CHEP continues to invest substantial resources into the development of Plastic Pallets. Relative to timber, a Plastic Pallet offers the attraction of being lighter in weight and impervious to moisture.
For hygiene-sensitive applications such as pharmaceutical manufacturing and food production, Plastic Pallets are sometimes preferred over timber because of their non-porous surface, non-odour absorption, and because they are more easily cleaned.
External dimensions are consistent with AS4068-1993 Australian standard for flat pallets material and handling
No nails or splinters can reduce product damage
Non-porous surface protects goods from contamination
Average weight is 29 kg
Compatible with most existing supply chain infrastructure provides efficiency of unit load movements
Can be cleaned and offers improved hygiene standards relative to timber
Reduced OH&S risk and potential for reduced transport costs compared to timber
Beam racking maximum payload 2,000 kg
Drive in racking maximum payload 1,000 kg
Static load 8,000 kg
Caution: payload performance in racking is contingent on the pallet being racked as per directions shown on the side of the pallet. Load durations of not more than one week are preferred if using maximum payload.
Pallet capability is significantly reduced above normal ambient temperature (23 degrees Celsius). For example, when used in high beam racking, maximum payload should not exceed 700 kg at 40 degrees Celsius.
When used in drive in racking, maximum payload should not exceed 500 kg at 30 degree Celsius, and 350 kg at 40 degree Celsius
