Child Resistant Packaging

Gwalia’s closure division Dragon Plastics has been a major contender in this highly specialized sector of the closure market for many years. In 1995 the company was a founder member of the Child-Safe Packaging Group and the group makes both ‘push and turn’ and ‘squeeze and turn’ closure systems.

Numerous successes have been achieved including Savalot, then the lightest single piece closure for a child resistant pack. Also 2010 saw the introduction of our standard range of CR containers for tablets. We believe that this range continues as the lightest such pack in the market.

There is no such thing as a ‘child resistant closure’ the standards, ISO 8317:2003 and, in the USA 16CFR1700.20, cover ‘child resistant packs’. This means that closures need to be tested in conjunction with the container/s for which they will be specified. As CSPG founder members Gwalia can provide expertise in this area that is second to none; and we can show customers the various options available, whether CR packaging is being specified in response to regulations or because of good corporate responsibility considerations.
