Types of Wooden Pallets

A. Poplar

It is a broad-leaved tree with loose and soft materials and poor durability. It is suitable for making pallets with low load-bearing requirements. The price is lower.

B. Pine

Coniferous tree species, many kinds, wide applicability. Larch (Huanghua pine) texture thick solid, wood hard, affordable, is one of the common materials for the manufacture of pallets.

White pine and red pine texture meticulous, white color, beautiful appearance, mostly used in the manufacture of fine packaging, higher prices.

C. Hard miscellaneous Wood

Genus Broad-leaved species, wood hardness is large. Sawn timber for pallet making is common in elm, birch, acacia, willow and so on. Its texture is dense, the wood is hard and heavy, and the load-bearing quality is good. But there are few large materials, the price is moderate.

How to Extend the life of wooden pallets?

In order to make the pallets safe for long-term use, it is desirable to use the pallets correctly as follows:

– Wood pallets should be customized to avoid exposure to sunlight, so as not to cause aging and shorten the service life.

– Reasonably determine how the goods are stacked in the pallet. Place the goods evenly, do not concentrate on stacking, eccentric stacking. The pallet carrying the heavy objects should be placed on a flat surface or on the surface of the object.

– It is strictly forbidden to throw the tray from a high place to avoid the broken and cracked tray caused by the violent impact.

– When working in a forklift or manual hydraulic truck, the fork thorn should be placed on the outside of the fork hole of the pallet as much as possible. The fork thorn should be fully inserted into the tray, and the angle can be changed after the tray is lifted smoothly. The fork must not hit the side of the tray to avoid cracking and cracking of the tray.

– Shelf-type pallets must be used when racking on pallets. The custom load capacity of wooden pallets is determined according to the shelf structure, and overloading is strictly prohibited.
