Welded wire decking is an effective solution to enhance the versatility and safety of pallet racking. Wire decks improve the overall efficiency of your rack system, prevents dust from accumulating and allows air and light to flow through each storage level. Each deck is rated for 2,500 lbs. evenly distributed.
Steel wire mesh decking with steel support channels allow for the storage of open case items and pallets of inventory in the same sections of pallet rack. New and used wire deck helps protect against falling items that can cause worker injury and product damage. Wire decking is maintenance free and easy to install.
A Standard or Step Waterfall Wire Deck rests on the step part of the beam while part of the decking rests on top of the beam. The edge of the deck hangs over the face of the beam for added support. The step carries the weight of the decking and its contents across the surface area of the step beam.
The more Channels a deck has the more it can hold. A typical wire deck comes with 3 channels and larger ones will have 4. The face of the decking creates a partially unobstructed view of the entire beam face for reading the labels and product barcodes. Step channel wire decking is stronger than flare channel decking, but more limited in application.
As the name implies, step channel wire decks can only be used to support step beams, whereas flare channel decks fit a range of beams, but are less robust. At their very core, wire decking products are a safety net for your products. Without wire decking in place, it becomes extremely precarious to unload and remove pallets from the beams in your warehouse, with only inches separating a forklift operator from successfully placing a pallet and causing it crash to the ground, potentially costing you thousands of dollars in damages.
Wire Decking, provides a safe surface to support pallets. Wire decking increases the safety and versatility of your pallet rack system by allowing you to store more than just pallets. Bins, boxes, and other products are commonly stored on wire decking.
