03: Product Protection.
EF Series containers offer the highest level of protection
The conductive SSI Schaefer boxes containers provide your products, components and tools with market leading protection in more ways than one.
Firstly, the conductive Polypropylene material channels any static charges around the outside of the container, protecting any static sensitive items within.
Secondly, the tough and 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.
Being available in hinged or clip on varieties, the lids offer further protection against dust and moisture, besides the resistance to grease, oils and alkalis of the material itself.
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.
The result of all this is a reduction in damaged products and components.
This, in turn, can 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).
Exceptional protection to minimise your business’ costs
04: Efficiency & Productivity.
Boost the efficiency of your manufacturing, storage and handling processes
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 handling of the containers by your production or warehouse teams.
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.
The stacking rims and lids also allow for safe and easy stacking of the containers.
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 frees up valuable space.
Finally, with lead times as short as 48 hours you can further reduce your stock holding, again creating space within your facility for the storage of other items or increased production capacity.
Improve the efficiency of your operations
05: Cost Savings.
Make a direct, noticeable improvement to your company’s costs
Whilst your business can see tangible benefits from minimising damages and improving your efficiency, there are in fact other ways that use of the SSI Schaefer boxes can have a positive impact on your operations.
The strength and durability provided by the containers ensure that, although the initial cost is higher than corrugated cardboard or fluted plastic alternatives, the improved longevity ensures that the overall lifetime costs are frequently lower.
The smooth surfaces also ensure that the totes are easy to clean, which again boosts their usable lifespan. This also makes them an ideal choice for medical or clean room applications.
The extensive stock holding of these containers also means that you can cost effectively order them in practically any volume.
Not only does this mean you can order the exact number that your business requires, but it again minimises the storage space required for the containers when they are not in use.
