Treated wood pallets are a necessity for all wood packaging material used in international shipments.
Proper heat treatment is one of the vital steps to ensure the safety of the pallet, the product being shipped, and the surrounding environment of the product’s destination.
In a nutshell, during the heat treatment process pallets are heated to a core temperature of 140 degrees for a minimum of 30 minutes. This ensures that all insects and larva will be killed off, after which the pallet can be used and reused to ship goods internationally.
Once a pallet has been heat treated, it is stamped with a globally recognized image which allows for more efficient transportation of goods.
Here at Palletland we are extremely proud of our new heat treatment facility powered by renewable energy sources.
Our facility is powered by our biomass system and fuelled by waste wood products that have come to the end of their life and can’t be recycled.
This million-pound project has enabled Palletland to produce economically friendly heat treated wooden pallets at lower cost than any other competitor.
All treatments are strictly monitored to meet the guidelines set for ISPM15 treated products.
Customers will be given certified documentation to show treatment of timber goods and a copy of the graph produced during the burn to keep on record.
For guidelines on whether your pallets would need treatment and the level of treatment required, please contact a member of staff for more details.
