Revision of D6804-19 Standard Guide for Hand Hole Design in Corrugated Boxes


Standard D6804 is being reviewed as part of the normal 5 year review process. Minor changes to Sections 4.3.2 will be made which clarify why pulling by hand holes is not recommended. Two new subsections, 5.1.5 and 5.1.6 will be added to discuss the effect of box weight on board (flute construction) for boxes with hand holes and the effect of hand holes on ECT and mullen boxes.
