Spanish term or phrase: cartón de doble y triple canal
The general context is boxes and other packing materials. Specifically: "Nuestra empresa es especialista en la realizazión de contenedores de cartón de doble y triple canal con palets adecuados a la necesidad de cada producto mediante tableros contrachapeados con guía de chapa, conos o tacos de poliestireno expandido."

My proposed translation: double and triple wall corrugated board (it's the "canal" bit that confuses me)

"double and triple wall cardboard" or "double and triple canal cardboard"
Explanation:
Both expressions are used. Here are citations using these alternative expressions:

1. WALL:

http://connellycontainers.com/box.htm

"The #10 Press -- Our new flexo-printer-diecutter-folder-gluer-stitcher is specifically designed for the production of one and up to four colors of high quality graphics for very large containers manufactured from the heaviest grade of single, double, and triple-wall corrugated board."


2. CANAL:

http://www.eipesa.com/inieipei.htm

“Manufacturing of cardboard boxes in double and triple canal.”


By far, "wall" is much more commonly used in English than "canal."
