Pallet Collars Explained
Pallet collars are a modern and efficient replacement for traditional wooden boxes. Constructed from four to six wooden boards with metallic hinges in each corner to hold the boards together.
The hinges allow the pallet collar to be collapsed when not in use. This has contributed to their growing popularity where such factors are very important in successful logistics operations.
These pallet collars are placed on top of traditional pallets to form box type storage.
The beauty of pallet collars is in their flexible construction which has allowed pallet collars to stand out from other alternative storage solutions. Their construction ensures that they can be adapted to suit different heights and sizes.
There are four standard manufacturing heights: 100mm, 200mm, 300mm, 400mm. These array of heights means it’s possible to closely match every single package to their contents.
There are also three standard sizes: 600×800, 800×1200 and 1000x1200mm. These will fit most common pallet sizes.
The most common material for pallet collars is softwood which provides the necessary quality, though other materials can sometimes be used.
