Allen Field is the One-Stop Shop for all POP Display Components

Corrugated point-of-purchase (POP) displays may be the most effective way to make your product stand out in traditional stores. They are compact, easily assembled, and recyclable. To differentiate your product from the droves of consumables on the shelf, you want a POP display that is eye catching, economical, and sustainable! Allen Field offers the most comprehensive collection of POP display accessories!

Allen Field’s Trundler© system turns any stationary POP display into a mobile and re-usable display. The system is composed of the Trundler© wheel  and foot. The wheel enables the display to move easily throughout a store and the foot keeps your display in its desired location. Additionally, utilizing this system takes your display off the floor and eliminates wear and tear, appreciably extending the life of your display.

Not all POP displays are created equal. Nothing turns off consumers more than a messy display. Allen Field’s Rotary Display Arm will neatly display your products, making the shopping experience simple and clear for consumers. The Rotary Display Arm comes in two lengths, 8 and 10-inches, to ensure it fits your exact display specifications. Those lengths don’t work for you? Allen Field would be happy to customize the Display Arm.

Lastly, you need a dependable hook to hang your merchandise on the Display Arm! Allen Field offers a wide range of display hooks and hangers, which hold anything from socks, scarves, small consumer electronics, and much more! Be sure to check out the Display-It hook or our new Slide On Header Hook.

For over 70 years, Allen Field has been helping customers hang their merchandise with innovative and functional POP display aids. Our POP accessories are made of only the highest quality plastics!

Integra Series: the Synthesis of Handle and Washer Plate

Washer plates compliment most plastic handles by offering additional support to the handle and protecting securing the specified weight held by the carrier. However, using a support plate with your handle can add an extra step and possibly add to assembly costs. What if a handle came with an attached support plate and required only one step to install? To deliver just this, Allen Field developed the Integra series, a molded two-in-one handle-washer plate integration.

The Integra IS handle can be quickly installed through your die-cuts on the box and then secured by sliding the handle into the attached support plate. Its wide carrying surface gives you excellent comfort and holding security for heavy packages up to 80 lbs.

The Integra IS has been well-received by the market, especially due to its quality and decreased installation time. To accommodate more customers and project requirements, we took the same design and created a small-scale version, the Integra V handle. With a 45 lb. carrying capacity, the newer handle has a compact design that is more economical than the original carrying piece, while maintaining its reliability and appeal for a wide range of applications.

At Allen Field, we believe that many packaging products should be constant improved upon, our modification to product design is aimed at reducing the cost and time of manufacturing for our customers and enabling them to invest in additional projects and designs. For custom inquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Packaging is Vital in Communicating Product Value

It is more important than ever that your brand effectively sets your product apart from the rest! Every product is vying for shelf-space, be it actual space in a store or virtual in e-commerce. What does your packaging say about your brand? Does your packaging communicate the value of the product on the inside? Do you accommodate the reality of supply chain logistics that are involved in getting your product into the stores and to consumers?

It is a main tenant in business to keep unit costs downs and maximize profits. But customers notice when you cut corners and it is certainly not a vote of confidence to buy a high-end luxury item (like the newest TV or computer) and it be in a box that is difficult to carry or is damaged. A premium product should look and feel exceptional!

Here at the Allen Field Company, we believe our plastic packaging components are not mere add-ons nor simply “Cost of Goods Sold”. It is worth spending time and money to ensure your product arrives to the retail location in pristine shelf-ready condition and is easy for the consumer to transport out of the store. Carefully crafted and thought out packaging takes your product to the next level. Be sure not to overlook:

  • Transport
  • Storage
  • Retail Display Environments

The best packaging not only protects the product inside, but also conveys its value. From consumer electronics to home furnishing and décor, packaging is a key opportunity to communicate value and secure market positioning.

PP800 2-PART ELLIPSE CLEAN LIFT

Our latest edition of the Plastic Clean Lift, will be available soon!

Allen Field takes on custom projects of all scopes and sizes. We often go through multiple rounds of prototyping in pursuit of perfection. One such example is the PP800 Hand Hole Protector.

 

Allen Field’s Protective Hand Holes are designed to be inserted into die-cuts on the sides of boxes, to enable carrying ease and support.  In addition to reinforcing the die-cuts in corrugated boxes, an attached plastic cover prevents dust & debris from entering the box during shipping. Our original Corrugated Clean Lift had a corrugated base piece and attached to the box with adhesive glue. While this designs sufficed for many applications, it required adhesive and did not work with all types of boxes. The second generation, the Two-Part Ellipse Clean Lift, solved this problem with two featured plastic ellipse clips that could connect and allow for attachment without adhesive.

 

Recently we optimized the second edition.  This new design provides a more secure attachment without any glued parts while still adding reinforcement to the die-cuts, where the carrier lifts the box. This extra reinforcement to the hand holes helps prevent damage to the box and protects the carrier’s hands.

 

The PP800 clips will be especially useful for shipping electronics, medical devices and the alike, as the plastic dust covers keep all external particles from getting inside the box and potentially damaging the contained product. As the name “Clean Lift” suggests, this hand hole protector keeps your products pristine and protected during transportation. The new hand hole protector will be available for all Allen Field customers soon. To learn more about our latest designs and custom projects, please contact us today.
