Stretch hoods

the secure alternative to shrink hoods

Protection from dirt and moisture, even for sensitive products

DUO PLAST offers you an effective alternative to shrink hoods, pallet hoods and protective covers: transparent, coloured or printed Generation 2.0 stretch hoods – inexpensive, without application of heat, with outstanding retention forces for reliable load unit stability. Our PE film hoods offer all the advantages of classic stretch wrap: enormous retention forces, elasticity and resistance to puncture – even for bulky, dissimilar or heavy goods. Just like shrink hoods and pallet hoods, they offer five-sided protection from contamination, wind and weather. Our shrink hood alternatives provide reliable protection against slipping, mechanical damage and penetration by water and pests.

Our cost-effective alternative to shrink hoods and pallet hoods

When securing loads on pallets, loads made up of many different packages with different lengths, widths, heights and weights represent a particular challenge. Typically, shrink hoods are used to package these types of pallet loads. These hug each individual package tightly, preventing the load on the pallet from slipping. This is exactly what our PE hoods do:

The tubing fits closely around the packages – but does not require application of heat or use of a shrink gun –saving energy and protecting sensitive products. The advantage over loose pallet hoods is that the cover fits much more tightly and transport stability is improved. Switch to using hoods from the DUO ROBUSTA series and give your load units optimum protection – as well as improving your packaging’s cost effectiveness, item by item, pallet by pallet, with transparent, opaque or individually printed stretch hoods.
