Multi-Material Engineering | Packaging High Value Art

Packaging High Value Art

Relocating fine art can present some complex challenges and risks. Many pieces of art are one-of-a-kind, which makes every relocation project unique. This calls for a specialised packaging solution, using a combination of Kimmo’s reliable materials.

We partner with relocation specialists to create a unique solution for each piece of art. The relocation experts provide experience in handling and packing, as well as their logistical network.

We bring our world-class range of standard products to the table, along with our knowledge of using multi-material combinations to create custom packaging.

Our standard KimmoBin and KimmoPly products are popular choices for transporting fine art, because of these key advantages:


They are more cost-effective than traditional plywood or solid wooden crates.

Export ready

They are exempt from ISPM-15 regulations, making the journey through customs easier.


They arrive flat-packed, saving on delivery costs and space.


They are more lightweight than solid wood or traditional plywood crates.

K-Vault Packaging

Working together with relocation specialists, Kimmo has developed the K-Vault, a standardised solution for relocating paintings. The K-Vault solution can be customised on-site for 85% of all painting sizes.

Primary packaging
K-Vault comes in small, medium, large and extra-large primary packaging, made from honeycomb or plywood and multiple layers of wrapping and foam. It is grouped into secondary packaging that can accommodate at least 4 to 6 primary units at a time.

Secondary packaging
The secondary packaging can be made from either honeycomb fibreboard or plywood, depending on the challenges of your logistical network and the level of protection needed.

Consult with the Kimmo team about your needs, and we’ll help you to develop a solution that will give you peace of mind when relocating your valuable art pieces.
