How to choose your Big Bag ?


Do you need a solution for transporting or storing bulk products – such as gravel, sand, plastic granules or grain –, but don’t know which Big Bag to choose? Don’t stress! We can work with you to define the flexible container best suited to your needs.

Big Bags, also known as FIBCs, are flexible polypropylene containers for handling and transporting bulk products. Their woven fabric is UV-resistant. This solution can hold a maximum weight of 1.5 tons per standard bag. It is available in reusable (safety factor 6:1) or single use (safety factor 5:1) versions. Our partners have many certificates and offer specific designs such as flexible silos for foodstuffs, silos for storing hazardous material or bags that can withstand 2-ton loads, etc.

The flexible silo can feature a filler neck suitable for each process to fill the bag while controlling the flow This system prevents spillage. The bag top full opening option is an optimised solution for filling in one go. Your bag therefore becomes a storage container. For easier material transfer, we offer bags with filler skirts, which (thanks to their additional fabric) can open up flexible containers fully and prevent content spillage by closing them fully.

To manage the flow rate during emptying, whether full or partial, the bag can be fitted with a discharge chute. The bag bottom full opening option is used to quickly and easily empty the contents of the flexible silo in one go, while guaranteeing handler safety thanks to remote opening. It is possible to close the bag bottom fully thanks to the flat bottom option. It is suitable for bag storage and transport only.

ManuLine can customise flexible containers with company colours by printing (on one or more sides) to give brands more visibility. A document holder can also be added to identify Big Bag contents.
