To the layman, a crate is a crate; a wooden box which helps protect something. However, a crate is in actual fact, a very sophisticated barrier. It protects the item inside from a variety of elements that can damage it. Those elements include shock, humidity, vibration, abrasion and temperature.

There are many different types of crate, used for different objects and different modes of transport:

. Castrum Surround - A light weight, wooden framed crate, with cardboard sides offers protection for robust items of a lightweight nature.

. Castrum Skeleton - An all-wooden framed, non-closed crate, which offers protection for larger objects that are not susceptible to atmospheric or climatic perils.

. Castrum Freight - A fully enclosed wooden crate, with runners for ease of manipulation. As the name suggests, mainly used for International transportation, after the item has been properly packed. Adjustments are made for transportation via airfreight or courier express movements due to the increased handling involved in these transportation methods

. Castrum Museum - A complex crate, involving the use of 'Z' joints, gaskets and coating of the wood to absolutely ensure that no outside elements can enter the crate. Many other techniques are used in this crate to ensure the integrity of the item inside.

Castrum Global also offers a cost effective, ecologically friendly alternative to wooden crates - The Castrum Planet.
