Pallet Covers

Plastic pallet covers serve as a necessary protectant for various types of products. They ensure that said products and shipments are well protected from the exterior elements, while helping to reduce damage to shipments and prevent displaced loads.

Plastic pallet covers can have all or some of the following properties:

flexible

moisture and UVI resistant

anti-static

crack-resistant

shrink and non-shrink

variable slip levels

customizable print and a variety of colors

flame retardant

biodegradable

 

All of our products can be specifically tailored to your exact specifications regarding size, thickness, and any of the above properties.

Our versatile covers reduce packaging and shipping costs and also help your company to go green by reducing the carbon footprint.

These pallet covers are manufactured using a variety of customized resin formulas that will suit your application needs in mono-layer and co-extrusion of multiple layers. Co-extruded covers can be produced in two different colors, such as white on the outside and black inside. Co-ex covers offer a unique benefit of heat build-up reduction and UV light inhibition to reduce moisture in an outdoor storage environment.

Printed pallet covers offer your company immediate brand recognition. Essentially free advertising!

The possibilities of uses for pallet covers are endless, but here are a few industries we currently supply that utilize these covers to protect their products:

Food, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Agriculture, Resin, Powdered products, Masonry & building supply and Lawn and Garden.

Plastic pallet covers are designed in a manner to fit over a loaded pallet and wrap around the products. If you so choose, pallet covers may also be used for shrink applications where the polyethylene film is heated, which ‘shrinks’ around the products for a tighter fit.

Hurricane Harvey Impacts Resin

Hurricane Harvey has had an unprecedented impact on the Texas Gulf Coast. This has caused an immediate supply disruption on materials coming from that region. Over 50% of North America’s ethylene capacity is down at this point in time, creating a supply chain disruption unlike any we have seen before. In addition, as you may be aware, our plastic resin moves primarily by rail cars; which have been halted in the area at this time. Our suppliers and the railroads will begin making assessments of their infrastructure as soon as they are able to do so. These suppliers are also trying to locate and assemble their work forces.

Tri-Cor is monitoring this situation as it continues to unfold, realizing that it could further deteriorate. We are working closely with our suppliers and carriers to continually assess the situation.  We will strive to maintain operational continuity as much as possible and minimize service disruptions to our customers.

We appreciate your support and patience as we continue to deal with this challenging situation.

How to Measure for a Gusseted Pallet Cover

Looking to figure out what size pallet cover you need? – It’s easy!

The first step is knowing the dimensions of your pallet (or load size).  Then simply follow these steps:

  1. Pallet Width + 2” = Cover Width
  2. Pallet Depth + 2” = Cover Depth (or Gusset)
  3. Pallet Length (Height) + ½ of Pallet Depth + 4” = Cover Length

Note:  Depth is the shorter of the 2 sides

Measuring for pallet cover

EXAMPLE:

Pallet/Load Size:   40”W  x  36”D  x  50”L

  1. Cover Width:  40” + 2” =  42”
  2. Cover Depth:  36” + 2” =  38”
  3. Cover Length:  50” + 18” (½ of Pallet Depth) + 4” = 72”

PALLET COVER SIZE:   42”W  x  38”D (Gusset)  x  72”L

Top Sheeting

What is a top sheet?

A top sheet is a plastic film “Polyethylene”, usually 1 to 4 mil thick, that is applied to the top of a pallet load.  It can be applied manually or with an automated top sheet dispensing machine.

A top sheet is generally used in conjunction with stretch film.  With the top sheet draped over all 4 sides of the load, it is wrapped in stretch film, locking the top sheet in place.  This provides added protection to stretch wrapped pallets by helping to keep the top of the pallet clean and dry during shipping and storage.

Benefits to using top sheeting include:

  • UV Resistance
  • Tamper Resistant
  • Dust Protection
  • Moisture Protection

Advertising is another major advantage to using top sheets.  Many companies have their top sheeting printed with their company name and logo for name recognition.  It is an inexpensive way to get your company’s name seen by end-users in stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s.
