HOW TO MEASURE

MEASURING FOR A BOX LINING

  • Measure the width, depth, and height of the box to be lined. The depth is the shortest side.
  • Add 1" to the width and depth of the box to determine the width and depth of the bag
  • For the Length (L) of the bag add the depth + Height + 7 inches. 

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"

 

MEASURING FOR A ROUND CONTAINER

  • Measure the diameter and height of the container to be lined.
  • To determine the Circumference (C) of the container, multiply the diameter by 3.14.
  • To determine the Width (W) of the bag, divide the Circumference (C) by 2. Add 1" for a looser fit. 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"

 

MEASURING FOR A SQUARE CONTAINER

  • Measure the width, depth, and height of the container to be lined. The depth is the shortest side.
  • To determine the Width (W) of the bag, add the width of container + depth of container + 2" for a looser fit.
  • To determine the Length (L) of the bag, add 1/2 the depth to the height. Add 5" for overhang.

Example: If the container size is 14" (wide) x 10" (deep) x 32" (high), the bag dimensions are as follows: Width (W) is 26" length (L) is 42"

 

HOW TO MEASURE FOR GUSSETED BAGS

The dimensions for re-closable bags are based on the outside dimensions from side to side and from the bottom of the zipper to the bottom of the bag.

 

MEASURING FOR A PALLET COVER

  • Measure the width, depth, and height of the pallet to be covered. (The depth is the shortest side).
  • Add 2" to the width and the depth (W) of the pallet for the size of the cover
  • The Length (L) of the cover is determined by adding ½ of the depth to the height.

Example: If the pallet size is 40" (wide) x 36" (deep) x 50" (high), the cover dimensions should be: Width (W) is 42" Depth (D) is 38" Length (L) is 68"
