Hygiene and strength optimised in new flow-through pallet design

Hygiene and strength optimised in new flow-through pallet design

A new plastic pallet offering optimum hygiene and strength has joined the range offered by

Manufactured from recycled high density polyethylene by SmartFlow and available exclusively in the UK through, the SF 1210 M3R and M5R has a 100% flow through design.

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of, said: “Cleanliness and strength are two key offerings with this new pallet and, thanks to the smooth and robust design, both will be maintained with use. The SF 1210 M3R and M5R is not porous – it physically cannot absorb any liquid it comes into contact with – and its smooth shape gives nowhere for contaminants to hide and multiply. With demand increasing for solutions where hygiene can’t be compromised, there is further peace of mind in the open structure of this pallet, which makes it easy to clean efficiently, and it is fully recyclable.”

With no ridges, joins or wood grain to trap dirt, it is ideal for food and pharmaceutical applications where clean handling and storing is a priority. It includes the option of reinforcing metal bars, doubling its racking capacity from 500kg in rack to 900 – 1000 kg. Depending on the number of runners, the SF 1210 comes in at a weight of 13.5kg (M3R, with three runners) and 14kg (M5R, with five runners).

As a multi-way pallet for light and medium weight products and a one-way solution for products which have to be stored in racks, the SF 1210 M3R and M5R pallet measures 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 150mm (H). It is available without a rim, with a 7mm rim, and even a 22mm rim, which is the perfect choice for the automotive industry.
