Plastic Top Frame

Top Frame (Full Center Stringers)

 

Top Frame (No Center Stringer)

CORBI top frames protect your product during storage and transport by unitizing full pallet loads of beverage products, aluminum and steel cans, glass and plastic bottles, and other rigid packaging.

They are available in three versions for versatility:

  • No Center Stringer
  • Single Center Stringer
  • Full Center Stringer

When combined with plastic pallets, these 44” x 56” top frames securely stabilize loads of product. The 4” or 6” wide perimeter frame provides superior support for many types of product loads.

The channeled edge design and structural foam injection molded construction offers exceptional strapping strength. These top frames can be used with a temperature range of -20°C to 55°C (-4°F to 130°F).

For decades, wooden top frames have been used to stabilize the distribution of bulk containers such as glass or plastic bottles and metal cans. In their wake, however, wooden top frames have left unsanitary debris and high replacement costs. CORBI now offers injection molded plastic top frames that provide clear advantages over both wooden and other plastic designs. The patented CORBI Top Frame features a solid four-sided, box beam design with encapsulated ribs that eliminate dirt traps thereby addressing one of the filling industry's biggest concerns, that of bringing hazardous debris into the filling line. Our narrow 1.0 in. (25.4mm) thickness eases trailer loading and unloading and ensures maximum height unit loads. Greater stability, cleanliness, maximum load-outs, and lower replacement costs are benefits available to container manufacturers and fillers alike when they use CORBI Top Frames.

Additional Benefits

Solid Construction
Fully enclosed construction eliminates moisture and debris contamination traps.

Reversible Orientation
Frame is symmetrical so it can be placed on load on either side.

Lightweight
Ergonomic handling makes our product easier on employees for manual loading applications.

Chamfered Edges
Eliminates strapping breakages and distributes strapping tension evenly along product to eliminate top frame damage.

Box Beam Welded Concept
Technology joins two pieces of plastic that ultimately creates a part with a superior strength to weight ratio than any other product.

Low Part Height
Our one-inch part height allows for increased clearance when loading trucks and will enable you to store more in a stack.

Reinforced Frame Inserts
Minimizes deflection associated with high strapping tensions and allows us to achieve such a low part profile.

High Pressure Injection Molded
Reliable process that is dimensionally accurate from part to part and ultimately will work better in automated systems.

High Impact Polypropylene
Material has superior impact properties, excellent high temperature characteristics, elastic material retains its shape easily, and our UV stabilizer protects against harmful rays that chemically alter the resin.

Custom Scuffed Texture
Approaches the coefficient of friction of wood for non-skid applications or when placing under pallets for warehouse handling.

Rounded Corners
Allows for quicker loading procedures when pin wheeling trucks, handling finished goods, and its geometry matches that of existing plastic pallets.
