StandUpPouches.net, an online supplier of flexible retail packaging, has launched an innovative form of child-resistant (CR) packaging that is lightweight, highly protective and compliant with U.S. government regulations for childproof containers.
CR packaging is used by companies to mitigate the risk of poisoning in children via consuming hazardous items such as prescription and over-the-counter medications, pesticides and cleaning agents. This type of packaging is also required for emerging brands in the medical marijuana industry.
StandUpPouches.net’s CR bags feature a scientifically developed slide-locking mechanism with comprehensive opening instructions, making the packaging intuitive for adult consumers to open but difficult for children to get into. Users must push the small lever up, then pull the zipper out to access the items inside. To reclose, consumers push the zipper lock until they hear a “click” from the bottom lever.
Unlike rigid bottles with plastic caps that must be forcefully pushed or squeezed, the child-proof zip lock is small and lightweight, making the packaging less strenuous for seniors or adults with disabilities to open.
These CR bags are manufactured with thick, yet flexible layers of opaque, food-grade plastic that are “smell proof” and protect against the entry of outside elements like air, moisture, odor and bacteria that can compromise the quality of the product inside.
The CR packaging can be custom-made to fit any brand's individual needs. StandUpPouches.net offers a minimum run of 10,000 for custom-printed bags, which can be printed in up to 10 colors for brands to display their unique graphic designs, informative text and easily recognizable visual identities. Also offered are plain stock CR bags in all black or all white, 200/case. The tamper-evident bags come in size specs of 12.25 x 9 x 4 in. Additional sizes may be requested for stock options.
Flexible CR bags help build brands, particularly in newer markets like legal cannabis products and THC-infused edibles, while meeting consumer demand and keeping families safe.
