There is a set of parameters used to specify and describe the different solutions so they can be comparabl.
In the case of Europe, two standard dimensions exist: 1200x800 mm and 1200x1000 mm. The first one is the most common in commercial distribution and the second one is the most usual in industry applications. It is generally considered that these dimensions correspond with the standard load units for most applications. However, during recent years, logistics has become increasingly professionalized, and new dimensions have been launched as the consequence of survey and analysis; these new dimensions have prooved that they are able to generate important efficiencies and have been very well received in some industries. These dimensions are usually tractions of the standard dimensions.
Other pallet parameters, like height or number of entry holes, etc. may vary among the different models, but the external dimensions are pretty much standardized.
During the design and development of a new product, Naeco performs load simulations and calculations to ensure the safety of the transported goods as well as its handlings in different environment and scenarios. Tests are later performed on the product in accordance with the UNE EN ISO 8611 Norm, defining the loads to be supported by the product during use. Finally, thanks to our test area, Nortpalet employs a quality system on the final product allowing us giving the warranty that all our products comply with the defined specifications.
Thus, the load capacity of our plastic pallets is described by means of the different load types described below:
The weight of a plastic pallet is one of the most important elements due to its impact on most of the characteristics of the product, from its price to its load capacity. As a general rule, the higher the weight, the higher the resistance, the longer the durability, the higher the load on the rack, the higher the price ... The weight of the pallet is the property that defines the range, except for cases such as pallets Custom or Hygienic that are characterized by other types of properties.
However, it is important taking into account the optimization of the different designs available in the market, because this rule is not applicable to similar products with very little weight variation. At Naeco, thanks to the most sophisticated design programs and our extensive know-how, we manufacture optimized products with as little material as possible, matching or surpassing other products with slightly more weight.
Pallet resistance is the pallet´s capacity absorbing impacts or accidental handlings. It is therefore a feature of special importance with regard to durability. Generally speaking, the resistance of a pallet is strongly related with its weight and its range, and not with its load capacity. So, Heavy Duty will be more resistant than pallets of the Medium range, and these are less resistant than Lightweight pallets.
Likewise, the design of the equipment and material used for manufacturing plays an important role. Design is usually a constant; once the model has been defined, the choice of the material is the only variable of the equation. From all materials available, HDPE or High Density Polyethylene is the material with the best properties to resist impacts, but is also more elastic. Next in the range are the pallets manufactured in PP or Polypropylene, and those produced with ECO materials are the less resistant. Resistance is strongly dependant with the cost of the equipment. For this reason, choosing the optimum level is important to find the highest cost efficiency.
