When taking into account the process of making the pallet, the life cycle and the disposal and recycling of the pallets, you may be surprised to find that the more environmentally friendly option is a plastic pallet.
Plastic pallets can be fully recycled at the end of their life cycle & pallets made of recycled plastic further promote a circular plastic economy where waste is reduced & not produced.
We have been in the industry for over 10 years now and we have had many requests for reinforced & extended or oversized pallets. With our expertise in plastic fabrication, we have been able to design & produce pallets for our customers that are not available off the shelf.
These have included anti-slip surfaces, heavy duty rims, location pins, lashing rings & reinforced bases.
Being constructed in one solid piece, plastic pallets do have the weak spots that wooden pallets have. This makes them less likely to buckle under a heavy load and units falling from the pallet. Choosing plastic over wood, you also remove nails in the construction, broken boards and the risk of splinters. This all prevents damage to goods and a safer working environment for employees.
