In this blog post, we will discuss the use of slip sheets to transport items. In particular, it is a better option than traditional pallets in some cases and not as good for others.
When choosing slip sheets, there are several things to know.
You need to know what type of load it will be transporting. Next, you need to know what size your Slip sheets are. Then, you need to pick out the suitable adhesive for them if required, and lastly, how many will be necessary per sheet depending on weight.
Look at the weight and strength needed for the loads that will go on them. Slipsheets are available in three different load range categories; light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty.
Next, make sure the sheets fit tightly together to prevent any slipping or moving of loads while transporting them.
Choose an adhesive if needed. This is typically only done when using slip sheets for non-pallet loads like skids or containers. It is recommended to use the adhesive that will work best for these applications and how much you need a per sheet, depending on the weight of the load.
In conclusion, slip sheets are an excellent option for transporting items. However, you need to be aware of the load they will carry and the weight requirements required to choose the right ones for your application.
