Slip Sheets Information
Slip Sheets are very useful products within the Transport and Logistics industry. Slip Sheets are thin plastic sheets used to replace pallets, they can be supplied in a range of sizes to suit your pallet dimensions. The slip sheet is used as a unit load support device in vehicle delivery and transportation of products.
The plastic slip sheet is made from recycled high density polyethylene or polypropylene materials. This type of material allows for greater non-tear strength and an increased number of uses in cold and humid environments. Its advantages include longer sheet life, durable lips, ability to be stored in cold or humid environments, and that it can be handled by a roller conveyor, slip sheet lift truck, AGV, or powered unit load transportation devices.
