FIBC Bulk Bag Features
Bulk Bag Top
Choose from open top bulk bags or duffle top bags which can be tied closed to cover the contents.
Bulk Bag Bottom
Most of the bags have a flat bottom and some have a discharge spout with a star petal closure. The spout drops down 18” from the center of the bottom panel and is 14” in diameter. If you don’t need to use the bag again, the flat bottom can but cut to empty the bags if needed.
Bulk Bag Handles
The handles on the corners are used for lifting heavy loads with a forklift. Our bulk bags have either 4 corner handles or cross corner handles. This makes it easy to lift heavy loads using transport hooks. Though they can hold over 2,000 pounds of material, an empty bag only weighs about 3 or 4 pounds.
The bulk bags that are made of 100% virgin polypropylene resin are food safe in compliance with the Food and Drug Administration 21 CFR 177.1520. While most of our bags are food grade, not all are, so check if the bag you want is food safe if that’s a requirement.
Bulk Bag Construction
The most popular style is U-Panel bags which are constructed out of two “U” shaped panels that overlap on the bottom. This gives the bags a large lifting capacity and is the industry standard.
Circular bags are woven in a cylinder or tube shape with, most commonly, a square shaped bottom panel sewn on. There are no seams on the sides of the bag making it ideal for fine materials. It is also easily lifted and manipulated with a fork lift. Please note that these circular bags often look square because of the shape of the bottom and the way they are folded. See our Circular Duffle Top Bulk Bag with Spout Bottom.
While all our bags are roughly the same width and depth of 35″ x 35″, the heights range from 30″ to 70″ tall.
Coated or Uncoated
Uncoated bags allow air and moisture to pass through the container. If you need a moisture barrier and an extra layer of protection, try our coated bulk bags. Coated bags have a polypropylene film that’s added to the fabric to seal small gaps in the weave. This helps keep fine particles and powder from seeping out, but it does not make the bag waterproof or suitable for carrying liquids.
