Open Top Lifting Bags

Why Buy Open Top Lifting Bags?

 There are numerous designs of heavy duty lifting bags available at Lifting Gear Direct, here we look at the open top lifting bag variety.

Lifting bags with an open top enable quick loading and easy access to its contents. They come in two types, round and Square, both with a fully certified lifting sling in place. The lifting sling is not sewn into the walls of the bag, instead they are passed through a specially stitched channel. Not only does this sling channel keep it in the perfect position for load stability, it also allows the sling to be passed through to facilitate easy inspection and possible replacement.

Round Open Top Lifting Bags

Round open top lifting bags have the advantage of having no corners and are therefore ideal for passing through tight spaces or lifting against the side of a structure. These heavy duty round lifting bags also boast the option of an additional rigid plastic liner which will alleviate potential damage to both bag and load which can be caused by sharp objects within the load.

Our collection of round lifting bags come in 5 load volumes; 35l, 99l, 117l, 147l & 385 litre. They also have a stated safe working load limit which must not be exceeded. They all have a SWL of 300kg apart from the largest 385litre bag which has a 500kg SWL.

Square Open Top Lifting Bags

The range of square lifting bags with an open top also includes rectangular lifting bags. Two opposite walls of these heavy duty lifting bags incorporate a double skin. This not only provides additional strength but provides access to the 2 rigid wall stiffeners which are 3mm thick and extend the full length. These wall stiffeners can be removed which makes storing the bag easier and with a more compact size.

It is also possible to add extra stiffeners to the other 2 sides to make the bag fully rigid, ideal for extra protection against sharp items.

There are 8 models in this category with holding capacities ranging from 75 litres to 320 litres.
