Description

Nov. 16, 1965 F. A. CHIDSEY, JR

THREE-PIECE, ENCLOSED, WRAP-AROUND, CARRIER CARTON Filed Aug. 20, 1964 United States Patent 3,217,924 THREE-PIECE, ENCLOSED, WRAP-AROUND, CARRIER CARTON Francis A. Chidsey, Jr., Devon, Pa., assignor to Container Corporation of America, Chicago, Ill., a corporation of Delaware Filed Aug. 20, 1964, Ser. No. 390,895 2 Claims. (Cl. 220112) This invention relates to paperboard cartons for packaging cylindrical objects such as bottles, and more particularly to a completely enclosed, wrap-around, lightproof, carrier carton.

In many type wrap-around carrier cartons it is desirable to completely enclose the carton for several reasons.

One reason for completely enclosing a carton is to prevent light from entering the carton where there is a possibility of it causing the contents to be damaged. This is sometimes true in the case of malt beverages such as beer, and, therefore, it is highly desirable to package beer bottles in a completely light-proof enclosed carton.

Another advantage of completely enclosing the carton, especially the ends of the carton, is that additional space is provided for the manufacturer to imprint an advertising message of one type or another.

It is, therefore, a primary object of this invention to provide a sleeve-type paperboard wrap-around bottle carrier which is completely enclosed.

A more specific object of the invention is the provision, in a carton of the type described, of a three-piece carrier carton having a tubular body section with inturned flanges at the ends thereof and separate end wall panels secured to the end flanges of the body portion to completely enclose the cart-on structure.

These and other objects of the invention will be apparent from an examination of the following description and drawing, wherein:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of a carrier carton embodying features of the invention, with certain portions of the structure broken away;

FIGURE 2 is a plan view of the blank from which the carton of FIGURE 1 may be formed; and

FIGURE 3 is a perspective view of an end panel adapted to enclose the end of the structure illustrated in FIGURE 1.

It will be understood that, for purposes of clarity, certain elements have been intentionally omitted from certain views where they are believed to be illustrated to better advantage in other views.

Referring now to the drawing for a better understanding of the invention, it will be seen that the wrap-around carrier carton, indicated generally at C and illustrated in FIGURE 1 of the drawing, is adapted to enclose two parallel rows of cylindrical articles, such as bottles K having caps P at the upper ends thereof.

The main or body portion of the carton of FIGURE 1 may be formed from the blank B of paperboard illustrated in FIGURE 2; whereas, the ends of the carton comprise a pair of separate panels 20, shown in FIGURE 3 of the drawing.

As best seen in FIGURE 2 of the drawing the blank from which the body portion of the carton is formed includes a central panel which serves as the bottom wall of the carton and which has hingedly attached to its opposite side edges lower side wall panels 12. Hinged attached to the upper edges of lower side wall panels 12 3,217,924 Patented Nov. 16, 1965 are upper side wall panels 14 which, in turn, have hingedly attached to their upper edges a pair of overlapping inner and outer top wall panels 16 and 18, respectively. As best seen in FIGURE 1, when the carton is in the erected condition, with the lower and upper side wall panels folded upwardly to a vertical position along the sides of the containers or bottles K and with the inner and outer top panels 16 and 18 overlapped to form a common top wall, there is presented a tubular structure open at the ends;

Again referring to FIGURE 2, it will be seen that panels 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 are provided at opposite ends thereof with pairs of elongated, relatively narrow securing flanges 10a, 12a, 14a, 16a and 18a, respectively, which are folded inwardly at right angles to their respective panels, as shown in FIGURE 1, to present a plurality of co-planar, outwardly facing surfaces preferably extending continuously around the entire periphery of each end of the carton.

In order to completely close the ends of the carton and prevent light from entering the carton there is provided, at each end of the carton, a fiat end wall panel 20 having a cont-our to match the contour of the opening of the tubular structure. The end panel 20 may be secured at its peripheral, inwardly facing, marginal edge to the outwardly facing surfaces of the end wall securing flanges by means of adhesive, as indicated at 22. Also, if desired, some other form of connection such as stapling, or interlocking connection may be used to secure the end wall panels to the securing flanges.

Thus, it will be seen that by this simple construction there is provided a completely enclosed, light-proof, wrap around bottle carrier having end walls adhesively secured to opposite ends of the tubular main body of the carton structure.

In order to provide means for grasping or lifting the carton top wall panels 16 and 18 may be provided with aligned cuts 30 which form tabs 32 hinged to their respective panels on hinge lines 34 and adapted to be depressed into the carton when the carton is lifted to afford fingergrip holes 36.

Also, one of the upper side wall panels 14 may be provided with a series of cuts to provide a tear out feature 38, in a manner well known in the art. Also, the upper portions of side wall upper panels 14 may be provided with longitudinally spaced aligned openings 40 adapted to receive portions of the bottle caps P in order to prevent movement of the bottles within the carton and also to permit the body of the package to be snugly and securely wrapped around the bottles to form a tight package.

I claim:

1. A three-piece, sleeve-type, wrap-around paperboard carrier carton for enclosing at least one row of cylindrical containers such as glass bottles, comprising:

(a) a carton body including opposed top and bottom walls and opposed side walls hingedly interconnected along parallel hinge lines to form a tubular structure open at the ends; one of said walls including a pair of panels having portions secured to each other in overlapped relation;

(b) elongated, relatively narrow end wall securing flanges hingedly attached to opposite end edges of each of said carton body walls and folded to extend inwardly at right angles thereto;

(c) the flanges at each end of said carton presenting coplanar, outwardly facing surfaces;

(d) a pair of opposed end wall panels disposed on the outside of said flanges to close the opposite ends of said structure;

(e) said end wall panels each having a marginal portion, extending entirely around the periphery thereof, overlying and secured to the outwardly facing surfaces of related end wall securing flanges;

(f) said top Wall including handle means formed therein for lifting the carton.

2. A carrier carton according to claim 1, wherein the marginal portions of said end wall panels are adhesively secured to the related end Wall securing flanges.
