Difference between pairs and singles?

Most of the Rollguard fibre cradles arrive as a pair. The cradles are produced in pairs for efficient manufacturing and ease of use.  Cradles will need to be separated at the perforation line by folding back and forth and pulling apart from the sides rather than front to back.  Separated portions of the fibre cradles are used for support on the pallet and on top of the last layer of rolled goods.  Pairs are folded over in between layers to provide stability and roll protection throughout the entire pallet.

How do I find what fibre cradle matches the best with my product and application?

Use our “Pallet Configurator” to find out what size cradle you require. You will need to know how many rolls you want per layer, the pallet width, and the roll diameter.  After you determine the fibre cradle, contact Rollguard Sales Department to acquire a quote.
