- Valencia containers
Valencia containers will take loads of up to 176 lbs (at 5°C (40°F), for 3 - 6 days) and fit on pallets measuring 40 x 48 inch, 31.5 x 48 inch and 23.6 x 31.5 inch and on (Danish) trolleys. Valencia containers are available in two heights to suit flowers with different stem lengths. They can be used in combination with the Valencia top frame to add 25 cm to the height of the container.

Like all Procona packaging the Valencia containers have matching straight collars available in a range of heights and in both cardboard and plastic. The collars are so strong that Valencia containers full of flowers can be stacked up to a height of 94.5 inch, even when in chilled transport for a long time. Valencia containers and lids are suitable for both single and repeated use.

Valencia 25 with closed hand grips
Valencia containers with closed hand grips and ventilation grills were developed for exporting cut flowers from the Netherlands to Japan. The stringent import stipulations specified by the Japanese Plant Protection Service in the Netherlands demand that after being checked products must be transported in sealed packaging. Which is why the hand grips are closed.
The additional insulation provided by closed containers make them a very practical solution in regions where heavy frosts are probable. The top-frame cannot be used with closed containers.
