  • 48" impact at 700 lbs. Failure Type - Pallet integrity and end cap cracking Score - 10

Summary: This is an impact test with weights and distance. The test is done in 5 categories for 10 times in each category. The reason for the test is to ascertain the ability of the pallet to withstand high level impact. Pallet one completed all tests and only cracked at the highest level on the fourth try, while pallet two completed all 5 tests without cracking.
