Safety Aspects and Advantages of DuraFlex Plastic Lids


  • DuraFlex lids are up to 4 times lighter than metal lids, thereby considerably reducing the risk of accidents to waste operatives and members of the public.


  • The lightweight construction of DuraFlex lids, made from high-grade UV-stabilised polyethylene, gives the same stability as heavier metal lids.


  • The customised shape of the lid in relation to the profile of the container results in a significant level of noise reduction.


  • A high degree of flexibility, adaptability to everyday use and impact resistance characterizes DuraFlex lids.


  • DuraFlex lids are impervious to water and climatic influences. They are maintenance-free and fundamentally easier to replace when damaged.


  • A rotomoulded DuraFlex lid can be bent or crushed several times and still revert to its original shape. Once bent, steel stays bent!


  • The uncomplicated mounting of DuraFlex lids without any pre-fabrication or corrosion protection saves container builders much time and money.


  • The use of DuraFlex lids has eliminated serious, and in extreme cases even fatal accidents caused by the failure of welds and springs.


  • DuraFlex lids are quieter in operation than metal lids and single-walled lids.
