What Plastic Crate Do I need?

Plastic Crates & Plastic Bins – What is available? How do I know which option is best for me?

choosing the right packaging supplier

When looking for a crate you should start by having a check list of criteria that’s important to you. Is it size, style, and capacity? Some things to consider in making your selection are;

Leak Proof – A solid crate is completely sealed all the way around and isn’t collapsible. This is the ideal choice when you need a crate that stops all moisture/liquid from escaping. One of the more common styles in that ticks this box is the Nally Mega Bin which measures: 1162 x 1162 x 780, its 2 way entry, can hold up to 780l.

Vented/Non Vented – Some crates have the option of air vents. If you need a crate for storing fruit, you may need to have air circulation or simply want your items to cool faster. A vented bin/crate is the ideal option. Our UBEECO Bins are 1200 x 1000 x 760. They’re 4 way entry and can hold a static weight of up to 4000kg. These crates come with the option of vent covers to cover the grate. This stops the air flow, but, this does not make it water proof.

Collapsible – The most common plastic crate we sell is out Oz Crate. It folds down to 300mm, its 4 way entry and can take 750l or up to 3000kg of static weight. The size is 1162 x 1162 x 785. This comes vented, but you can purchase vent covers to reduce the air flow if you need to avoid it.

All of the Plastic Crates / Plastic Bins we carry come with the option of buying a lid to suit, covers for vents on the vented options and in some cases, wheels.
