MEDFORD, NEW JERSEY, USA - Formed in a single piece to eliminate crevices and cavities that could potentially harbor bacteria, mold and other contaminants, the ProStack® One-Piece Hygienic Pallet is ideal for food, pharmaceutical and medical applications. Its see-through, open-grid top deck, smooth finish and flow-through design make sanitization and cleaning easy, while facilitating quality inspections.

"It's critically important for companies in the food processing and pharmaceutical industries to ensure the purity of their ingredients and finished products," notes Dan Kelly, President and CEO of Polymer Solutions International, Inc., the pallet's manufacturer. "That's why we designed this pallet to be hygienic, easy-to-clean, durable and ideal for quality inspections. Transporting and storing food and pharmaceuticals on hygienic plastic pallets, along with correct handling procedures, dramatically reduces the risk of contamination."

Edge-rackable up to 2,200 pounds, the pallet measures 40 x 48 x 6.25 inches and comes in two models: full perimeter picture frame or three-stringer. The pallet is rated for a 30,000 pound static load, or a 5,000 pound dynamic load. Four-way fork entry accommodates use with either forklifts or pallet jacks. All hygienic pallet models achieve the critical ergonomic benchmark of weighing less than 50 lbs. All models will weight just 45 to 48 pounds-8 to 10 percent lighter than competitors' plastic pallets.

"The lighter weight is a critical feature because of OSHA requirements, and the resulting need to eliminate workplace injuries by reducing the amount of weight people need to handle while on the job," Kelly continues. "Our engineering group achieved this through a painstaking design and testing process, allowing us to enhance racking strength and durability."

Extremely durable, the pallet's design contributes to cost reduction, adds Kelly. "Cost savings are realized by increased cycles and longer life. Pallets don't fail in a parking lot or in a warehouse-they fail in the production line, causing costly shut downs. A higher quality pallet translates directly to increased manufacturing efficiencies and a decrease in the cost-per-trip,"

ProStack One-Piece Hygienic Pallets can be made from several material options depending upon customer requirements, including 100% recyclable, FDA-approved high density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP). They are also available with Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FM) approved grades of flame retardant, now with a Non-Deca Bromine Additive.

For further customization to meet individual application needs, the pallets may be ordered with grommets, hot-stamped logo or identification marks, and in black, medium blue or gray.
