Choosing the right Protective Packaging, Part 1
If you have been following our blogs you will know that each
month we are looking at a different area of packaging. So far we have covered cardboard boxes in all
shapes and sizes, polythene bags through to clip close carrier bags and more
recently the packaging available for mail order.
For the next few weeks we are going to bring to your attention to the
different options available on Protective Packaging from Packaging Supplies Ltd. We have decided to kick of these blogs with all
things pallet related.
Shrink Pallet Covers
You can buy pallet covers from Packaging Supplies either on the roll
or loose boxed.
Pallet covers are designed to protect pallets in outside storage and
transit. The pallet covers will protect
against the elements, dust and dirt.
Once the pallet covers have been placed over the pallet, a heat shrink
gun can then be used to shrink the pallet cover tightly over the entire pallet
and it’s contents.
The pallet top sheets are designed to lay over just the top of the
pallet, they are then stretch wrapped which will secure the top sheets in
place. Pallet top sheets help to contain
the load and offer protection against the weather. They are supplied perforated on the roll.
folded Polythene Sheeting
Centre folded polythene sheeting can be used to protect pallets but
they are also popular in the removals industry to protect other bulky items
such as sofas and cabinets or used in the building trade as a floor covering.
Centre folded polythene sheeting is supplied on a roll. Once the sheeting is pulled from the roll it
can be unfolded to make a sheet double the width of the roll.
