Open grid wire mesh decking is used at most warehouse, distribution centers and manufacturing plants as a safety measure on selective pallet rack to prevent pallets from falling through the rack structure. Wire decking complies with state and local fire codes, providing an open deck so the heat can reach the sprinklers and allows water to extinguish the fire.
A standard wire decking rests on the step part of the beam while part of the decking rests on top of the beam. The edge of the deck hangs over the face of the beam for added support. The step carries the weight of the decking and its contents across the surface area of the step beam.
The face of the decking creates a partially unobstructed view of the entire beam face for reading the lablels and product barcodes.
