Granger Plastics offers the highest quality Air Cargo Containers in the industry. By providing this high quality teamed with durable, rotationally molded construction, Granger's ULD Containers offer the lowest cost of ownership amongst most comparable containers. Reduce maintenance, fuel burn and down time while increasing operations efficiencies with Granger's Air Cargo Containers.
Granger's innovative single piece polymer shell construction reduces maintenance costs. The polyethylene based body is weldable, which allows for faster, easier repairs while being more resilient to damage than traditional aluminum or polycarbonate units. The polymer construction also features UV protectant additives which protect from the sun's UV rays, which deteriorate polycarbonate ULD containers.
Via the Rotational Molding process, Granger's ULD Containers offer reduced maintenance with positive results from over 20 years of history. The results show improved impact resistanc, durability and lowest total cost of ownership. Increase your return on investment with your containers in service, rather than constantly being repaired.
Lower your fuel consumption and carbon credits with Granger Aerospace's Air Cargo Containers that offer lighter tare weights amongst most competing containers. Granger's LD 2, LD 3 and LD 8 units offer lighter tare weights than most of the industry competition. Reduce fuel consumption and carbon credit expenses with Granger Aerospace's Air Cargo Containers.
Unlike polycarbonate containers which have been at the forefront of a number of crash investigations, Granger's Air Cargo Units feature Polyethylene shells. Unlike units built from Polycarbonate panels, Polyethylene doest not emit hazardous or toxic fumes.
With nearly 20 years of custom Air Cargo Container manufacturing experience, Granger Plastics customers demanded a line of standard ULD Containers, such as the LD 2, LD 3 and LD 8 variants. With the belief of continual improvements, Granger Industries decided to launch Granger Aerospace, specicifically to focus on its growing Aerospace and Defense demands. Granger Aerospace also offers a line of proprietary ULD Containers, such as the LD 2, LD 3 and LD 8 models. All of Granger Aerospaces Air Cargo Containers are offered in both standard and forkliftable models.
Both Granger's LD 2 and LD 8 ULD Container models are built to AS 1677 standards. The LD 3 containers by Granger Aerospace however are built under Granger's highly lauded TSO C90d Authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Rotationally molded items require a mold or a tool to produce. While prototypes can be easily mapped out using a variety of processes, production projects must have tooling designed and produced to materialize. Tooling varies greatly in cost and time to produce before manufacturing can begin. Contact Granger Plastics for a complete quote including tooling costs.
Design for rotational molding requires knowledge of the process and its many variables. The nature of this application requires certain design elements to be implemented in order to produce the most reliable parts. Granger Plastics Company leads the industry in groundbreaking innovation in rotomolding design.
