The Balearm container is so called due to the arm located at each end that enables the boxes to be stacked on top of each other when full protecting the products inside from being damaged by the boxes above. When the balearm is folded back the boxes nest inside each other to minimise the space required to store and transport them when they are empty.

The balearm container was designed to get the best of the stacking boxes and the nesting boxes in one simple box. With the Balearm folded away these boxes have the highest nesting ratio of any nesting boxes on the market. This means that when empty they take up the minimum amount of space making storage and transportation costs as low as possible. When the Balearm is located for stacking these boxes are able to be stacked safely on top of each other protecting the goods inside from damage and maximizing the available height for storing and transporting product.
