LiftPac® Self-Standing UN-Rated Bulk Bags

Heavy-Duty Self-Standing UN Rated FIBC

PacTec’s LiftPac® self-standing bulk bags are a practical, affordable option for reducing container costs. These specially designed bulk sacks can meet the needs for the disposal of lab waste, contaminated PPE, contaminated soil, and household hazardous waste, to name a few. They’re tested to meet UN Safety Standards and provide a sturdy storage and transport option for solid waste materials that are characterized by high-density weights.

Place the bulk bags at workstations and they can also serve as reusable storage receptacles for non-contaminated items. The flexible containers provide numerous advantages over other traditional, yet, bulky containers- like metal drums, paper bags, or rigid IBCs (intermediate bulk containers). Our heavy-duty, self-standing FIBCs provide a storage capacity equal to four 55-gallon drums.
