Did you know pallets come in all types of sizes and configurations? All pallets fall into two main categories: "stringer" pallets and "block" pallets.

Stringer pallet

Stringer pallets use a frame of three or more parallel pieces of timber. The top deckboards are then mounted to the stringers to create the pallet structure. Stringer pallets can have an empty space cut into them allowing "four-way" entry.

Block pallet

Block pallets are known to be stronger than stringer pallets. Block pallets utilize both parallel and perpendicular stringers making it easier to handle and move the pallet. A block pallet is also known as a "four-way" pallet, since a pallet-jack may be used from any side to move it.
