Steel pallets are ideal for use in heavy warehouse environments to store and transport goods. They are also robust and can last a long time on account of their toughness and structure. If you are looking to buy steel pallets in Glasgow for your business then it is essential that you choose the right company who can offer pallets that will handle even the heaviest loads over time. Aside from making sure that your pallet provider offers a product made from high grade galvanized steel, you should also pay attention to details like weight, width and size as this can affect the compatibility between the pallets and your work process.
The Importance of Galvanised Steel
The importance of quality galvanized steel can never be overlooked and it is essential in protecting your pallets from rusting and degrading. Normal unprotected steel contains iron, carbon and traces of other elements such as maganese, nickel and chromium. Oxidisation, otherwise known as rust, occurs when the elements of iron react with oxygen and water. Galvanization is the process whereby a protective zinc coating is added into the molten iron mixture. When the molten iron cools, the zinc forms a coating around the outside of the metal effectively providing a protective barrier. Without galvanisation, a steel pallet would not last very long as it would rust, flake and eventually degrade. At Range Storage Equipment, we regularly supply to companies looking to by steel pallets in Glasgow because we are known throughout the UK for using quality galvanised steel that is robust enough to take a lot of abrasions without rusting through.
Do You Need Castor Wheels
When looking to buy steel pallets you must also determine whether you wish for them to be used as a means of storage, transport or even both. Rather than rely on having to use a forklift truck to move stacks of metal pallets, around the warehouse from production and storage to transport, castor wheels offer an easier option by making the pallet mobile and moveable with nothing more than a push. If you are looking to by fixed-castor steel pallets in Glasgow you need to take extra care that whatever company you choose uses high quality castor units that are properly fixed to the base of your pallet. Don’t forget that the castor wheels on at the base of steel pallet stacked with heavy goods will be under an enormous amount of concentrated pressure. It is therefore essential that the castor fixtures can withstand this without buckling or breaking.
Steel pallets can sometimes come fitted with mesh sides that can act as a cage to help secure goods without obstructing the view of them. Order picking and other warehouse based activities require operatives to see the contents of their stock at a glance which is where the wire mesh sides come in good use. Once again, before you decide to buy steel pallets make sure that you establish the particulars of why you need them along with all essential features.
