Determining The Proper Size Bag For Pallets & Bin Liners

How to determine the right size cover or liner for your pallet or gaylord cover:
Pallet Size Example:
Dimension A Length - 50"
Dimesion B Width - 44"
Dimesion C Height - 48"

For a Pallet Cover:
Add approximately 2" to dimension A and add 2" to dimension B for a loose fit. For height (C) add one half of width dimesion B to the actual Height dimension C.

Resulting in A Bag Size (Pallet Covers)

Gusset Bag

A - 50" + 2" =52"
B - 44" + 2" =46"
C - 48" + 22" = 70"

SIZE TO ORDER for Pallet Cover: 52" x 46" x 70"

For a Closeable Bag for use as a box or bin liner:

Add approximately 2" to dimension A and add 2" to dimension B for a loose fit. For the height (C) add the width dimension B plus 7-12 inches for tie-off length to the actual Height dimension C.

Example of Bin or Box Size to be lined and the bag to be closed at the top. (tied off)

Box or Bin Size:
Dimension A Length - 50"
Dimension B Width - 44"
Dimension C Height - 48"

Add approximately 2" to dimension A and add 2" to dimension B for a loose fit. For height (C) add the width dimension B plus 7 inches (for a 7 inch tie off) to the actual Height dimension C.

Resulting in A Bag Size (Closeable Bag Liners)
A - 50" + 2" =52" B - 44" + 2" =46" C - 48" + 44" + 7" = 99"

SIZE TO ORDER for a box or bin liner that can be closed at the top is: 52" x 46" x 99"

Lay Flat bags can also be used for both pallet covers and as a box (bin) liner. Simply add dimesion A plus B resulting in a bag size of 98" x 99" for the example above if a lay flat bag is desired.
