Hood & Spot Crating

Hood crating may be used as a packaging solution for material that is over dimensional or too heavy for a wood deck. It protects your product from theft and damage due to transportation.

Spot crating is also used for trucks or drivable machinery. This kind of crating utilizes hinged doors and sliding plywood windows to allow the product to be protected by a crate and still be drivable. This enables the product to be driven onto a flat bed truck for highway transport or even onto an ocean carrier for overseas transport.


Industrial poly gives your item protection from water, road contamination and harmful UV rays. This is a cost-effective way to ensure excellent protection from the elements.


VCI poly shrink wrap is your first line of defense versus rust and other corrosion. Shipping overseas? We can make the risks caused by saltwater and humidity a thing of the past thanks to the innovative, reliable advances of VCI poly. The proprietary shrink wrap gives off a vapour that eliminates the electrochemical reaction that causes rust. This revolutionary process is harmless, invisible and odourless, leaving no residue– your customers will enjoy dry, clean product or material no matter where they are!

Specific transportation, storage and climate conditions may require more than the baseline protection of VCI poly shrink wrap. Cratex Industries Ltd. maintains a cutting edge selection of sprays, coatings and other treatments that can help enhance or maintain the stability of your shipped items.
