Types of Pallets

No two wood pallets are the same.  There are countless different types of wood, different lengths and widths, different numbers of cross-boards; but pallets pretty consistently fall into one of these three styles of construction.

2 Way Stringer Pallets


4 Way Stringer Pallets


Purely based on the weight of the pallet, it is sometimes possible to determine whether it is a soft or hardwood construction (softwood pallets are significantly lighter), however; without being an expert on wood grains and hues, it is difficult to tell different types of wood apart.
