We provide a large variety of industrial cardboard cores, with a choice of standard or high-performance fibreboard for maximum crush resistance.

Another branch of our vast array of postal tubes, our industrial cardboard tubes are primarily used as cardboard cores for use as reel centres for materials such as paper, film, textiles and rubber. The large cardboard tubes are also used as recut centres, reprographic cores, tape and label cores and general-purpose cores and tubes. Our industrial tubes can also be customised to your liking if you look at our printed cardboard tubes options.

Our manufacturing range allows us to produce over-size heavy duty cardboard tubes of long lengths up to 12 metres for special applications. Some of these are used as construction tubes, but we can also produce cardboard cores with wall thicknesses suitable for lightweight applications through to 12-tonne reels of steel, where the tube has to work as the reel centre as well as protect the inner layers of steel when it is being handled.
