Measuring Bags

Get the right size bag for your applications. Here’s how.

For Lining a Box
1) Measure the width, depth and height of the box to be lined. The depth should be the shorter side.

2) To determine the Width (W) of the bag, add 1″ to the width of
the box.

3) To determine the Depth (D) of the bag, add 1″ to the depth
of the box.

4) The Length (L) of the bag is determined by adding the depth
to the height of the box plus 6″ to allow coverage of the box contents.

Example: If the box size is 18″(wide) x 12″(deep) x 14″(high), the bag dimensions are as follows: Width (W) is 19″                                                          Depth (D) is 13″ Length (L) is 33″

For a Pallet Cover
1) Measure the width, depth and height of the pallet to be
covered. The depth should be the shorter side.

2) To determine the Width (W) of the cover, add 1″-2″ to the
width of the pallet.

3) To determine the Depth (D) of the cover, add 1″-2″ to the
depth of the pallet.

4) The Length (L) of the cover is determined by adding 1/2 the
depth to the height.                                                                                                                                                 Example: If the pallet size is 40″(wide) x 36″(deep) x 50″(high), the cover dimensions are as follows: Width (W) is 42″                                                    Depth (D) is 38″ Length (L) is 68″

For a Round Container
1) Measure the diameter and height of the container to be lined.

2) To determine the Circumference (C) of the container, multiply
the diameter by 3.14.

3) To determine the Width (W) of the bag, divide the
Circumference (C) by 2. Add 1″ for a looser fit.

4) To determine the Length (L) of the bag, add the diameter
to the height. Add 5″ for overhang.

Example: If the container size is 12″(diameter) x 30″(height), the bag dimensions are as follows: Width (W) is 20″                                                           Length (L) is 47″

For a Square Container
1) Measure the width, depth and height of the container to be lined.
The depth should be the shorter side.

2) To determine the Width (W) of the bag, add the width and depth.
Add 2″ for a looser fit.

3) To determine the Length (L) of the bag, add 1/2 the depth to the
