Cardboard Tubes and Cores

25/05/2017 by in category Products tagged as , , , , , , with 2 and 0

There are many different types  of cardboard tubes and cores available these days. In our everyday lives, we often use many products which are contained by a core or tube within the centre.

Whether we need to transport heavy-duty goods, such as carpets and vinyl flooring, or wrapping up a birthday present, using strips of sellotape, these tubes and cores make our lives much more manageable and less stressful too.

Imagine trying to unravel sticky tape which has just been folded over instead of wrapped around a cardboard tube. How about attempting to post an important certificate for work or poster of your child’s favourite football team / pop star, in a thin envelope, instead of a cardboard postal tube?

The manufacturing of cardboard tubes and cores has become a vital necessity for many different types of businesses who rely on these products to transport their goods safely and securely. They are also recyclable and cost-effective solutions with a variety of bespoke shapes, styles and sizes available to suit individual needs.

    I’m looking for tubes approx 3.2m in length as supports for muslin photography backgrounds. The roller expander can accept cores between 50-70mm. Is this something you can offer? I currently need 3 tubes.
