Crate Base Custom Options
The base/deck of crates and pallets can have different configurations, based on the load to carry, the load distribution, and the best way to secure the load for transport.
• Full Base:
Deck boards are used throughout the base with no spacing between lumber. Boards used are 2x4s and 2x6s to accommodate weight of equipment.
• Full Base with Plywood:
Full base with a fitted piece of plywood on top of deck boards to help distribute the weight of large loads throughout the base.
• Half Deck:
Half decks are used to transport lighter weight equipment by leaving spaces between deck boards. This option saves on materials and transportation costs.
• Half Deck with Plywood:
Half deck, with a fitted piece of plywood on top of the deck boards ensures freight can be set and secured on a flat surface.
• Cleated Plywood Base:
Plywood base is framed with lumber adding structural support. This base can be used for loads 500 lbs. or less.
• Plywood Only:
Lightly constructed plywood base with risers to assist in movement of petite equipment.
