Roll Pallets by definition are mobile cages, used as a convenient method of moving and transporting a whole variety of goods and products, efficiently and safely within a warehouse environment or between various destinations. They are used widely throughout supply chains within retail, warehousing, storage and logistics industries.

Knowing Your Roll Pallets from Your Roll Cages

Roll Pallets are often called Roll Cages, although not to be confused with Roll Cages used in vehicles! They are often referred to as Roll Containers, Cage Trolleys, Logistic Cages, Retail Cages or Warehouse Roll Cages; whatever you know them by, they all essentially perform the same function.

Styles and Sizes

Palletower’s range of Roll Pallets are available in more than 40 design styles and varying sizes to accommodate the vast array on environments in which they are used. The range includes their market leading design A-Frame Nestable Roll Pallet with hinge sides allowing them to neatly fold and nested together with other roll pallets, saving valuable space. Also, within the range is the Demountable Roll Cage, allowing the sides to be fully removed from the base, again offering the convenience of their space saving properties when not in use. Boltable Roll Pallets come with the sides fixed to the base as a permanent feature to increase the strength and robustness of the design. Palletower’s extended range includes:
