  • Steel drums - Commonly used throughout plants and factories in various industries across the UK, steel drums are versatile with a number of potential uses. We sell a few different varieties of stainless steel drums here at ITP Packing, including open-top steel drums, closed top tight head steel drums and steel drums with bottom discharge. Steel drums can be used for bulk storage over long periods of time, transport of goods, waste collection and much more. Our steel drums are UN approved to safely contain both liquid and solid materials and are internally lacquer lined. Made from strong steel, steel drums are often used to contain and transport hazardous materials. 


  • Plastic drums - Also known as poly drums, one of the most popular solutions for storing and transporting liquids is certainly the classic blue plastic drum. Industrial plastic drums can be seen across the globe and are one of the most commonly used storing, packaging and transporting solutions. Made from tough rigid plastic, these drums can last for a long time and can be sealed incredibly well. This means that they are often used to transport oils, juices, food flavourings and colourings, sauces and other liquids. We supply both open top plastic drums and tight head plastic drums here at ITP, all available in a number of different sizes. While most often used in the food industry, our plastic containers are all UN approved making them suitable for the transport and storage of hazardous materials such as chemicals and detergents. 


  • Fibre drums - Need a strong, versatile drum solution that’s suitable for storing and transporting a wide range of different goods? We think that our range of amazing value fibre drums might be perfect for your needs. Our fibre drums are made from Virgin Kraft paper with a metal rolling chimb that is fitted to both the top and bottom of the drum for extra strength. Often used for packaging goods like powders, pharmaceuticals and battery packs, we supply our fibre drums with a full cover plastic lid that not only fully secures you drum with a metal lever closing ring, but also allows the drums to be stacked if you’re using a number of them for storage. All drums come with a blank exterior by default, but can at request be printed with logos, information or hazard warnings. 


  • Intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) - New to our range of drums and storage containers is the fantastically reliable, durable and versatile intermediate bulk container (IBC). Our 100ltr IBCs are perfect if you want to safely transport and store liquid goods in bulk. They are stackable and can be mounted on a pallet, making them easy to move with a forklift and amazingly convenient when kept in warehouses and other storage facilities. All our IBCs are UN approved for safely transporting both liquids and hazardous materials. We also store a range of IBC covers to make the most of your IBC and to better protect its content. If you need to store or transport a lot of liquid in bulk, you can’t go far wrong with our IBCs.
