About Wire Decking

American Surplus Inc. carries several styles of used wire decking, including flared wire deckingflush wire decking, punch decking, waterfall wire decking, and step wire decking. Wire mesh provides several benefits when compared to other types of decking. Its open design allows light to pass through each level of pallet racking, increasing overall visibility in your warehouse. The wire mesh also reduces your risk of fire damage as it allows sprinkler water to pass between levels.

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 from needing additional lighting. It also allows for 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 require wire decking to be used when pallet racking is set up indoors.

Wire decking allows for you to store almost anything on the pallet racking, without the requirement of being palletized. American Surplus has 1,000’s of pieces of used wire decking in stock in all of the most popular sizes.

Advantages of Wire Decking

Wire decking offers numerous advantages in various applications. Here are some of the key benefits of using wire decking:

  • Improved Safety: Wire decking provides a safe working environment by preventing items from falling through the racking system. The wire mesh design ensures that small items or debris cannot slip through, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Increased Visibility: The open-grid design of wire decking allows for better visibility and light penetration. This feature improves inventory management by providing clear visibility of products stored on different levels, making it easier to locate and access items quickly.

  • Flexibility: Wire decking is available in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different storage needs. It can be customized to fit specific racking systems or adapted for specific applications, such as storing pallets, boxes, or smaller items.
  • Improved Inventory Management: The wire mesh design allows for easy identification of items and facilitates the flow of air, reducing dust accumulation. It also helps maintain inventory organization by preventing items from mixing between different storage levels.
  • Cost-Effective: Wire decking provides a cost-effective solution for enhancing the functionality and safety of racking systems. Its durability and long lifespan contribute to reduced maintenance and replacement costs over time.
