Why Do Pallets Need to Be Heat Treated?
By heat-treating pallets, you ensure that they become sterile and decontaminated. Due to the nature of the wood that pallets are made out of, pallets can be susceptible to becoming infested with insects like termites and woodworm. The only way to guarantee that these insects are not present in pallets is to heat treat them to ISPM 15 standards. The team at Sligo Pallets offers heat treated pallets to ISPM 15 standards from our headquarters in Sligo, using a professional pallet oven to sterilise, decontaminate, and ensure hygiene when it comes to pallet production. Heat treated pallets are vital for the transport of sterile products including food, pharmaceuticals, and health & safety equipment.
