Frequently Asked Questions About Our Wooden Pallets

What's the difference between a skid and a standard pallet?

Skids and standard pallets are similar in construction, leading many people to confuse the two. Skids get built with only a top deck. They also weigh less than pallets. Pallets have a top and bottom deck. The dual decks give pallets more stability than skids.

What's the load-bearing capacity of a standard pallet?

Load-bearing is a safety feature you need to consider when purchasing an Australian standard pallet. Pallets are constructed from wood, making them susceptible to damage from overuse and the elements. How you use your pallet can also impact its load-bearing capacity. For example, a dynamic load refers to the weight you place on a pallet before putting it in motion. Being in motion refers to moving the pallet around with various equipment, like a forklift. Static load means when weight gets placed on a pallet that’s at rest, like when it’s storing items. Racking load is when you place a pallet in a racking system. It’s important to consider what you will use your pallets for before purchasing them. You want to ensure that the pallet has the right load-bearing capacity for your purposes
