Wire decking is designed to be utilized with pallet racking, as it provides a surface to place partial cases and open cases without the risk of materials falling. Wire decking provides more uniform load support when compared to the pallet support bars. They allow light through the racking, which will save you on additional lighting being required.
It also allows for the dirt and dust to fall to the ground instead of getting stuck in the racking. This is also useful in case of a fire because the sprinklers mounted on the ceiling will not be blocked by the racking and will be able to reach the ground. Local fire codes may require wire decking to be used when pallet racking is set up indoors.
Wire decking is maintenance free and simple to install. Wire decks simply drop into place and do not require any additional hardware to begin using.
