Locator Boards - a system of plastic inter-layer boards for the pallet-less logistics of kegs
Locator Boards (LBs) from Brewery Plastics Inc are durable plastic inter-layer boards which are designed to fit between the rows of steel kegs, built into a stack. They have a low height profile, which works to lower the space requirements when stacking kegs. Positioning rings for each keg combine with raised retention segments to ensure kegs stay securely in place, whether the entire load is stationary or in motion; whether the kegs are filled to capacity and maximum weight, or empty.
Don't let this happen to your kegs - Invest in genuine Transit Layer Boards from Brewery Plastics, when storing and transporting your kegs.
Unique ring patterns are designed into LBs corresponding to common arrangements for each size of kegs. These rings patterns acts to specifically position each keg, allowing modified fork lift tines to fit the gaps between kegs, as well as around the outside of the kegs. The tines can then grip the bodies of the kegs, such that LBs combine with top mounted indexing clamps, to create a completely pallet-less system for lifting, stacking and transporting kegs.
The strength of the plastic LBs from BPI is evidenced by the ability to stack full kegs up to 9 rows high, in a static load.
