During the first trial, 29 pallets were stacked up to 2.4 metres high and were protected with stretch wrap and edge protection. Pallet 1 had been used as a carry pallet to statically carry a weight of 1,400 kg for 4 months. By the end of this period, no compression or crushing evidence of feet was evident. As part of the trial, the pallet was moved with a fork truck. The edges of the pallet were straight and held the load rigid, with no evidence of buckling, nor stress on the pallet edges.
In trial 2, a pallet was placed in a cooler and another one in a freezer as carry pallets during a period of 8 months. The bottom pallet profile seemed to show some signs of repetitive fork entry damage but remained stable. Pallets typically weigh in excess of 1,000 kgs and after 8 months neither pallet showed any signs of humidity moisture breakdown in the paper, delamination or collapse.
