Goplasticpallets.com launches next-generation hygienic pallet

New features include rounded corners on all sides

The new, improved Hygienic pallet

Goplasticpallets.com, based in Eastbourne, East Sussex in the UK, a division of All Pallets, offers a new, improved version of its Hygienic pallet, which is said to provide superior performance in automated conveyor systems.

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com, said: 'Our Hygienic plastic pallet has been a popular favourite with the food and pharmaceutical industries since its UK launch in 2001, so we’re delighted to be able to offer this new version, which heralds the next generation of plastic pallet.'

New features include rounded corners on all sides to ensure the smoothest transition through automated conveyor systems while minimising the risk of pallets getting trapped and damaged – as is often the case with wooden pallets.

Curved sloping ramps on both sides of the perimeter base allow pallet trucks easily to access and leave the pallet, even when it is empty. The company says is a huge safety benefit as it means that hand pallet trucks can more easily secure and move the pallet without dragging it across the floor.

In addition, special angles on each of the four corners make stretch-wrapping palleted goods simpler.

Manufactured from the highest food grade virgin HDPE, the new Hygienic pallet has smooth, sealed surfaces and is fully compliant with EU safety legislation. Free from joints, slots and other cavities, the Hygienic pallet has been specially designed to prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust, ensuring that optimum hygiene conditions are maintained throughout the handling process.

The new Hygienic pallet is quick and easy to clean and is strong and robust offering a reliable, consistent performance throughout its working life.

The pallet measures 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) and is available in seven colours as standard – red, green, yellow, blue, beige, grey and white.

Additional colours, including two-colour options and printed branding for personalisation are also available for large orders.
