Stackable plastic totes or bins are made from high density synthetic resins specifically for the many types and styles necessary for various applications. Plastic totes are resistant to most chemicals and solvents. Most totes have handles for ease in moving and stacking when filled. Due to the ribbing designed into the filled tote, it maintains its sturdiness and rigidity when being moved. Plastic totes are able to be palletized and moved with a forklift, or conveniently maneuvered via a tote cart.
Plastic totes are designed to withstand a wide range of temperatures and still perform. Typically most totes are designed for stacking and nesting. An internal rib on both sides of the tote provides the bearing surface to rest the upper tote. Stacking can be achieved by moving the upper tote from the nesting position up then turning 180 degrees for stacking. Used plastic totes are an especially good value due to their longer life cycle and priced at over 50% less than new totes.
