Flat bags - for secure and universal packaging

We recently covered the topic of ziplock bags in our blog. But not all plastic bags have a zip closure. Flat bags are bags that are open on one side, i.e. without a closure. And depending on your products, this type of packaging can prove beneficial for your business. This will be explained in more detail below.

What are the properties of flat bags? 

The advantages of flat bags include:

- Easy filling of the bags 

- Space-saving storage thanks to the flat shape 

- Protection of your items from dirt, moisture and corrosion  

- Strong sales presence thanks to transparent film

What applications are they suitable for? 

Stores can use this type of packaging to store smaller quantities of goods, for example. This can be particularly practical if they do not have enough space on their display and appreciate minimalist product packaging that protects the goods while taking up as little space as possible. After all, the less space required for packaging, the larger and more varied the product range can be in stationary retail.

Why should you use a flat bag instead of a ziplock bag? 

If you offer a product that needs to be sold sealed (as is often the case with food), then the flat pouch is the right packaging. 

However, if you need packaging that can be opened and closed at will, you should turn to the ziplock bag.

You need a film sealer for this. With this accessory, you can seal a flat bag perfectly in just a few seconds. It is very easy to use and allows you to quickly ensure perfect packaging.  

How does it work? The membrane is sealed by impulse, for example by pressing on the sealing arm. Handling is simple: you position the material on the lower spacer bar and press the lever arm down.
