Semi-rigid drum covers have the advantage of being able to snap over the rim of the drum, thereby creating a more robust way of protecting whatever is inside. Semi-rigid drum covers provide a perfect solution when it comes to storing the drums outside, as they are weatherproof and give an extra barrier of protection in a dirty environment. The durable polythene material, from which these covers are made also protects from UV rays. 

The alternative to semi-rigid drums is elasticated. These are lower in price and are ideal in a less demanding environment. Semi-rigid drum covers are also an affordable way of protecting drums from contamination when left open. 


The design of our snap-on drum lids is ideal for use on open-top steel drums. Made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE), they are rigid enough to provide reliable protection without risk of splits, cracks or falling off. 


The semi-rigid nature of these covers means that they can be used repeatedly by snapping them on and off each time, without fear of compromising the drum content. The drum lids work equally well in an indoor or external environment. Outside, the tight-fitting design can cope with high winds and extreme weather conditions. In terms of suitability, the lids snap-over 210-litre drums, which can either be tight head steel drums or open-top steel drums. We sell them in packs of five and discounts are available for larger quantities.
