Pallet Rack Decking
When searching for the right style of pallet rack, you also must also consider what shelving (called decking) you want to use with the pallet rack you chose. Each decking option can provide your rack with even more efficiency and storage potential, but which one will work for your rack?
Most people install pallet rack decking to increase safety, stability, and versatility. A pallet rack with decking is more forgiving for forklift drivers who load pallets on upper-level pallet rack locations, far beyond visual confirmation that they have the pallet square on the beams. Decking, if installed correctly, can provide forklift drivers assistance in centering the load right so that it’s safer and more stable.
The versatility of pallet rack decking is very useful. Most warehouses have multiple load types. So long as the decks are specified correctly, they can hold smaller pallets, containers, and other loads that don’t quite fit on the beams. They also allow for split cases, boxes, components, or cartons that need support to sit in the rack system. This gives them the versatility that just having pallet support lack. Pallet supports are usually used strictly to add rigidity beneath a load that may require it.
Aside from size (most deck types offer a good range of sizes), your first filter should be capacity: how much weight can your decking solution hold? You should understand your load characteristics and what it will take to carry it.
Wire, Solid, Slotted, or Perforated?
Pallet rack decking is made from a variety of materials, from wire mesh to perforated metal. Pallet rack decking installs onto compatible pallet rack beams to distribute the weight of items placed on the decking across the beams. The decking also stops loose items from open or split pallets or non-palletized loads from falling through the racks. This decking is used for building or upgrading pallet racks that provide organized storage for palletized loads or large containers in warehouses, distribution centers, and other storage facilities.
Pallet rack wire mesh decking is ideal for increasing organization and safety. It can change your storage system into exactly what you need to meet city safety codes and your warehouse needs.
Pallet rack wire decking is generally made from corrugated metal, perforated metal, or wire mesh. It is placed on shelves with horizontal load beams to support loads of variable sizes and weights. To provide full pallets with more solid support we use horizontal pallet supports with wire mesh decking on top. The horizontal pallet supports are used to support full pallet loads. Wire mesh decking is used at warehouses and manufacturing plants as a safety measure on pallet racks to prevent pallets from falling through the rack structure. Wire mesh decking complies with state and local fire codes.

A warehouse operations pallet rack system is a critical part of the business's success. Employee safety must be your primary concern. However, after installation, these essential structures are sometimes neglected, creating serious potential employee risks, as well as escalating property damages. Items stored on pallet racks are often heavy and bulky. These items require extra care and caution for storage and transportation to prevent any damage or injuries.
Without regular inspections and repairs by qualified personnel, serious accidents from faulty or damaged pallet racking can occur. Faulty or damaged pallet racking also can void your rack manufacturer's warranty.
Most Common Warehouse Pallet Racking Safety Issues
1. Misaligned Pallet RackingThrough normal wear and tear from years of warehouse use, racking will become misaligned. Regular inspection frequency will ensure the racking is properly aligned and all connections are good.
2. Pallet Rack Floor Fittings Loosening Up Over TimeThe constant heavyweight and movement of products on the pallet racks will loosen the anchor plates over time. Inspection and maintenance include identifying any loose or broken floor bolts, fittings, or plates and again anchoring them down with heavy anchor bolts.
3. Pallet Rack Physical DamageCaution must be taken to make sure weight limits are not exceeded on any of the individual beams or on the complete framework. If the weight limits of Pallet Racking are exceeded, it may cause physical damage to the pallet racks. Going beyond rack weight limits will constitute improper use voiding any warranty. During pallet rack design and assembly, be alert to include clearance space to prevent forklift truck collisions with the pallet racking. Support employees to report all minor impacts, collisions, or any observed pallet rack damage.
