A pallet collar is a modern and highly efficient wooden packaging solutions for compact, bulky or friable products of different types, that works together with the classic wooden pallet or various types of custom pallets. This solutions works as a substitution for the classic wooden boxes. The main difference in comparison to the wooden boxes is the possibility to collapse them when they are not in use. As such factors are highly important in professional logistics this solution has gained growing popularity world wide in the past 20 years, with approximately 20,000,000 new collars manufactured each year worldwide.
Each of the pallet collars is stacked on one another in order to form a box type of packing, but be-cause of the convenient design they provide several important benefits that have high value in the storage and transportation industry. To provide better transportation opportunities for more types of products, pallet collars were introduced to the market and followed the increased use of classic wooden pallets as a result of the growing popularity of containerised transportation on sea and land.
A single pallet collar consists of four or six wooden boards (plastic boards are also used) and four or six metallic hinges that are used to hold the boards together. These hinges allow to collapse every pallet collar in order to save space, which is one of the most important factors in successful logistics. Pallet collars work together with classic and different types of pallets.When quality pallet collars are used in the right way it is possible to optimise space in both ware-houses and when they are transported. They provide fast and easy handling and assembling. Also, the access to the goods that are stored is ensured to be faster and easier. When pallet collars are not used and there are no products in this packaging it is possible to collapse them and in comparison to wooden boxes it allows to save up to more that 80% of space.
Different types of products can be stored on pallets without the pallet collars, but they are still used in order to ensure safe multi-level both shelf and non-shelf storage which ensures warehouse optimisation. Using pallet collars ensure the possibility to store more types of products on pallet which would usually be stored in classic wooden boxes. For example, different friable products, can be stored when customised pallet is used.
