TOPPSafe™ Pallet Top
TOPPSafe™ is a 100% paper-based pallet top, designed to provide a safe and recyclable alternative to traditional pallet tops.
The pallet top is made with a Hexacomb structure inside and it secures pallet loads during transport and prevents them from shifting. Moreover, it serves as a protective layer for the products that are on top of the pallet.
The Hexacomb structure makes this pallet top just as strong as traditional alternatives that are made from for example wood or plastic. Thanks to the angleboards it easily withstands the pressure of strapping bands.
Meeting industry standards can be challenging
Industry standards such as BRC, AIB, and ISO assure consumers that products & services meet the highest standards and that food safety is the number one priority. Food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies face similar challenges when it comes to hygiene in their production facilities.
For example, it may be necessary to unload and unpack incoming and outgoing transport outside the production area, where traditional wooden pallets and pallet tops are replaced with clean, compliant alternatives. Meeting these standards can be a big challenge, but thanks to TOPPSafe™ it belongs to the past!
Working with TOPPSafe™ is safe and simple
Preventing work-related injuries are a continuous challenge for any manager in operations or health and safety. It’s important that employees work in a safe environment so that work-related health risks are limited. But work still needs to be done.
Working with a pallet top is tricky business. They can be heavy, contain splinters and/or sharp edges. Packing, stacking and transporting products with a paper pallet top is simpler and safer because TOPPSafe™ is lightweight. It makes lifting and making long-reaching or turning movements easier and safer.

TOPPSafe™, it's tried and tested.
Smurfit Kappa TWINCORR was one of the first organisations to reap the benefits of TOPPSafe™.
"A few months ago we started working with a new customer in the dairy industry. They were using entire plastic pallets instead of pallet tops, because traditional pallet tops were not allowed in their production area. Our palletising machine could not handle a pallet as pallet top, so we needed to find a solution.
We were surprised by the strength of TOPPSafe™. I mean, it is only paper, right?! For us, there are no downsides to this product. The pallet pool is a lot smaller now, we do not have to look for any lost pallets and manual handling of pallet tops in the outbound stream is eliminated."
