More Product Info
ZARGES Retour® Collapsible Aluminum Shipping and Storage Case
ZARGES Retour Collapsible aluminum shipping and storage cases are economical units in a packaging and transport chain based on the principle “big out, small in.” Depending on their size and design, these containers can hold up to 1000 lb. When collapsed, their volume shrinks to around one third. When folded, there remains 0.59″ of free space inside the case, to accomodate an inner lining. The end walls and lid have additional reinforcing ribs for improved structural integrity.
The front wall of the Retour is hinged to fold down, which allows for loading from the top or front. The lid attaches to the back wall with a swing type hinge. The snap fasteners include integrated locks and can be further secured with seals and shackles. Integrated stacking corners facilitate storing and transporting multiple Retour cases in tandem. The case is also suitable for use on conveyor belts.
