What Are Bale Arm Crates?

A bale arm crate is a type of plastic container or crate that is widely used for the storage and transportation of various goods. It is called a "bale arm" crate because it has hinged arms that can be swung up to provide additional support for the crate's walls and bottom when it is loaded with heavy items. The arms can also be folded down when the crate is not in use, which makes it easier to store and transport.

What Can Bale Arm Crates Be Used For?

Bale arm crates are often used in industries such as agriculture, food and beverage, and retail, where they are used to transport and store items such as fruits and vegetables, bottled drinks, and other small to medium-sized goods. They are popular because they are durable, stackable, and easy to handle. They also provide good protection for the contents, as they are resistant to impact, moisture, and temperature changes.

Polypropylene Bale Arm Trays & crates are used by all the major supermarkets to display and store fresh produce. As they nest up to 76% to save return transport costs, they are ideal for product distribution and so are commonplace across the grocery supply chain. Most Bale Arm Trays & crates feature hand holes on the short sides for easy lifting and Alison Handling can also supply the appropriate dolly for the safe movement of loaded trays.

Alison Handling provides these trays in a variety of sizes and colours so you can find the perfect crates for your intended use.
