Dolav Folding Pallet Boxes


Dolav Folding Pallet Boxes


Dolav folding pallet boxes are the best of both worlds hygienically and in strength. However, they have not always been around.

Pallet boxes are widely used in the food sector but, until now, users had to make a choice between two options:

  1. Choose rigid boxes that take up as much space when they’re empty as they do when they’re full; or

  2. They could choose folding boxes that were virtually impossible to wash effectively.

Dolav Plastic Products Cooperative Ltd, are a leading supplier of rigid pallet boxes. They worked on this problem for five years and have developed a solution that’s both convenient and cost effective.


The innovative Dolav DFLC is a large pallet box that gives the best of both worlds. It can be disassembled into five components – four sides and a base – therefore, it can be folded flat when empty. In addition, because each component can be washed separately, high levels of hygiene can be achieved.

Expert Washing Technology

To confirm that its revolutionary new boxes really do meet the needs of the food sector, Dolav teamed up with Industrial Washing Machines Limited (IWM), a renowned expert in washing technology.

Putting The Dolav Folding Pallet Boxes To The Test

In conjunction with detergents specialist Holchem, Dolav and IWM carried out a series of trials. For the preliminary trials, the boxes were coated with a proprietary gel that fluoresces under UV light. After that, they were washed in a customised IWM P100 pallet washer.

After washing, the boxes were examined with a UV light source in a darkened room. No fluorescence was seen, confirming that all of the gel had been removed.

Real World Conditions

Subsequent trials were designed to more closely replicate real world conditions. The boxes were heavily soiled with a sausage, minced meat and mayonnaise mix prior to washing.

Furthermore, the results were assessed using sensitive ATP (adenosine triphosphate) detection techniques and revealed that all surfaces reached consistently achieved a “cautionary clean” or better standard.

When subjected to the same tests, conventional folding containers from other suppliers produced results were 10 to 100 times worse. In addition, in every case, categorised as “not clean”.
