Offering exceptional strength in a compact size, Magnum Smooth Wall has been added to the range of folding large containers (FLCs) from Schoeller Allibert, a world leader in plastic reusable transit packaging (RTP).
Safely carrying unit loads of up to 700Kg, the compact 800 x 600mm Smooth Wall is available in three heights which each feature a drop-door to allow easy access for manual filling or unloading, even when stacked.
Shock-absorbing sides protect contents from damage which, combined with its compact size, makes Smooth Wall ideal for many supply chain operations including just-in-time distribution of delicate parts and components and retail delivery to point of sale. Smooth, hygienic surfaces ensure Smooth Wall meets the high standards of hygiene required by the food and pharmaceutical industries and is also available with ventilated sides. By encouraging air flow, the enhanced ventilation speeds up cooling in chillers and preserves the quality of fresh produce.
Compatible with all types of handling equipment, Magnum Smooth Wall folds down to just 292mm – saving space on the return journey which can cut down on the number of trips and reduce both costs and emissions.
Simon Knights, Schoeller Allibert’s regional sales director for the UK and Ireland, explained: “An alternative to both 600x400mm crates as well as one-way containers, Magnum Smooth Wall provides the shock absorption and protection required to protect a wide range of products from transit damage, as well as easy handling and increased supply chain efficiency. As a compact alternative to our well-known Maxipac range, Smooth Wall can also be configured with enhanced ventilation which is crucial to the fresh produce industry.
“Available on a two-runner pallet base or with wheels, customers can select the option best suited to their needs and handling equipment, and can also opt for a lidded version. All the components of the container are easily replaceable, allowing for straightforward repairs in the case of any damage, while at the end of its life each Magnum Smooth Wall is 100 per cent recyclable, helping customers meet environmental targets for transit packaging.”
