UN Approved Fibreboard Cartons

fibreboard cartonsOur UN approved fibreboard cartons come in a huge range of shapes and sizes and can be combined with different inner containers in order to ship substances across long distances. There are two main categories of fibreboard cartons, 4G cartons and 4GV cartons. The main differences between the two are as follows:

4G Cartons

4G cartons are highly specific forms of container which have to be used in conjunction with a specific, approved liner. They can be used to transport substances which are dangerous or highly sensitive and have to be selected with a great deal of care. The carton and the inner liner have to be tested together, and we can provide a list of approved containers if you’re uncertain about what you should be using. If you’ve already got an inner container but are uncertain if it will meet the conditions of the licence which you need then well test the container for you and provide a report, although additional charges may apply for this service. From the first contact, we’ll work with you to ensure you can ship your products with complete peace of mind.

4GV Cartons

4GV cartons can be used with inner packs and liners which don’t have to be tested, including packing in the form of vermiculite granules, which is used to keep the contents safe and secure during transit. The requirement of a 4G licence means that there are limits on the size and weight of any liner which you do opt to use, and once again we can work with you to make sure that the fibreboard carton you eventually use – plus the inner packing – meets all the necessary requirements. As with 4G cartons we can work with you to make sure that you make the right choices and purchase the right product for your business.

What needs to be made clear, however, is that the responsibility for ensuring you satisfy all of the relevant conditions for packing and shipping your goods ultimately rests with you. We can offer our experience and expertise – not to mention our range of fibreboard cartons – but you, as packer or shipper, will have to sign off on the choices made.

Our products range from boxes which measure 175x155x300 to boxes designed to hold a 5 litre jerrican and 4 2.5 litre oblong tins. We also stock fibre drums supplied with a lid which can hold as much as 115 litres. No matter what you need we’ll provide it for the best possible price and in line with your deadlines.

UN industrial plastic buckets Are you transporting large quantities of solids or liquids? Are you looking for containers that ensure the safety of your product? Our UN industrial plastic buckets are exactly the kind of containers that you’re looking for.

Heavy-duty plastic buckets of this kind need to offer security above all else. You need to know that once you’ve filled them up and fastened the lid, the contents are completely safe, and so are the people charged with moving the drums. Our customers often need to shift large quantities of dangerous, corrosive or valuable solids or liquids across thousands of miles over land, sea and air. In circumstances such as these, the containers used are as important as any other factor. Cut corners here, and you could be jeopardising not only your business, your stock and the people who work for you but also those responsible for the logistics of shifting your items.

They all offer the peace of mind which comes from knowing they’re manufactured to UN-certified standards and can be supplied in either white or black. Press on matching lids complete the package and some of the smaller buckets can be supplied with a plastic handle fitted. For ease of use, certain sizes can also be ordered with lids which are fitted with spouts for pouring out the contents, and the variety is such that you’re bound to find the bucket which exactly meets your requirements.

Looking for a Plastic Wide Neck Drum?

Plastic Wide Neck Drum

When you purchase a plastic wide neck drum from Patrico you’re purchasing a top quality product at a reasonable price, but you’re purchasing much more besides. You’re purchasing the peace of mind which comes from knowing that an item on our website is ready and waiting in our warehouse. If it’s not, then our supply chain logistics, built up over years in the business, mean we can guarantee we’ll get the plastic wide neck drum you need to the location where it’s needed on the day when it has to be there.

The drums in question are manufactured from food grade materials and are especially suitable for storing and transporting tablets powders and granules. As such, they’re ideal for use in the pharmaceutical or catering industries. They are designed with straight sides which make it easier to remove the contents, as well as screw on lids which offer security and make it simple to stack the plastic wide neck drums on top of each other. The stable stacking characteristics of the drums offer an extra layer of security when storing or transporting items in bulk, making Patrico the supplier of choice for anyone who wants to be certain that their items will arrive in perfect condition.

Our plastic wide neck drums come in a range of sizes, from 3.6 litres up to 64 litres. We can also supply in different colours, from standard white with a red screw down lid to all black or brown with a beige screw down lid. The variety of colours is useful as a quick visual guide to the contents of individual groups of containers, and it also allows businesses to purchase containers which tie in with the colour scheme of their wider branding.

All of the drums we stock are UN approved to group 1 for solids. This means that you can rely on them to keep your items safe, fresh and free from harm, as well as protecting those individuals who come into contact with the exterior of the drums.

If you take a look at our website there’s a very good chance you’ll find exactly the drums you’re looking for. If not, get in touch with us and we’ll use our existing supply chains to source what you need and get it to you.

Patrico Can Supply the Jerrican You Need

Here at Patrico we like to keep things simple. Our clients know that if they want a jerrican, for example, they can easily check our website and make an order. Because we specialise in the industry and have spent years building up our supply chain and manufacturing capabilities, we’ll either have exactly the jerrican they need in stock, in bulk numbers, or will be able to get hold of it for them.

We’ll fill the jerrican order for the kind of price you’ll struggle to match anywhere else in the market, and we’ll deliver to the date specified, allowing the client to plan ahead and make commitments safe in the knowledge that we’ll play our part in helping them to successfully deliver.  When we describe this kind of excellence as keeping things simple we’re not pretending it’s easy to do. It takes a long time to get this good and a lot of effort to stay there, but the end result is that we make things extremely easy for our clients.

The versatility of the type of jerrican we stock is a case in point. Ranging in size from 1litre to 25 litres, our jerricans all come with moulded handles and, if they’re going to be used to store dangerous or sensitive substances, can be purchased with tamper evident screw necks. Other options include child proof or vented screw caps, and the fact that ever jerrican is manufactured from food approved HDPE (High-density polyethylene) means that they are tough, stable and versatile enough to be used in the broadest possible range of industries. A high resistance to chemical corrosion makes our jerrican suitable for the storage and transport of dangerous substances, as well as food and drink items.

Whether you wish to store detergents, fuel, cooking oil or solvent, we’ll have a jerrican which is perfect for your requirements. Businesses from catering through engineering to farming and beyond make daily use of the kind of jerrican we supply, reassured by the knowledge that it will help to keep vital stock and/or supplies in the best possible condition right up until the moment it has to be used. The fact that we supply jerricans in a range of colours – from natural and white all the way to blue and other colours which can be ordered individually depending upon the size of the order  – offers a two-fold advantage. In the first instance, colour coding of a jerrican will help in the storing of potentially dangerous substances, making it easier to control usage and prevent cross-contamination. The second advantage of the variety of colours is that it is possible to order a jerrican which complies with your wider corporate branding, allying practicality to a broader marketing effort.

If you have a specific jerrican requirement then please take a look at our website. There’s a very good chance that you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for and place an order immediately, with every jerrican you need ready and waiting to be dispatched immediately. If you can’t find the precise jerricans you need then contact us on 01684 299 212. A member of our team will be waiting to do everything they can to help you source the jerrican requirements your business has.

The issue of plastic waste, and the difficulty faced when trying to dispose of it safely, is one which has been in the news quite a lot recently. The products detailed above can play at least a small part in helping to solve the problem, not least in terms of making recyclable plastic the automatic choice of manufacturers.

We like to think that our commitment to providing our clients with items which are suitable for pet bottle recycling will help, for example,  to reverse the tide of waste plastic which is swamping our oceans and impacting upon the magnificent wildlife which lives there.

We’ve got the Plastic Drink Bottles You Need

The clients who come to Patrico do so for several reasons. The first and probably most important of these is that the products we provide are all manufactured to the highest possible standards. This applies to our plastic drink bottles as much as it does to anything else. Our plastic drink bottles are designed and manufactured with one thing above all else in mind – keeping the contents fresh.

If you sell beverages of any kind then the ability to ship them to various outlets without compromising the integrity of the liquids themselves is of paramount importance. Whether you’re dealing with dairy drinks, fresh fruit juice, smoothies or water, you want to know that your plastic drink bottles will keep them in the best possible condition.

This begins with the construction of the plastic drink bottles themselves. Our plastic drink bottles are manufactured from PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) plastic which is tough enough to withstand being transported in bulk, but light enough to be convenient for the end user. PET plastic is clear, which is highly advantageous when marketing and selling drinks on the basis of their taste and appearance They come in a range of different sizes, ranging from 250ml up to 5 litres, meaning they can be used for individual drinks or for transporting and storing larger amounts for uses such as catering.

Another plus point of our plastic drink bottles is that they come in a range of different shapes and designs, which makes them not only distinctive in terms of appearance but also flexible when it comes to storage.

Also, key to the promise of freshness which we give is the way in which our plastic bottles are sealed. The caps we put on our plastic drink bottles keep the contents fresh and can be ordered in a variety of different sizes and types. They are also available in a range of different colours, which makes them suitable for coordinating with the wider brand of a drink, as well as being a means of differentiating between different drinks.

The quality of our plastic drink bottles is something we’re pleased and proud to guarantee, but it would count for very little if we weren’t able to supply the products our clients need, when they need them. In the world of food and drink it can often be vital to keep goods moving in order to maintain freshness, and that’s why our clients are always grateful for our ability to meet the orders they make.

Our warehouse is packed with more than 1000 different lines of stock, meaning that we’re likely to have whatever plastic drink bottles you need ready and waiting to be shipped. Our supply chain and wider industry knowledge is such that, if what you need isn’t currently in stock, we’ll be able to source it for you quickly and easily. All of this is done with an emphasis on value as well as quality – we cut costs without cutting corners and provide our clients with the best plastic drink bottles at the keenest possible prices. If you need plastic drink bottles which you can rely on in every sense, from the quality of the bottles to the line of supply, then you really don’t need to look any further than Patrico.
