Abstract: Reinforced corrugated cartons on the order of 35 to 50 inches in height and somewhat greater in length and width are provided with an inside tubular rectangular liner and a bottom pad fitted down inside the liner and adhesively secured to the inside bottom flaps of the carton. Disposed entirely peripherally around the carton sidewalls or the tubular liner and extending upward for a distance from substantially the bottom thereof on the outside is a belt of non-woven backing material with yarns laminated thereon and extending peripherally laterally completely therearound. The yarns may be of any material which exhibits minimal elongation under tension.
Abstract: A load-retaining barrier construction formed exclusively of high tensile strength plastic sheet material having a limited stretch capability precut to length sufficient to provide the same with portions which are fixedly secured in position at opposite sides of a load confining space and with freely extending end portions which are adhesively secured together in overlapped relation, said overlapped part of the barrier being wrapped or turned upon itself about an axis extending across the width of the barrier material in the region of said overlap through a number of turns sufficient to tension the barrier to the degree desired. This tensioning is effected by a turning tool applied to the overlapped part of the barrier along said axis.
