We at Murphy & Son Ltd are proud to announce a new design of layer broad, produced in collaboration with Hallam Plastics; the M&H Layer Board. Our design is more durable, weather resistant, safe and strong.
Layer boards are a staple in every brewery and used throughout the supply line. They’re not, however, without their bugbears; prone to cracking in frosty conditions, warping under heavy use and collecting rainwater (a cold shower every brewer has begrudgingly suffered once). So at Murphy & Son we thought it about time someone reinvented the wheel.
As with every Murphy product, our Layer Board is designed with the brewer and brewery in mind.
It’s compatible with numerous automated systems and manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a superior non-brittle plastic that won’t crack or split in sub-zero temperatures and is impact resistant. Manufactured using engineered structural foam (ESF), the board boasts a high strength to weight ratio, compared to conventional injection moulding techniques. Plus, we’ve even added a simple drainage system so rainwater can no longer collect. HDPE is stronger, more durable, more rigid and more resistant to the sunlight’s UV rays than conventional polypropylene, ensuring safer loading and unloading for draymen and fewer breakages.
The board’s superior manufacture is coupled with business acumen. It’s 100% recyclable and returnable for supply chain cost effectiveness. Plus, our boards can be customised; available in a range of colours and with the option to add a logo. A radio-frequency identification tag facility is also available upon request, to enable accurate tracking, deter theft and enhance security. We’ve left no stone unturned.
