Detectable Boxes and Crates

Launched in 2015 the BST DetectaBox® range was the world’s first detectable stackable box solution, designed to address the problem of box fragments contaminating food products. This problem can occur whenever a food storage or handing box is subject to more wear and tear than usual and is at risk of breaking or chipping.

The DetectaBox® is manufactured using xdetect®, BST’s flagship and industry renowned metal detectable and x-ray visible plastic. This plastic is designed entirely with food safety in mind. As well as being highly detectable it is also strong, hardwearing, brightly coloured, chemical resistant, shatter resistant, FDA approved, and EU complaint.

The first in the DetectaBox® range was a standard EURO size of 600x400x220, but we can also manufacture the same box in a variety of heights, as well as other standard euro boxes and plastic pallets. There’s now no reason why boxes should cause foreign body contamination in the food industry.
