Two risers, 2″ x 4″ boards, are placed on the deck of the pallet parallel to one another. Four brake beams are then placed on the risers in a staggered pattern. Two 2″ x 4″ risers are placed on top of the first layer of beams for a total of four risers. Three additional beams are laid over the risers for a total of seven beams. Two 1.25″ non-metallic bands, one on each end of the beams, are used to secure them to the pallet.
