Timber/wooden pallet collars are the perfect way to protect your products in transit. Made from thick heat-treated timber, the pallet collars are extremely impact-resistant, ensuring that products inside are kept safe. Our premium wooden pallet collars are manufactured from planed single board timber, which is heat-treated and ISPM15 stamped. Along with their strong galvanised zinc hinges, they are very durable for the harshest industrial uses.
INKA stocks collars in the three main sizes; Euro (800x1200mm), half-Euro (600x800mm) and UK standard (1000x1200mm).
As previously mentioned, Euro pallet collars have dimensions of 800x1200mm. As a result, Euro pallet collars are the standard European pallets as determined by the European Pallet Association. You might also see these pallet products being described using abbreviations such as EPAL or EUR. Typically speaking, Euro pallet collars are thinner than their standard UK counterparts.
When it comes to half-Euro pallet collars, the two longest sides are half the length of a Euro pallet collar’s two longest sides. The two shorter sides are the same length as the shorter sides of a Euro pallet collar. Therefore, half-Euro pallet collars have dimensions of 600x800mm. The safe weight load for the half-Euro is usually around 500kg.
Finally, UK standard pallet collars have dimensions of 1000x1200mm and are commonly used across the UK. They tend to be thicker than Euro and half-Euro pallet collars.
Wooden Pallet Collars vs Packing Cases and Crates
Packing cases and crates can be expensive and cannot easily be reused due to their bulky nature, whereas pallet collars have hinged corners and pack flat, so the units can be returned for reusing again for many years.
Pallet collars are also versatile as you can build them up in layers on the pallet to the height you require – perfect when despatching products of multiple heights and sizes.
Using Wooden Pallet Collars
Wooden pallet collars can be used in conjunction with plastic pallets, timber pallets, or presswood pallets to form a ready-to-go pallet box, either within closed supply chains or for exporting. Despite this, when using them with timber pallets, you must ensure that the pallet is also heat treated and ISPM-15 for exports; with plastic pallets or presswood pallets, you don’t need to worry – you’re good to go!
