Title (EN) PALLET WITH FLEXIBLE TENSILE REINFORCEMENT AND METHOD FOR MAKING THE SAME
(FR) PALETTE AVEC RENFORCEMENT RESISTANT SOUPLE ET SON PROCEDE DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A reinforced pallet (20) and method for making the same are disclosed. The pallet (20) includes a body (28) having a pair of laterally spaced apart edge portions (56) with a central span (60) extending therebetween. A flexible tensile member (26) extends between the edge portions (56) and generally beneath the central span (60). The tensile member (26) may be in the form of a mesh affixed between upper and lower decks (22, 24) of the pallet (20). When the edge portions (56) of the pallet (20) are simply supported and a load is placed atop the pallet (20), the central span (60) of the pallet (20) will vertically deflect in response to the load. The central span (60) will bear upon the tensile member (26) with the tensile member providing support against deflection. A method for retrofitting a pallet (200) includes adding a tensile member (210) to the pallet (200) to reduce the amount of deflection of the pallet (200) when simply supported in response to a load placed atop the pallet (200).
(FR) Palette renforcée (20) et son procédé de fabrication. La palette (20) comporte un corps (28) incluant une paire de parties de bordure à espacement latéral (56) avec une allée centrale (60) s'étendant entre elles. Un élément résistant souple (26) s'étend entre les parties de bordure (56) et généralement sous l'allée centrale (60). L'élément résistant (26) peut prendre la forme d'un réseau fixé entre les plans supérieur et inférieur (22, 24) de la palette (20). Lorsque les parties de bordure (56) de la palette (20) sont simplement supportées et qu'une charge est placée au-dessus de la palette (20), l'allée centrale (60) de la palette (20) subira un fléchissement vertical sous l'action de la charge. L'allée centrale (60) pèsera sur l'élément résistant (26), l'élément résistant assurant un appui contre le fléchissement. Est également décrit un procédé d'adaptation d'une palette (200) consistant à ajouter à la palette un élément résistant (210) pour réduire l'importance du fléchissement de la palette (200) simplement supportée sous l'effet d'une charge placée au-dessus la palette (200).
