When you need to efficiently protect pallets, crates and boxes from dirt, dust, moisture or the elements, shrink hoods and plastic pallet covers are the way to go. Not only do they offer excellent protection, they also secure goods, preparing them for safe transport.
Shrink hoods are unsurpassed when it comes to securing packaged goods. They are not only placed over the goods, but also shrunk to conform to the exact size and shape of whatever it is protecting. This can be done very simply by using a conventional heat-shrink gun or shrink tunnel – the hot air causes the shrink hood to contract and hugs the products like a second skin. The goods can no longer slip, and are securely situated on the pallet. This is perfect for transport across short and long distances – even across countries and continents.
Pallet covers, also known as hoods, are a particularly practical alternative. They are also draped over the pallet in a few simple steps, but are not shrunk with hot air. Although they do not fit their contents as snugly as shrink hoods, they are easier to remove and can be used again and again.
Our packaging solutions are produced individually according to your specifications. Upon request, we can produce your shrink hoods or pallet covers perforated on rolls, which gives you extra convenience. Simply tear off, slip over the pallet or goods, or even use it to line crates. Send it through the shrink tunnel and you’re done!
Precise, customised manufacturing ensures that you always have the right size and format for your pallets or crates. After all, the better the fit, the better the protection.

In addition to their main purpose – packaging, securing during transport, and protecting their contents from dirt and moisture – coloured and printed shrink hoods offer many further advantages. Colours aid in the sorting and arranging of pallets, making them easily identifiable with minimum effort. Printed with labels or messages, they are also an indispensable means of communication.
