Safety Packaging for Seniors and Children

Danish packaging company Superfos says it has introduced a new child-proof and senior-friendly opening and closing mechanism that meets demands for UN-approved packaging standards.

The company says it has taken the initiative to launch the new mechanism, SuperFlex, as a results of NF EN ISO 8317, which was extended in 2003 to stipulate that packaging closures should be impossible for children under 51 months to open, and easy-to-open for seniors in the age 50 - 70 bracket.

The big challenge with meeting these requirements is the fact that the closures must ensure that young children cannot access the packaging, keeping them away from hazardous chemicals or potential toxins, while, at the same time, also making it easy for older users to access.
