The secret of ExpandOS™ performance – our patented design.

ExpandOS™ paper pyramids are specifically designed to lock together using all three sides, all six corners and all thirty-eight fingers. The network of circular holes on each ExpandOS™ also serve to minimize added package weight and enable the paper pyramids to further interlock.

When the ExpandOS™ paper pyramids are added to the shipping box, they immediately lock together to stabilize the product, providing blocking and bracing to help the product maintain its position in the box.

The ExpandOS™ pieces will adjust, realign and reorganize themselves with their neighbors in a layer around the product(s) during transit to provide a reliable, safe haven that diverts unwelcome energy away from the product. The pieces work together to suspend the product, absorb shock and allow minimal movement during shipping.

ExpandOS™ paper is shipped to you on pallets in flat sheet form. The Expander machine is then used to produce ExpandOS™ when and where you need it. We also sell ExpandOS™ in a ready to use form – see our webstore for details.
