A new lighter reusable container from Linpac is designed for blow
molded bottles, PET preforms, snack foods and vacuum formed trays.

With the emphasis on environmentally-friendly packaging by consumers and regulators, increasing costs for recycling have led more and more companies to turn to reusable containers to transport their products.

Linpac's Ropak Industry Standard container is designed to be used in warehousing, manufacturing, transportation, distribution and merchandising as replacements for single trip paper, cardboard and metal packaging.

Built on a 45 in x 48in footprint, the containers are available in 25 in. and 34 in. heights. The 25 in. height container offers 19.7 cubic feet (0.55 cubic meters) of storage volume, and the 34 in. height container offers 29.2 cubic feet (0.82 cubic meters) of storage volume.

Engineered to be lighter in tare weight than standard Ropak 45 in. x 48 in. footprint containers, the new containers offer capacities up to 1500 lbs. (680.4 kg). This makes them ideal for the storage and transportation of a variety of lighter weight to volume products.

The Ropak Industry Standard containers can be ordered with one or two hinged drop doors, or none at all. The 48 in sides offer four label openings- two on the drop doors and two below. The 45 in sides feature four label openings.

These areas allow for bar codes or other descriptions of contents. The containers feature a closed deck base. An optional cover is available to further protect contents.

When filled with a static load, the Industry Standard containers can be stacked up to six level hight. When empty, the containers' sidewalls collapse for compact storage and return shipment. The 25 in height container collapses to a height of 13.1 in. The 34 in. height container also collapses to a height of 13.1 in.

The container is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and copolymer polypropylene (CPP).
