Child Resistant Closures
Cormack is a market leader in Australia for Child Resistant Closures
Cormack’s market leadership comes from the superior design of its CR-111 closures. This superiority comes from a unique, circular child resistant system with 12 engaging drive ramps. Cormack caps have 4 more times the drives than the other caps that have only 3 clicking ratchets on the side of the cap.
The 12 drives in this unique circular mechanism means that that minimal force is needed to remove or replace the cap. Other caps require considerable downward pressure on the closure before it is becomes child resistant.
For older people whose hands might be disabled with arthritis or other degenerative joint disease, the less pressure required to close the bottle the better.
This is an important safety measure as medicines that are packed in child resistant bottles are often used in the middle of the night when the patient is sick and the carer is half asleep.
The emotional stress of the moment can often mean that people are not paying full attention when replacing the cap. So a cap that is forgiving as the Cormack CR-111 lessens the chance of accidental poisoning caused by a non closed cap.
Further Cormack’s child resistance closures do not have a clicking back ratchet mechanism that could attract children to "fiddle" with the cap to produce that clicking sound. This fiddling can cause accidental opening.
Cormack CR111 child resistant closures have an active US FDA Drug Master File. The Drug Master File is used to support applications for new Drug Applications submissions to the FDA.
Cormack offers 2 piece child resistant, senior friendly closures that are available in 20 mm to 38 mm sizes. Cormack can provide child resistant closures that are designed for use with hydrocarbon based household products to suit bottles made from PET, HDPE or PVC.
