Keep block pallets in good shape with the LX40B pointGUARD® Protector.

Block pallets are quickly becoming the preferred style of pallets for many companies. They have true 4-way entry, meaning that it can be accessed easily from all four sides. If built correctly, they can also hold a lot of weight, including in a suspended rack situation. If you are one of the companies that prefers this design and you have reusable, captive pallets in your facility, then you'll need to check out the LX40B pointGUARD® Protector.

It's designed to encase the 40" side of a 48" x 40" heavy duty block pallet, keeping the top and bottom lead boards as well as the end of the blocks defended from constant forklift hits. They screw into the ends with several 2" screws and will add ample turns to your pallet life. Take a look at our FasTrack testing results from Virginia Tech's Center for Packaging and Unit Load Design (CPULD). They found that the LX40B protector increased the lifespan of standard wooden pallets by 420%!
