Although a great amount of engineering went into the suggestions, there were little to no tables that indicated exactly when to use a particular style. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. As it’s been said ‘the US Government has zstm out of the standards business’ and no longer publishes or manages wood packaging standards.

This specification, however, does not cover wood-cleated panelboard box performance under all atmospheric, handling, shipping, and storage conditions. It is the responsibility of satm user of the standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Now with the help of only a few dedicated volunteers, ASTM is rewriting the government standards in a softer way.

It wasn’t until 20 s6251 30 years later the US military expanded their research resulting in the recently atsm standards such as the PPP-B and MIL-C that included extensive tables. The box shall be classified according to box type: Type 1; Type 2; and Type 3. Panels shall be fabricated by nailing, stapling, or gluing panelboard to cleats placed.

The new ASTM standards can be matched 1-to-1 with the old government ones and they even include the same tables. The appropriate distribution cycle, specified in Practice Dcan be used to develop comparative procedures and criteria. As a ‘Handbook’ rather than a ‘Standard’ the documents provided guidance in construction but didn’t indicate when a particular style box or crate should be used. Earlier documentation of the styles were written more as guidelines than rules and offered what are now the current styles as suggestions.
