In addition to all of the amazing things our team does throughout each and every stage of any project, in the end, we want to make sure that your music is packed safe and sound and can handle anything that the shipping services throw our way (sometimes literally). 

With that being said, we use some extremely strong and sturdy vinyl record boxes. Check out the label in the image with all of the numbers. 

Bursting Test - 275 lbs per square inch (200 lbs is the standard)
Minimum Combined Weight of Facings - 138 lbs per 1000 sq ft
Gross Weight - 95 lbs

What does all of that mean?
Well, the Bursting-Test is the force of pounds per square inch required to rupture or burst the side of a corrugated box. 

This method indicates the box's ability to withstand external or internal forces, and how the box will contain its contents during rough handling. For example, a box with a burst-strength of 275 lbs.-per-square-inch, indicates that the corrugated paper used to make the box can withstand 275 lbs. of pressure-per-square-inch.- The Burst Test = containment and handling ability of a box.

Minimum Combined Weight of Facings - It's the total combined weight of the facing of the box of the large uncut sheet of corrugated material the box in question is made from. Again, measured in pounds per thousand square feet. That's a lot of strength there!

Again, here at 2424, we do everything we can to make sure your order is protected when it leaves our facility.
