What Are The Parts Of Sheet Metal Pallets?

The sheet metal pallet is made up of the following parts:

  1. Lead boards

At the back and front of the pallet are two pieces of lumber

  1. Stringers

Stringers are a part where perpendicularly to the deck boards, a solid board extending the full length of the pallet is placed between blocks and deck boards.


Averagely, stringers can range from 1.5-inch to 3.5-inch pieces of lumber.

  1. Notches

A notch is where on the lower part of a stringer, an opening is located where a forklift can lift the pallet.

  1. Chamfered edges

Chamfered is a component where entryways are along the edges of the deck board between the 2*4 pieces of lumber.

  1. Blocks

This component is a square, multi-sided, rectangular, or cylindrical deck spacer, pinpointed by its location within the corner, edge, inner, end, corner, or middle blocks.

  1. Deck boards

It is a part where perpendicularly to stringers is located at the top and bottom hence forming stability and support of the pallet.

Which Material Are Suitable For Sheet Metal Pallets?

A sheet metal pallet is made from steel and Aluminum.

Steel and Aluminum are the suitable materials for sheet metal pallets because of the following reasons:

How Do You Fabricate Sheet Metal Pallets?

Various sheet metal pallets are fabricated and then collected together to be welded.

The following are the process followed for a sheet metal pallet to be fabricated:

1) Drawing

Before the sheet metal is converted into a different shape, a clear drawing is done to set objectives clear.

Drawing is done on software.

2) Planning the process

The following are the processes followed to form a sheet metal pallet:

  • Blanking

It is a shearing process. A workpiece is removed from an original sheet metal pallet by punching.

This process is done by NC machining, laser or press.

Fabricated sheet metal pallets

fabricated sheet metal pallet

The new workpiece formed is known as blank.

  • Riveting

Riveting is a forging process that joins two parts through a metal rivet.

  • Bending

It helps to make a sheet metal pallet strong and aids in sharp edges being removed.

  • Cutting

Cutting is done using a range of methods such as water jet, manual cutting, flame, laser and CNC lathe.

  • Forming

This process gives a sheet metal pallet the required shape after being cut. Metals can be shaped by bending, stamping and rolling.

  • Welding

This process is done to ensure parts are fused when needed. Heating soothes the collected details, and then it is allowed to cool to ease fusion.

3) Surface treatment

This process is carried out to form a protective coat on the sheet metal pallet. The coating aids in paint sticking on the metal.

Depending on the customer’s choice and sheet metal pallet type, different films are used on surface treatment which include:

  • Oxidation
  • Powder coating

Baking paint

How Do You Test Quality Of Sheet Metal Pallets?

It is very important to choose a sheet metal pallet of high quality.

Sheet metal is considered to be of high quality if it has the following features:

  • It is strong and can cater for material handling
  • It is durable and does not form a rot or corrosion
  • Allows room for stacking
  • Sheet metal pallet is recyclable without being damaged

Also, the following are the advantages that a consumer gets from the manufacturer or supplier of sheet metal pallets if testing is done:

  • Safety
  • Standardization
  • guarantee

Therefore the following are the factors that are tested to know the quality results of a sheet metal pallet:

  • material testing
  • tensile testing
  • bend testing
  • upright testing
  • compression testing
Which Features Should You Look For In Sheet Metal Pallets?

When choosing sheet metal pallets, the following are the features you should put into consideration:

  • Its primary purpose; is the product or materials that need to be transported.
  • The sheet metal pallet’s construction and packaging dimension; a stackable sheet metal pallet is highly recommended.
  • The durability of the sheet metal pallet, the long life of the metal pallet and how frequently it is used without getting damaged.

Sheet Metal Pallets

Therefore, this will be based on the material used to make the sheet metal pallet.

  • Transportation conditions; since sheet metal pallets can survive harsh weather conditions, it is good to consider when choosing which is best for the transportation.

The one that survives under heat or cold is considered suitable.

  • Strength of the sheet metal pallet; a heavy sheet metal pallet is highly recommended when transporting or storing heavy products.
What Is The Load Capacity Of Sheet Metal Pallets?

Sheet metal pallets vary with the load capacity they can hold. It, therefore, depends on the size and design of the sheet metal pallets.

The static load capacity of sheet metal means the weight is placed in pallets and is not in motion.

The static load capacity for a sheet metal pallet is 20,000 Ibs.

Dynamic load capacity means weight placed in an object, and it is moving.

Static load capacity is greater than dynamic load capacity.

Do You Have Custom Sheet Metal Pallets?

There are custom sheet metal pallets. Custom sheet metal pallets are considered advantageous because of the following:

  • They are efficient as they are constructed specifically for the customers’ purpose or objective.
  • They are strong and hence can provide strong load capacity.
  • Custom sheet metals can be made using a variety of materials.
  • They are durable and can be used for heavy-duty applications.

What Are The Recommended Surface Finish For Sheet Metal Pallets?

The following are the recommended surface finish for sheet metal pallets:

  • Hot-dip galvanized

Hot-dip galvanized

A sheet metal pallet is dipped in a molten zinc bath to stick a zinc-plated steel sheet on the surface.

Majorly sued to reduce corrosion and make the sheet metal pallet more durable.

The benefits that come with this type of surface finish on sheet metal pallets are:

  1. The layer makes the surface stronger hence it can withstand harsh environmental and mechanical damage.
  2. It helps prevent corrosion and rust hence the durability of the sheet metal pallet.
  3. Reduces maintenance cost as the anti-rust formed by the process is way cheaper than other paintings.
  • Polished

This type of surface finish method is where the surface is buffed to a smooth finish using a polishing machine or cloth wheel.

It gives a surface a smooth and glossy look.

Scratches and minor surface imperfections are removed.

It also removes oxidation.

  • Painted

Type of a surface finish in which paint is coated on the sheet metal pallets that function as concrete hurdles against environmental conditions.

Painting is done in two modes:

  • Electrostatic
  • Painting by cataphoresis
Are Sheet Metal Pallets Light Weight?

Sheet metal pallets are both lightweight and heavyweight.

Even though sheet metal pallets are made from steel and Aluminum, which makes them stiff, some products are light and need to be transported using lightweight metal pallets.

Lightweight sheet metal pallets help reduce weight when products are transported, hence reducing delivery costs.

What Are The Common Dimensions Of Sheet Metal Pallets?

Sheet metal pallets vary in size, height and weight.

But there are standard dimensions agreed on concerning the sheet metal pallets.

The standard sheet metal pallet size is 48″x40.”
