Transformer Pads by Formex – Introducing the Pad Pallet

APPLICATION:

Transformer pads are designed to provide a flat surface for placement of the transformer and transfer the weight to the soil below. Formex® transformer pads are unlike any other produced today. These pads have been firm, long-lasting, and manufactured since the mid-1970s to meet stringent utility industry specifications. Formex transformer pads meet or exceed industry requirements for chemical, U.V., flammability, impact, and load-bearing resistances, offering load capacities over 6,000 lbs. In addition, transformer pads produced by Formex® have proven to reduce installation time, boost efficiency, and ensure that the installation is done right.

CONSTRUCTION:

Formex® begins with two sheets of high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) for the outer skins, then inserts a core comprised of EPS foam and wood stringers. This core becomes the “backbone” of the transformer pad, as it is designed to hold well over the weight required.

FORMEX’S LATEST INNOVATION, THE PAD PALLET:

Formex® has taken its transformer pads to a higher level with their latest product, the Pad Pallet. The Pad Pallet combines the durability of a Formex® transformer pad with the functionality of a one-piece stable shipping platform capable of two-way forklift entry. This permits the installation of the transformer to be completed before shipment to the job site, significantly reducing time spent in the field, along with alleviating the need to dispose of a shipping platform afterward.
