EPAL pallets

EPAL PALLET AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

The wooden pallet, denoted by the term EPAL pallet, got its name from the EPAL association (European Pallet Association). It is an association of pallet manufacturers from European countries that produce standardized pallets called EPAL pallets. The dimensions of the pallets, for which the EUR-EPAL label is also used, are 1200 x 800 x 144 mm (euro pallets). The advantage of such standardization is uniformity in logistics and transport, which significantly lowers costs and simplifies the process. In addition to the dimensions, EPAL pallets are also protected against various insects and other harmful organisms that could be transported from place to place, from continent to continent, using wooden packaging.

EPAL PALLETS – WOOD PROTECTION AGAINST PESTS

The standard dimension of the EPAL palette has resulted in easier international use and simpler cooperation. Precisely because of international use and exchange, wooden pallets are ideal for the inadvertent spread of diseases and various pests (for example, the Asian weevil). The international standard ISPM15 specifies that wooden packaging must be heated to 56 °C in the core of the thickest piece for at least 30 minutes. EPAL pallets are thus suitable for international transport, as all pests that could represent a potential danger are destroyed in a harmless way and without chemicals. All pallets that comply with this standard have this clearly marked in a visible place. EPAL pest control pallets must not be fumigated with methane bromide.
