Stackable plastic bin holds big load

DEMAND for greater storage bin capacity has prompted a Beds-based firm to extend its range to a 0.5t plastic model.

The Dolav Box Pallet, from Linpac Materials Handling, is designed for use by fruit/vegetable growers and processors. Measuring 1600 x 1050 x 675mm (64 x 42 x 27in), the box has a capacity of 800 litres and holds about 0.5t of produce. It stacks up to eight high, with a total load of 4t.

The box incorporates ventilated sides and base to assist with temperature pull-down in cold stores, and is free from dirt traps to ease cleaning.

Options include hinged sides, castors, nameplates and label holders. Price of the 0.5t model starts at £165 (01582-664255).
