Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0855344A2] The container blank has a number of parallel fold lines along the mantle surface of a polygonal cross-section container sidewall. It also has a corresponding cross-section base (2) with a fold line (4) across its centre defining a symmetry axis. A fixing flap (51) extends along the edge of each side of the base, with the flaps folded inwards over the base when the blank is folded flat. The side edges of the adjacent flaps are formed to overlap when folded inwards and hold the flaps in the folded position.
