Load Capacity Explanation for plastic pallet & pallet box
Some users are confusing on load capacity types of plastic pallets and pallet containers,now we offer some explanation to help uderstanding,
• STATIC load is the maximum weight that the pallet can withstand when placed on a level solid surface.
An example of a static load would be a set of pallets that are stacked two or three pallets high. If each pallet had 1000 Kg. on it, then the bottom pallet would have a grand total of 3000 Kgs
• DYNAMIC load is the maximum weight that the pallet can accommodate when being moved by a forklift.
For example, a pallet rated for a“dynamic load” of 1000 kg. means you can put up to 1000kg of an evenly distributed product on the pallet, then the pallet could be placed on a convey or system or be moved around a warehouse by a forklift or hand pallet truck.
• RACKING load is the maximum weight that the pallet can accept in a racked system.
All plastic pallets have a safety margin to ensure that they can be loaded to these maximums, however these capacities assume that the load is evenly spread.
