Edge and Angle Board Protection

Greif offers the best in edge protection. The right angle to protect your products.



Angle boards and edge protectors are packaging products used to protect products during transportation and storage. They are typically made from corrugated paper and designed to provide extra reinforcement and protection to the corners and edges of a package.

Angle boards, also known as corner boards, are triangular-shaped pieces designed for the corners of a package to protect it from damage during handling. They are often used to protect products with sharp corners or prone to damage, such as glass or metal products.

Edge protectors, also known as edge guards, are long, rectangular-shaped pieces placed along a package’s edges to protect it from damage during handling. They often protect products prone to edge damage, such as plywood or paneling.



Made from 100% recycled paperboard. Can be specially sized, perfed, made to order and comes in many different options such as Kraftback or white.

Made with 100% Recycled Paperboard

Let’s say some recycled linerboard becomes corrugated sheets for use in cardboard boxes. When all these boxes have fulfilled their original purpose, the cycle begins again with collecting recovered Old Corrugated Container (OCC). The OCC gets pulped again, but this time, the OCC gets rolled into paper for use in edge and angle board.

Or it could work the other way, too. Either way, this completes the Greif circular paperboard economy – generation, collection, transportation, recycling, and manufacturing. Rinse and repeat.

Following this cycle enables us to protect our future and be recognized as a global sustainability leader.
