Plastic Crates

MASSIVE SAVINGS on industrial plastic storage containers, crates, pallet boxes, picking boxes and small parts bins

Crates are material handling containers which can be used for storage, transport or distribution and handling of products. Traditionally crates in India were manufactured from wood but with developments in plastics processing and conservation of environment issues gaining importance in developed societies, most of the material handling crates are being manufactured to size to suit the end use, but are predominantly made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and sometimes from Polypropylene (PP). These injection moulded crates have a long life and are easy to handle due to its light weight, and have many other advantages over the traditional wooden crates.

The advantages of using plastic crates are:

  • Considerable reduction in weight and hence easy handling and transportation.
  • Freedom from sharp comers and splinters facilitating safe handling.
  • Complete freedom from corrosion unlike in the case of metal crates.
  • No noise while handling unlike metal crates.
  • Requires negligible maintenance compared to wooden and metal crates.
  • Have fairly long life and are suitable for multiple trips.
  • Good resistance to chemicals and harsh environment. Can be made in variety of colors and hence have better sales appeal.
