The Importance of Wire Mesh Decking:
Systems for warehouse pallet racks are intricately developed and created to meet the unique requirements of a facility’s inventory and operational procedures. For any business that needs to keep effective inventory management, choosing the appropriate type of decking is one of the many crucial factors to think about.
Known as a sturdy, adaptable, and safe pallet rack component, wire mesh decking is made by Worldwide Material Handling. Wire mesh decking can offer a solution to fit any storage need because to the many standard and custom varieties that are available.
The mesh shape of wire deck’s heavy-duty grid design prevents dust from gathering and allows light to pass through to all storage levels. The exceptional quality, exact fit, and industrial strength finish of WWMH wire decking, which is the most popular wire decking worldwide, give any facility an unmatched structural edge.
Types of Beams Determine Types of Channel Supports Required:
Typically, warehouse pallet rack layouts use two distinct pallet rack crossbeam types, which need for two distinct wire decking types: Roll-formed step beams and a teardrop-shaped pallet rack (with 1-5/8 “Step-style channels for wire mesh decking are the most common type and are the most common. Flared style channel supports are necessary for structural pallet rack since they have c-channel beams.
The 42″ deep x 46″ wide wire decking with step-style channel supports that accommodate a 1-5/8” pipe is the most common wire deck on the market. Although it may be mounted on most pallet rack beams, the wire deck with flared channel supports is most suited for structural c-channel crossbeam types. It has a distinctive ribbed design.
We even provide a wire deck that complies with FDA regulations for the food and beverage industry by having either an inverted step channel or an inverted flared channel. Food scraps and other garbage can’t accumulate inside the channels because of the reversed channels.
Types of Wire Decking Waterfall Designs:
Wire decking is designed in a variety of ways to meet the various requirements of the merchandise that is held. The standard outside waterfall design keeps decking secure when loads move into and out of the rack thanks to its standard 1-1/2″ waterfall over the front and back of the beam.
The inside waterfall design has no waterfall on front and back and keeps the surface flat, strong, and durable while leaving the beam face clear. A raised lip on the back of the deck of the reverse waterfall design prevents items and boxes from falling off the back of the rack and into the flue space (Keep in mind that reverse waterfall wire decking is not meant to stop pallets).
Bulk Rack Decking:
We also provide a flat wire mesh deck that is perfect for boltless rivet shelving. It frequently takes the place of particle board decking, which is gradually being banned in accordance with fire safety laws. Bulk rack is a small-footprint shelving that is used in warehouses. Flat wire mesh decking with its channel supports offers the same benefits and safety benefits as wire decking used in pallet rack systems.
Advantages of Wire Mesh Decking:
Installing wire mesh decking is simple, as it just slides over the pallet rack system’s beams. No tools are needed. When fitted properly, wire decking slides into position effortlessly and sits firmly on the pallet rack beams. The mesh grid adds shelf space for all sorts of decking while maintaining an open passage for smoke or other fire risks to appropriately filter up to sprinkler and suppression systems. In addition to meeting fire code requirements, wire mesh decking also protects people, property, and inventory.
When working with damaged pallets, the use of wire decking also provides more security. Additionally, it keeps pallets correctly supported while being kept in racks, protecting against uneven pallet placement. When positioning pallets at high elevation beam positions, wire decking gives your forklift drivers added assurance that they will be adequately supported.
