Fiber drums come in two variants: all fiber drums and lock-rim fiber drums. These drums are lightweight and are usually used in industries to store or contain various products. The Lock-rim fiber drums feature an open top. This encourages quick filling and dispensing of products, thus, making them suitable for solid, liquid, semi-liquid products. All-fiber drums made of fiber only and offer an excellent solution for the storage and transportation of products.
