Non slip matting or similar

Recommended Posts

Our extraction facility has introduced plastic 4 way pellets for honey they are great but one major problem for us is they slip and slide easily on our metal deck.

does anyone know what we could use under them to stop them from moving so much.

im wondering if old carpet would work ?

has anyone had the same problem and if so how did you go about fixing it

yeah they are a sod. slide off the forks and even off the pallet shifter.

carpet is not a bad idea.

however if you make it to grippy you will have trouble pushing them around on the deck. the forklift forks just slide under them so it makes it hard to nudge them into position. 

i highly recommend strapping them on extremely well. know a trucking company that had one pallet slide off the deck.

one of the local guys has screwed wooden feet to the bottom of their plastic pallets.

Thanks for the reply @tristan.

just wondering do you think a length of 4x2 down each side of the pallet and stropped on separately would work ?

using a 4x2 as a stop to stop the pallet from sliding could work. the hard part is strapping it on tight enough.

It's worth giving the carpet idea a go, if you can get some for nothing. I use carpet in the back of our ute to stop things sliding all over the show and it works very well. 

And if you find that the carpet doesn't work you can always use it in your garden to stop the weeds from growing. ?

They come to us on both wooden and metal decks

we've not had too much problem with them but maybe if

you glue some butanol with contact adhesive to the bottom of them

in the corners it might help. My guess is that it would peel off

quite quickly though. 4x2 might be an option although when a metal beck is whet

I've seen 4x2 slipping around a bit as well.
