Variety of loop construction options in FIBC Bags

One customization feature of FIBCs that make them a versatile bulk packaging solution is the top loop construction. With multiple loop construction options, bags can be customized to fit your specific application and operation.

FIBC-Silvassa make the lifting system that best suits your manufacturing process, depending on your needs. If the lifting system is correctly adjusted to your manufacturing process, this can optimize your operation.

Do not forget that the right lifting mechanism could significantly reduce the use of pallets. You can choose from the most common types of lifting mechanisms.

 • Corner loop:

The standard and most common type of loops. In each corner of the big bag is one loop. The bag can be lifted from the top by a forklift that has to catch all four loops.

 • Cross-corner loop:

Cross-corner big bags have loops that are sewn to eight points in opposite corners so that the loops have a larger opening. Certain users claim that it was easier to manipulate with this kind of loops. Cross-corner bags can be combined with all big bag types.One of the biggest benefits of using cross corner loop bags is the loop design and how they position themselves when the bag is full. These specific types of loops are designed to ensure that the lifting loops stand upright making it easier for forklift operators to grab and lift thus reducing bag handling times.

 • Tunnel loops:

Tunnel loops are a special type of loop made from bulk bag body fabric. Tunnel loops are a very practical style of lift loop for operations exclusively using forklifts to pick up and move FIBCs. If you are using forklifts exclusively to move bulk bags, then bags with/tunnel lift loops are a great option for you.

• One and Two loops:

One and two loops are simpler and more economical than 4 loops on the corners and are mainly used for lifting bulk bags with smaller capacity (from 500 to 1000 kg).

 • Stevedore

Stevedore straps/lift loops are special supporting loops designed for safe handling of bulk bags. While bags with four loops must be lifted at all four points for safe handling, bags with Stevedore loops allow lifting equipment to lift from only one or two. There are two different types of Stevedore Straps:

1. One Stevedore Loop: 

One Stevedore Loop is a loop pulled through the four standard corner loops to connect all of them.

2.Double Stevedore Loops:
Double Stevedore Loops are two loops that connect each parallel loop at the corners.
