Optimum protection with Lachenmeier pallet wrapping
Choose the right pallet wrapping for optimum load stability, transport protection and pallet weather protection. We test your products to find the lowest possible price per pallet without compromising load integrity.
Stretch hood films are well suited for pallet protection for applications where pallet loads require five-sided protection from weather, dirt, dust, pilferage, etc. Compared with stretch wrapping and top sheets or pallet covers, stretch hood is considerably more effective in protecting the product against rain when stored outside. Stretch hood provides a clear view of product name and logo, which improves the branding of the product.
