the quality and production of overpacks. Both our overpack cartons for steel pails and overpack cartons for plastic pails are manufactured to meet DOT requirements and are meant for accommodating pails between 40-60 lbs.

What’s Included With Overpack Cartons?

Our heavy-duty overpack cartons for steel pails and plastic pails are 275# test, tight fitting, and come with a 2-double wall, 275# test corrugated tray pads for top and bottom cushioning. Our overpack cartons for plastic pails are modified to ensure the proper security of the product.
