Heat Treated pallets are generally used for the Export of goods outside Europe. The Heat Treating process is to ISPM15 – a worldwide standard – and is to prevent the possibility of disease or infestation of parasites from the wood into Countries which are concerned as to the contamination risks posed to Animals or the Environment.
We stock 1200 x 1000mm and 1200 x 800mm (Standard or Euro sizes) and supply them with Certification which you will require to accompany any export/shipping documents.
It is always possible to provide a Bespoke Pallet/s to an ISPM standard but as these need to be built to specific sizes and quantities additional time may be required.
Pallets which have been heat treated bear a branding stamp on at least 2 sides of the pallet with the authorised dealer treatment number. This is an establishment which has been inspected and approved by The Forestry Commission. Please see their site for further information and a list of Countries which require this treatment process.
