Plain Pallets on 15 February 2017

Steel is an incredibly strong and durable material. It's used to build cars, skyscrapers, and tools. But steel is also perfectly suited for making pallets.

All the properties of steel which make it useful as a building material are also useful properties for pallets. This makes steel pallets an essential part of materials handling for many industries.

Here are the benefits and advantages of using steel pallets instead of other types of pallets.

The benefits of steel pallets

Steel pallets are designed to be a robust and durable option for industries with specialist materials handling needs. Using steel to construct pallets means that they are much stronger than regular pallets, they are easy to sterilise, and do not rot or carry pests.

The benefits of steel pallets include:

  • High load capacity
  • Longer lifespan
  • Hygienic and easy to sterilise
  • Easy to stack
  • Can be exported without quarantine issues
  • Corrosion and weather resistant
  • Recyclable

These benefits make steel pallets extremely useful to a wide range of industries.
