Collapsible Container

Loadhog’s Collapsible Container is a stable, robust and lightweight container used in a wide range of industries and applications with various space-saving and operationally efficient features.

Collapsible storage boxes with lids are currently used by retailers to improve picking efficiency in the warehouse and shelf replenishment in the store. With the return efficiencies of empty containers being significant in this sector, this container is the perfect solution. This new Loadhog’s Collapsible Container innovation has been developed to tackle issues with comparing totes in the marketplace.

Loadhog product design team and testing engineers moulded this product to maximise ergonomic handling and high impact resistance. Compared to an attached lid container of the same footprint and height, they can provide increased volume due to the straight walls.

Critical Benefits of Loadhog’s Collapsible Container

  • Space-saving return efficiencies – The collapsible container boasts a stacking ratio of up to 5:1, increasing vehicle fill when returning empties and saving storage space in the warehouse.
  • Vertical bump fit walls – Walls remain vertical without handling, making it easier for users to collapse and construct the tote.
  • Loadhog’s Collapsible Container reinforced corners and base – Increases capacity, impact resistance and durability.
  • Fully integrated lids – Fully integrated lids are available for the protection of goods within.
  • Pally and lid compatible – All Loadhog containers work in conjunction with the Loadhog Pally & Lid system to provide the ultimate Returnable Packaging (RTP) solution, eliminating one-trip packaging.
  • Multiple heights available – The Loadhog Collapsible Container is available in two heights, 320 & 400mm, to suit various requirements, maximising the efficiency per load.

The following Accessories & Options are available for the Loadhog’s Collapsible Container

Identification features – Various labelling locations and optional embossed labelling.

Optional divider –Bump fit walls remain vertical without handling to ensure easy handling of the container.

Security seals – These are available for various levels of security requirements.

Glass packaging systems for bottles

LoadHog who are located in Sheffield in the UK, has been pioneering the development and supply of modern glass packaging systems for bottles. The Loadhog’s plastic layer pad, know as SmartPads, have shown to be the safest, most cost-effective method of packing beer and wine glass and transporting tall pack pallets for both the producer and the filler.

Since the launch, LoadHog has found new applications for the layer pad within the canned goods industry. The waved edge profile encourages bottles and cans to migrate towards the centre of the pad during transit and other movements. The improved stability allows for additional layers of glass and cans per pallet, reducing transport requirements and associated costs.

Using SmartPads helps greatly with pallet stability for glass bottles, with the packaging being optimised while, in some cases, eliminating horizontal banding requirements. Consequently, bottle loss is reduced dramatically. Shepherd Neame, an English independent brewery for over 300 years, is one of our oldest Smartpad customers; reports zero bottles fall from their line since the system was adopted.

Bracing & anchoring solutions for ground-mounted solar arrays

The Solar Bracing Kit from Gripple wraps around the array to create a safe and robust structure, utilising substantially fewer materials on-site when compared to traditional systems; it’s an eco-friendly, lightweight solution that improves structural integrity.

These Solar Bracing Kit from Gripple are strong, giving you protection against active forces such as strong winds, storms, earthquakes and temperature expansion/contraction; they eliminate torsion, tension and compression issues.

Being lightweight, these Solar Bracing Kits replaces heavy steelwork framing, with the added benefit that several kits can be carried on-site at once. The kits are Robust, which helps to improve the structural integrity and maintains tilt angles by reducing the racking system’s ability to bend, twist and flex, especially in looser soils. Realigns misshapen posts and reduces panel sliding to deliver improved factors of safety is another benefit.

The Solar Bracing Kit from Gripple is versatile; for example, they increased resistance to sliding forces making the kit an ideal solution for steep slope and ballast installations. Finally, the material reduction and reduced requirement for on-site machinery delivery reduce the system’s carbon footprint, which is an important consideration.
