As a major pallet provider, Millwood Inc. has its pulse on the pain points for pallet users, and the company has just begun offering the Product Protector. This product is designed to prevent pallets and unit loads from being destroyed when colliding with a fork tine.
The Product Protector is a solid steel frame with a rubber bumper that attaches to a forklift. Instead of destroying a pallet when a fork tine moves too hard or fast, the Product Protector impacts the stringer before the deck boards are damaged by the fork tine.
“Steel against wood – steel always wins,” said Ralph Rupert, manager of unit load technologies for Millwood. “The Product Protector’s rubber bumpers even the playing field so wood wins, which means less deck board damage, wood splinters and housekeeping – everyone wins.”
The device is small, weighing only 37 lbs. and measuring 16.25 inches wide. Don’t let the size fool you, it can easily sustain 30,000 lbs. of impact without failure. The zinc coating on the solid steel prevents corrosion, ensuring that the device is both economically and fiscally sustainable.
Reducing pallet damage also decreases product damage and unsaleables. The Product Protector can be purchased through Millwood’s sales staff or online at https://www.libertydirect.com/product-protector.
