More info on SSI Schaefer EF Series Containers

The conductive SSI Schaefer Euro containers provide your products, components, and tools with market leading protection in a number of ways.

Firstly, the conductive Polypropylene material channels any static charges around the outside of the container, protecting any static sensitive items within.

In fact, these ESD safe containers specific volume resistance of 103 Ohm x cm and specific surface resistance of 104 Ohm.

Secondly, the tough, robust material also provides the highest levels of physical protection – everything from being dropped, crushed and general mishandling during normal transit and storage operations.

The levels of protection can be further enhanced through the addition of a standard range of lids. Available in hinged or clip on varieties, the lids offer further protection against dust and moisture, alongside the resistance to grease, oils and alkalis of the material itself.

The use of custom interiors for these boxes – such as Correx® dividers, custom foam inserts or even the range of EF compatible insert boxes – can all increase protection levels too.

This is achieved through minimising the movement of items within during transit. The anti-static foam options in particular also offer a degree of cushioning protection.

Ultimately, this can all add up to significantly lower your business’ costs through less stock written off as damaged, fewer customer returns and even an enhanced perception of your company aiding repeat sales (through reliable supply).

Improve efficiency whilst reducing costs

Besides the protection offered to your items, the SSI Schaefer EF Series boxes can also improve the efficiency of your operations.

The range of sizes have been designed to work alongside most industry standard sizes of racking, conveyors etc., which makes them perfect for both manual and automatic handling environments.

If being used manually, the integrated handle allows for quick and easy lifting and movement of the containers by your production or warehouse teams. The inbuilt rims also allow for safe and easy stacking of the containers.

This efficiency can be further enhanced through the use of varying inserts (foam, division sets etc.) as it allows for the efficient movement of multiple items within a single container. The load capacity of 20kg ensures that this is still the case, even with larger and /or heavier items.

And finally, the smooth surfaces also ensure that the totes are easy to clean. This again improves their usable lifespan, whilst also making them an ideal choice for medical or clean room applications.

Common queries about SSI EF Series

Please see below for the most commonly asked questions on the topic of the SSI Schaefer EF Series conductive range of containers.

What does EF stand for?

The EF in the SSI EF Series containers stands for “Euro Fix”. What this essentially means is that these containers are designed to work with typical equipment, racking etc. used in warehouses and production facilities throughout Europe.

What size EF Series conductive totes are available?

There are 17 sizes within the EF series range of tote containers. However, these can be modified further with inserts (including the EF Series dedicated inset boxes) as well as the choice of lid options. The stock sizes have also been designed in order that they are compatible with the vast majority of standard conveyors, racking, warehouse equipment etc.

Are moulded plastic containers more expensive than corrugated equivalents?

Whilst the initial investment required to purchase moulded plastic containers is typically higher than for corrugated cardboard or Correx® equivalents, the strength and durability provided by the material does offer improved longevity. This means that the overall lifetime costs are frequently lower.

Can these EF containers be stacked?

Besides minimising any health and safety risks associated with stacking containers, this feature also allows for the optimum use of space within your plant or factory. This reduces the storage required and maximises the efficiency of your warehouse.

I only need a low volume of containers – is this possible?

The extensive stock holding of these containers at GWP means that you can cost effectively order them in practically any volume. Plus, with lead times as short as 48 hours, you can further reduce your stock holding to create space within your facility for the storage of other items or increased production capacity.
