UN Containers with Lids.

UN containers (other than a cylinders or IBC) are small standardised containers whose  capacity extends to no more than 20 litres to 30 litres. These containers must be manufactured in accordance with the requirements of chapter 6.1* of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and ours have to adhere to the national regulations of the United Kingdom.

All H & O Plastics UN containers and lids are plastic injection moulded from high impact polypropylene for strength and durability.

30-litre container

This larger container  is supplied with side grip handles and this is combined with a substantial metal grip handle.

The UN container lids are fitted with a rubber seal, which makes the container completely leak proof. In addition to this, the container has a substantial metal locking band, which secures the lid in position for transport. Thus guaranteeing the products arrive with your customers intact.

The 20 litre container is similar in construction and is again, leak proof.
This container is competitive against the metal containers and has the advantage of nesting inside each other when empty, hence using less storage space.

We manufacture UN containers in white, blue, black and natural colour and they are generally used for the chemical, water based paints, dispersion manufactures, resin and flooring compounds companies.
