Open Slat Wooden Crates
Open slat wooden crates, as the term implies are made of wood and have open spaces between them. Wooden slats are screwed in a mesh or square pattern. These wooden slat crates can be easily dismantled. You can even use clips instead of screws, which is much easy. With this, you can easily protect the boxes or contents inside. Also, you can wrap a plastic sheet around this slat crate, if required. At BlueRose Packaging, we offer custom open slat wooden crates after going through the client requirement thoroughly. We believe so much in customization because that is what we have learned over the years from our experience. There is no standard product and each requirement is unique which needs to be met. These crates can be customized in terms of weight, size, and shape. We offer wholesale pricing for all the bulk orders of our open slat crates. Additionally, we are a quality-centric organization, and hence each and every product which is shipped out of here undergoes a stringent testing and inspection procedure.
