A COLLABORATION WITH SHARED VISION
We partnered with Zentek, an offshoot of Zentek GmbH & Co, in developing and producing smart and sustainable load carriers. Zentek envisaged the best pallet on the market: robust, durable, easy to clean, cost-effective, lightweight and sustainable. We know that function isn’t the only important attribute of a product, so we put as much effort into the look and features of the pallets as we did into the technical design: They have ergonomic handles and innovative stacking aids that make them sympathetic to manual handling and stacking.
The pallets were made out of one material: Plastic, with no metal inserts. This meant they were incredibly lightweight. The temperature resistance of the material made size fluctuation due to moisture a thing of the past. This use of materials allowed for greater dimensional accuracy for automated material flow, so that unlike wooden pallets, the risk of machine failures and injuries from splinters or protruding nails is minimal. The partially opened, hygienic deck surface and close skids mean dirt cannot settle in corners, making the pallets easy to clean in accordance with required hygiene standards.
