Depending on the design, there are a number of characteristics that differentiate some models from others by giving them additional properties or functionalities to consider.
Some of our pallets of the Medium, Heavy Duty and Custom ranges are equipped with metallic reinforcements to increase their Rack Load, because this is the most restrictive of all loads and the one requiring more safety given the possible risks derived from an incident in these conditions.
Very often, reinforcing the plastic pallet for its use on the rack is not necessary. However, plastic pallets have a very long life cycle, and it is possible that the pallets are slightly weakened due to accidental handlings, producing alterations of the original design. For this reason, the metallic reinforcements increase the handling safety, especially in maximum load conditions.
Three different kinds of pallets exist in our catalogue, depending on the number of stands on the base. Depending on how they are placed, the pallets may have more or less characteristics, which have to be carefully analysed in order to choose the optimum pallet for an application.
Buffer stops are small protrusions located on the surface of plastic pallets usually on the outer perimeter. While the pallets are not supporting any type of load, they are usually stored in towers with multiple units. Sometimes these empty pallet towers are manipulated without any retaining elements, such as strapping or film, and then the use of such buffer stops helps to retain the pallet stack.
Likewise, some designs have been conceived in such a manner that the stops help to retain the merchandise within the pallet´s perimeter. The most common use of this kind of stops is for transporting crates with all kinds of goods.
There are pallets, with buffer stops of many shapes, sizes and functionalities, as well as pallets without buffer stops, since sometimes buffer stops can mark the products so it is usually chosen to eliminate them. Usually, our plastic pallets have a standard buffer stop, but upon request of our customers we can make productions without buffer stops, or modify the existing buffer stops to adapt them to a specific need.
When choosing a pallet, it is especially important knowing the different handling systems that will be used by the distribution chain by the different actors. It is very usual that as the pallet changes its owner, the handling is different and with different kinds of equipment.
Some 2-way pallets only allow handling through two of their laterals (large or short lateral), and 4-way pallets that can be handled through any of their laterals. 4-way pallets are more versatile, because they allow handling from any direction.
In addition to having holes, to be considered 2 or 4 entries pallets, they must have a dimension that allows their correct handling with different devices.
Many of our plastic pallets allow different types of customizing depending on the customer's needs. Due to the time spent in customizing and their complexity, a minimum order exists for certain kinds of customizations.
