Flexico's bags receive child resistant closure certificate

Thursday, Aug 13, 2015

Packaging manufacturer Flexico Group has received CRC (child resistant closure) certificate for dangerous and toxic products packaging.

The firm has obtained the CRC certificate in the US and EU for its Sensogrip Kids bag range.

Flexico manager Karine Schaefer said: "There is no such thing as child-proof packaging, if an adult can gain access to a product then potentially a child can too. But by making a bag and closure that requires greater dexterity or a more complicated method of opening, we can certainly delay, and in many cases prevent, a child gaining access to products that are dangerous to them."

"No packaging will replace the benefits of dangerous products being stored where they cannot be accessed by children... but the Flexico Group's certified, child-resistant, Sensogrip bags will make it more difficult for those children who gain access to dangerous items, such as detergents, to ingest them."

Sensogrip is a multitrack closure that prevents external contamination and exposure to air. It is said to increase the shelf life of the product.

The closure is suitable for flexible packaging, and the material used is recyclable.
