Round Containers

Round container sizes for flat bags can be found using Circumference(C), Diameter(D), and Height(H) of the container. Example: Let's assume the container Height(H) is 25" and the Diameter(D) is 12".

Step 1:

Circumference(C)= Diameter(D) x 3.14

   12(D) x 3.14 = 37"(C)

Step 2:

Width of Bag is found by Dividing 37"(C) by 2 and adding 1" for a looser fit.

   37"/2= 18.5" + 1" = 19.5"

Step 3:

Length of Bag= Height(H) + Diameter(D) + 5" for overhang.

     (H)25" + (D)12" + 5" = 42" 

Bag Size Needed is 20" x 42"


Square Containers

Square container sizes for flat bags can be found using Width(W), Depth(D), and Height(H). Depth is considered the shorter of 2 sides.

TO FIND BAG SIZE FOR A SQUARE CONTAINER, FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW:

Step 1:

Width of Bag Needed: Width(W) + Depth(D) + 2" for a looser fit. 

Step 2:

Length of Bag Needed: Height(H) + 1/2 of Depth(D) +5" for overhang. 


If container size is 14"(W) x 10"(D) x 32"(H), the formula would be:

Step 1:

14"(W) + 10"(D) + 2" = 26" Wide

Step 2:

32"(H) + 5"(1/2 of (D)) + 5" = 42" Long

Bag size needed is 26"x42"


Gusseted Pallet Covers

In order to determine the bag size needed, one must measure the Width(W), Depth(D), and Length(L).

Step 1:

Width(W) of the Cover = Width(W) of the pallet + 1-2".

Step 2:

Depth(D) of the Cover = Depth(D) of the pallet + 1-2"

Step 3:

Length(L) of the Cover = Height(H) of the pallet + 1/2 the Depth(D)

If pallet size is 40"(W) x 36"(D) x 50"(H),

cover dimensions are 42" x 38" x 68" 


Gussetd Box Liners

Sizes for Box Liners can be found using Width (W), Depth(D), and Height(H). The following steps allow you to determine the correct size.

Step 1:

Width(W) of the bag = Width(W) of the Box + 1".

Step 2:

Depth(D) of the bag = Depth(D) of the Box + 1".

Step 3:

Length(L) of the bag = Height(H) of the Box + Depth(D) of the Box + 6" to cover contents.

If the Box size is 18"(W) x 12"(D) x 14"(H), then the bag dimensions needed are:

19"(W) x 13"(D) x 33"(L).
