Heat Treating Wooden Pallets and Crates to ISPM-15: Ensuring Quality and Safety

At Fisher’s Pallets, we take pride in adhering to the highest standards in the industry. One of our key processes is the heat treatment of wooden pallets to comply with ISPM-15 regulations. But what does this mean, and what are the benefits? Let’s explore. 

We offer ISPM-15 Heat Treatment for Pallets & Crates Export.


What is ISPM-15?

ISPM-15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15) is a standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). This standard mandates that all wooden packaging materials, including pallets, must be treated to prevent the spread of pests and diseases across international borders.


Our Heat Treatment Process

We heat treat our wooden pallets by raising the core temperature of the wood to at least 56°C (132.8°F) for a minimum of 30 minutes. This process effectively eliminates harmful pests and pathogens without the use of chemicals, ensuring the pallets are safe for global shipping.


Advantages of Heat-Treated Pallets

  1. Global Compliance: Our pallets meet international shipping standards, ensuring smooth and hassle-free transportation across borders.
  2. Pest-Free: The heat treatment process eradicates pests and insects, reducing the risk of infestations and contamination.
  3. Eco-Friendly: Unlike chemical treatments, heat treatment is environmentally friendly and leaves no harmful residues.
  4. Enhanced Durability: Heat treatment can also improve the structural integrity of the wood, making the pallets more robust and long-lasting.
  5. Cost-Effective: By preventing potential issues with customs and quarantine, heat-treated pallets save time and reduce costs associated with delays and fines.
