Project Description

Cardboard boxes – riAlto™ _Box

Grifal introduces the riAlto™ line, an original range of protective packaging with an elegant design developed for minimal environmental impact.

The name riAlto™ refers to the element that unites all the products in this line. They are made with cArtù®

a new type of corrugated cardboard created by technological innovation. The geometry of its waveform is that of the arch, used by architects  to build bridges throughout history.

The riAlto™ _Box is the solution for transporting bottles without having to use plastic or metal boxes. It’s lighter, more eco-friendly and more attractive. Is made of two parts: the base and the band of cArtù®

which has been half-cut to form the support for the floor. All you need to do is to fold over the half-cut to the inside and then place the floor on top. Your riAlto™ _Box is ready to use. No glue, no tape, no tools!

It can be made in any shape, cylindrical or rectangular, for example. The die-cuts for handles can be customized or eliminated. The entire box is made from cArtù®

with no glue or tape needed for assembly.

The riAlto™_Box:

  • Can be supplied disassembled for logistics savings;
  • Easy to assemble, the entire box is made from cArtù with no glue or tape needed for assembly;
  • Reusable;
  • Recyclable;
  • Lightweight;
  • Customizable.

cArtù is a new kind of corrugated cardboard with a revolutionary design. The innovative profile of its extra high waveform makes it super-light and shock absorbing. It can be used for protection and presentation because it’s simultaneously rigid along one axis, flexible along the other and thick enough to absorb major shocks.
cArtùis endowed with exceptional characteristics​:
Shock Absorbing: Thanks to its arch-like waveform and elevated wave height, cArtù has a high level of shock absorption so it can replace commonly used plastic materials with no loss of protection​.
Aesthetic appeal and Italian design: cArtù is attractive, simply elegant and emotionally expressive.​
Resistance: The structural strength along the flute axis is 30% greater than a product of the same form made with traditional corrugated cardboard.
Eco-friendly: A product made of cArtù uses about 40% less material than the same sized container would need if it were made with traditional corrugated cardboard.​

​Second life:  After its first use, cArtù can be repurposed for secondary uses.
