The ideal packaging for wall plugs. The innovative Rondo packaging offers space for 200 special wall plugs from the company RANIT Austria (Rankweil). The wall-plug box can be quickly and easily opened and has a suspension device so the box can be mounted directly to the scaffolding or onto a ladder. So the material is always close at hand for craftsmen, and always has their back and workplace accidents (falling over for example) can easily be prevented. The packaging, that thinks for itself, convinced the international panel of experts.
