A modular way of packing
When modules are ready to be shipped out to onsite, it is already too late to ask…
Step 1: your project
Step 2: your contacts
Step 3: your calculation
After entering the maximum dimensions and quantity of the rectangular module and the correct contact details, you will find a quote in your mailbox.
Please note! The manufactured bag will be a little bit bigger, than your maximum dimensions for ease of installation (bag should be heated after installation to shrink tightly around the module).
Please note! Unknown roof inclinations, eaves or similar can increase the dimensions. To get a more specific quotations or quotation about other shapes and more different dimensions etc. send your information to sales@PackModule.com.
Using the HEAT³ EasyPack™ solution improves the inventory records, material planning and material-related working capital for packaging materials needed in production.
Standard packaging is 3-5 times lighter in weight than PVC coverings, which eliminates the need for the mechanised lifting of packaging when packaging most modules and the possible health concerns of packers that may arise during the installation of other heavier packaging. The use of lighter packaging creates a safer working environment.
The standard HEAT³ EasyPack™ heat-shrinkable bag with a thickness of 180 mic (7 Mil) 1 m² weighs approx. 165 g.
E.g: 10 m (L) x 3 m (W) x 3 m (H) package weight approx. 16.5 kg.
Polyethylene (PE) is environmentally friendly if used responsibly. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IGNORANT USERS ARE NOT ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – most users have access to recycling; the problem is the will and lack of empathy …
The HEAT³ EasyPack™ is made only from the highest quality 100% virgin premium LDPE (low-density polyethylene) heat shrink film on the market, which belongs to the #4 plastic resin group LDPE. Plastic #4 (LDPE) and the HEAT³ EasyPack™ are recyclable. Commonly, resins such as LDPE, HDPE, PET and PP are recyclable (so #1, #2, #4 and #5), LDPE being one of the easiest to process and recycle. LDPE is considered less toxic than other plastics and safe for use. When recycled, LDPE plastic is used for plastic lumber, landscaping boards, rubbish bin liners, floor tiles, etc.
The resins that are not typically recyclable are PVC (Plastic #3), PS – Polystyrene (Plastic #6) and OTHER (Plastic #7)
Using the HEAT³ EasyPack™, you provide your input to sustainability and nature preservation:
Using lighter packaging (such as the HEAT³ EasyPack™) to pack our products, we preserve nature and reduce CO² emissions, fuel consumption and the volume and weight of waste. According to a study conducted in the USA , the use of plastic packaging has a significantly smaller footprint on our environment than alternatives. For example, at comparable values, the use of plastic packaging instead of alternative packaging during the lifetime of packaging will result in the use of significantly less water, the generation of only a fifth of the weight of waste, a twofold reduction in the potential global warming and so on.
The decoupling effect has demonstrated that plastics play a role in helping reduce waste and improve environmental sustainability over time, even as consumer spending habits have increased.
HEAT3 does its best to educate its customers on sending used packaging to a local recyclable material collection point after use. LDPE is usually accepted free of charge, but in many countries recycling drop-off centres also pay for the quantities of clean film received (in this case, the film must be clean and materials of any other categories must be removed). If the film removed from the module is cut into panes, the panes must be placed on top of one another and rolled up. It is then easy to collect, as it does not take up much space this way.
Please check your local recycling drop-off centre’s acceptance policies and conditions.
When packaging with HEAT³ EasyPack™ packaging, the minimum footprint of your activities is left to nature because:
Nature (especially oceans) is harmed by the accumulation of microplastics, which also reach fish, birds, animals and humans. It is easy to throw small amounts into nature so that nobody notices, but it is much more difficult to get rid of packaging for modular houses in an improper manner. Due to the size and quantity of the packaging it is easier for the user to arrange for LDPE to be sent to recycling companies than it is to hide it, and if the conditions are met, even earn a refund by giving it away.
To separate and collect the used film, we recommend using the same FIBC (flexible intermediate bulk container) Big-Bag (Big-Bags are made out of PP, which is also recyclable), in which the ordered HEAT³ EasyPack™ packaging is sent to you. This way:
