Simplicity itself

The Orbit lid is a revolutionary metal lid designed to better open and close jars, while also enhancing consumer experience regardless of age.

Its closing mechanism consists of a central, vacuum-sealed, floating lid and an outer ring that provides better product protection. It is precisely this ring that acts as the opening and closing device. A simple twist suffices to loosen the ring and break the seal with hardly any resistance. Consequently, the Orbit is an easy-open lid particularly ideal for the elderly whose dexterity may not be what it was. A user-friendly, functional container and one of the most popular systems on the market.

As easy as... 1, 2, 3



3- BREAK the seal

Orbit is simplicity itself. Just a simple twist is needed to release the force required to lift the seal. Followed by a 'pop' and you’re done.

Thanks to its technology

Orbit reduces the force needed to open a jar by up to 50 % in comparison to threaded lids.

Quicker and easier to open than a standard lid.

Specifically designed to be closed again.

Easily withstands sterilisation pressure.

Can be used on all standard jars.

Enhanced resistance to excessive force. The ring acts as a shock-absorber that protects the seal.

Standard capping lines can be easily adapted to fit Orbit lids.
