Mini Disposable Safety Box Cutter

In any environment where high volumes of cardboard boxes, plastic wrapping, shrink wrap and similar packaging are encountered, a safe, simple and efficient box cutting solution is a vital tool for business efficiency. The Mini Disposable Safety Box Cutter is ideal for warehouse work, retail and even home use. Featuring an obscured blade, the Mini Box Cutter is designed to help users implement a streamlined and injury-free package opening process.

Innovative Design

The Mini Disposable Safety Box Cutter is optimised for both speed and safety. Its cutting blade is sheltered by a 'spike' that is ideal for piercing shrink wrap or cling film. The Mini Box Cutter also features indented finger/thumb grips which allow it to be pulled towards or pushed away from the user for a smooth yet effective cutting motion.

The box cutter is functional on both sides: as well as its main obscured blade, the Box Cutter features a handy tape splitter on its reverse side – perfect for opening tape-sealed cartons or scoring corrugated cardboard to simplify folding and tearing.

How to Use the Mini Disposable Safety Box Cutter

  • The Mini Safety Cutter has indented finger/thumb grips, so it can be pulled towards you or pushed away when cutting
  • Use the 'spike' to pierce shrink wrap or cling film when cutting
  • Where cardboard boxes are sealed with tape, use the tape splitter to cut through the tape
  • Use the tape splitter to score thick cardboard or corrugated card so that it can be folded or torn easily along the scored line
  • When cutting card, always begin your cut at an edge
  • When cutting shrink wrap from a roll pallet, always cut from either the top or bottom edge
  • When cutting plastic strapping, it is much easier to cut the strap at an angle, not straight across
  • Never exert excessive force when using the ‘Mini’ Safety Cutter
  • If the cutter jams whilst cutting, stop and start another cut
  • Always keep your free hand out of line of the cut
  • When the cutter becomes blunt, obtain a new cutter – the cutter is disposable, blades cannot be replaced

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

Quality mini box cutter. Decently sharp blade. Light weight and perfect to keep in my pocket, without the threat of cutting my fingers.
