LWSP DESIGN PARAMETERS

LWSP DESIGN PARAMETERS

LWSP MEANS LIGHT WEIGHT STEEL PALLET.

Apart from the natural structural qualities and benefits of the pre-galvanized material the basic essential requirements to go forward on a step by step basis were:

    1. Design to satisfy varying load capacities
    2. Design to use minimum amount of steel to reduce cost
    3. Design for simplicity and ease and economy of manufacture
    4. Design to be environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable
    5. Design for replaceable parts – repairability
    6. Design for capability and compatibility to suit major international standards
    7. Design for use in all areas where timber pallets are used
    8. Design for minimum components
    9. Design for various fastening methods
    10. Design for allowing composite additions
    11. Design for ultimate strength matched to best end price
    12. Design for patentability
    13. Design to better all other profile possibilities and improvements
    14. Design for fastening protrusions to be recessed and hidden
    15. Design for minimum surface contact 70%
    16. Design for improving co-efficient of friction
    17. Design for expansion / contraction in width, length and height
    18. Provide for add-ons e.g. a cage system to provide an IBC unit
    19. Design to minimise cavities where contaminates are deposited and held
    20. Design for a price point between hardwood pallet and plastic pallet pricing

THAT STARTED IN 2003.

IN 2018 IT ENDED

A SLEEPING VOLCANO
