Cover covers ensure a tidy load
It is becoming more common in the transport world to neatly and cleanly cover goods that we put on transport or in storage. Ultimately, this allows you to save significantly on operational costs. For example, fewer people are needed to clean goods that come out of storage, customer complaints because goods arrive at the customer dirty or wet due to weather influences or foods that do not meet a certain temperature on delivery. Covers for roll containers or isothermal covers for roll containers are therefore very useful, but not every cover is suitable for the same purpose. What should you take into account when purchasing a protective cover? We want to give you the answer to this question in this blog article. We list the differences between our roll container covers for you:
These water-repellent transparent covers are made of polyethylene. This polyethylene cover is usually called a disposable cover for roll containers. Usually, these roll container covers are used during transport from your warehouse to your customer, where the customer will remove the cover and throw it away after receipt. This way you can be sure that your goods arrive clean and dry at the quality control. This type of roll container cover could be used multiple times, but then it must be used neatly and carefully removed from the roll container as it is thin plastic. A disadvantage of these polyethylene covers is that they are only moderately breathable.
These water-resistant opaque covers for roll containers are made of white polyethylene. This polyethylene cover is generally also referred to as a disposable cover for roll containers, comparable to the transparent cover for roll containers described above. These roll container covers are usually used if goods have to be stored for a while prior to transport after an order picking process with a packing slip on it. In this way, you prevent goods from being removed from the roll container after the order picking process, such as completing another order. You cannot see from the outside what has been put on the roll container for transport from your warehouse to your customer. In this way, you can be sure that the order that has been prepared remains complete and that goods arrive clean and dry at the quality control of your customer. This type of roll container cover could also be used multiple times, but then it must be used neatly and carefully removed from the roll container as it is thin plastic. A disadvantage of these polyethylene covers is that they are only moderately breathable. As a result, suffocation can occur under the roll container covers if the roll container with goods has been stored in a damp environment for a longer period of time and the cover is not removed in time, which does not benefit the protection of your items.
In addition to the disposable roll container covers described earlier in this blog article, we also have roll container covers of a higher quality. The reusable roll container covers are made of thicker polyethylene plastic and are equipped with 2 zippers so that they can be easily and quickly attached to a roll container and removed just as quickly. The opaque white roll container cover protects the products you are transporting or have in storage from dust, dirt and water. It is not immediately possible to see what has been placed in the roll container and the goods are extremely well protected. Once the delivery has taken place, the cover can be easily and quickly removed and folded so that it does not take up much space during return transport.
The quality requirements for food and also medicines are becoming higher and higher and this demands more and more from producers and transporters of foodstuffs or medication. It is essential to create the best possible climate for these goods when they are being transported to your customers. To be able to realize this for you, we offer the somewhat more expensive isothermal roll containers in our range but a cheaper solution is our isothermal roll container cover, which is made of high-quality silver-coloured PES foil with air-cushion foil of 3mm thick. This isothermal cover for roll containers is reinforced with textile on 1 side and therefore suitable for multiple industrial uses. This isothermal cover for roll containers is easy to apply or remove by means of 2 zippers on the front and the goods in the roll container are accessible without having to altogether remove the isothermal cover. We have clearly mapped out the heat conductivity, the thermal resistance and finally the K value for you on the product page.
