Wire Decking – Pallet Rack Wire Decking

SJF carries a wide selection of new & used wire decking for pallet racks and pallet rack systems. Heavy duty wire mesh decking is an ideal add-on to pallet rack for anyone looking to safely support and store items in a pallet racking system. Pallet rack wire decking creates a wire shelf surface made from heavy duty wire weaved into a mesh grid. The open wire mesh allows for better visibility of the product and allows air to circulate. The open wire mesh grid also gives open access to sprinklers in the event of a fire.

Easily laid directly over pallet rack beams or wire deck railing, wire racking adds an extra layer of safety and support, no tools required. It safeguards against items slipping through the openings between pallet rack beams, promoting safety and facilitating the storage of smaller items that could otherwise slip through unnoticed. And since wire racking is inexpensive and simple to install, pallet rack decking is a popular product in many warehouse settings.

Wire Decking Info

Pallet Rack Decking Buyer's Guide

Wire decking is designed to provide the ability to store items on shelves without decking using pallets. Wire decks also provide increased stability and protection to the pallet rack over pallet support beams alone.

Wire deck advantages

  • Easy installation - simple drop in design requires no hardware
  • Fits directly over pallet rack beams in a pallet racking system
  • Increased safety from fire
  • Increases pallet rack weight capacity
  • Several finishes, sizes and styles to choose from

The wire mesh grid in pallet rack wire decking allows light to pass through and evenly disperse from ceiling to floor. Using decking wire in pallet rack storage reduces shadows, resulting in brighter warehouses. Better distribution of existing lighting is proven to reduce accidents and increase stocking and picking efficiencies.

Wire decking also increases the level of safety by reducing the risk of loss due to fire. In the event of fire, traditional solid decking materials like wood or plywood could ignite and block water from getting to the fire. With wire decking, this problem is all but eliminated because water can easily pass through the rack grating or mesh wire, allowing sprinklers access to flames. Wire deck has proven to be so successful at reducing losses due to fire that most local fire codes now require wire decking be used wherever indoor pallet rack storage is utilized.

Protective coatings for pallet rack decking

Depending on the environment that the decking is used in, there are different protective coatings to choose from - painted, powder coated and galvanized wire decking. What is the difference?

Wire decking is an accessory that adds a safe surface for products to sit on in pallet racking. It is easy to install, inexpensive and has several safety advantages.

SJF carries all types of wire decking. We have a large number of wire decks in stock at all times. Typically, we find that the three types we provide most often are standard/step waterfall, universal and flush styles.

Standard (aka step) style decking with waterfalls sit in the steps of rack beams. The support channels on the beam steps and the waterfall wraps over the top of the beam.

This style of wire deck features a flared flange at each end. The flange allows these decks to be used with either box or step beams. As with step style, a waterfall wraps around the beam.

Flush decks are exactly the same as standard style – only they do not have a waterfall that wraps around the rack beam. This style deck gives pallet racking a nice, clean look.

The depth of wire decking must be the same as the depth of the pallet racking uprights. Standard depths are 24", 36", 42", 44" and 48" deep. The width of the decking depends upon the width of the beams. Standard widths are 46", 52" and 58" wide.
