Schoeller Allibert Improves Attached Lid Container Design

New Kaiman 54 65 litre ALCs

Schoeller Allibert, a world leader in plastic reusable transit packaging (RTP), has updated its Kaiman attached lid container (ALC) range with the introduction of two new 54 and 65 litre models offering users  improved security and reduced operational costs.

The two new additions to the Kaiman ALC range have enhanced security features. These include the introduction of innovative teeth on the lid, which interlock with the container base to prevent lids from being prised open when closed, and fitted with tamper-evident security seals.

Schoeller Allibert has designed the new Kaiman ALCs to be 10 per cent lighter than existing models, reducing fuel costs and improving carbon footprint. In addition to the lightweight properties, the 54 and 65 litre ALCs stack seven high and carry a 25Kg unit load.

The ribbed finish over the sides and lid of the new 54 and 65 litre ALCs allows easy removal of adhesive labels without leaving a sticky residue, while the ticket window retains and protects identity cards and labels.

The improved ALCs also include features to ensure trouble-free operation with automated handling equipment, including vertically hanging lids and a tapered base, to create a smooth transition on conveyors, location points for automated opening and a reinforced base option that provides the closer tolerance required by some automated systems.

Danilo Oliynik, Managing Director UK & Eire of Schoeller Allibert, said: “We have developed two new Kaiman ALCs to be the most secure tamper-evident containers on the market providing our customers with unrivalled protection from opportunist theft. Stacking securely when loaded and nesting when empty, they also help to reduce transport costs, speed handling operations and eliminate packaging waste.”
