IoT Connected

Cost Effective

Logistically Optimized

Built for Heavy Loads

Ideal for the Cold Chain

Naturally Fire Resistant

Hygienic

Consistent Spec and Quality

Environmentally Friendly

Made of a composite material that’s stronger than steel by weight, BLOCKpal pallets have an edge rack capacity of 6,500 lbs., more than twice that of other pallets, greatly reducing the risk of product damage or employee injury due to pallet failure. Independently tested to ISO 8611 and ASTM D 1185 standards and under the Virginia Tech Center for Packaging and Unit Load Design protocols to greater levels of durability than any widely available or comparable alternative.
Constructed with pultruded glass fiber reinforced composite, resistant to rupturing, fracturing, bending and deflection. Precise, automated construction ensures consistent dimensions (maximum allowed dimensional deviation is 0.635 MM).
Low profile runners and wide, 4-way fork openings make for easy handling; non-slip coating on both sides of top deck offering greater coefficient of friction in ambient environments for both product and forklift tines.
Non-porous surface resistant to moisture, bacteria, pests and chemicals; easily cleaned with no heat treatment nor caustic chemical cleaning agents required.
Every BLOCKPal pallet features embedded ELIoT™ technology. Location and condition data are collected by sensor and transmitted to the cloud via the LTE-M network, making visible the pallet’s location and condition both indoors and in transit without requiring any additional hardware or IT development.
Low profile 5.0″ height allows 90 more BLOCKpal pallets per backhaul truckload, reducing transportation costs by 17%, and weight of 55 lbs. vs. an average of 70 lbs. for other block pallets makes both handling and transport more efficient.
o -40° to 176° F tolerance range exceeds that of other pallets by more than 20° in each direction, so it won’t become brittle in cold environments or flexible in hot environments for dependable performance in a variety of conditions.
Constructed of FM4996 certified, naturally fire-resistant material with no carcinogenic additives.

IoT CONNECTED

Every BLOCKPal pallet features embedded autonomous IoT sensor technology

COST EFFECTIVE

BLOCKPal pricing available per-trip or as a fixed monthly rental fee

Minimize missing and lost pallets with embedded location tracking (0.3% average loss rate vs. 2% for other pooled pallets)

Eliminate administrative burden and cost of pallet accounting with automated tracking

Reduce transportation, handling, and packaging costs by up to $1.53/pallet

LOGISTICALLY OPTIMIZED

Reduce transportation costs by 17% with low profile 5.0″ height vs. 5.67″ for other block pallets, allowing 90 more BLOCKpal pallets per backhaul truckload

Weighing 55 lbs. vs. an average of 70 lbs. for other block pallets, BLOCKpal pallets are easier to handle and more efficient to transport

Non-slip coating on both sides of top deck offering greater coefficient of friction in ambient environments for both product and forklift tines

4-way forklift entry

Rounded corners facilitate shrink wrapping

BUILT FOR HEAVY LOADS

Made of composite material that’s stronger than steel by weight

Edge rack capacity of 6,500 lbs., more than twice that of other pallets, greatly reducing risk of pallet failure

In the unlikely event of pallet failure, BLOCKpal’s bottom boards are designed to fail first, maintaining the integrity of the top deck boards and protecting product

IDEAL FOR THE COLD CHAIN

-40° F to 176° F tolerance range exceeds that of other pallets by more than 20° F in each direction

Won’t become brittle in cold environments or flexible in hot environments for dependable performance in a variety of conditions

NATURALLY FIRE RESISTANT

FM4996 certified

Naturally fire-resistant material with no carcinogenic additives

HYGIENIC

Nonporous material is naturally resistant to bacteria, chemicals, and pests

Non-shedding material does not produce dust or debris, eliminating risk of foreign material from pallet

Pallets are sanitized at one of RM2’s three cleaning facilities in an ISO 22000 standard two-step cleaning process which includes disinfection and results in ATP readings of 50 or below

Pallets are swabbed and RLU readings are recorded and made available to customers for a full hygienic audit trail equipment sanitation prior to deployment

CONSISTENT SPEC AND QUALITY

Maximum allowed dimensional deviation is 0.025″

Rigid material maintains structural integrity with minimal deflection on the top deck

Composite construction uses no nails

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Pooling model with 150+ lifetime uses means just 20% as many BLOCKPal pallets are required to deliver the same number of total pallet trips, reducing raw material consumption

Embedded IoT tracking device identifies each pallet’s location and effectively minimizes pallet loss, reducing waste

Component-level repairs minimize need for recycling of entire pallet, but when necessary, the composite material from which the BLOCKPal is constructed can be reground and sold for use in construction applications

Reduced Global Warming Potential by 21%, driven mainly by BLOCKPal’s lower weight

Reduced Primary Energy Demand by 50%

Reduced Acidification Potential by 31% and Eutrophication Potential by 44%
