What is the Silver Shield 24?
Silver Shield 24 has been developed with the primary aim to be an easy assembly, simple, lightweight, low storage impact and low-cost thermal shipping system, aimed primarily (but not limited to: pharmacies and contract packers shipping temperature sensitive products within a defined 24hr transit network.
How Does Silver Shield Work?
Silver Shield is a simple system, providing the user with a leak resistant outer ‘Silver Shield’ sandwiched between a foil based MPET (metallised film) laminate, both inside & out. The outer ‘Silver Shield’ has been created using heavy grade Double Bubble LDPE trapped air bubbles. These, alongside the MPET laminate, provide an extraordinary level of protection through energy reflection (emissivity) and insulation (trapped air bubbles).
Users simply need to place their products inside an additionally supplied Silver Shield which has apertures designed within, allowing for appropriate air flow to occur and thus enhancing the cold chain solution.
Pre-frozen Pharmapac® Grade 750g Ice Packs should then be proportionately placed on top of the inner shield containing the products. The system can then be neatly closed and sealed using the self-seal closure system. Please note that these are the only ice packs that should be used with this system.
How does Silver Shield Perform?
We have ensured that all of our Pharmapac® packaging systems will protect your temperature sensitive products in the very worst-case transit scenarios, ensuring your assets arrive, without deviation, at the correct temperature window of +2˚c to +8˚c degrees within a minimum 24hr transit time.
The Pharmapac® range will be tested to constant temperature profiles (10˚c / 20˚c / 25˚c / 30˚c). The extreme testing format we have designed our products to withstand is set to become legislation.
Silver Shield 24 Size Options
Silver Shield 24 is available in 3 standard box sizes. All of these comprise of a double strength white corrugated box (with safe handling safety symbols printed on the short side), an outer Silver Shield and an inner Silver Shield for asset protection (Pharmapac® Gel Ice Packs can be purchased separately).
- Box 101 – ID: 350 x 190 x 100mm
- Box 02 – ID: 400 x 270 x 160mm
- Box 06 – ID: 400 x 270 x 260mm
How Many Pharmapac® Gel Ice Packs do I need?
It is important that only Pharmapac® 750g Ice Packs are used with the Silver Shield 24 Range. This is because of our unique production methods, whereby our ice packs are produced in a compact form to provide a more stable and prolonged energy release and absorption rate.
These are manufactured using pure filtered and UV treated water alongside a leading Gel formula and encased in a blue high grade puncture resistant film. Nobody makes Ice Packs like Hydropac®!
Based on our extensive testing, we have created the following chart for help determining how many Pharmapac® 750g Ice Packs users will need to use with the Silver Shield 24 system. The final number will depend on the box size and desired temperature to maintain.
