A wire container is a type of pallet that is a box-shaped container with a mesh structure of its entirety or its sides. Known by various names, such as mesh pallets and wire containers. They are used for storing and transporting a wide variety of goods.
Since they are generally made of metal mesh, they have the advantage of being lightweight in addition to having a load capacity comparable to that of wooden or plastic products.
Most products have relatively high corrosion resistance due to plating, etc. However, products that are transported with forklifts, etc., require caution depending on the stored items because the coating is easily scratched, which may cause a decrease in corrosion resistance.
Uses of wire containers are the same as those of ordinary pallets: storage and transportation of goods. Features of wire containers are that they can be used not only as pallets but also as containers because of their sides, and by changing the fineness of the wire mesh, it is possible to store not only large and heavy products but also light and bulky products effectively. Some products can be stacked on top of each other to serve as storage shelves.
In concrete terms, wire containers can be used for stacking products in a warehouse and then transferring them to wire pallets for display and shipping, thereby reducing the cost and time required for transferring products.
Wire containers come in a variety of specifications, so it is necessary to select the appropriate product according to the Uses of the pallet. First of all, as for the size, various sizes are available on the market, and custom-made pallets are also available, making it possible to select and design a pallet according to the intended use. The finer the mesh size, the higher the load-bearing capacity, but the weight and price of the product itself also increase, so care must be taken. Some products can be stacked or folded for storage when not in use, thus reducing storage space when not in use.
Some products are sold with casters for their external appearance, but these are basically intended to be moved manually, especially those with canopies, which are especially limited in height. Forklifts are generally not available for products without casters. Products without casters can generally be moved with forklifts, cranes, hoists, etc., and can store and transport a certain amount of heavy items. In addition, the presence or absence of a canopy, the opening points on the sides, and the opening method also vary depending on the product, so it is important to select the appropriate product according to the purpose and use.
