A pallet hooder applies a hood or sleeve of film around a pallet and load. The film is slightly stretchy, and shrinks when exposed to heat. A pallet hooder applies the film from a roll, either as a tube of film or as perforated bags. A tube of film leaves an open top, while a bag encloses both the sides and top of the pallet. This creates a weather resistant seal, making a pallet hood an ideal wrapping for pallets that will be placed outside or in dirty environments. The pallet hooder either cuts the appropriate length of film or tears off a perforated bag, then stretches the material over the pallet. Some machines include a heat source to shrink the film to the pallet, or sometimes an employee uses a propane torch to apply heat.
