Drop-front clamshell box with a fixed back wall


The IIc box is a very tight construction, which helps protect the object inside it against dust. It has a drop-front wall - a solution which makes it possible to take objects out in a gentle and safe manner. The hinge of the box requires careful handling - it could get torn loose when opened too abruptly and without care. The minimum recommended height (spine width) for this box is 50 mm.

Like all clamshell constructions, this one is also designed for horizontal storage. However, it is rigid enough to store object of varying sizes in a stack, which facilitates better and more efficient use of storage space. The required condition is precise adjustment of box size to the dimensions of an object to be stored so that placing a smaller box on a bigger one does not result in collapsing of the lower box lid.  

 Our clamshell boxes have cutouts for fingers so that they can be opened easily.

Who is Omni-Box for?

The Omni-Box storage products are mainly designed for those of our Clients who need:

  • one, a few or a few dozen units of storage products in a special, non-standard format;
  • to store a collection of books in such a manner that each volume is kept in a separate box;
  • storage products of non-standard construction.
How does it work?

First, our experienced designers make a computer design of a box or folder. After that, the product undergoes cutting and creasing by means of a digital plotter.

How should I measure an object to be stored?

Do you feel discouraged when you think of how much work it takes to take measurements of all the books to be stored in individual boxes? There is no need! For that purpose we can lend you, free of charge, the Bookmeter. With this device, which resembles an aluminium drawer, you can measure a book’s spine width, its width and height in just a few steps. It provides a precise measurement, and the data is wirelessly sent to a table on your computer. This helps you prevent making a mistake, which can happen when taking measurements manually. All you need to do is provide a reference number of each volume and… it’s done! 

This file is then used to produce a custom-made storage product for each volume.
