Replacing Solid Wood Decks with Wire Decking

Replacing Solid Wood Decks with Wire Decking

Based on our experience, the most common upgrade requested by local fire authority is replacing solid wood decks of any kind, with fire-approved wire mesh decking. Plywood used as solid deck on pallet rack systems can function as barrier for fire suppression sprinklers, and not meet building codes for high pile storage.

High Piled Combustible Storage

High Piled Combustible Storage

High pile permit is required for storage of combustible materials. An application for permit, including plans and specifications, must be submitted to the local Building Department for review and approval. Additional information must be submitted including the building floor plan with the storage rack layout, elevation of beam levels, location and classification of commodities, usable storage height, fire suppression and detection system details, sprinkler deflector height with commodity clearance, aisle sizes, egress and exit plan, and location of fire department access doors.

What Are Fire Inspectors Looking for Inside a Warehouse?

What Fire Inspectors are Looking for Inside a Warehouse?

Fire inspectors look for many things inside a warehouse, but pallet rack decking is on top of their list. Commercial and industrial warehouse areas that use a fire suppression system, in combination with pallet rack storage systems, are required to meet local and statewide fire safety standards. Wire mesh decks with 50% openings can be a good solution for high pile storage applications.

Upturned or Reversed Waterfall Wire Decking

Upturned or Reversed Waterfall Wire Decking

Decking with the rear waterfall turned up can serve as a backstop, and prevent boxes and cartons from being pushed off the back of the rack and fall, or into the wall. When upturned reverse waterfall wire mesh deck with back stop is installed, boxes and products will become protected.

Wire Deck Design: Gage, Pattern, and Support Channels

Wire Deck Design: Gage, Pattern, and Support Channels

The anatomy of a wire deck consists of the wire, and the channel supports. Wire thickness and number of channel supports are considered when designing for specific applications. Load capacity, beam length, upright depth, and equipment use help determine the design requirements. The wire diameter is generally 2 gauge, 4 gauge, or 6 gauge, and constructed with a 2.5" x 4" wire pattern. There are typically 3 channel supports on standard deck sizes, and 4 channel supports on wider decks. Other size wire patters available below:

  • 2" x 4"
  • 2" x 3"
  • 4" x 4"
  • 1" x 4"
  • 2" x 2"

Uniformly Distributed Loads

Uniformly Distributed Loads

The strength and firmness of the wire deck is usually expressed in total deck capacity, assuming a uniformly distributed load. Therefore, point load capacities must be analyzed during the design process. For standard pallet storage, most of the pallet weight is resting on the pallet rack beams. Aligning pallet loads on a pallet rack system is important for safety, and for maximizing the deck capacity. For undersize pallet storage, and hand stacking storage, uniform distributed load needs to be satisfied.
