RhinoCorebox. // Eco-friendly, strong and sustainable.

You asked for it, we listened. RhinoCorebox is now available in a single channel, 1.5m length size.

Available in both single 1.5m channel and double 1m channel variations, RhinoCorebox is a plastic core transport and storage box made from 100% recycled materials. It is unequivocally the future of soil and rock core storage and is by far the best corebox on the market today.

How RhinoCorebox can help you.

For as long as anyone can remember the ground investigation industry has been reliant on wooden coreboxes to service its need for transporting and storing samples obtained on site. Issues of manual handling, space during transportation and poor use life-cycle has led to an estimated 100,000 wooden coreboxes being cycled through in the UK alone, with an approximate replacement rate of around 20% per annum.

RhinoCorebox has been developed by industry experts to tackle these issues.

Nowadays the ability to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle represents an important measure of product sustainability. With their limited number of uses and limited recycling capacity, wooden coreboxes are not the sustainable solution. Made from recycled polypropylene, RhinoCorebox lasts over five times longer than wooden coreboxes, and once they have reached the end of their useful life, they can be recycled alongside general household plastics, or sold back into the recycling market for cash.

Zero waste

RhinoCoreboxes are made from 100% recycled polypropylene and remain 100% recyclable at the end of their lifecycle. Zero waste. Nothing to landfill.

700% cheaper per use

On average, wooden coreboxes get used a maximum of four times before being binned and/or replaced. That’s around £4 per use. RhinoCoreboxes can be used upwards of 50 (yes, FIFTY) times. That’s a miserly £0.50 per use for the 1m boxes. Bargain.

Easy to clean

Contaminants from samples soak into wood when they get wet. That means you can’t use that box again due to cross-contamination issues. That’s not a problem for plastic RhinoCoreboxes. Just jet-wash them down and they’re ready to go again. Reuse.

Safer to use

Gone are the days of flimsy, painful string handles tearing hands apart. RhinoCoreboxes are ergonomically designed to make sure they’re comfortable to carry. They are lighter than their wooden counterparts, so they reduce your manual handling risk, and they even interlock when stacking for increased stability. Safe.

Core security

Samples are the name of the game in ground investigation. Wooden boxes are not designed to house samples in a secure, supported manner. It’s literally a round core in a square box. Not good. RhinoCoreboxes are different. They cradle your core and ensure it doesn’t get damaged in transit. Take better care of your core.

Storage and transport

In comparison to clunky, flimsy wooden boxes, empty RhinoCoreboxes save you 300% on transport costs and up to 300% in empty storage costs. That means more space in your stores for equipment and gear and massive cost reduction on getting boxes to site. Spacious savings.

Eco-friendly, durable, strong, sustainable and cost-effective.
