55 Gallon Drum Dimensions

Occasionally we get questions as to our 55 gallon drum dimensions.  The dimensions vary from drum to drum.  In the description of each drum we try to include this information so that by clicking on the product page you will be able to see pricing, dimensions, material type, whether the drum is open top or closed top and whether the drum is lined or unlined (steel).  This page will give a quick overview of 5 of our most popular drums.  The three material types will be steel, plastic and fibre.

You can find a complete list of our steel drums on this page.
