What is a top sheet?
A top sheet is a plastic film “Polyethylene”, usually 1 to 4 mil thick, that is applied to the top of a pallet load. It can be applied manually or with an automated top sheet dispensing machine.
A top sheet is generally used in conjunction with stretch film. With the top sheet draped over all 4 sides of the load, it is wrapped in stretch film, locking the top sheet in place. This provides added protection to stretch wrapped pallets by helping to keep the top of the pallet clean and dry during shipping and storage.
Benefits to using top sheeting include:
- UV Resistance
- Tamper Resistant
- Dust Protection
- Moisture Protection
Advertising is another major advantage to using top sheets. Many companies have their top sheeting printed with their company name and logo for name recognition. It is an inexpensive way to get your company’s name seen by end-users in stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s.
