Timber decking

Timber decks can be supplied in two options: open or close boarded. They are highly resilient, making them suitable for heavy duty racking and shelving decking applications but are also suitable for the storage of small, light-weight pallets.

Timber decks are made out of a number of wooden slats which are screwed into the battens. They can be made to any size, and they work to enhance the overall safety of the racking system by eliminating the risk of pallets falling through the beams. They can also be used to support stillages or undersized pallets to provide additional support and prevent stock from falling through the racking.

  • Decking or shelves are constructed with multiple panels to complete a flat steel, high capacity shelf surface.
  • Capacities vary with profile, length, and gauge of steel.

Wire mesh decks

Wire mesh racking and shelving decking is widely used in warehouses as an accompaniment to racks, and as a safety measure on selective pallet racking to prevent pallets or the products stored on them from falling through the rack structure. Wire decking comes in various thickness and mesh dimensions. Most have a U-shaped channel or flared supports to support the loading.

At Storlab we carry an assortment of wire mesh decks as an alternative to safety bars. Each mesh deck has a capacity rating (uniformed distributed load) that can be customised according to a customers’ requirements. There are different reinforcement channels to used for different functions.

Solid steel decks

Solid steel racking and shelving decking is supported on the beams with the vertical edge also being engaged, which enables both beams of a single level to be joined. All of this gives the racking greater rigidity.

The different shelves which make up a level, slot perfectly into one another thanks to the indentations and side slots.
