Plastic Slip Sheets
Plastic slip sheets are sheets of thick plastic with a 3-6 inch lip (referred to as a pull tab) on one or more sides. They are handled using specialized push/pull attachments mounted on forklift trucks.
Repsco plastic slip sheets are a practical, economical and environmentally sound alternative to wood pallets and fiber slip sheets. Made primarily of recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE), Repsco plastic slip sheets are designed to replace or supplement wood pallets in transportation and warehouse applications. Twice as strong as fiber sheets, Repsco plastic slip sheets are the reusable, recyclable answer to the high cost of shipping and storage.
Slip sheets cost about 85 percent less than wood pallets, less space is needed for storage and in transport, and their light weight reduces transportation costs. They are recyclable in a closed-loop system such as Repsco’s GREEN & GOLD initiative.
Slip sheets work best for merchandise with a heavy uniform case pack, products which “cube out nicely,” according to Lee Bandlow, logistics manager at Home Depot, one of the pioneer companies in slip sheet usage. They have been used successfully in the food and beverage industry for more than two decades. Because they’re moisture and bacteria resistant, plastic slip sheets are ideal for ocean-bound container shipping.
