GreenCask

A new development for the Real Ale Industry, Global Polymer Solutions brings you a range of lightweight casks using a registered design that fulfils all industry requirements. Each cask is individually numbered giving absolute traceability.

Our manufacturing process is unique to the brewing industry. The robust construction of the cask is such that subject to proper usage, they should exceed the industry life expectancy of seven years.

Steel vs Plastics

In this day and age, when the modern motor car is more than 50% plastic, it is still possible to overlook the strength, toughness and longevity that plastic can offer in place of steel. The many benefits of the plastic used in our barrels are:
  • The impact resistance is such that kegs and casks can be dropped from 2m or more without breaking and, more importantly, without permanent denting- no gradual loss in volume.
  • They are lighter and more easily handled when empty.
  • Over hundreds of trips, they save significantly on diesel usage.
  • Their recycling footprint is very small.
  • When full, they can be used like steel but they are much, quieter – pubs and hotels in residential areas will appreciate the difference.
