Basic Nailess Solution Now Available

What is BNS?

The Basic Nailess Solution (BNS) is a sturdy, long lasting packing option made of metal and plywood. This combination of materials produces a light and exceptionally strong box for your shipping and packaging needs. Premium materials used in the crate’s construction ensure durability. Birch plywood keeps the paneling lightweight without compromising integrity. Steel chamfered edges offer superior safety during handling. Galvanized metal corners, lid band, and joint fasteners provide the strength of a standard cleated plywood crate.
