What are Post Pallets and Stillages?

Steel stillages are heavy-duty steel pallets of various types. They all have one thing in common: stillages act as a platform to raise stored goods off the ground and to keep items separate during storage and transit. Some stillages have solid or cage/mesh sides, whereas post pallets have no sides, just posts.
A post pallet is a stackable steel stillage with a rectangular base. These items have no sides, a post at each corner, and cupped feet for easy stacking. They are used for storage and transportation, particularly for larger, bulkier items. Post pallets are valued in warehousing environments and often used for semi-permanent storage.
Palletower’s steel post pallet stillages are available in two different finishes:
The Palletower range of post pallet stillages consists of four size options: small, medium, large, and standard. Standard matches the size of a traditional wooden pallet.
Base sizes range from 1015 x1115mm to 2030 x 1060mm.
The following post length options are available:
Load strength varies across the different pallet sizes, with a maximum weight capacity per stillage of 800kg to 1000kg.
All post pallets are stillages, but not all stillages are post pallets. The word “stillage” is a generic term for heavy-duty steel pallets and boxes of various types. In contrast, post pallets are only one type: sideless stillages with posts and cupped feet.
Post pallets tend to be used for the storage and transportation of larger, bulkier items, including those that are already on wooden pallets or in plastic crates. Post pallets can be stacked up to four high, making them the ideal solution for goods that would occupy too much floor space otherwise.
