What a Way to Start the Year: Launching 2 New Material Handling Products! MODEX 2014 is less than a month away. Are you ready? We’ve been preparing by launching 2 new products. FlexRack Pallet Rack (pictured right) was released a few weeks ago with great success, and we’re soon to bring our Wire Decking and Accessories to the public as well.
Why FlexRack Pallet Rack & Wire Decking?Many companies today require versatility from their material handling and warehouse equipment, and not just from robots. Yes, robots, and the technology they exhibit, can be great, but pallet racks and wire decking have to evolve too. Whether due to a diversification of products or because of demand on the material handling process, warehouse engineers and managers are often stuck trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. FlexRack Pallet Rack helps address that issue, and our Wire Decking provides even more options for both new and old shelving systems.
When and Where to Use Wire DeckingWikiPedia gives a pretty good understanding of wire decking in selective pallet rack systems. We have edited the following excerpt to highlight a few important reasons to use wire deck.
Wire decking is commonly used as a safety measure on selective pallet rack to prevent pallets or the products stored on them from falling through the rack structure. Most wire mesh decking has U-shaped channel supports, also known as struts, to support the load. With this waterfall decking, the wire mesh extends across the top and down the front of the beam to provide more support, and is more desirable in the marketplace. Some types of decking are manufactured with solid metal instead of wire mesh…it is discouraged by fire inspectors because sprinkler systems cannot spray through the shelves to levels below.
