If you don’t have wire decking on your pallet racks and industrial storage racks already, it’s an investment worth considering. This simple addition to the shelves in your warehouse offers a tremendous number of benefits, from safety to versatility in storage. It’s also relatively inexpensive, making it a small investment for your warehouse that can offer a big pay off. Here is why we recommend this addition to so many of our customers:
- It’s safer for your employees. Adding wire mesh to your pallet racks and industrial storage shelves minimizes the risk of objects falling onto them from above when they are working in and around your shelves. If a worker is opening a carton above, the wire mesh will catch any merchandise or tools that may be inadvertently knocked aside.
- It creates more storage options. Wire decking allows you to add shelf accessories such as plastic cartons and bins to hold smaller items. You won’t have to purchase additional storage for these smaller items; you can simply modify your existing shelves to work for all of your needs once you have the sturdy wire mesh platform to build on.
- It can help with fire safety. Wire decking allows sprinklers and hoses to reach any fire within the shelves with it’s open mesh design. Other solutions, such as plywood, can actually fuel a fire while wire decking will not.
