A pallet collar is a cost-effective timber surround that fits a standard Australian pallet. That may sound very simple – and indeed it actually is!
The pallet collar is designed to make things simpler, easier and safer in the warehouse, being an easy-to-assemble surround which is rated to retain parts on a pallet.
The problem is, the challenges in warehouses often aren’t simple:
Are you looking for a safer way to store parts in your racking?
Needing to fit out the warehouse with retaining options without blowing the budget?
Maybe you have smaller parts which need to be itemised and divided on the pallet to make for easier picking.
However, the pallet collar, as simple as it may be, has the answer to many of these questions that we face everyday.
Let’s revisit those 3 common challenges in the warehouse
CHALLENGE 1 – Are you looking for a safer way to store parts in your racking?
ANSWER – The Omni-tuff Pallet Collar is an extremely safe way to store parts in racking. Not only are the sides made out of heavy-duty heat-treated pine, but this collar has also been rated to 1.5T when used with an Australian Standard Hardwood Pallet, giving you peace of mind that the pallet collar is able for your needs. Furthermore, it comes with a ‘Hold-Down’ bracket system, which allows the pallet collar to be locked to the pallet, saving any dislodging of the collar or falling of parts from height. A solid collar, which has been rated for heavier loads – sounds like the answer to a safer storage method!
CHALLENGE 2 – Needing to fit out the warehouse with retaining options without blowing the budget?
ANSWER – Again, the Pallet Collars are the one to rear its head! By using cost-effective bulk production and standard design, the pallet collar offers an economical design – saving your budget and ensuring you can still achieve safe retaining for little cost.
CHALLENGE 3 – Maybe you have smaller parts which need to be itemised and divided on the pallet to make for easier picking.
ANSWER – Often, your pallets can be made up of a number of different SKU’s – line items which may be packed not-so-neatly on the pallet. And how do you know which box matches which SKU when you pick? The Omni-tuff Pallet collar offers an innovative divider system called the 3-notch divider. By allowing dividers to be interlocked into each of the 3 slots – up to 16 small component spaces can be created per collar. By dividing up separate line items into their own respective collar division, picking becomes easier and more efficient. The next step to ensuring easy picking can be covered by our A4 label holder, which efficiently slots over the collar and can have barcodes or ID labels slotted inside for easy identification. Take it one step further with our Vision Mod Panel, which is a cage front which you can pin to your collar to allow you to view what is inside!
This is only 3 of the most common warehouse challenges… But of the many that exist, the pallet collar seems to offer some great answers!
