METAL EDGE BOXES

3 Inch Drop Front Boxes

  • Application

    Drop Front Boxes are perfect for the storage of prints, photos, art and similar mounted or unmounted documents that are best stored flat. This style of box is also well-suited for digital prints, musical scores, pamphlets, letters, newspapers and other flat collectibles.

  • Features

    Metal-edged drop front boxes consist of a removable top and a bottom with a hinged ’’drop front’’ panel on one of the long sides. This feature ’’opens’’ the bottom section so the contents can be inserted, removed or examined safely, without bending or flexing the contents in any way. The risk of ’’dog-earing’’ your materials is also greatly minimized.

    Our boxes are manufactured from heavyweight ArchivalGrade™ boxboard. Metal edge clamps are anti-corrosion treated with a black polyester coating with a wax-free polyester finish on the blind side. These clamps provide both rigidity and high stacking strength.
