[Strongbox]
 Offers plywood strength without the weight and expense.

Each STRONGBOX comes with three layers of foam protection in a strong humidity-resistant 350 lb. single wall or 500 lb./71 ECT double wall corrugated cardboard. STRONGBOXES are also available with Puncture-Guard hard plastic liners ensuring extra safety for expensive art work.

Framed art work is safely encased in three layers of protection. One layer is sandwiched between two layers of convoluted (egg carton) foam. Customize the middle foam layer by removing perforated squares to form an opening that snugly encases the art work. Multiple layers provide superior shock absorption.

STRONGBOXES provide an inexpensive and reuseable shipping carton suitable for land and air transit with excellent damage survival qualities to withstand UPS, U.S. Mail and air courier handling.

FOR PROPER FITTING AND SAFETY
Allow 2" to 3" on the sides, top and bottom and 1" in depth of the internal dimensions of the Strongbox for safety. See Maximum Frame Sizes recommended in the chart below. More than one framed artwork in each box is not recommended.

NEW STRONGBOX SIZES
In response to many requests, four new sizes in both lines and unlined versions have been added to accommodate deeper frames which are frequently antique. Internal dimensions of these new sizes:

  • 35" x 62" x 4"
  • 62" x 62" x 5"
  • 40" x 45" x 7.5"
  • 43" x 82" x 4"

  • Refer to the Maximum Frame Sizes to ensure proper fitting.

    We are proud to introduce our brand new line of MasterPak Art Shipping Boxes which are available in both Premium and Standard quality levels. Masterpak Art Shipping Boxes have replaced the retired Strongbox product shown at left.

    Premium MasterPak Boxes are carefully engineered to combine the highest quality components available anywhere in the marketplace. Despite the higher quality involved and rising costs, we have kept pricing on the Premium lines the same and sometimes less than the old Strongbox offering.

    Premium MasterPaks incorporate the strongest grades of Corrugated and highest quality Foams. They prominently display their BMC Certificates which verify their strength and the Test they have passed. The Premium line is further identified by our Atlas logo.

    Premium MasterPaks are available in 23 sizes – including two new sizes to accommodate deeper and frequently Antique frames.

    Standard MasterPaks, available in fewer sizes, are more comparable in quality to Strongbox, and they are priced everyday at 20% less.

    MasterPaks can ship from any of our 3 locations (New York, Memphis or Los Angeles) thus minimizing delivery time and cost to you.

    MasterPak Art Shipping Boxes are replacing Strongbox. Please visit MasterPak Art Shipping Boxes for further details.
