Transit Layer Boards (TLBs) - building on the benefits of space savings and stack stability, from plastic inter-layer boards for beer kegs
A development of the successful Locator Board product line, plastic Transit Layer Boards (TLBs) were created to bring the benefits of low profile inter-layer boards, to keg users who need to retain an unmodified fork lift truck, with standard lifting tines. TLBs sit between the layers of kegs in a stack and deliver the same value added properties of lower stack heights and stability of kegs within stacks, as do LBs. TLBs reduce the reliance on wooden pallets down to a single 4-way entry pallet at the base.
With dimensions matched to the foot print of commonly used pallets ( ie EURO pallets and GMA pallets ) TLBs have proven their value in various freight scenarios, including sea freight inside common shipping containers like 20 footer and 40 footer FCLs.
BPL has created TLB designs for most common keg types including
EURO kegs and US kegs with chimb OD of 395mm
DIN kegs with chimb OD of 363mm
Slim Keg 278 designs, including US 1/4 bbl
Slim Keg 235 designs, including US 1/6 bbl
Another benefit of plastic TLBs is their ability to nest when not in use, meaning a pile of nested TLB's takes up only a fraction of the height needed for an equivalent number of stacked empty pallets.
