If you have worked with wood pallets, you are most likely familiar with their many pros and cons when it comes to material handling. Although they are commonly used in many industries, pallets crafted from wood are not durable and tend to break easily, leading to potential product contamination and hazardous working conditions that can quickly become a liability. Wooden pallets are also difficult to clean, do not function well with forklifts, and are neither cost-effective nor environmentally-friendly.
For an innovative and cost-effective alternative to traditional wood pallets look no further than our plastic pallets, a perfect solution to your material handling needs. They offer many benefits: durability, forklift-friendly design, and easy-to-clean surfaces. If you are considering making the switch to plastic pallets for your business, read on to learn why plastic pallets are the material handling solution that you have been looking for.
Unlike traditional wooden pallets, our plastic pallets are crafted with an innovative cross-ribbed design that evenly distributes weight for durability and strength. Thanks to this sturdy design without seams or weak points, our strongest pallets can hold up to 3,500 pounds without breaking.
Safe Alternative to Wood
When wood pallets break (and they often do!), the resulting splintered wood and nails often contaminate both the work environment and the product. Hazardous materials that create slip and trip risks in your workspace are a liability that can easily be avoided by switching to our durable plastic alternative. Crafted from USDA and FDA-approved 100% virgin-grade plastic, our pallets pose no safety or damage risks to your employees or product. The safety and quality of our materials is an especially important consideration for those in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Since all of our pallets are crafted from plastic, they are also ideal for use in wet environments – as they do not absorb liquid and can be easily washed – thus eliminating any risk of contamination.
While wooden pallets are often “one-and-done” in functionality, our cross-ribbed plastic pallets can be used repeatedly without wear and tear. The multi-use functionality of our pallets ensures that you and your business get your money’s worth instead of running out to purchase new pallets on a weekly or monthly basis.
Easy to Work With & Clean
Our innovative design also incorporates angled, rounded legs which guide the fork tines into place when being used by a forklift. This unique design reduces damage issues that are common with wooden pallets by allowing the fork tines to deflect off the leg instead of breaking or cutting into the pallet. All of our pallets also include rounded, reinforced corners and 4-way entry for handling ease.
Although they are non-rackable, our pallets come with an optional stacking lip feature on the long side. This makes them easy to stack and transport, while also preventing product slippage when they are in use. All of our plastic pallets are designed with a smooth, flat top that is easy to clean, a critical feature when working in a warehouse environment.
Despite their strong design, our pallets are also relatively light, with our heaviest model (that holds up to 3,500 pounds) weighing in at 55 pounds.
Environment & Budget Friendly
Due to their durable, reusable nature, plastic pallets from Fibertech, Inc. are also an environmentally friendly option that will save money for your business in the long run. Thanks to the cutting-edge engineering of our pallets, they will last for hundreds of uses, making them a cost-effective investment that pays off over time.
In fact, we are so confident in our pallets that they come with a 4-year warranty! Since all of our pallets are crafted from 100% virgin grade plastic, they are also recyclable, eliminating disposal fees and making them an environmentally-friendly choice.
