Designed for the application
Our plastic pallets and boxes are moulded under extreme pressure, in highly polished moulds for consistent, dimensional accuracy and loading capacities.
Unrivalled strength and durability
The strength and durability of a plastic pallet is unrivalled when compared with wood. Heavy duty plastic pallets and boxes can withstand high-repeat use, rigorous, closed loop scenarios.
Maximise return on investment
Plastic pallets are recognised as a business asset lasting over 10 times longer than wood. An owned pallet pool can be created using one type of plastic pool pallet and even generate its own revenue, offering a high return on investment.
Exempt from ISPM15 regulations
Plastic pallets are an economic solution for export because they are exempt from International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No.15 (ISPM15), meaning there is no need to heat treat and certify them for use.
Suitable for hygienic areas
Smooth and easy to clean, our specialist range of Super Hygienic Pallets, Pallet Boxes and Containers are designed for hygienic applications.
Safer manual handling
Plastic pallets and boxes are manufactured without nails, sharp edges or splinters, and remove the risk of loose component parts breaking free under manual lifting conditions.
Not only are plastic pallets and plastic boxes made out of recycled materials, they can be reground to produce new plastic products at the end of their long working life.
No contamination issues
No hidden pockets or areas where dirt and dust can collect, so the plastic pallet or box’s surfaces remain contaminant-free.
Easy to clean
Plastic pallets can be repeatedly cleaned or washed, to remove any airborne dust or spilt products, which accumulate on the pallets over a period of time. Water-resistant, impervious to moisture, weak acids and alkalis.
A space and cost saving solution
From our nestable plastic pallets to collapsible containers, our plastic solutions save space in both the warehouse and in-transit. Meaning fewer return journeys, a reduced fuel bill and a lower carbon footprint.
