B.A.G. Corp.: Bulk Box Replacement

March 15, 2004
B.A.G. Corp has unveiled the FlexiStak container, a bulk box replacement that combines the best characteristics of a box with all the advantages of an FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container - a bulk bag). The FlexiStak container is ideal for resin pellets and other materials that are currently transported in corrugated boxes. The FlexiStak has an internal PVC frame that ensures stability and stackability. The stacking cones on the bottom allow the container to be stacked precisely and safely, and they work to efficiently distribute the load. The FlexiStak can be stacked four-high and collapse when empty. Because the container is made of polypropylene fabric, there is no need for an additional liner, eliminating problems encountered when using a vacuum wand for dispensing. The FlexiStack is available in the same dimensions as large corrugated boxes, and there is no need for new filling or discharge equipment. The FlexiStak can be transported on a pallet or with lifting loops made of B.A.G. Corp's Tuff webbing. The container is also available with an optional forklift channel that allows the container to be used without a pallet. The FlexiStak will not fail if wet and is collapsible when not in use. B.A.G. Corp will be displaying the FlexiStak Container at this year's Powder/Bulk Solids Show in Rosemont (Chicago), IL at booth #2056, May 4-6, 2004.
