It’s a frustration we’ve all had. Trying to pick off the tape or bash a box open with our fist, before finally searching for a knife or scissors. We’ve all had the same thought, "there’s gotta be a better way!”
So we set to work. We structurally analysed, we environmentally pondered and we ergonomically engineered, and after many prototypes we invented the opening system that’s just so... Simpull.
It's easy to use and super quick. Simpull is a clever perforation formation that allows a taped up box to be opened with just one hand. By removing the need for a knife, the Simpull box:
Allows instant access to save time and money
Eliminates accidental knife damage to contents
Prevents the risk and cost of knife injuries
Applicable to almost any size box and essential to getting more done, Simpull makes you wonder 'why hasn’t this been done before’.
A popular quick service restaurant chain needs a solution to their frozen fries dilemma.
In a fast paced workplace, and restricted from using knives, staff find a quick way to open a frozen fries box is to bash the side to pull off the tape. However, this breaks the fragile fries into shorter lengths, requiring a larger portion of the product to fill their customers’ cartons - effectively giving fries away!
Simpull Box has solved it. It's quick and easy, yet safe and gentle to open, and does not damage the frozen fries. The small change over to Simpull Box will make a big impact for the quick service restaurant chain, saving the company millions of dollars every year, while improving operations for their employees.
It’s like a magician’s sleight of hand. Simpull quickly separates the tape from the cardboard in one clean move without damage. Combined with its independently tested structural integrity, the Simpull box:
Significantly extends the reusable life of the box
Improves recyclability to help meet sustainability requirements
Delivers contents as securely as a traditional box
Remarkably simple to implement into existing production lines, the Simpull patented opening system easily provides a better experience for all, while helping meet sustainable packaging regulatory obligations such as the Australian Packaging Covenant.
There are a number of undesirable factors with using hot melt adhesives to close a box including the strong smells, and injuries handling the extremely hot equipment. By comparison, the adhesive tape that closes a Simpull Box:
Seals and protects the contents from pests, dust and moisture
Does not melt or become brittle in hot or cold environments
Is not difficult to break the adhesive bond and open the box
Decreases the costs of recycling and improves pulp quality
Most, if not all, common types of adhesive tape can be used with Simpull Box. Paper-based water-activated adhesive tapes are the most environmentally friendly option, followed by paper-based pressure-sensitive tapes.
