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 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.
BPI has created TLB designs for most common keg types including
US kegs with chimb OD of 395mm
EURO kegs with chimb OD of 395mm
Slim Keg US 1/4 bbl
Slim Keg 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.
Don't let this happen to your kegs - Invest in genuine Transit Layer Boards from Brewery Plastics, when storing and transporting your kegs.
This footage shows the inherent benefits of the Transit Layer Board, to deliver improved safety and efficiency. You can see the value of the top TLB in preventing the empty kegs from tumbling off the top of the stack. You can imagine that with just minimal strapping, the situation would improve even further. Filled kegs would also benefit from our system. Watch here
