Tru-Form Plastics, a supplier of thermoformed plastics, announced the availability of the Roll Stop™ roll cradle for the safe transport of circular and cylindrical products.

Designed for a standard 48” x 48” pallet, the Roll Stop uses a unique interlocking system to keep layers from sliding during packaging and stacking. The Roll Stop is made from 100% recycled polyester (rPET) and unlike pulp-based cradles, is weather-proof, durable, and can be reliably used to transport rolled products throughout a distribution network from manufacturers to national and regional distributors to end customers.

“Safety is our first priority,” said Jim Goode, president, and CEO at Tru-Form Plastics. “We are pleased to offer our customers a superior roll cradle product that keeps packages from moving or falling during transport, keeping your employees and your products safe from load shifting.”

The Roll Stop can withstand up to 2400 pounds and holds up to four 10–12-inch diameter rolls per layer. The reversible design allows for roll protection above and below the roll and is safer than pyramid stacking. Because rolled goods can be stacked on pallets to the height of the truck trailer or shipping container, the Roll Stop reduces outbound freight costs. In addition, stacking with Roll Stop takes up less floor space than other packing materials including foam. When not in use, the nesting design allows for minimal storage space utilization. Appropriate for use with plastic film, metallic film, textiles, and more, the Roll Stop is available in quantities of 100 and up.
