About Wire Deck
Wire Decks are a great product for keeping loose items from slipping through your pallet rack beams and falling onto you or your employees. Wire decking also has the added benefit of being open in case of fire, which other products (particle board, plywood) do not. This open mesh design allows water from sprinkler systems to flow through the racking and suppress any fires that are low in the racking. Most municipalities now require wire decking instead of wooden pallet supports.
Wire decking is typically available with one of two channel types; "universal" and "step channel". Universal, or flared supports allow the wire decks to be used on either box or step beams. Channel type wire decks can only be used with step beams. In addition to these two channel types, wire decking also accommodates options to either wrap around the top of the beam (waterfall) or sit flush with the level of the beam (flush).

"If you're planning on adding shelf levels to a pallet rack in the future, be sure to get uprights that are rated at the future overall weight capacity, not just the present need."
