Standard Specification for Wirebound Pallet-Type Wood Boxes


1.1 This specification covers the fabrication of new fully enclosed wirebound pallet-type wooden boxes intended for use as containers for domestic and overseas shipment of general materials and supplies, not exceeding 2500 lb [1134 kg] (see 10.1).

1.2 Wirebound pallet-type wooden box performance is dependent on its fabricated components; therefore, a variety of types, classes, and treatments reflecting varied performance are specified. This specification, however, does not cover wirebound pallet-type wooden box performance under all atmosphere, handling, shipping, and storage conditions.

1.3 If the use of other construction methods or techniques is acceptable and permitted (see 5.1.11), the resulting packaging systems shall be of equal or better performance than would result from the use of these specified material and procedures. The appropriate distribution cycle provided in Practice D 4169 can be used to develop comparative procedures and criteria.

1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. See IEEE/ASTM SI 10 for conversion of units.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
