How about a migratory pallet with everything built in with clips just like Brushy Mountain's SBBs for use with plastic corrugated sheets?

Thank you.
I could not see where the sticky board is located.
It is a nice SBB.

He has metal clips underneath the edges of the screen...on the bottom.  You simply slide a corrugated sheet underneath. (Edit:  Maybe he ran dados....I forget.)

I was going to use this idea in February to build four test pallets.  When I do, I'll be more than happy to share photos and thoughts.

The big concern with this design that I have seen posted is the lack of substantial surface area for contact with with pallet fork and if you get a bad tilt they rip the screen.  So it sounds like you need to be careful when loading and offloading.

You need a better design I think, that allows for the lowest common denominator in terms of operating. KISS.  Benefits of the SBB but structure no different than a normal plywood pallet bottom.

You have a very good point about the forks and hardware cloth.
if you tear the hardawre cloth with my design the pallet deck would have to be destroyed.
