Used Wire Mesh Decking
We have THOUSANDS of new and used wire mesh decking in stock of all sizes.
Wire Mesh decking is typically used to create shelf levels within the pallet rack system as well as providing added safety when stocking and picking your palletized products. If you have an application which requires you to store and pick products off the pallet rack shelf location then wire decks are the right choice. If you are operating out of a tall pallet rack system and need the added comfort of knowing that if your forklift operator doesn’t quite get the pallet at your top beam level pushed in all the way before lowering their forks and backing out of the pallet bay, then the wire decks are a must. There are many different depths and widths of a pallet rack system and because of this wire mesh decks come in an array of sizes and capacities. They are constructed from heavy duty steel wire and steel channels. The channels of the wire decks sit in the steps of step beams and in some cases they will sit directly on the top of the beam . Wire decks prevent the accumulation of dust and debris within your pallet rack system. They also allow for water to be dispersed from your overhead sprinkler lines whereby allowing the water to travel throughout your rack system unlike other shelf systems that are made of plywood or particleboard.
In many states and/or counties throughout the nation wire decking is preferred and in most cases required by the fire inspectors if you are going to create any type of supported shelf levels throughout your pallet racking system. There are different styles of wire mesh decks to choose from depending on your specific application in your warehouse. . As mentioned above, wire decks are constructed from heavy duty steel wires and roll formed steel U-channel supports. The wire thickness can vary depending on capacity requirements. Wire decks typically range in capacity from 500lbs per deck up to 4500lbs per deck. This is entirely dictated by your specific application/s and product weights that are going to be stored on the wire deck. The typical wire thickness or gauge is 6 ga.. The wire mesh patterns themselves can vary but the most typical is a 2.5” x 4” wire mesh pattern. Additional capacity for the wire mesh decks from a series of U-channels which the wire portion of the deck rest on. The U-Channels are welded to the underside of the wire at numerous locations. Most wire decks on the market today general come painted or galvanized.
Wire Deck Types:
Double Waterfall Wire Mesh decks are the most popular type of wire deck on market today. The name comes from the fact that at the at both ends of the double waterfall deck the wire mesh actually waterfalls over the top of the shelf beams. This provides additional capacity while ensuring the wire deck stays in position since it is locked in (Front to Rear) by the waterfall potion of the deck itself. The waterfall feather also eliminates any snagging of products while placing them on and off the wire deck shelf within the pallet rack system. For additional support the double waterfall wire mesh deck is supported by a series of U-channels which the wire portion of the deck rest on. In this application, the U-Channels actually sit in the step of the step beam. The step of the step beam usually measures 1 5/8” deep from the top of the beam to the top of the step portion of the beam that the wire deck channels rest on.
Reverse Waterfall Wire Mesh Decks have the same waterfall design in the front as that of the double waterfall deck. The different is that the waterfall portion of the deck in the rear is actually turned upward. The reverse waterfall wire mesh decks are used in applications where you are trying to prevent product from being pushed off the rear of the shelf level when stocking or picking. The upward turned lip works as a stop in preventing the product from falling to the floor or lodging between the pallet rack system.
Lay-in Wire Mesh Decks are designed to set in the step of a step beam while resting flush with the top of the beams. There is no waterfall feature with this type of deck. This type of wire decking is preferred in an application where there may be a need for slot or location numbers to be placed on the face of the pallet rack beam for identification purposes.
Universal Wire Mesh Decks are designed to fit on both step beam, box beams and structural steel beams. In the case of a box or structural pallet rack beam there isn’t any lip or ledge for the traditional wire decks U-channel supports to rest on. The universal wire mesh deck solves this problem by using a similar U-Channel support that bends upward at the front and rear of the deck creating a flange type piece of steel that set on top of the box and structural beams.
