Our Range Of Fibre Drums

Fibre drums offer a strong, versatile solution that’s suitable for storing and transporting a wide range of different goods. We think that our range of good value fibre drums might be perfect for your needs. Our fibre drums are made from virgin kraft paper (or sometimes referred to as fibreboard or cardboard) with a metal chimb that is fitted to both the top and bottom of the drum for extra strength.


Often used for packaging goods like powders, granules, pharmaceuticals and hazardous products, we supply our fibre drums with a fully removable plastic lid that not only 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 as standard but can, by request, be printed with logos, product information or hazard warnings. For peace of mind, our Fibre Drums as Group II UN approved as standard with Group I or III available be request.

Cardboard, Fibreboard, Kraft paper or Fibre?

Something we get asked a quite a lot is 'what is the material difference between each type of Fibre Drum', be it a cardboard, fibre or kraft. The simple answer is nothing! All of the above are different names for what the industry would collectively refer to as a Fibre Drum.


What is a Lockable Cardboard Shipping Barrel?

A Cardboard Shipping Barrel is another name given to what is more commonly known as a Fibre Drum. The metal lever closure at the top of the drum is locked in place making it suitable for shipping products. Made from recyclable material, although they can be used multiple times, they're also easily disposed of.  


Can Fibre Drum be stored outside?

Believe it or not, Fibre Drums can be stored outside, even in the rain! They have a moisture barrier to prevent degrading, yet are still fully recyclable within the usual cardboard recycling stream. These key factors make the weatherproof drums are a great alternative to plastic or steel drums.

However, please ensure you purchase a waterproof drum if storing outside.
