Fifty percent open pallet rack decking is stronger than wire decking. Heavy applications have been known to destroy wire decking – making it look like it was ran over by a truck. Our 50% open decking is strong and doesn’t use tek screws that are used with punch decking. Punched corrugated decking can require 8-12 tek screws per shelf. Installers charge up to $0.25 per tek screw to install. Re-adjusting beam levels with punch deck is also more difficult because you have to unscrew them.
We can get real creative with our plank style decking. We can splice decks together to create very large shelf spaces – up to 60′ long x 12′ deep. We can design our perforated rack decking to meet your specific needs. We need to know the box/ pallet size, box/ pallet weight and how you handle your boxes and pallets. Competitors sometimes quote the lightest capacity based on UDL (uniform distributed load) without considering how pallets and boxes are handled. Sometimes boxes and pallets are slammed or thrown onto shelves. It is important to remember to instruct personnel to set product down on decking and avoid impacts. In decking impact is bad and requires you use greater deck capacity.
We also have a Versa Shelf support that attaches to the upright column eliminating the need for beams. This product in some cases can gain you an additional shelf level because of it’s low profile. ProDeck50 can also be supplied in 24″ x 48″ size for Rivitier boltless shelving.
