Why use Pallet Rack decking?
Installing mesh decks in a pallet racking system adds protection, safety and utility:
Safety & Protection: Decks distribute pallet weight clear across the beams, improving fall protection. This is especially important in the event of split or open cases, reducing the chance that errant inventory will fall into the depths of the racking system. Wire mesh decks can even be combined with safety bars to provide an extra layer of protection. What’s more, mesh decking improves fire safety as sprinkler water can run through the entire system without pooling.
Utility: Decking improves small inventory loading and fulfillment, and unlike traditional shelving, mesh decks do not gather dust while still allowing light to penetrate to lower levels.
Because decking is an integral part of a pallet racking system, Steelhead Warehouse Solutions stocks a large inventory of wire mesh decks. Installation is easy; decks simply drop into place. And because every warehouse presents its own unique challenges, wire mesh decking patterns, width, depth and finish can be customized.
