Child-Resistant Flexible Packaging Solutions

With the market launch of Child-Guard® Slider in 2014, The Fresh-Lock team introduced child-safe reclosability to brand managers searching for commercial alternatives to rigid packaging. This ushered in new opportunities for packagers to realize the many benefits of flexible packaging for regulated or potentially harmful products. Our innovative closures are specifically developed to meet international government regulation requirements for child-resistant as part of a certified pouch.  They remain the first choice for a wide range of products across multiple industries.

These “most common poisons in children*” can help be kept safe using child-resistant flexible packaging closures:

  • Pain medicine—the single most frequent cause of pediatric fatalities
  • Cleaning substances and laundry packaging
  • Pesticides
  • Vitamins
  • Cosmetics and personal care products
  • Antihistamines
  • Foreign bodies such as toys, coins, and thermometers
