Goplasticpallets releases new pallet ranges
20 March 2015
Goplasticpallets.com has introduced new models to its extensive range of pallets - a hygienic offering and a heavy duty pallet.
It has launched an improved version of its hygienic pallet, which has been optimised for automated conveyor systems.
Enhanced features include rounded corners on all sides to ensure smooth transition through automated conveyor systems and to minimise the risk of pallets getting trapped and damaged – as is often the case with wooden pallets.
Curved sloping ramps on both sides of the perimeter base allow pallet trucks to easily access and leave the pallet, even when it is empty. This feature is a safety benefit as it means that hand pallet trucks can more easily secure and move the pallet without dragging it across the floor.
In addition, angles on each of the four corners make stretch wrapping palleted goods much simpler.
Jim Hardisty, MD of Goplasticpallets.com, said: "Our Hygienic plastic pallet has been a popular favourite with the food and pharmaceutical industries since its UK launch in 2001, so we’re delighted to be able to offer this new version.”
Manufactured from the highest food grade virgin HDPE, the new Hygienic pallet has smooth, sealed surfaces and is compliant with EU safety legislation. Free from joints, slots and other cavities, the pallet has been designed to prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust.
The design also means that the new Hygienic pallet is quick and easy to clean. And, like all medium and heavy duty plastic pallets, it is strong and robust offering a reliable, consistent performance throughout its long working life.
The new Hygienic pallet measures 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) and is available in seven colours as standard – red, green, yellow, blue, beige, grey and white.
Goplasticpallets.com has also signed the exclusive UK distribution rights for what is said to be the world’s only closed deck 1200mm x 1200mm plastic pallet.
Weighing in at 27.5kg, the heavy duty, full perimeter APB 1212 pool pallet is designed for high-rotation usage in open or closed pools.
Exceptionally robust, this long-life square pallet is suitable for bulk storage and distribution, and due to its special size, it can be used to transport four 205 litre drums and store big IBC bags safely in racks.
The APB 1212 pool pallet can accommodate heavy loads of up to 1250kg in racking, dynamic loads of 2500kg and static loads of 5000kg.
On the move, stacks of 15 empty pallets can be securely transported, allowing a standard trailer load to carry up to 330 pallets in one trip.
Manufactured from recycled polypropylene, the APB 1212 pool pallet is available on three or six runners for easy 4-way entry, with a closed or open deck and comes with a 7mm rim offering built-in safety.
For orders of 500+ units, a number of options are available including a choice of different colours, personalisation with a company name or logo, RFID transponders, and ESD options.
Anti-slip features are also available upon request including anti-slip strips on the top deck and anti-slip grommets under the deck for fork handling.
In addition to the APB 1212 pool pallet, Goplasticpallets.com also stocks the APB 1140 pool pallet, which due to its size – 1140mm (L) x 1140mm (W) x 165mm (H) – is suited to transporting loads in shipping containers.
