Polythene bags

Poly bags can be used for pretty much everything! Whenever there is a need to protect an item to store, you can always find a poly bag that is right for the job. Lighter density poly bags are a good choice for items that are not heavy and require only a simple shield from their surroundings. Heavy density poly bags keep your goods safe from harm in more abusive environments where dirt, dust, moisture, movement, etc. are factors that may damage your goods.

The shape of the bag is also an important consideration in some cases. Flat poly bags are general purpose bags that are often used where a clear presentation at a low cost is desired. We offer wicketted poly bags and gusseted poly bags for applications where the shape and style of the poly bag is vital to how it will be used. For protection against moisture in particular, a reclosable poly bag is suggested, keeping your goods safe while allowing for easy opening and closing.
