This packaging standard consists of a solid wooden box made from hardwood. This box is the same size as a 40″ x 48″ standard pallet, but is fully enclosed so that parts cannot fall through any spaces in the base of the box.
The bottom is made from three 4″ x 4″ stringers that are covered in �” plywood. The sides are made from �” sheathing surrounded by 1-1/4″ non-metallic strapping. The top is either enclosed in wood, or covered in plastic to protect the contents from weather.
Although the number of pieces and gross weight will vary depending on the length of the handhold, the 20″ grab would be packaged in a quantity of 640 with a gross product weight of 1600 lbs.
