Other Bag Size Considerations

Finding the right sized bag can be a bit of a challenge. We’ve broken down the formula, so you order the correct size material every time! Sizing them up, down and every which way. Here are four simple formulas to ensure you get the right fit.

Square Container to Gusseted Bag

1. Measure the width, depth and height of the box to be lined. The depth should be the shorterside.
2. To determine the Width (W) of the bag, add ‘1’ to the width of the box.
3. To determine the Depth (D) of the bag, add ‘1’ to the depth of the box.
4. The Length (L) of the bag is determined by adding the depth to the height of the box plus ‘6’ toallow coverage of the box contents.
Example
If the box size is 20″(wide) x 14″(deep) x 16″(high), the bag dimensions are as follows: Width(W) is 21″ Depth (D) is 15″ Length (L) is 36″

Pallet Cover to Gusseted Bag

1. Measure the width, depth and height of the pallet to be covered. The depth should be theshorter side.
2. To determine the Width (W) of the cover, add ‘1’ to ‘2’ to the width of the pallet.
3. To determine the Depth (D) of the cover, add ‘1’ to ‘2’ to the depth of the pallet.
4. The Length (L) of the cover is determined by adding 1/2 the depth to the height.
Example
If the pallet size is 30″(wide) x 26″(deep) x 40″(high), the cover dimensions are as follows: Width(W) is 32″ Depth (D) is 28″ Length (L) is 53″

Rounded Container to Layflat Bag

1. Measure the diameter and height of the container to be lined.
2. To determine the Circumference (C) of the container, multiply the diameter by 3.14.
3. To determine the Width (W) of the bag, divide the Circumference (C) by 2. Add ‘1’ for a looserfit.
4. To determine the Length (L) of the bag, add the diameter to the height. Add ‘5’ for overhang.
Example
If the container size is 14″(diameter) x 32″(height), the bag dimensions are as follows:Width (W) is 23″ Length (L) is 51″

Square Container to Layflat Bag

1. Measure the width, depth and height of the container to be lined. The depth should be theshorter side.
2. To determine the Width (W) of the bag, add the width and depth. For relaxed fit, add ‘2’ The Length (L) of the bag is determined by adding the depth to the height of the box plus ‘6’ toallow coverage of the box contents.
Example
If the container size is 12″(wide) x 8″(deep) x 30″(high), the bag dimensions are as follows:Width (W) is 22″ Length (L) is 44″
