Frequently asked questions
Here at Killarney Metals we differentiate between a drip and drain pan. The differences between the two types of pans being the presence of a drain hole or not. A drip pan will not have a drain hole which means the pan will capture your spills and drips but is not required to evacuate the contents through a drain. A drain pan on the other hand will have a hole(s) in the wall or bottom of the pan that will allow for controlled emptying of its contents.
Here at Killarney Metals the words tray and pan are often used interchangeably. However, when discussing a tray for spill containment we understand that we are generally speaking of a container with shorter walls. A pan is considered to have taller walls. The wall height that differentiates between a tray and a pan is 1 inch with any container having a wall height up to 1 inch being a tray and any container with wall over 1 inch being a pan. This being said, there may certainly be time when pan and tray terms extend outside of the guideline.
Parcel carriers such as FedEx (our carrier of choice), UPS and USPS limit the size of boxes shipped via package shipment to under 36" in any one dimension. For this reason any pan that has a length dimension greater than 36 inches is required to ship on a pallet. This is the only way we can get the pan to you.
We can provide customer pick-up services for those customers located in our regional area.
Killarney Metals does provide electrostatic powder coating services for standard and custom colors. The pricing on this service is dependent on the order size and the pans to be painted. Talk with one of our helpful staff to get pricing on painting your pan(s).
The greatest difference between Stainless and Galvanized pans is the aesthetic finish of the pans. A stainless pan will have a brushed finish which is similar to the finish on a stainless steel kitchen appliance surface. The corners on our stainless pans are welded and will have a grain that varies from the body of the pan but they will be ground smooth and finished. On a galvanized steel pan the finish is more of an industrial look. The galvanizing coating will have a "blotchy" appearance and the welded corners will be painted with a galvanizing coating after welding.
Killarney Metals is a custom metal manufacturer and all of our products can be modified or customized to meet your needs. If you have a custom pan design that you need manufactured or need a particular custom feature on your pan, we will be happy to take a look at that as well and give you a price on manufacturing.
If a piece of equipment or an appliance is being placed in the pan, we recommend your pan size to be 1"-2" larger than the size of the equipment being placed into it. If you are requiring the pan to hold a certain volume of liquid we suggest using our volume calculation resource to determine the overall dimensions of the pan necessary. Always take into consideration the area where the pan will be utilized to ensure it will fit.
At Killarney Metals we make sure that your pan is sturdy and safe. All our pans that are 1 inch and taller will receive a .5 inch hem on all four walls of the pan. This hem creates a rounded top edge that is not sharp and is very sturdy. Please note that pans 0.5 inches tall and below cannot receive hemmed edges. The edges may be sharp in these cases.

Our Front-Load Washer Floor Tray was specifically designed to work with most front-load or pedestal washing machines. Starting at 2.5" in the back, our washer tray tapers down to a 1" wall height on the front side. Perfect for catching minor water leaks, while allowing clearance for pedestal drawers or washer service access doors. If the standard pan size does not fit your needs, we can custom make a pan with the same design in mind.
Shipping costs will vary depending on the product ordered, quantity ordered, and the delivery address. You can add your items to your cart and use our Shipping Estimator for a shipping quote. If the pan is larger than 36 x 48, it may need to ship on a freight truck which typically runs around $200 for shipping. Our customer service is always available to assist you in getting a shipping quote as well.
