A sustainable and optimum utilisation of storage and transport space requires space-saving load carriers that are also robust and durable. With the NP1 Euro pallet, the Craemer Group, one of the world's leading manufacturers of logistics solutions with over 60 years of experience in plastics processing, has expanded its range to include a nestable, lightweight, and robust plastic pallet made of high-quality polyethylene (PE) that fulfils the highest logistical requirements.

The NP1 lightweight pallet in Euro dimensions (1200 x 800 x 146 mm) is injection-moulded in one piece, with nine step-shaped feet and locking pins in the feet cavities of the top deck. These features create a sophisticated stacking system, which enables exact and secure nestability as well as effortless manual nesting and de-nesting. Recesses in the entry openings of all sides also allow easy de-nesting with forklift trucks.

Space-saving solution for storage and transport

One of the main advantages of nestable pallets is their significant volume reduction in transport and storage when stacked empty. This saves freight costs and storage space, thus increasing the cost-effectiveness of each pallet loop. Compared to other nestable lightweight pallets on the market, the NP1 plastic pallet from Craemer is heavier at 8.5 kilograms but offers reliable stability and durability in daily use. The NP1 is entirely made form high-quality PE and can be 100% recycled at the end of its service life.

The NP1 plastic pallet is the ideal load carrier for all applications that require space-saving solutions, especially in retail and supermarket environments. For use in the fruit and vegetable sector, openings in the top deck of the one-piece injection moulded NP1 pallet ensure sufficient air circulation and thus ventilation of the goods.  This significantly minimises the risk of rot or mould.  

Secure hold thanks to Palgrip® anti-slip pads

As an experienced manufacturer of high-quality plastic pallets, Craemer has developed Palgrip®, a unique anti-slip coating technology. The NP1 plastic pallet also features innovative Palgrip® elements in the form of 24 injection-moulded, abrasion-resistant anti-slip pads on the upper deck of the pallet. They offer efficient slip resistance and reliably secure the load, even in an inclined position or in damp conditions. Optional retrofittable anti-slip plugs on the lower deck secure the pallet when handled with a forklift. Thanks to two integrated film slots on each of the long sides, loads wrapped in stretch film can be secured. The end knot of the film is simply hooked into the slot.

Reinforcement profiles increase bending stiffness

The nestable NP1 pallet has a payload capacity of 2500 kilograms and a dynamic load capacity of 1000 kilograms. Two optional reinforcement profiles increase bending stiffness of the longitudinal sides when handled with forklift or pallet trucks; the addition of optional transponders with radio frequency identification (RFID) turns plastic pallets into traceable “intelligent” information carriers. Further quality features are different rim options and a temperature resistance from minus 30°C to plus 40°C, briefly up to +90°C.
