We specialise in the manufacture of new wooden pallets at our manufacturing sites in Liverpool and Wirral.
We have comprehensive heat treatment facilities and the company is ISPM15 registered with Timcon – the timber packaging and pallet confederation.
International Phytosanitary Measures 15 (ISPM15) is an international standard for the treatment of wooden packaging to prevent the spread of pests. It is something that our customers look for to give them confidence in their supplier, and it is a standard that we have achieved since January 2005.
Euro Pallets – 1200mm x 800mm
There is a major demand for the Euro pallet here at Murrays DPS.
The essential difference between a Euro pallet and a standard pallet is size. Both are four-way, but the Euro pallet is the slightly smaller one at 1200mm x 800mm. The Euro pallet is so called because it is the standard size for use on the continent and with a width of 800mm (31in), it will fit through most normal sized doors – the most common being 850mm.
Standard UK Size Pallets – 1200mm x 1000mm
Traditionally, a four-way standard sized pallet in the UK has always been 1200mm x 1000mm. However, the meaning of the word ‘standard’ has largely been lost. Standard to a customer who deals with Europe will be the standard Euro pallet so there is room for confusion.
If we are talking to a customer about standard sized pallets, we will ask them to confirm the dimensions because we don’t want expensive misunderstandings and there is still major demand for the standard UK size pallet.
We provide all manner of bespoke pallet and packaging solutions to a wide variety of industry types from automotive to whisky distilleries. No request we receive from a client is ever impossible, we will find a way.
Our pallet and packaging designs for the automotive industry have won awards thanks to the innovative but practical way we solved a customer’s issue in safely transporting product across the country and beyond.
We manufacture racking tops to sit on your metal frames. Our product is versatile and designed to take any size of pallet – euro, standard UK and bespoke sizes can all be taken off the warehouse floor and stored in an organised manner until required.
4-way and 2-way pallets
There is demand for both 4-way and 2-way pallets so what is the difference?
The answer is in the name. A 4-way pallet can be manoeuvred by a pallet truck, or forklift, from all 4 sides whereas the 2-way pallet is accessible from only 2 sides.
Crates and Cases
We produce a large range of bespoke wooden crates and packing cases particularly for those customers who ship high value product abroad and need a safe secure environment. All our wood is ISPM Certified and will carry the appropriate stamp for a speedy passage through customs.
We will also make sure that the customer reference appears on the pallet / crate / case which can often be a simple colour code or stencil design unique to each customer.
Cardboard and Packaging
We provide all manner of bespoke cardboard and packaging solutions to a wide variety of industries such as the automotive sector. No request we receive from a client is ever impossible, we will find a way.
