Be Seen, Be Safe

At Protective Packaging we take safety very seriously. Through risk assessment we have identified areas within the business where hi visibility clothing must be worn.

All staff operating in our warehouse and yards wear hi visibility vests to ensure they are clearly visible to fork lift truck traffic as well as commercial traffic delivering and collecting goods to and from Units within the yard.

Any staff not wearing hi visibility vests must walk around the yard perimeter via a designated route to ensure they do not come into contact with vehicles.

The motto is Be Seen, Be Safe.

Monitored humidity levels

foil bag for machinery Our customers at Protective Packaging often contact us when they have a need to monitor the humidity levels within a sealed bag. This is often a requirement when goods are being shipped or stored for long periods of time.

In situations like this we would offer a Humidity Indicator, which we would integrate into the barrier foil bag. The way that a Humidity Indicator works is that it provides a humidity monitor of the bag contents, a measure of the effectiveness of the aluminium barrier foil bag and desiccant which are used to protect the products from moisture ingress.

We use two styles of humidity indicators, a humidity card that we place behind a clear panel and a more sophisticated version, a screw in indicator. The way that the indicators work is that a blue colouration to the card indicates that the relative humidity is below the critical level and that therefore corrosion has not taken place.

The key benefits of using a humidity indicator is that it is a cost effective why of monitoring products during long term storage. It eliminates product damage and monitors the condition of the goods during storage and transit.

Machinery Export – What makes Barrier Foil Packaging Cost Effective?

barrier foil v polytheneMany people are under the assumption that barrier foil packaging will work out more expensive compared with their current method. In comparison to traditional polythene packaging this is true with regard to the cost of the actual bag or liner,however, it’s vital to compare all the other associated items which make Barrier Foil the best and cheapest option.
The major issue is the amount of desiccant required within a barrier foil bag. Calculated to British Standard 1133 Section 19 the superior moisture vapour barrier properties of the barrier foil allows the total amount of desiccant to be reduced dramatically. Less desiccant can also mean reduced freight costs.
Another saving is the elimination of any preservation methods which are time consuming in both the application before packing and removal when delivered.
Finally, and most importantly, the machine arrives at it’s destination in perfect condition with no sign of corrosion, a cost saving which needs no explanation.
