Packaging Channel

Telling Industries announces PakChan, Packaging Channel, a new safety innovation. PakChan replaces the traditional wooden packaging channel typically used for shipping metal framing. It features roll formed and hemmed edges with wedged ends to prevent cuts and abrasions while loading. The benefits include improved shipping stability and tighter banding, which reduces shifting during transit. PakChan has improved strength and durability and won’t split or crack like wooden packaging channel can.


PakChan is patent pending and is currently being used in Telling’s Cambridge, Ohio, plant. It will soon be rolled out in the Osceola, Ark., and the Windsor, Conn., plants as well.
