What is Pallet Rack Wire Decking?
Wire decking is a common accessory and affordable solution for pallet rack decking. Made from durable metal in an open mesh design, the built-in wire decking support channels fit securely between the front and rear rack beams to provide an easy drop-in wire deck to support your inventory.
The unique mesh design increases the safety and versatility of the entire pallet rack system by allowing you to store more than just standard pallets in your warehouse. It also prevents lost product from falling to the floor while still allowing light to pass through for better views of your inventory. Offered in a variety of wire gauge selections, there are plenty of options available to fit your specific needs.

Benefits of Pallet Rack Wire Decking
Applications for Pallet Rack Wire Decking
Wire decking adheres to FDA regulations and can store food without contaminating goods. Its surface doesn’t accumulate dust or allow potential pests to easily access the food inside the palletized containers. And the woven mesh design allows for an abundance of airflow, while preventing bacteria growth from accidental spills.
Manufacturing and Warehousing
The industrial grade warehouse rack wire decking can hold over one ton of products and supplies. The metal mesh adds more support beneath the pallets while its non-flammable construction reduces the risk of fires.
Types of Pallet Rack Wire Decking
Drop-In Flush Decking: As its name suggests, drop-in flush decking drops into place flush with the pallet rack and is supported by the beams. It is best used when access to the front of the beams is needed (e.g., barcodes attached to beams).
Waterfall Wire Mesh Decking: This type of wire decking sits on top of the beams and hangs over the edge like a waterfall. It is available with options that can fit over a variety of beams, like box and step beams.
Step Channel Decking: Best used with step beams, the step channel decking is designed with a U-shaped support channel whose ends rest on the bottom portion of the step beam at either end.
Flared Channel Decking: The ends of the support channels flare out on this type of wire decking, allowing it to work universally with either box or step beams. However, it does not work with drop-in decking.
Inverted Channel Decking: Available in both standard and flared forms, inverted channel decking offers universal application with options for both step and flared channels. Its inverted U-shape design helps to prevent accumulation of dust and debris, ensuring regulatory compliance for food industry facilities that store edible products.
