Fifty-five years of container construction experience is integral in developing the SchneiderBox. The result is a box with intelligent solutions that is unique on the market, taking into account resource-saving use of the materials used.
Spring steel bars made of stainless steel enable a form-fitting interlocking of the walls
The Schneider bars are located on the inside in the profiles of the front and rear wall
The closure can be opened by a smooth pressure mechanism
The positive interlocking causes an even distribution of force on all 4 walls
The spring steel bolts on the inside are protected from impacts and corrosion, which ensures long-term functionality
Compared to the EPAL wire mesh box, the Schneider bars are much smoother and more user-friendly. While the latches of the EPAL wire mesh box are pulled to the side and constantly jam, the lock of the SchneiderBox can be opened by a smooth-running pressure mechanism
The Schneider feet are built with thicker walls and additional weld seams compared to the EPAL mesh box
Integrated mounting options in the Schneider feet enable use in an automated system
In the case of EPAL mesh boxes, around 50% of the reasons for repairs can be traced back to defects in the feet. The reinforcement in the Schneider feet means a longer service life for the SchneiderBox, which means that repair or replacement costs are noticeably reduced.
The SchneiderBox fits perfectly into your production process, which is optimized by robots and conveyor belts, thanks to the integrated mounting points.
Lightweight construction of the Schneider floor frame through the use of special profiles made from high-quality materials (steel grades)
Use of IPPC treated wood
Two undercarriage plates also stiffen the floor frame
Resource-saving use of materials with the same load capacity (1,500 kg) as the EPAL mesh box
Can be used for worldwide logistics, as the use of IPPC treated wood means that international import regulations are implemented
The additional stiffening of the floor frame with two underlay plates increases the SchneiderBox service life and reduces their repair costs compared to the EPAL mesh box. Damage to the sub-floor causes approx. 25% of repairs to the EPAL mesh box.
1) Compared to the transport of empty EPAL wire mesh boxes 2) The stated consumption and emission values relate to an increase in the CO² emissions per driven truck km as defined by the Federal Environment Agency in 2019. A megatrailer loaded with 96 empty EPAL wire mesh boxes weighs an approximate total 22 t. and releases 613 grams of CO² emissions per driven kilometer. Four trips are required to transport 384 empty EPAL box pallets, which quadruples the CO² emissions per km to 2,452 grams. In comparison, only one trip is necessary to transport 384 empty SchneiderBoxes. The mega-trailer loaded with 384 SchneiderBoxes weighs an approx. 40 t. and releases 852 grams of CO² emissions per driven kilometer. Transporting 384 empty SchneiderBoxes releases 65% less CO² emissions compared to transporting 384 empty EPAL wire mesh boxes. 3) SchneiderBoxes can be stacked 24 high when folded, whereas EPAL wire mesh boxes can only be stacked a maximum 6 high. The SchneiderBox and the EPAL wire mesh box have identical external dimensions: 1,240 mm x 835 mm x 970 mm, so 75% more SchneiderBoxes than EPAL wire mesh boxes can be stored in the same area
