How much can a PALLITE® Pallet Carry?
We get asked this question a lot. A PALLITE® pallet is made from paper, so it surely can’t carry that much – right? Wrong. A standard PALLITE® pallet can hold up to 750kg in open-beam racking, and bespoke versions can hold much more – it all depends on the specification. If you talk to our team, they’ll help you find the right PALLITE® for your supply chain. You can contact them here.
How much weight can I save by changing from a wooden crate and pallet, to a PALLITE® pallet box?
Based on the following calculations, you could reduce weight by 80%
Euro Wooden Pallet – 25kg
Euro Pallet Collars – 8.1kg each (195mm)
Euro Plywood Crate Lid – 5kg
PALLITE® Euro Box – 12.4kg
((Pallet = 25kg) + (4x Collars = 32.4kg) + (Lid = 5kg) = 62.4kg) – 12.4kg = 50kg
50kg / 62.4kg = 80.13%
How much weight can I save by changing from a wooden pallet to a PALLITE® pallet?

20.95/25kg = 83%
Is a PALLITE® Pallet waterproof?
PALLITE® pallet can be successfully used in wet environments, but we recommend that you avoid long-term exposure to water. Its strength is due to the layers of glue acting as barriers between the sheets of paper, so it can withstand more water than corrugate. The papers we use also have a high resistance to moisture. We thoroughly test all our products. You can learn more about testing here.
