Read This Before Buying Wire Mesh Decking

For several decades, pallet racks have been very useful in maximizing storage capacity at warehouses and distribution centres. Choosing the right rack decking is a crucial part of the industrial pallet racking system. Rack decking acts as a base for storing non-palletized items or cases along with palletized products. Decking reduces the possibility of products falling by increasing the overall number of contact points between the storage media and the product being stored. It, thus, increases overall warehouse safety. Wire mesh decking is one of the most popular and versatile choices when it comes to decking solutions.
