Barrel hoods for safe loading units

Barrel hoods for loading units up to four barrels

Our barrel hoods simplify the forming of safe loading units to secure barrels on pallets. They are easy to handle and thus avoid tedious barrel securing with shrink covers, stretch foil, wooden pallets or chipboards. The hoods are available for units of one to four barrels.


The hoods consists of polypropylene (PP), which makes them solid and resistant to most chemical solvents, caustics and acids.
