There are two different basic kinds of plastic pallets available in the market: open and closed. Exporta Global is in the business of manufacturing plastic pallets, and they are experts when it comes to plastic closed deck pallets. There are various reasons why you would choose closed deck design over the open deck design.
Close smooth deck plastic pallets are less prone to accumulation of dust and other impurities. This is because they have a smoother surface and there are no holes which reduce contamination from accumulation of dust particles and other impurities.
Smooth deck pallets are also preferable over other types of pallets since they have certain advantages. This is because they have a longer shelf life compared to pallets made from other materials such as wood. Open sided pallets have holes to make it easier to stack them one on the top of other. These holes are prone to dust and impurities which can ultimately lead to contamination. This also reduces their shelf life.
These types of pallets have a smooth surface which makes it easier to clean using solutions and chemicals. Holes can sometimes be difficult to clean and you might not reach the corners. A shelf life of over 10 years makes them a fantastic asset. Their cost is depreciated over a period of time resulting in savings for the company.
Design and user case scenarios:
Closed deck pallets are usually used in food and pharmaceutical companies where goods are vulnerable to dust, bacteria, pests and other forms of contamination. It is important to clean the pallets from time and time and make sure that they are completely free from all forms of contamination.
Closed deck pallets manufactured by Exporta Global are reinforced with steel that is corrosion free making them even stronger than they already are. The pallets are built using welding seams near the top and base giving them additional protection from hits and further damages.
Moisture can lead to bacterial and fungal issues, and there is a strong need to clean the pallets using water. So it is important to dry them before using them to carry goods. Closed deck plastic pallets are easier to clean and they dry faster because of their unique design.
The walls of these pallets are thicker than usual pallets giving them added strength improving their weight lifting capacity. Chamfered sides of the pallets make them compatible with most of the conveyors used in the shipping industry.
Exporta Global employs an advanced technique that makes plastic pallets skid free. Pallets that are prone to skidding can cause them damage. This happens due to the use of pallets jacks that are used to lift pallets. But a skid free design used for the close deck pallet helps to avoid damages caused by skids. Polyethylene (chemically neutral) is used to construct these pallets which makes them even more durable and stronger at the same time.
Before you decide to buy closed deck pallets, it is important that you check whether they are certified or not. This is an important step. Go eco-green and adopt plastic pallets today.
