    What is a thermal pallet cover?

    A thermal pallet cover—also known as a thermal pallet blanket—is a semi-pliable sheet of insulated aluminum. Commonly used to keep food products and non-edible goods at a consistent temperature during transit, these covers protect against conductive, convective, and radiant heat, helping organizations save money on spoiled cargo.

    Temcore thermal blankets are designed to fit snugly over pallets of temperature-sensitive goods and protect them from exposure to cold and heat. Thermal pallet covers can be used to minimize damage to palletized goods due to the natural temperature fluctuations inside a shipping container. Before shipment, Temcore thermal covers can be draped directly over pallets and other packaging solutions to retain or reflect heat.

    What are Temcore thermal pallet covers made from?

    Thermal pallet covers from Temcore are crafted from high-quality aluminum—one of the least emissive materials available. Thanks to aluminum’s low emissivity, these thermal covers can keep your cargo at the optimal temperature throughout transit, whether it’s traveling across warm tropical waters or icy arctic waves.

    Each Temcore insulated pallet cover is also made with a heavy-duty hook and loop Velcro closure that allows for effortless installation and removal.

    How do thermal pallet covers work?

    Insulated pallet blankets combine two principles to create an optimal environment for temperature-sensitive goods: reflectivity and insulation.

    A thermal blanket for pallets has reflective properties due to the low emissivity of aluminum, which repels most of the radiant heat that occurs inside a container. Additionally, the shiny surface of a thermal pallet blanket reflects the sun’s rays to ensure goods remain at an optimal temperature—even if they have to sit outside during loading or unloading.

    The thermal lining on an insulated pallet cover also provides five-sided insulation for shipments of various sizes. The sixth side of the palletized cargo—the bottom—is isolated from the floor of the container by a wooden pallet. Because wood has a low thermal conductivity, the cargo is almost entirely protected from heat transfer. As a result, cold goods stay cold and warm goods remain warm.

    What are the benefits of a thermal pallet cover?

    First and foremost, insulating thermal pallet covers are capable of preventing radiant heat transfer and offer total reflectivity and insulation for your cargo. The protective barrier of an insulated pallet blanket keeps goods within an acceptable temperature range, eliminating the possibility of unwanted thawing, freezing, or spoilage during transit.

    Aside from protecting palletized goods from temperature fluctuations, insulated pallet covers keep products dry. When temperatures outside a shipping container fluctuate, moisture inside the container can build up on the roof and walls. Eventually, this condensation can fall as “container rain,” dripping onto cargo to cause mold, corrosion, and other forms of moisture damage.

    By keeping goods dry and at the optimal temperature, pallet blankets can greatly reduce the number of damaged goods in a shipment and improve margins on overseas freight.

    Thermal pallet blankets also contribute to sustainable shipping practices. These blankets are flexible and durable, so they can be reused numerous times without ripping. Additionally, a set of covers can replace a power-hungry refrigerated shipping container in some scenarios, further reducing a company’s logistics footprint.

    Overall, thermal pallet covers are easy to use, eco-friendly, and suitable for a wide range of shipments.

    How do I apply thermal covers on my cargo?

    Temcore thermal covers are easy to install. To protect any palletized goods, simply place the insulated pallet blanket over the cargo packaging, then use the convenient Velcro closures to secure the cover.

    Removing a pallet blanket is equally straightforward. Once the shipment reaches its destination, separate the Velcro closures and slide the cover off the cargo. Always remove a pallet insulation blanket with care, as stacked goods may have shifted during transit.

    Which industries can benefit from thermal pallet covers?

    During a transoceanic voyage, internal shipping container temperatures can range from -12 degrees Fahrenheit (-24 degrees Celsius) to 135 degrees Fahrenheit (57 degrees Celsius). Temperature fluctuations can be even more extreme on land. As such, any organization with products that must stay within a specified temperature range can take advantage of thermal blankets for pallets.

    Some of the many industries that can benefit from insulated pallet blankets include:

    • Agriculture
    • Medical Equipment/Devices
    • Food and beverage
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Industrial chemical manufacturing

    Additionally, some products—such as paints and electronics—require a temperature-controlled environment. If your business ships any goods that can be damaged by extreme heat or cold, you can use thermal pallet blankets to avoid losses.

    Do thermal pallet covers eliminate the need for a refrigerated shipping container?

    In many cases, pallet blankets are an option to consider depending on an acceptable temperature range for a shipment.

    However, a refrigerated container doesn’t necessarily eliminate the need for pallet covers. This is because temperature-sensitive goods may not stay in a refrigerated container for the entire voyage. During loading, trans-loading, and unloading, cargo can be exposed to direct heat from the sun or the asphalt in a loading zone. This external heat can damage palletized goods.

    With that in mind, if there’s a chance your goods may sit outside of their refrigerated container for any length of time, it’s worth using a pallet blanket. Plus, thermal pallet blankets act as insurance; if a refrigerated container fails during transport, covers can keep cargo atsustained temperature until the problem is resolved. With a pallet cover, insulated shipments stay insulated—even if there’s a mechanical or logistical issue.
