Material-Handling.com/Cherry’s Industrial Equipment Features a Wide Selection of Top-Quality Aluminum Pallets

Materal-Handling.com is the e-commerce extension of Cherry's Industrial Equipment. Cherry’s Industrial is your headquarters for pallets made from 6005/T5 tempered aluminum extrusion. We carry lightweight aluminum pallets that offer durability and stability. Our pallets provide a user-friendly solution for transporting equipment, tools, parts and containers. The fire-resistant property of aluminum adds an extra measure of safety to a factory environment. You’ll find aluminum pallets in numerous types, sizes and price points to meet every need and budget.

Aluminum Pallets Provide Extensive Features and Benefits

Our aluminum pallet products are designed to be:

  • Exceptionally Strong: Despite their relatively light weight, our aluminum pallets are remarkably strong and durable — aluminum has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all the materials used in pallet manufacturing.
  • Easily Maintained: Aluminum pallets are simple to maintain and repair, which ensures low long-term ownership costs.
  • Hygienic Design: You can easily clean and sterilize your aluminum pallets via the application of high-temperature steam.
  • Fireproof: Aluminum is a flame-retardant material that will not burn — it can withstand temperatures of up to 300°F without sustaining structural damage.
  • Rot and Warp Proof: Wood pallets tend to rot and warp over time. Aluminum pallets will maintain their structural integrity for as long as you own them.
  • Long Lasting: You can expect your aluminum pallets to last much longer than traditional wood pallets, which means you won’t need to bear the cost of frequent replacement.
  • Environmentally friendly: When it’s time to discard your aluminum pallets, they won’t end up in landfills — aluminum is a recyclable material that also delivers high scrap value. Wood pallets are not as sustainable in the long term because of their limited ability for ongoing use, and creating new wood pallets from raw materials could have an impact on wooded environments.

Lightweight vs. Heavy Aluminum Pallets

While many people view aluminum as a lighter metal, not all aluminum pallets are created equal. A "standard" aluminum pallet is good for general-purpose material handling applications involving loads weighing up to 3,000 lbs. Adding more weight could jeopardize the stability of the load, especially when transporting goods or equipment over rough or uneven surfaces. If you need something a bit stronger, you can also find medium-duty pallets with a dynamic load capacity of up to 4,000 lbs. This option introduces additional weight, which may require the use of more powerful transport machinery.

At the high end of the spectrum, you can select aluminum pallets that can accommodate loads weighing up to 5,000 lbs. These pallets typically feature stronger mitered corners and an eight-post construction that provides extra support.

Where Can You Use Aluminum Pallets?

Aluminum pallets are gaining widespread use in a wide range of shipping storage and warehousing environments. Because aluminum is a fireproof material, the pallets are a popular choice when handling any type of flammable or combustible products. Industries that can take advantage of this characteristic include chemical manufacturing and petroleum. Some consumer goods material handling operations can benefit from aluminum pallets because there are no concerns about broken edges or splinters causing damage to the goods.

Aluminum pallets are an excellent option for any industry where sanitation is essential — there is little risk of bacterial contamination, assuming the users wash them thoroughly and follow proper hygiene procedures.
