MARK B. ROYCE FGLDING CONTAINER WITH SLIP-1N VENEERS Filed Dec. 2, 1958, Ser. No. 777,760

1 Claim. (Cl. 229-14) The invention relates to the construction of shipping containers made of corrugated fibreboard and the like and having wood veneer panels forming slatted sides. This type of container is useful, for example, in shipping fruits and vegetables, the slatted wood veneer panels atfording strength and good ventilation, and the corrugated fibreboard container body being smooth and free of the rough projections found in ordinary wood crates.

My invention is concerned particularly with the provision of improved means for holding the wood veneer panels in the container body so that the panels need not be built into the box but can he slipped into place by the packer and still be held effectively and securely during loading of the container. Thus the container body, which is made of corrugated fibreboard, solid fibreboard,

etc., can be of the kind which folds flat for shipment by the boxmaker to the packer.

My improved shipping container comprises a'rectangular box of fibreboard (corrugated or solid) and the like having at least one of its side Walls cut open over a substantial area, a separate wood veneer panel fitted inside such wall and extending across the open area thereof, and special positioning means for the wood veneer panel. This positioning means comprises separate flanged inserts fitted inside the end walls of the box with the flanges engaging the ends of the wood veneer panel to hold the panel in position across the open area of the side wall during loading of the container. By making the inserts extend for substantially the full height of the container the Wood veneer panel is effectively held against tilting when the container is empty. Also, these inserts form a double wall for the end of the container, giving the end walls a strength more nearly comparable to that of the slatted side or sides. Then, after the container has been loaded, its contents press outwardly against the wood veneer panels and the end inserts and the insides of the flanges of the inserts, tightly wedging the ends of the panels between the flanges and the sides States ate a ice of the container and affording a particularly strong corner construction.

Fig. 1 is an exploded perspective view of a container constructed according to my invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the fully assembled container, ready for loading.

In its preferred form my container comprises a rectangular box 1 of corrugated fibreboard and the like having at least one of its side walls cut open over a substantial area as at 2, and a separate wood veneer panel 3 fitted inside such wall and extending across the open area thereof, and special positioning means for the wood veneer panel. The positioning means comprises separate inserts 4 having flanges 5 engaging the ends of the wood veneer panel to hold the latter in position across the open area of the side wall during loading of the container. The inserts 4 and their flanges 5 preferably extend for substantially the full height of the container, thus yielding the special advantages which have been described above.

The general construction of the fibreboard box may be varied as desired and any conventional form of container can be used, as for example, containers of the type known as a regular slotted container made of either corrugated or solid fibreboard, such containers being provided with the side wall openings as I have described. If desired, suitable handles 6 may be provided consisting of openings extending through both the end walls of the fibreboard box and the separate flanged inserts.

The terms and expressions which I have employed are used in a descriptive and not a limiting sense, and I have no intention of excluding such equivalents of the invention described as fall within the scope of the claim.

I claim.

A shipping container comprising a rectangular box of fibreboard and the like having at least one of its side walls cut open over a substantial area, a separate Wood veneer panel fitted inside such Wall and extending across the open area thereof, and positioning means for the wood veneer panel, said positioning means comprising separate flanged inserts fitted against the end walls of the box with the flanges projecting inwardly and engaging the ends of the wood veneer panel to hold the latter in position across the open area of the side wall during loading of the container.
