9 feet

9 feet

Pallets equipped with tapered feet allow the nesting of pallets in a stack, achieving a volume reduction up to 75 % during storage and transportation. Without runners, these pallets cannot generally be used on roller tracks or in high-racks. These pallets do not normally carry more than small or medium-sized loads of up to 1500 kg.

3 runners

3 runners

Pallets with three lengthwise runners are stackable and compatible with automated conveyor and high-racking systems. The runners may be reinforced by metal to provide for the storage of particularly heavy loads.

5 runners

5 runners

The perimetric bottom decks without a central transverse runner (5 runners) allow for better four-way entry and offer excellent block stackability.

6 runners

6 runners

Plastic pallets with a fully perimetric bottom support (6 runners, cruciform perimeter-base) meet the highest demands in terms of block stacking. Their large supporting surface protects and avoids pressure marks on the cargo stored below and also ensures long-term stability for the plastic pallet.



Nominal Load and Working Load

A nominal load and a working load may be determined for every typical load condition described (static, dynamic, high-racking). To understand the load capacities published, it is necessary to differentiate between these two terms and definitions. Both are determined in accordance with the ISO 8611 standard and defined as follows:


Plastic Pallet Test Methods

 

ISO series 8611 (Pallets for materials handling - flat pallets) is applied in order to ensure that the testing and assessment of the operative capability and safety of pallets are comparable on a worldwide basis.




Cost-neutral expenditures does not need to be included in the comparison, because it will have no effect on the difference in cost shown. Cost-efficiency evaluations with reference to these system parameters as offered by Fraunhofer IML (Institute for Material Flow and Logistics) focus on a comparison be- tween alternative pallets and do not only show cost drivers, but also help to identify weak points, thus providing important starting points for process optimization.
