Its striking design tells you right away this is something different and better.

But there is more to our boxes than just a great color scheme.

Each box features a rugged 275-pound double-wall design that protects the lamps much, much more than the typical single-wall boxes used by others.

It’s design was even developed with the help of UPS, and they know what it takes to build a strong package for today’s demanding shipping services.

Plus, our lamps are individually sleeved, to provide maximum protection.
In addition, 48-pack 4′ boxes and all 8′ boxes add heavy-duty corner guards and Styrofoam end inserts that provide yet another layer of protection for our lamps.
These measures insure that you receive lamps that will be trouble-free for many years.
