Stretch Hood

A stretch hood is a tube of film sealed on one end, which is stretched over a palletized load to secure the contents to the pallet. The film is cut to the appropriate length, heat sealed on the top end, and gathered on four 'fingers.' These fingers stretch the film in the horizontal (transverse) direction then draw the stretched film down over the pallet. By varying the unrolling rate, a degree of stretch can be obtained to better hold the load on the pallet. At the bottom of the pallet, the fingers release the film, which typically wraps under the pallet bottom.

Stretch hood film from Sepaş gives you:

  • Waterproof pallet cover giving dust, rain and UV protection
  • Film remains flexible, maintaining tension which provides tight package and holds load onto pallet
  • Clear film allows your product to be displayed and barcode to be scanned through film 
  • Weatherproof protection suitable for outside storage
  • Continuous uninterrupted production - one reel of film wraps 500-800 pallets, so minimal loss of output due to film changeovers
  • Low fixed cost of film per pallet – no wastage
  • Low energy consumption – no heating required, no hazard
  • Flexible – self adjusting for different height pallets
  • Excellent branding of palletized load with printed film
  • Film easily removed by your customer or retailer – use of recyclable film
  • Cost effective alternative to spiral stretch or shrink wrapping
  • Quite simply the perfect way to wrap your pallets

Stretch hooding benefits at a glance compared with stretch wrapping:

  • Increased load stability due to vertical film forces
  • Product ventilation and printing of film possible
  • Well suited for AGV or automated high-rack systems
  • First class weather protection from 5 or 6 sides
  • Up to 10 times fewer film replacements increase system availability and minimize operator interaction
  • Absolutely clear film improves product presentation and brand recognition at point-of-sale or in transit and positively impacts consumer buying behavior
  • High capacities of up to 100 pallets per hour possible
  • Outstanding bar code readability due to no overlaying film bands
  • Precise budgeting due to exact film consumption
  • Fully recyclable film

Stretch hooding benefits at a glance compared with shrink hooding:

  • Increased load stability due to vertical film forces
  • No heating of film - reduces the risk of fire and potentially minimizes insurance rates
  • Reduction of environmental stress due to over 30% less film and >90% energy savings
  • Higher flexibility of handling various product sizes
  • Sound level < 75 db (A)
  • Reduced maintenance
  • High capacities of up to 100 pallets per hour possible
  • Choice of operating with 5- or 6-sided protection against external impacts
  • No additional cooling system for ambient temperature required
  • No lamination between primary packaging and /or product with transport packaging film
  • Fully recyclable film
