II.3. A box with a lid, a large flat glass, matches and a commercial brochure – technical desc

The blank of the flaps is app. twice bigger than the previously produce standard stiff cigarette boxes and has been produced of the same paper type. 

The technical drawings disclose actual dimensions. The model samples have been based on these.

The innovative elements in the construction of the box, which are incorporated in the folding system of the out shell, are as follows:

- The box incorporates all features as presented in previously described models and


- the cut-out for a PCV glass

a large cut for a PCV glass is designed to accommodate app. 4mm paper ridge away from the cut’s edge. It is necessary to maintain rounded paper edges, which folded towards the inside of the box, merge with the side walls. Other reasons are as follows: the necessity to insert the glass and by doing so to achieve appropriate durability of the hinged lid.  
The sample models disclose maximum acceptable width and height of the cut and the glass. It is possible, that in mass production said dimensions will decrease for easier assemblage and glue-bonding. The width and the height of the cut is also defined by the flaps’ extrusion while it makes allowances for appropriate view into the additional storage space and proper footing on the ledge.  The cutting from underneath is justified for reasons of retaining a coherent image of the box as well as the possibility of inserting a PCV glass from the upward direction. 

- a large PCV glass

Almost a double-sized transparent PCV glass, between 0,20 mm to 0,25 mm thick, is durable enough to be inserted in the hinged lid. The dimensions of the blank are increased by app. 3 to 4 mm on each side of the glass for insertion or welding purposes.  There is also a possibility of using a welding foil or higher erasebility-proof materials such as: polyester or others with improved durability.   

- a commercial brochure

apart from commercial brochure visibility enhancement, the parameters and features are as described above in 1a and 1b.  

- matches

apart from matches visibility enhancement, the parameters and features are as described above in 2.  

- a gadget

apart from gadget visibility enhancement, the parameters and features are as described above in 2.
