Branding - stand out
SCREEN PRINTING METHOD
We offer screen printing on every container. Screen printing is a single-colour print applied with a special ink. It is possible to apply the customer's logo so that the container can be easily identified. Screen-printed markings are made in one colour, usually black or white.
At BPLAST we also offer engraved markings on our products to ensure individual identification of the container. The engraved markings are permanent and cannot be removed without trace. Possible markings include a serial number, company name or destination e.g. CAT.3
For the most demanding customers, we also offer multi-colour graphic marking for insulated containers. In-mould marking is a visual way of identifying the customer with a company logo or any other graphic. The technology can also be used for marketing purposes or to reinforce a brand. This unique method of marking can also be used to present user guidelines or other messages that need to be presented for a specific product application.
The leading colour for your company's packaging is red, green or maybe yellow? This is absolutely not a problem for us. On request, we are able to produce any individual colour of the container from 1 piece!
Colours according to the HACCP system
One of the key elements in maintaining the highest level of cleanliness and hygiene in a production facility is to prevent "clean" and "dirty" containers from crossing paths. This is achieved by using the appropriate colour scheme for transport and storage packaging, according to which six colours have been defined for both insulated containers and other packaging and accessories in processing plants.
- Red - intended for raw meat
- Blue - intended for raw fish, seafood
- Green - intended for fruit and vegetables
- Yellow - intended for raw poultry
- Brown - intended for cooked meat and sausages
- White - for dairy products and bread
When stacking insulated containers make sure that:
- all containers have no damage to the corner handles, walls and feet or skids
- the place on which you place the containers has an even and stable surface
- the stack of containers stands straight and does not tilt due to uneven floor surfaces or improper stacking
- the containers are stacked on top of each other and sit evenly and straight on top of each other
Always follow these rules!
- never lift containers on hooks if their top corners are damaged or have been previously repaired
- always keep a safe distance from containers being carried or transported even if they are stacked
- use protective health and safety clothing
- When transporting containers in a stack with a forklift, always do so by carefully picking up the container on the long side. Skids, will provide extra stability when driving over long distances and uneven surfaces.
- ensure that the slope of the floor does not affect the stability of high stacks
- Always repair slightly damaged containers on a regular basis and remove used or severely damaged containers from circulation.
Image is everything
Keeping insulated containers clean is an extremely important aspect of their use. A clean container shows its owner and respect for the customer. Regular cleaning significantly extends the life of the containers. Repairs are significantly reduced and the quality of transport services always remain at the highest level. In addition, regular professional cleaning saves time and money. This contributes to customer satisfaction and leads to long-term customer satisfaction.
- always wash insulated containers after use
- if you see damage, remember not to continue using them but to pass them on for repair
- use containers for their intended purpose, only for foods products
If you understand that the cleanliness of insulated containers demonstrates your professionalism and the quality of the goods being transported in the eyes of your customers then you are one step ahead of the competition.

BPLAST insulated containers are easy to handle. They can be handled with a standard pallet truck as well as rotated 180° with a forklift. They can also operate safely when fully loaded on tippers. The same models can be stacked with each other.
Lifting and turning:
The containers are manufactured on a pallet base conforming to generally accepted standards and allow four-way access by a hand pallet truck and a forklift. All containers have safety handles that allow them to be lifted when fully loaded and facilitate the movement of empty containers.
Stacking, with or without lids:
All BPLAST containers of the same type, and most insulated containers from other manufacturers, stack together.
Models 400-1, 600 and 630-1 can be stacked.
Models 460-1, 660-1, 660-2, 660-3 can be stacked.
Insulated containers can be stacked, even when fully loaded. A moderate number of stacked containers, good care and regular maintenance make the containers last much longer. PE insulated containers are stronger than PUR containers and can therefore be stacked higher. The maximum stacking height varies for different types of containers and the weight of their contents. Nevertheless, it should always be considered that the risk of an accident increases when the containers are stacked higher than necessary. Note that the risk of damage to a container at the bottom of the stack increases in direct proportion to the number of containers in the stack. It is therefore important to place the stacks on a different base and with the weight evenly distributed. It is also necessary that the containers stand exactly one inside the other when stacking. Otherwise, the entire stack may topple over, causing injury to people nearby. Although there is no universal rule for how many containers can be stacked, factors such as the weight of the contents and the age and condition of the containers should always be considered on a case-by-case basis, and extreme care should always be taken when stacking containers . When insulated containers are stacked one container in two (cap) and loaded onto a truck or other transport, they should only be handled by a forklift or similar device. It is not advisable to drop containers from a truck, drop them from a transport vehicle or drop them from any height (1 metre or more), such as a forklift. It is then very likely that the handles of the plastic container inside the sandwich will damage the inside of the lower plastic container. The danger of damage increases dramatically when the temperature drops below 0°C.
Freezing - working in freezers:
The use of insulated containers to freeze their contents is not recommended due to the possibility of structural damage.
Throwing frozen goods into insulated containers is prohibited, any damage caused by sharp edges and/or the weight of frozen items will not be covered by the warranty.
Polyethylene is resistant to most weak acids and bases, as well as other common substances. More detailed specifications regarding their chemical tolerance can be obtained from the manufacturer.
