Polythene Bags Video Transcript

Plain polythene bags are sold in 25 different sizes and come in 3 different duties: light duty, medium duty and heavy duty. Polythene is safe to use as it does not impart any kind of residue or taste making it suitable for every kind of application. All our bags are made from food safe, quality film.

Choosing the right bag for you may seem like a difficult task but I’m here to help you make the right decision. Light duty bags are mostly used for keeping things clean or free from dust. You could also use them to bag clothing for storage. The polythene is light and floppy however and has poor resistance to sharp corners or edges so we would not recommend the light bags for this application. Medium duty bags are twice the thickness and can be used for items with corners or edges but we’d recommend not putting metal inside them. They tend not to collapse when being filled and they are ideal for cables, plastic plumbing or drainage items, or light toys and stationery. Heavy duty bags carry more weight. They cope with harder and sharper edges and provide extra rigidity when packing and displaying.

Order online or by telephone before 3pm and we aim to despatch your order the same working day. Orders over the value of £55 are delivered free of charge.
