Types of Pallets: Types of Pallets Stringer Pallets Stringer pallets utilize a frame of up to three or even more pieces of timber which are parallel. These pieces are called stringers. The deckboards at the top are further affixed to these pieces to establish the structure of the pallet. These kinds of pallets may include a notch cut into them to enable a four way entry. Block Pallets Block pallets are also called Manoj pallets. They are generally better in terms of strength as compared to stringer pallets. They use both perpendicular and parallel stringers in order to facilitate better and efficient handling. These pallets are often referred to as four way pallets as well, due to the fact that a pallet-jack is sometimes used from sides to move them. Perimeter Base Pallets Both stringer and block pallets include “ undirectional bases”. This means that the bottom boards are oriented in a single direction. While automated handling tools may be created for this reason, most of the times they can work faster and efficiently if the pallet’s edges at the bottom include bottom boards having both directional orientations. For instance, it might not be required to turn a pallet in order to rack it, and thus operation becomes less sensitive regardless of pallet orientation.
