What are heat-treated pallets?
Heat-treating has become the ultimate standard for sterilizing wooden pallets and crates. In a nutshell, heat is used to alter the composition of wood to make it more resistant to moisture and completely eradicate living organisms. Additionally, heat-treated pallets have increased resistance to fungi and other microorganisms that often cause materials to rot. Unlike other methods of sterilization, such as fumigation, heat-treating makes zero use of toxic pesticides and chemicals.
What are the advantages?
How does cheaper shipping, safer handling and longer-lasting pallets sound? Well, with heat-treated pallets, your business can benefit from all of these advantages and then some! Contrary to standard wood-treating methods, heat-treating:
- Reduces moisture content, making pallets lighter and freight cheaper.
- Minimizes chemical-related health risks for guaranteed safe handling.
- Destroys parasites, such as insects and larvae
- Better preserves wood thanks to increased durability.
- Does not release chemical fumesduring manufacturing.
- Reduces waste by creating a eusable and recyclable product.
- Decreases the risk of cross-contaminated goods and transfers of parasites across borders.
