Stretch Film

Ask us a question!

Load containment is the most critical aspect of protecting our customers’ products — from manufacturing site to eventual destination. The cost of product damage during transportation is far too great for any business. Understanding the best ways to evaluate stretch-film products and training your teams on stretch-film application is critical to the handling, safety and transportation process.

Bulk Lift has the best product specialist to educate our customers on the proper selection of high-quality stretch films and the environments that warrant a specific film grade.

Film Gauge Calculator

If you are unsure of a film’s gauge you can use this tool to determine the approximate gauge. Cut a sample of the film. 20 feet or more is recommended for better resolution.


Please enter inches and feet in decimal units. Measuring weight with equipment capable of displaying hundredths of an ounce will give you a much better estimate of gauge than a scale that only shows tenths. And the more accurate your length, the better your results will be. This calculator will distinguish a 63 gauge from an 80 gauge but may not be able to identify a 79 gauge versus an 80 gauge.
