Wire Deck Design: Guage, 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 4.5mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, etc. and constructed with a  50*50mm, 50*100mm, 25*100mm wire pattern. There are typically 3 channel supports on standard deck sizes, and 4 to more channel supports on wider decks.

Wire Decks Application

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.
