While bags known as FIBC bags, super sacks, bulk bags, 1 ton bags, waste management bags, landscape bags (they go by many different names, just in case you didn’t realize) etc… are easy to use, it is important to know how to store and transport them.
When storing a full bag, make sure there are no protruding items that can snag the bag, such as nails or other sharp items that can cut the bag.
Building walls, interior van walls, equipment, tools, other pallets, and other stored items… can cut a bag.
The best way to store these when full, is to store in an interior, dry location, out of sunlight, on the floor.
Only stack an FIBC bag if it is designed to stack and follow proper stacking instructions.
When transporting to another location, it is key that the FIBC bag and its contents are properly secured on a pallet so that it cannot shift during lifting or transporting. Remember, a bag can move and it is important that all personnel understand that one should never stand near or under an FIBC bag when not properly secured.
Never try to fix or sew a damaged bag. The bag must be disposed of so that it cannot be used by others after its one time use. All bags sold by the FIBC Bag Store are meant for one time use and not to be repaired if and when damaged.
