Types of Bags

Bags measurements are typically width W x length L and could be Bottom Seal or Side Seal. There are variations that provide different functionalities for multiple applications:

Side Gusseted Bag:

A Side Gusseted Bag is a plastic bag with a triangle shaped pleat on both sides of the bag. These gussets allow the bag to expand out, giving more room for bulky, big or square items. The gusset is considered to be the depth of the bag. For example a 10" x 4" x 12" bag would be 10 inches wide by 4 inches deep by 12 inches long.

 

PTO Bags on Rolls:

Bags on a Roll Also described as Perforated Tear Off (PTO) are bags that are wound on 3" diameter core. They come in 2 varieties: Open-End first or Sealed-End first. By default we produce bags Open-End first.

Side Weld Bags

Side Seal Bags are bags that have the seals on the side instead of the bottom. They are measured width x length (both in inches).

Wicketed/Staple Pack Bags

Wicketed/Staple Pack Bags are bags that are held together by either a wire wicket or a cardboard header Staple Pack. This type of bag is measured the same as a regular Side Weld Bag but adding the Lip measurement. Staple pack bags have a perforated lip.

Zipper Bags

Reclosable Bags (also called Ziplock Bags) are closed at the top by the zipper.

Tubing

Tubing is measured width W (in inches) by length L (in feet). Tubing can also be perforated at specific intervals, without seals. This perforated tubing is called sleeves.

Gusseted tubing

Gusseted tubing is tubing with pleats on each side allowing the tubing to expand beyond its layflat width. The gusset is considered to be the depth of the tube. For example a 20" x 8" x 1000' tube would be 20 inches wide by 8 inches deep by 1,000 feet long.

Sheeting

Single Wound Sheeting (SWS) is sheeting wound up as a single layer. These must be ordered in even numbers (10 rolls, 20 Rolls, 80 Rolls...) Sheeting is measured width (in inches) x length (in feet) .This can also be ordered as PTO sheets (measured width in inches by length in inches)

Double Wound Sheeting (DWS)

Double Wound Sheeting (DWS) is sheeting wound up 2 layers thick on a roll. Sheeting is measured width x length. The width is in Inches and the length is in feet.

SOE Sheeting

SOE (Slit on Edge) Sheeting or C-Fold Sheeting is sheeting that is folded in half and wound up on a roll. It is measured width (in inches) x length (in feet). For example 12" x 100' C-Fold Sheeting will open up to a sheet that is 20" x 1,000' Sheeting. This can also be ordered as PTO SOE Sheets (measured width in inches by length in inches).
