Schoeller Allibert, a world leader in plastic reusable transit packaging (RTP), has introduced Magnum Optiframe, a collar accessory for the Magnum Optimum which further increases the versatility of the folding large container (FLC) range.
The Optiframe collar increases the Magnum Optimum’s unit height in increments of 105mm, meaning it can be configured to match the height of products being distributed. It also provides a safe recess for the return of dunnage which can be stored within the base of the unit, making it ideal for the return transport of fragile cloth or vac-formed dunnage which is protected within the frame.
Simon Knights, regional sales director – UK/Ireland from Schoeller Allibert, comments: "We developed the Magnum Optimum range to provide our customers with the most comprehensive range of FLCs on the market. Optiframe’s added versatility allows users to configure the Magnum Optimum to match the exact size of products being shipped, optimising vehicle fill and helping to keep transport costs to a minimum."
Versatility is a key benefit of the Magnum Optimum range, with parts held in stock and assembled to order giving customers the option to configure the container in a number of different ways. Four different wall heights are available, as well as a standard or reinforced base – the latter able to carry loads of up to 1,000kg. The choice to add an optional lid and the Optiframe collar add further flexibility, making the Magnum Optimum a bespoke solution.
Magnum Optimum has the best folding size-to-weight ratio of all FLCs on the market. A full trailer load carrying folded Magnum Optimum FLCs saves up to 33 per cent more space and weighs as much as 2500kg less than competing containers, helping operators to reduce the number of vehicle trips, save fuel costs and lower carbon emissions.
Magnum Optimum is an efficient and time saving solution which can be erected or folded down by a single operator, with sliding or folding doors giving easy access to contents even when stacked. It is also a highly hygienic design with smooth sidewalls throughout.
