Fire-retardant pallets from ORBIS now available in Proliant™! ORBIS® Corporation has developed Proliant™, a fire-retardant plastic material for use in its family of fire-retardant plastic pallets. It is approved by Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FM) in meeting fire rating requirements equivalent to wood pallets. These pallets are traditionally known to meet Factory Mutual Insurance standards for commodity classification of idle plastic pallets and NFPA 13/2000 requirements.
Along with FM approval, Proliant is also FDA compliant, providing the necessary compliance for food and beverage processors that require fire-retardant pallet solution for their plants. Regulatory compliance evaluation was conducted with the Proliant material in accordance to the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food contact regulations (21 CFR citations), Food Contact Notifications, Threshold of Regulations (TOR), Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS inventory) and Prior-Sanctioned Lists.
ORBIS first offered fire-retardant pallets in 2005 and now offers the largest selection, around 19 different designs, of FM-approved fire-retardant plastic pallets, all now available in Proliant material. Proliant is a halogen- and bromine-free material that is fully recyclable. These pallets offer improved hygiene, durability, strength and rackability, while outperforming alternative pallets, resulting in a lower cost-per-trip.
