Are there any standards for crush of strapping and compression from overhang
We have been asked if there are any standards covering measurement of the degree of crushing of a carton from strapping and differential compression in a stacking situation where the carton hangs our over the carton below
Any help greatly appreciated
A commonly used factor for strength loss due to overhang is 30%.
If you get compression due to strapping force that is sufficient to cause perpendicular creasing of the container sidewall, expect another 25-30% reduction.
