CHILD RESISTANT
FOLDING BOX

Medicines, detergents, laundry and dish washer capsules, toxic preparations, cannabis and marijuana based substances, are a real danger for a child.
A moment of distraction is enough for facing the worst-case scenario.

Child Resistant IGB packaging was born to prevent this danger

The greatest contribution to children’s safety is prevention.

Potentially dangerous substances should never be available to minors:
  • detergents, laundry capsules, dishwasher capsules
  • chemicals, and toxic preparations
  • some cosmetics, mouthwashes
  • lawn and garden products
  • medicines, over-the-counter medications, herbal medicine, dietary supplements
  • cannabis and marijuana-based substances
  • nicotine-based substances

Child Resistant packaging makes a valuable contribution since it can withstand "attacks" of children up to 52 month old (which represents the highest-risk age).

The scenario

The scenario offered by the data collected by the main associations monitoring poisonings is tragic. It is an alarming picture in terms of numbers but even more for what concerns the age groups involved.

National Capital Poison reports:

Our packaging has been projected and developed according to the regulations of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act which contains a Child-Resistant and Senior-Friendly Packaging Guide.

It is important to highlight that the Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that: “THE CPSC DOES NOT APPROVE, CERTIFY, OR ENDORSE ANY SPECIFIC CRP (Child Resistant Packaging)”.

Consumer Product Safety Commission has also published a complete list of substances requiring special packaging which is also available on Wikipedia

How does it work?

Child Resistant packaging is designed to prevent contact between children and the contents of the package.
If the use of the system is simple and intuitive for an adult, it looks like a real conundrum in the eyes of a child.

Other Child Resistant solutions can be studied specifically for specific needs:
- specific packaging shapes and sizes
- specific closure mechanisms

IGB Child Resistant packaging can be fully customized.
