Loads sliding off their pallet is a frequent cause of product damage, but there is something you can do to help prevent it.
Wrapping down to the bottom of the pallet, or simply bunching up some film for a “rope” of sorts is not enough.
We recommend rolling the film into a tight cable (so it doesn’t unravel like ropes can) and placing that cable about an inch below the pallet’s deck boards. The placement of the cable is important because it can be avoided by the forks of a pallet jack or forklift. When film is wrapped to the bottom of a pallet, it is punctured by forks when handled. This puncture can tear up the side of the load, resulting in reduced containment force and possible load failure.
