Space-Saving Pallets For Easy Handling
Cabka-IPS, a manufacturer of plastic pallets and containers for sustainable use, has added container pallets to its successful line of products. The new size 1,140 x 1,140 mm (Nest C5.2), augmenting the existing pallets in size 1,100 x 1,100 mm Nest C5.
The large Nest C5.2, is available as a nestable pallet with nine feet or in a version with six clip-on runners. This pallet is a real space-saver: 15 empty pallets stack to a height of just one meter. This permits dense storage and economical transport of empties. The result is lower shipping costs and re-duced CO2 emissions.
The new pallets also save space when they are in service. The Nest C5.2 makes optimal use of the space in an ISO container (2,320 mm inside width): two pallets fit side by side. Five can be lined up in a 20-foot container (5,710 mm inside length) and ten in a 40-foot container (12,040 mm inside length). Thus the pallets fit snugly in containers of both lengths, whereas other pallets often require additional packing material. Die Nest C5.2 is very easy to handle. Its square base allows fork lifts to pick it up from any side. Workers have no trouble moving it by hand, because it weighs only 12.5 kg when empty. The weight-to-load ratio is excellent: the pallet can cope with static loads of up to 4,000 kg and dynamic loads of up to 1,500 kg. The pal-let is available with or without a closed top deck.
Cabka-IPS manufactures plastic pallets and boxes in Weira (Thüringen, Germany), St. Louis, MO (USA) and Ypres (Belgium). The company em-ploys around 400 people in Europe and North America. Cabka-IPS products are in use in more than 40 countries.
