By virtue of the moulding process, and inherent quality control procedures involved in the hi-tech manufacturing process of plastic pallets, the dimensional accuracy and load ratings of plastic pallets are 100% consistent. Unlike a wooden pallet which is constructed from a number of inconsistent parts of varying strength, plastic pallets are moulded under extreme pressure, in highly polished accurate moulds. The process itself produces an exceptionally high quality product.
Plastic pallets are safer to handle in a dispatch area, without the possibility of loose parts breaking free under manual lifting conditions, causing injury. More importantly, there are no nails, sharp edges or splinters in plastic pallets creating the risk of worker injury or product damage.
NO MOLD OR DUST CONTAMINATION ISSUES
Plastic pallets, made of Polyethylene or Polypropylene are not subject to any inherent mold or dust contamination risks. Whether open or closed deck design, the surfaces of plastic pallets are smooth and the molding process under high temperature and pressure produces sealed material. The “blue stain mold” which could appear in new wooden pallets, especially under conditions of high humidity, results in the contamination of the pallet possibly leading to the contamination of the boxes and/or products it carries.
Generally, Plastic pallets provide a cleaner and safer workspace environment.
In hygienic areas in particular, the cross contamination risks from the mold and dust inherent in wooden pallets is not an option. All styles and types of plastic pallets fully eliminate this risk. In addition, the specialist HYGIENIC PALLET has totally smooth sealed enclosed surfaces, removing any possibility of impurities accumulating in the pallet’s structure.
