About Ripp ‘n’ Flow sacks

Flexipol design Ripp ‘n’ Flow sacks provide a safe and hygienic solution to the challenges associated with paper and other poly sacks during material handling. The Ripp ‘n’ Flow’s easy-open sack system allows fast and simple product decanting, as well as eliminating the health and safety and contamination risks associated with using knives to cut open a sack. 

These high quality, 100% recyclable, food grade, easy-open sacks are used by food manufacturers including processors of breadcrumbs, batter, sauce powders, coatings, egg powder, pasta, flavourings, minerals, ingredients, herbs, spices, aggregates, powder, cement, minerals, chemicals, sand and salt.

Ripp ‘n’ Flow and Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2.

The easy open design can be placed at the top of the bag on our Ripp ‘n’ Flow sacks, but it can also be placed anywhere along the bag with our innovative Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2 design.  

With the same easy-open sack system, the Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2 sack features all of the benefits of Ripp ‘n’ Flow, with the added option for the strip to be positioned anywhere along the bag, allowing the product to flow from either side. This speeds up the emptying process by 50%. 

Plastic vs paper sacks.

Proven to be more hygienic than paper alternatives, our bespoke Ripp ‘n’ Flow and Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2 easy-open sacks are often critical to reducing potential infestation contaminants, especially in warmer climates. Designed with a unique film blend specifically for this application, these innovative sacks are 100% food grade and BRC approved to an AA standard. 

Each Ripp ‘n’ Flow and Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2 sack is available in a stand-up format, thanks to our block bottom design. This enables efficient filling, easy palletisation and reduced slippage. In addition, it eliminates polythene entrapment and reduces product loss. 

We can also include recycled content.

We can include up to 30% recycled content whilst maintaining functional performance. In addition, Flexipol can manufacture them featuring a black inner, white outer for increased UV protection.  

All of our Ripp ‘n’ Flow and Ripp ‘n’ Flow 2 sacks are bespoke and manufactured to order. Our technical experts work with our customers to calculate a size and thickness perfect for your application and the volume of product you would like to pack.
