For the perfectionists, the sight of a film tail dangling from the side of a wrapped pallet is enough to set the teeth on edge. And, honestly, they’re absolutely right to be irritated. A pallet wrap tail isn’t just a bad look – they can be time-consuming, costly and altogether dangerous too.
Pallet film tails often occur in ambient or cooler environments when the tack on the film is not strong enough to do the job when the temperature drops.
Occasionally when hand wrapping, a wrap tail can be left dangling. Once the pallet moves away from the wrap process a number of things can go wrong due to this loose end.
