Getting To Know Retention Units

A new addition to our product range is our strong, sturdy and reliable retention units. Here’s everything you need to know about retention units, and how they can be useful for your business.

What are retention units?

Retention units are one of the most cost-effective ways of protecting products on pallets. Retention units convert standard and euro sized timber pallets into efficient and practical storage cages. The mesh wireframes are made to be fully collapsible when not being used. They fold flat to save space and make storage easy, making them incredibly efficient for warehouses and storerooms.

Stackable and Non-Stackable Retention Units

The AB Handling pallet retention units help make a traditional storage solution even smarter and safer. Transform a classic pallet into a sturdy, high-capacity storage cage. Give your products additional protection and stack your retention units safely up to four units high. Choose from the Euro Pallet Stackable Retention Unit or the 2 Way Access Stackable Retention Unit, as well as our Non-Stackable Retention Unit.

Easily Accessible

Our retention units offer easy access to the goods held within a pallet through removable and hinged gates. The steel wire mesh frames fit neatly onto pallets and are held in position with the retaining clips. Units can be fitted to wooden pallets as well as a range of plastic pallets.

3 Features of retention units

1. Safety

Both products and people stay protected from bumps, scratches, and falls. Help keep bulky, loose, and awkwardly-shaped items secure with retention units.

    2. Space Saving

    Our retention units help you make the most of your space, and are stackable up to four units high. When not in use our retention units are fully collapsible and take up minimal space by folding flat, making them ideal for all sorts of transport logistics.

      3. Accessible

      The rigid & reinforced steel mesh structure of the retention cages helps keep your products contained and easily visible. This allows you to complete manual checks and inspections easily. We provide a combination of full or half drop gates on up to four sides, making it easy to retrieve items when needed.
