5.0 Gallon (20 Liter) Bottled Water Crate, Model BW-5

The Rehrig Pacific BW-5 Bottled Water Crate is designed to handle 5 gallon (20 liter) plastic water bottles. We originated the top steel ring design to give the crates strength to withstand the tremendous top load in stacking, as well as the repeated trips through today’s automatic bottling plants. Steel ring reinforcement eliminates the problems caused by cracked corners, prevents bowing, and keeps top dimensions true for automated equipment and route trucks.

The Bottled Water Crate is injection molded from strong, resilient high density polyethylene. Ultra-violet stabilizers are added to prevent brittleness caused by exposure to sunlight. The open grid work design affords excellent product visibility and drainage.


External Dimensions (L × W × H):
11.875" × 11.875" × 15.813" (30.2 cm × 30.2 cm × 40.2 cm)
Internal Dimensions (L × W × H):
10.750" × 10.750" × 14.813" (27.3 cm × 27.3 cm × 37.6 cm)
