Potato Boxes (Log & Vegetable Boxes)

Potato Boxes

C Jackson & Sons potato boxes have been designed with the aid of a CAD system and are manufactured to meet the requirements of British Standard BS7611:1992.

We use mainly imported (Scandinavian), slow grown, kiln dried timbers resulting in a potato box which is stronger, with a greater life expectancy, than boxes manufactured using home grown timbers only.

Our potato boxes include a standard stencil, usually on both of the long sides of the box, on the second board down from the top.

Our potato boxes are suitable for stacking to a maximum of 8 boxes high where store height permits.

Our range of designs includes ‘gapped’ boxes with standard 25mm gaps in the sides, ends and deck, nominally ‘close boarded’ boxes, ’tight boarded’ boxes and boxes with gap widths other than 25mm.

We offer a bespoke service to ensure we supply a potato box which exactly meets our customers’ requirements.

Vegetable Boxes

Our vegetable boxes meet the requirements of British Standard BS7611:1992 and include a standard stencil, usually on both of the long sides of the box, on the second board down from the top.

Our range of vegetable boxes may be used for storing crops such as potatoes, onions, carrots, parsnips, cabbages, swedes, leeks, Brussels sprouts, red beet, squash, etc.

We offer a bespoke service to ensure we supply a box which exactly meets our customers’ requirements.

Log Boxes & Log Stores

Our log boxes have been designed with the aid of a CAD system and, although there is no British Standard applicable to log boxes, we manufacture them to the same exacting standards that we apply to our potato and vegetable storage boxes.

Due to the wide gaps our log boxes are designed for use as a log drying / log storage box.

Our log boxes are fitted with a diagonally opposing wooden brace in each end of the box and a toothed connector plate behind the vertical posts fitted mid-way along the sides of the box.

The end braces have a long shallow taper on the underside to ensure there are no trapping points when logs are being tipped out of the box.
