Pallet Durability Testing

Unit loads being carried on pallets often experience shocks that could cause damage to the package and/or the products within. Whatever happens, packages still need to protect their products in these situations. 

Pallet durability is measured thru Incline Impact testing which is designed to simulate the shocks of impacts or drops to the packages making up a unit load / palletized shipment that is too heavy to be moved manually.


Equipment used for Incline Impact Testing:
