Heat Treated Pallets
Heat treated pallets are designed as a safe method for shipping products internationally via wooden pallets. Because many countries have strict import regulations, it’s important that wooden pallets are heat treated to avoid pests from latching onto the wood and getting transported along the way. Heat treated pallets are free from pests and are safe to use for international shipping needs, as the pests have been removed during the heating process.
Benefits of Heat Treated Pallets
The main benefits of heat treated pallets are that they are safe to use for international shipping and delivery. This is incredibly important because most countries have strict import rules on pests and live animals entering the country, and wooden crates can easily transport unwanted pests. What's more, you may not even be able to see the pests that are hiding in the wood. Treating the wood with a heating method ensures that all unwanted pests are removed immediately and the wood is safe to transport and without hazardous pests or animals. Heat treated pallets are often secured for their entire lifespan after the heat treatment, so you do not have to continue re-heating them before every use.
How to Use
When it comes to using a heat treated pallet, you can use it in the same way that you would any standard pallet. Heat treated pallets appear the same as standard pallets, but have been treated with a heating method that aims to kill off any unwanted pests with extreme temperatures. The heating method also seals the wood to prevent future pests from making their way into the wood and infesting the pallet further.
There isn’t much maintenance that goes into keeping a heat treated pallet in its prime condition. As mentioned before, once it’s been heat treated once, you don’t have to keep re-heating it to get the same level of quality and use out of it. To keep it clean, simply use a soft cloth and water to wipe away any unwanted dirt or debris. This will not compromise the integrity of the pallet’s heat treatment. After the pallets have been heat treated, we will also mark them with indicators to let you know that they’ve been heat treated, so you can distinguish them from the rest of your pallets. If you no longer have use for your pallets, you can either recycle them with us or you can burn them. Heat treated pallets are safe to burn as they do not contain any harmful chemicals.
