Both cardboard and plastic are burnable and approved to be burned. The traditional wooden pallet collar has nailed hinges that are hard to remove, and the galvanised metal can not be burned eco-friendly.
The sides of Ekopallkragen are made of 15mm thick special cardboard, a pure natural product that is recycleable.
The hinges of Ekopallkragen are molded in one piece of PP plastic.
The unique combination of plastic hinges and cardboard are a new patented invention, and all suppliers that today uses cartons and other packaging can now use Ekopallkragen instead to make environmental savings.
The Ekopallkragen can also be reused, which of course increases the environmental savings even more.
HAS A LOW WEIGHT
The Ekopallkragen weighs less than 2,5 kg - about 5 kg less than a wooden pallet collar. This means considerable lower transport costs, especially at airfreights.
The low weight also saves the personnels backs and necks. A common problem with the wooden pallet collars are the squeeze injuries, which is not the case with Ekopallkragen.
IS EASY TO PROFILE
Logotype and other marketing messages are easily applied on the sides of Ekopallkragen with decals or screenprint. This is of big importance today, as the goods more and more often are sold directly from the pallets in the shops.
IS 25% BIGGER
The standard size is 800x1200 mm (full pallet) and 600x800mm (half pallet), both 250 mm high.
The size of Ekopallkragen can also be adjusted to special needs, even in smaller series.
IS EXPORT SAFE
The Ekopallkragen solves the problem with the new restrictions for import/export - ISPM15 (International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures, for more info go to www.ippc.int).
The Ekopallkragen gives great economic savings compared to the earlier wooden pallet, both through lower buying price, the possibility to leave out cartons and other packaging, the fact that it is reusable and, of course, the lower freight costs.
