Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2017197A1] A container for smoking articles comprises at least two hingedly connected packs, each for housing a separate bundle of smoking articles. The container comprises: a first pack having a first wall; a second pack having a first wall; and a separate connector (10). The separate connector comprises a series of panels and subpanels to form a container according to an embodiment of the invention, the first sub-panels (16) of the second (14) and fourth (26) panels and the first sub-panel (22) of the third panel (20) are folded through 180 degrees about the vertical fold lines connecting them to the edges of the first panel (12) so that they overlie the first panel (12). The second sub-panels (18) of the second (14) and fourth (26) panels and the second sub-panel (24) of the third panel (20) are folded through 180 degrees about the vertical fold lines connecting them to the first sub-panels (16) of the second (14) and fourth (26) panels and the first sub-panel (22) of the third panel (20), respectively, so that the second-sub panels (18,24,18) of the second (14), third (20) and fourth (26) panels overlie the corresponding first-sub panels (16,22,16) thereof. To complete formation of the container, the outer surface of the first panel (12) is affixed to the first wall of a first pack and the inner surfaces of the second-sub panels (18,24,18) of the second (14), third (20) and fourth (26) panels are affixed to the first wall of a second pack.
