Q. Technical definition of two-way pallet and four-way pallet
- Two-way runner pallet allows the entry of forks or hand pallet trucks from two sides only and in opposite directions. These runners do have the best strength.
- Four-way runner pallet does allow for forklift entry from all sides; however, it is a little less durable. These pallets come in two sub-categories:
- Block design pallet allows four-way entry with both forklift and hand pallet trucks.
- Notched stringer pallet design allows four-way entry only with forklift trucks, and two-way entry with hand pallet trucks.
