Packaging is a story unto itself, something you want to work without having to think about it – preferably in a functional, user-friendly and environmentally friendly manner! We may as well say it: to achieve this goal, we have spent an inordinate amount of time simply thinking about packaging. Which means you don’t have to!
Most items are packed in Miniwell
Most packages from VSB are manufactured from FSC-labelled Miniwell. The package has a practical window in the lid which allows you to clearly see what screw it contains. The window is made of cellulose material, which makes the entire packaging recyclable as corrugated cardboard. A stable base makes it easy to stack on shelves without any screws protruding. Clear colour coding makes it easy to identify the right package. And yes, it looks great too! By continuously working on space optimisation, we have eliminated unnecessary air trapped in the packaging. As a bonus, optimisation not only gives a positive boost in the shop and for the customer; the environment also benefits from the reduction in transport and material consumption. We pack virtually all screws ourselves in Brämhult, which gives us the platform to ensure quality and avoid any damaged packaging.
Makes it easier to find on the shelf
To make it easy for customers to find what they are looking for, we pack the bulk of all screws and attachments in colour-coded packaging.
Each colour is linked to a specific product group. The coding makes it easy to see where the decking screws are stocked, or perhaps where to find chipboard screws. Decking screws come in yellow packages while chipboard screws are packed in red, etc. Similarly, the labels have the same colour-coded structure.
Jetting Screws, VSB’s wood screw family, also come in colour-coded packages. They have their very own graphic profile that makes them easy to distinguish from other screws on the shelf.
Easier for both customers and staff!
What do you need to know?
You can find all you need to know on the label
The label only has the most important information about the screw, which makes it simple and easy to read.
In addition to the most obvious information, such as diameter, length, surface treatment and number of screws in the package, you will also find information about which bits to use. You will find batch and item numbers, but perhaps best of all, you will also find a QR code.
This allows you to learn all the information about each screw directly on your smartphone. For example, you can see the material the screw is made of and its intended application, the other screw sizes we stock, product data sheets, performance declaration, safety data sheet, construction product declaration, type approval etc. In some cases, we also have instructional videos demonstrating application and important considerations when using the product. Great, right?
Recycled plastic package
For our external product range
We have developed a plastic package for some of the items in our external product range. The packaging is weatherproof and designed to counteract the condensation that can accumulate in plastic packages. Small holes in the base allow air to circulate and dry out any liquid. The transparent lid makes it easy to see what screw the package contains.
To reduce the environmental impact of the packaging, it is made from 70% recycled plastic. The plastic packaging is also space-optimised, with a high degree of filling to minimise air in the package.
Like Miniwell, one useful feature of these packages is that they are delivered flat to our warehouse and expanded in the packing machine. This means that we avoid paying to transport air on our roads.
Packaging for professionals
Improved opening function for our large boxes.
Our practical large box with a convenient carrying handle has a new design that makes it easier to open. This package has also been optimised in size and is easier to carry, if that’s possible!
When inserting a large number of screws.
We also have a plastic tub which is handy when you need to insert a lot of screws, such as with decking. In our tub you will find, besides decking screws, some items including external Jetting Screws, farmer screws, angle bracket screws and drywall screws.
The screw packages are packed and shipped from VSB in what we call mother boxes, which protect the cartons during transport. Our Jetting Screw range has its own mother box that differs from other screws. It makes life easy when distinguishing between the different screws when unpacking. The mother boxes are marked with a specific label containing a unique EAN code, and the total amount of screws in each mother box.
