Reefer Pallet for Frozen and Refrigerated Goods
Pack Bazaar has developed a plastic pallet which is ideal for use in refrigerated shipping containers, or reefers as they are more commonly known.
Most 20' reefers have an internal length under 5500mm which creates an issue when trying to fit traditional 1100 x 1100mm pallets inside. Simply put there is no room on the floor for the 9th and 10th pallet. If you are double stacking then you can only fit 16 pallets in compared to 20 for a standard 20' shipping container.
By reducing the pallet footprint down to 1050 x 1050mm, Pack Bazaar pallet will allow you to get all 10 (or 20 double stacked) pallets placed inside the reefer with the doors shut.
This pallet has also been designed as a nestable pallet, to keep costs and storage requirements down. However, the base has been designed differently to the usual pod style nestable pallets which traditionally cannot be double stacked inside a container. The more flat style base of the Pack Bazaar pallet distributes the weight of the upper pallet more evenly allowing for double stacking in a greater number of situations.

Easy to Handle / No Moisture Absorbtion / Cleanliness
Compared with wood or steel Storo Plastic Pallets are lighter in weight and thus provide for easy handling. Since they do not absorb moisture they are suitable for transporting such items as paper products or cement. The problem of decomposing wood is obviously eliminated by using Storo Plastic Pallets.
High Impact Strength and Resistance against Heat or Cold
Specially selected HDPE and PPC material provides high impact and compression strength. These pallets are cold and heat resistant and can withstand extreme temperatures, from as low as -50°C to as high as 60°C. As a result use in cold storage is possible for they are not affected by seasonal changes.
Strong Design Structure
Not only are the materials used providing strength but the structure of the pallets have been carefully designed to ensure maximum performance and protection for your products. Many Storo Plastic Pallets are designed with a convenient 4-way forklift system allowing the pallet to be picked up from any direction.
Low Friction / Wear and Tear
Storo Plastic Pallets do not produce chips or particles during application. They are manufactured using a ‘One-Shot’ Moulding process with a special method used for the adhesion of connecting parts. This eliminates the need for protruding metal fasteners such as bolts and nuts, and nails. Therefore, superior performance is guaranteed especially for food processing industries and clean room environments.
Storo Plastic Pallets can weigh around 50 to 70% less than equivalent wooden pallets with the same dimensions. With the costs of freighting palletised goods ranging from just a few cents per kilo to over $10 per kg it makes sense to use a Storo plastic pallet.
