Why fibre drums?


Optimal protection is vital for the safe storage and transportation of every product. Years of expertise have proven the extreme durability of FIBRE DRUMS, even in demanding conditions.



The materials used in the fibre drum industry to manufacture FIBRE DRUMS ensure that they are suitable for recycling.



FIBRE DRUMS are sturdy yet low in weight. In addition, FIBRE DRUMS excel in stackability. 


FIBRE DRUMS are manufactured in various diameters, sizes and shapes with or without UN approval.
