Types of pallets
Stringer – Stringer pallets are the most used pallet. Stringers are used to support the load and are encompassed by top and bottom deck boards. Stringer pallet specifications are first noted by the length of the stringers, and secondly by the length of the deck boards. The most common size stringer pallet measures 48’ x 40” and is commonly referred to as a GMA pallet, or standard grocery store pallet. This is a standard created by the Grocery Manufacturer Association (GMA). These hardwood pallets are used for a wide variety of consumer products.
When deciding if a stringer pallet is the right pallet for your needs, you need to consider:
- Number and size of stringers
- Number and size of top and bottom deck boards (if there are no bottom deck boards, it is considered a skid)
- Does it need notched stringers?
- Does it need chamfered (a cut that is made at a 45⁰angle) deck boards?
- 2-way entry/4-way entry
- Single or double wing style
Block – Block pallets are 4-way entry pallets, with blocks utilized to support the product load. The number of blocks varies, but the typical number ranges from 4-12. Block pallet specifications are first noted by the length of the block stringer, secondly by the length of the deck boards. A standard style block pallet is a traditional 9 block pallet designed for 4-way entry. However, there are many other styles of block pallets that are highly customizable for specific needs, specifications, and uses.
Panel Deck – Panel deck pallets are from the traditional stringer or block pallet family, but with an entirely different deck configuration. Much like they sound, panel deck pallets are constructed with a solid panel covering the top to create a “deck”. The type of deck material and deck thickness can vary depending upon the desired uses and applications. Typically, plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), or particle board is used for decking material.
