Detailed Description for Pallet wood

Wooden pallets typically consist of three or four stringers that support several deck-boards on top of which the goods are placed. While measuring, the first pallet is the first number in the stringer length and the second one is the deck-board length. The construction of such pallet is done in context of their uses such as general, FDA storage, chemical etc. Desired wooden types are: recycled, hard, soft or even combo (new and recycle). It is to be mentioned that discarded wooden pallets should not be used for firewood or crafts whatsoever unless it has been ensured that the wood in these pallets has not been treated with wood preservatives or fungicides etc. Additionally, imported palletized goods are routinely fumigated with highly toxic pesticides. So while using it, harmful materials or chemicals also may spill on the pallet wood and be absorbed.

Good, could be more better yet! Posted on 8/12/2016

Look out for the quality of the wood and do not put it in outside in direct exposure of water or rain. Keep it inside in some safe and closed place.
