Is wire decking required for pallet racking?

Feb 06, 2024

Wire decking is not universally required for pallet racking, but it is commonly used for added safety and functionality. Wire decking consists of wire mesh panels that serve as a platform between the horizontal beams of the racking system. It provides several benefits:

1. Increased stability: Wire decking helps distribute the weight of the pallet load evenly across the racking beams, reducing the risk of a single point load causing the beam to sag or fail.

2. Fire safety: The open design of wire decking allows sprinkler systems to effectively penetrate through the racks in the event of a fire, enabling quick response and minimizing fire damage.

3. Improved visibility: Wire mesh decking allows for better visibility between levels of the racking system, which can be helpful for inventory management and locating specific products.

4. Prevention of small items from falling: Wire decking prevents smaller items or debris from falling through the rack levels, reducing the risk of injuries or damage to products.

Whether wire decking is required or optional depends on local building codes, regulations, and specific safety standards. It is advisable to consult with the relevant authorities or seek guidance from an industry professional to determine the specific requirements for your warehouse or jurisdiction.
