When you constantly deal with the storing and transporting of goods, you may want to consider all the possible protective products out there that can help you keep the cargo in its best possible condition. When you damage the boxes or containers that your goods are in, you risk damaging the contents inside. There are many different products out there that can help you provide the protection you seek for your cargo but perhaps one of the most useful of them all is v-boards.
V-Boards are designed to protect the edges and corners of cargo, pallets and containers. Even flatbed trucks use them to help safeguard the cargo their hauling. When v-boards are used on the edges of cargo, they also act as a way to connect several boxes or containers. Once secured with straps or tie downs, your cargo will hold together more securely, allowing for a tighter fit and more security. This also makes them easier to store and transport without the worry of movement which can cause damage to the goods. Cargo that is protected with v-boards is also easier to load onto and off of a truck, forklift, dolly or other piece of machinery that helps to relocate heavy packages without physically lifting them.
In the past, aluminum and wood v-boards were more common but after careful analysis and frequent use, it was discovered that wood v-boards would gather and absorb harmful pathogens. These pathogens could contaminate the cargo and anything it came in contact with. As for aluminum v-boards, they easily become damaged after consistent use and would even cause injury to those that used them. Aluminum v-boards are also quite expensive.
Plastic v-boards are more flexible than v-boards made of wood or aluminum. They are also less risky and protect the edges and corners of your cargo better. With the variety of sizes in length, it is easy to find the v-boards you need. Plastic v-boards tend to last a lot longer and offer a more secure fit around the corners and edges of packages and cargo. They will help protect the edges of boxes, pallets and containers from tie downs, straps and other tools and gear often sued to secure the cargo for storage and transport. Since they are made of synthetic rubber, they will allow for flexibility while ensuring that the corners and edges of the box or container aren't smashed in. When the edges of boxes are smashed, it risks the condition of the contents inside and can potentially tear enough to let pests and harmful pathogens in. Depending on what you're trying to store or transport, this could ruin the entire contents harbored inside the package.
