Why should I buy Rainbow Trugs?

We are passionate about Rainbow Trugs and work extensively to design and manufacture exceptional quality products for our customers. With their thicker sidewalls and base together with handles specifically designed for strength, Rainbow Trugs are a durable product like no other.

Rainbow Trugs are:

  • Made in the United Kingdom
  • Free from Phthalates and other harmful chemicals
  • Made from 100% Food Grade material
  • Frost and UV Resistant
  • Independently Tested Handle Strength
  • Flexible yet Very, Very Strong
  • Recyclable
  • Able to be nested or stacked within each other

We manufacture our Rainbow Trugs with premium quality low density polyethylene which complies with all EU and US (FDA) manufacturing standards.

Rainbow Trugs have STRONG and ERGONOMIC handles, designed to be comfortable whilst carrying heavy loads. The embossed scale inside our 14, 30 and 45 Litre trugs is a helpful addition when the need arises.


Handle Strength Test Results

Handles are the main working part of a trug and so when it came to designing our Rainbow Trugs, we spent a lot of time to ensure they were as strong as we could possibly make them. In August 2021 we sent every size of Rainbow Trug to an independent product testing laboratory for handle weight tests and the results were amazing. The picture shown here is one of our 30 litre trugs undergoing the test and the chart shows the maximum load taken by the two handles before the trug broke.
