Polythene plastic is 37.5 micron/150 gauge thickness. Mattress bags are an easy and affordable solution for transporting and storing mattress. Below, please see a guide to typical bed sizes available in Ireland and the UK. As you will see, the mattress covers are deliberately slightly bigger than the mattresses to allow for them to be put on easily. It may be daunting to try to get a mattress into a bag on your own, and indeed a task like this is best done with at least two people. However, it is possible, and we have detailed the technique on our Box Depot Blog if you need instruction on how simple it can be.

Size: 500mm x 750mm Available in quantities of 50 sheets, 100 sheets or a full ream Unprinted newsprint paper is ideal for wrapping glassware and ceramics Protect crockery, china, ornaments and general household breakables, Packing paper prevents chipping and scratching by direct contact. Packing paper can absorb shocks when goods are in transit. Packing Paper has to be the ultimate in recycled and eco-friendly packaging. It was invented in 1844 by John Fenerty in Canada as a low-cost but strong paper that newspaper printers could use. It is naturally not the "bright white" that you would see with, for example, office printing paper, as it is manufactured without any chemical processes ... which means it's eco-friendly. And to make it even more eco-friendly ... during the printing of newspapers, the paper is cut down to "newspaper" size. Rather than being disposed of as waste, the offcuts are used as the Packing Paper that you are now considering buying!

Size: 400mm x 250 metres Type: 17 microns (industrial standard!) Extended Core for ease of use Ideal for wrapping non-fragile items when moving house! When transporting goods/possessions, they need to be packed efficiently and securely. Pallet wrap is the most efficient and secure method of keeping multiple non-fragile items together. Our pallet wrap has high levels of elasticity and cling - elasticity will keep the goods tight and secure in transit; cling allows the film to adhere to itself so that it doesn't come loose or open during transit. Pallet wrap is used extensively in industry as it is so easy to use, and items are kept secure. Why not try it yourself?! For larger quantities, please contact us! Manufactured by Thermic Recycling. Suitable for Recycling
Size: 500mm x 700mm Paper: 17gsm Machine Glazed Type: Unbuffered Ideal for packaging, interleaving and general purpose protection. This Unbuffered Acid Free Tissue Paper will add extra protection to items that you need to store. Acid Free means that the tissue is free of acids that will cause it to deteriorate over time and damage the items that it touches. Unbuffered tissue lacks the buffering reserve to prevent future acidity. It is used with materials that are sensitive to a higher pH level. Unbuffered White Acid Free Tissue Paper can be used to protect: natural fibre clothing (eg: linen, cotton, wool, silk), textiles (eg quilts), heirloom clothing (eg wedding gowns/veils), leather, jewellery, sterling silver, and all collectibles. Acid Free Tissue is so called because if it is immersed and infused in water it yields a neutral pH (7). Paper that is made from wood-based pulp that has not had it's lignin content removed will be naturally slightly off-white (like Packing Paper) and will deteriorate over time. In the 1930s, William Barrow, who was a chemist as well as a librarian, reported on the deterioration of acidic papers in the libraries where he worked. Measures were taken to improve the quality of the papers used. Acid Free Tissue is treated with a mild base (usually calcium or magnesium bicarbonate) to neutralise the natural acids occurring in wood-pulp. This means that Acid Free Tissue Paper (or Alkaline Paper, as it can be known as) has an approximate life expectancy of approximately 500 years. This gives huge preservation benefits to whatever it is used or wrapped in.# Because there are fewer corrosive chemicals used in the making of Acid Free Tissue, the manufacture process is considered significantly more environmentally friendly ... waste water and paper by-products can be recycled, energy can be saved in the drying abnd refining process, and Acid Free Tissue can be easily recycled.

Bullet Tip Permanent and indelible Xylene Free Waterproof This black marker comes with a long-lasting ink that can be used on almost all surfaces, including plastic, wood and metal, as well as your cardboard boxes when you're moving house. If you are moving house and have packed up a number of cardboard boxes, they can all start to look the same once they are sealed, unless you have labelled them! And a black marker can be essential for this task. With a low odour and quick-drying ink, these markers are also Xylene- and Toluene-Free. The chunky barrel provides a firm grip, increasing control and comfort. With a bullet tip, these markers provide a consistent-width line suitable for handwriting.
Size: 48mm x 66 metres Type: Polypropylene Appearance: White background with Red Text It is easy to be flippant about the humble roll of sealing tape, but humans have been trying to create sealants for an awfully long time! There's records dating back to 4,000BC of earthenware pots being sealed with tree resin sap. By 2,000BC there are written instructions on how to make your own fish glue (not really recommended these days!) but the first patent for an adhesive was issued in 1750 in Great Britain, made of fish glue! Thankfully fish glue is not a "thing" these days! The first appearance of adhesive tape was in 1845, and was used primarily by forward-thinking surgeons of the day. The Sealing Tape offered here is a pressure-sensitive adhesive coated onto a polypropylene film. The tape can be applied by hand or with a tape gun. Simply by running your hand over the applied tape, you can ensure the pressure-sensitive adhesive is properly applied so the tape stays in place. Ideal for securing and sealing boxes, parcels and other packages, this polypropylene tape provides strong, waterproof adhesion to help protect items in transit. A white tape with "Fragile" repeated in red text, this tape will draw attention to ensure it is handled with care. Although the idea of covering your box or package with Fragile Tape may feel like you've done everything possible to prevent breakages, it is not a substitute for using voidfill and protective packaging to ensure your box or package is adequately protected!
Ergonomic Pistol Grip Takes tape rolls up to 50mm Easy to use Fits all 50mm sealing tapes. Holds tape up to 50mm (2") wide on a 3" core. Easy to dispense the tape with just one hand. SImply apply the tape end, roll the tape gun across the carton, tilt the tape gun and cut - it's that easy! Intuitive pistol-grip handle. Never struggle to find the end of the roll (or end up cutting it with your teeth!) again. Designed for comfort and ease of use Before tape guns were invented, tape came from a roll that was peeled from the end and cut with scissors (it's still perfectly acceptable to do this, even cutting with a knife!) The tape gun was invented in 1932 by John Barden who worked at 3M. It had a built-in cutting mechanism and would hold the cut end of the tape ready until it's next use ... and hasn't changed that principle after all these years!
110mm x 150mm Perfect for labelling your boxes for moving! 10 labels per pack Save time and stress less! Without exception, pretty much every moving house guide or packing guide will tell you to label your boxes when moving! And it's good advice too ... it's all very well knowing that you've packed up your kitchen and have all the boxes stacked against the wall. But what happens when you get to your new home? And your "kitchen" boxes somehow end up in the bedroom?! It's not an understatement to say it could take days to find a particular item you need when you are faced with 20+ boxes with no identification whatsoever on them! These plain white labels are a great solution. They are large enough to be useful when handwriting on them. And the strong adhesive backing means that they will stay on the box that they identify!
