  • Reinforcement of the damage-prone areas of wood pallet stringers with metal connector plates (MCPs) may increase useful pallet life or permit use of less desirable wood species. This will improve the utiliza- tion of our timber resources and landfill space. Whole pallets and individual stringers, reinforced at the inner notches, were tested in static bending. Stringer end segments, reinforced on the sides, were tested for resistance to fork tine impact. Reinforced stringers had greater strength… CONTINUE READING
