EN 14053:2003 (E)3ForewordThis document (EN 14053:2003) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN /TC 261 "Packaging", thesecretariat of which is held by AFNOR.This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text orby endorsement, at the latest by December 2003, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latestby December 2003.The standard is based on the already existing FEFCO-ASSCO International Fibreboard Case Code.This code was originally developed and issued by the organizations FEFCO and ASSCO as a standardized systemto substitute long and complicated verbal descriptions of fibreboard case and packaging constructions by simplesymbols internationally understood by all, regardless of language and other differences.An agreement has been made with the two organizations to use this market-related FEFCO-ASSCO code as areference document for this European Standard.Annexes A and B of this European Standard are informative.According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the followingcountries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland,France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal,Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.SIST EN 14053:2003

EN 14053:2003 (E)4IntroductionEfficient packaging is of great importance for the distribution and the protection of goods. Insufficient orinappropriate packaging can lead to damage or wastage of the contents of the pack.The purpose of this European Standard is to describe construction elements for corrugated and solid fibreboardpackagings by a simple code. Type, style and construction of a case or other packaging is described by a fourfigure code. It may be followed by extra digits, which will describe a manufacture’s variation to a standard design.These extra digits may be specific to each manufacturer.SIST EN 14053:2003

EN 14053:2003 (E)51 ScopeThis European Standard describes basic types and constructions of corrugated or solid fibreboard packagings.Folding cartons are not covered by this European Standard.2 Normative referencesNot applicable.3 DimensionsNOTE 1Dimensions of fibreboard may vary with variation in moisture content of the material. Accurate measurements ofdimensions should therefore be performed under standard climatic conditions (Condition 50 % r.h./23 °C of EN ISO 2233).NOTE 2The external dimensions should be taken into consideration when using pallets or containers for distribution.NOTE 3The difference between the external and internal dimensions of the case depends on the thickness of the boardand the number of plies present.3.1 Case dimensionsUnless otherwise specified, the dimensions of the erected assembled case are expressed as internal dimensionsin mm, and in the following order: L

The dimensions L, B and H are specified in each description of thecase construction but refer normally to:L (Length) = the longer dimension at the openingB (Breadth) = the shorter dimension at the openingH (Height) = the dimension from the top of the opening to the baseNOTEDimensions should be measured on the flat blank from the centre of the creases taking into account the thicknessof the material as appropriate.3.2 Telescope type casesFor telescope-type cases the height (h) of the upper part (lid) should be given as a fourth measurement after anoblique stroke, e.g.355

205
120/40 mm(L)
(B)

(H)/ (h)3.3 Cases with overlapping outer flapsFor cases with overlapping outer flaps the length of the overlap (o) should be given as a fourth measurement,e.g.355

205
120/40 mm(L)
(B)

(H)/ (o)3.4 Sheet dimensionsNOTEUnless otherwise specified, the dimensions of a corrugated board sheet are expressed in mm.3.4.1 Corrugated board sheet1st dimension

2nd dimension = (CD
MD) = (across the machine direction)
(along the machine direction).SIST EN 14053:2003

EN 14053:2003 (E)61st dimension = along the glue lines which is parallel to the flutes (CD) 2nd dimension = across the glue lineswhich is perpendicular to the flutes (MD).3.4.2 Solid board sheet1st dimension

2nd dimension = (CD
MD)1st dimension = CD (cross

direction)2nd dimension = MD (machine direction).3.5 Material thickness3.5.1 GeneralThe thickness of a fibreboard material is needed for calculations of the package dimensions.Corrugated board and solid fibreboard are two types of fibreboard material.3.5.2 Corrugated boardFor corrugated board the material thickness is mainly determined by construction factors, i.e. single wall or multi-wall types and by the flute profile(s) used.

The thickness of the paper components has only a limited influenceon the thickness of the board.

For corrugated board there are comparatively homogeneous types ofconstructions referred to as “flute profiles” or “flute types”.3.5.3 Solid fibreboardSolid fibreboard is available in many thicknesses.

The strength properties for the same thickness can show widedifferences due to many circumstances in the production, e.g. the pulp and fibre raw material used, theproduction machine and production methods.

The grades are often referred to by basis weight and type of fibrematerial used.

The board producer can give relevant strength properties related to their particular material.4 Basic type groups4.1 GeneralThe design of corrugated and solid fibreboard cases can be as variable as the types of articles to be packed butthere are certain recognized basic type groups.

The purpose of this section is to describe a code which is usedto identify the design of corrugated and solid fibreboard cases in order to simplify communication betweenmanufacturers, specifiers, users and other parties involved.4.2 Code compositionThe code consists of four figures.

The two first figures in the code are related to the basic type groups presentedbelow and the second two figures are related to the actual version of the basic types. (See also clause 5)4.3 Basic type groupsSee also clause 8.4.3.1 Commercial rolls and sheets (01)4.3.2 Slotted-type cases (02)Consist basically, of one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers´ joint and top and bottom flaps.They are shipped flat, ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided.SIST EN 14053:2003
