Heat-treated Pallets for Export

If you’re in the export business, the last thing you want is a quarantine hold-up. Delays usually happen when the pallets contain pests, fungi, or parasites lurking inside the timber. The longer your pallets wait in quarantine, the more prolonged your wait to get products on shelves, negatively impacting your bottom line. You can resolve this problem with heat-treated export pallets from Waterstone Holdings.

Heat treatment is one of several methods guaranteed to treat insects or fungi hidden in wooden pallets. It is also the most cost-effective treatment of raw wood to eradicate infestations and avoid contamination.

International Standard

We ensure that every heat-treated pallet we supply complies with the ISPM 15 Standard. The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) developed this standard and requires the marking of pallets with an HT stamp to verify the origin and heat treatment.

ISPM 15 is an essential preventative countermeasure to prevent delays for all inbound and outbound shipments due to timber packaging.

Kiln Heat Treatment

Heat treatment of wooden pallets involves placing them in a kiln where the temperature is high enough to kill any pests in the wood. It is a safe method that doesn’t weaken the structural integrity of the wooden packaging product.

Another benefit is that heat treatment is environmentally friendly, as it prevents the spread of pests and insects into other parts of the world. It also protects the end-user since no hazardous chemicals are involved.
