New Wooden Pallets
NEW PALLET TYPES
Stringer pallets use a frame of three or more parallel pieces of lumber, called stringers. The top deckboards are then affixed to the stringers to create the pallet structure. Stringer pallets can have a notch cut into them allowing “four-way” entry. Forklifts can lift a stringer pallet from all four directions, though lifting by the stringers is more secure. The most common size stringer pallet, both new and used, is the 48x40 4-way flush pallet, also called the Grocery Manufacturer Association (GMA) pallet.
Block pallets are typically stronger than stringer pallets. Block pallets utilize both parallel and perpendicular stringers to better facilitate efficient handling. A block pallet is also known as a “four-way” pallet, since a pallet-jack may be used from any side to move it. Block pallets are capable of four-way entry using forklifts, hand trucks, and pallet jacks.
