long palletOur Sheet Metal customer needed heavy duty pallets to carry loads which varied a lot in length and weight – from 6 metres in length to more than 11. The loads of steel products used for rail carriages weighed up to 2 tonnes and were shipped all the way to Western Australia. Pace Pallet Services created special “Extreme Oversize” timber pallets which are a good example of our understanding of the engineering strengths of our timber materials.

“The job itself was quite unique because the longest length of pine timber is 6 metres. For anything larger than that we had to think outside the square and join timbers to make up the length whilst not compensating the overall strength of the pallet”, says Pace Pallet Services Managing Director Michael Mourad.
