Lantech introduces its new easy-adjust Pallet-Grip® load locking system for its straddle stretch wrapping systems.

palletgripPallet-Grip is a patented system that locks a load to a pallet with a cable of film rolled into the bottom wraps and placed below the deck of the pallet. The new Pallet-Grip system captures any style of pallet in a wider range of heights, from four to six inches high, while retaining the ability to completely wrap to top of the load. The system places a rolled cable of film approximately 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) below the pallet deck, while the remainder of the film web captures the load above the deck.

The design rolls up the bottom film web into a cable, then places the film cable at a pre-designated point to lock the load to the pallet. And by placing the cable above the pallet fork-truck entry points, containment force is never compromised by tearing the film with the forks. The system physically locks the load to a pallet to prevent spillage and damage due to shifting. The design maintains a constant wrap force around load corners and over wings to eliminate the potential for tearing the film web.
