ADR UN certified bulk bags specifically designed for the transportation of hazardous goods

Product Uses

ADR or UN certified bulk bags are designed for the carriage of hazardous or potentially hazardous substances, goods or materials. As the name suggests these bulk bags have been specially designed and made to comply completely with the recognised UN standards.

Consequently, our ADR bulk bags are suitable for the transportation of a wide range of goods whereby there exists a danger of fire, explosion, chemical burns, toxic contamination or environmental damage.

It is a legal requirement that all ADR or UN certified bulk bags must have been rigorously tested against the required United Nations standards – often referred to as ‘The Orange book’. To pass, our ADR or UN certified bulk bags are tested to confirm their resistant qualities against all standards including accidental dropping, toppling, tearing as well as stability in stacking and self-righting within certain limits.
