Wood Pallet is a decumbent hauling structure that is used for the shipping of lumbering appurtenances and makes it manageable. Most of the Wood Pallets can handle a load of 1,000 kg(2,205lb). Security of chattels are often ensured by strapping, stretch wrap or shrink wrap. While most of the Wood Pallets are wooden, Wood Pallets can also be made up of metal, steel, plastic, paper, and even recycled material. Wooden Wood Pallets typically consist of three to four stringers that support several deck boards. On top of which goods are placed.
There are mainly two broad divisions:
- Stringer Wood Pallets exercise a scaffold of three or more equidistant fragments of timber (called stringers). The culminating deck boards are then annexed to the stringers to formulate the Wood Pallet structure. These can have a notch cut into them that avow the four-way access.
- Block Wood Pallets are generally tenacious than stringer Wood Pallets. Block Wood Pallets employ both equidistant and perpendicular stringers to expedite conducive handling. It is also known as “four-way” Wood Pallet.
