Benefits of Mesh Wire Decking

One major advantage that mesh wire decking has over solid metal or wood decking is that it allows more light to filter down, so it is easier to read labels and tags on pallets, reducing errors. In addition, the openings in mesh wire decking enable more effective sprinkler system access. In the event of a fire, this may help lessen damage to stored goods and reduce losses.

It’s important to get mesh wire decking that is strong enough to safely store the materials in your stock room. The wrong mesh wire decking may buckle or slip if it isn’t strong enough to support your goods. This is a safety hazard as well as a potential loss of materials, so it is best to work with a company that fully understands the warehousing industry and takes the time to learn about the materials you need to store.

At Material Handling Exchange our experienced team is eager to discuss your warehousing needs, and we have a wide variety of new and used wire decking for sale. This way, you can be certain you are getting the right quality mesh wire decking for your warehouse.

Flat and Waterfall Wire Decking

Some mesh wire decking lies flat on the support beams, while waterfall wire decking has a lip extending over the front and rear rails to add extra support. Waterfall wire decking is an excellent choice for adding extra rigidity for heavy loads. Either type of decking may have additional rails to add strength.

Mesh wire decking consists of heavy gauge steel arranged in a grid pattern. Grid sizes may vary, but most use a grid that is 2 ½” by 4”. Another advantage of wire mesh decking is that it is easy to assemble. It simply sits on top of the support beams and requires no additional fasteners.

New vs. Used

Mesh wire decking is usually coated with a gray enamel finish to create a uniform appearance and to protect the mesh from the inevitable dings and scratches that occur in a busy warehouse. Used wire mesh decking may have a worn appearance with chips that expose the steel. Once the enamel coating chips, the decking is more susceptible to rust.

As long as it has not been stored outside, it may not matter whether you select new or used decking. When exposed to rain or wet weather, the steel in the wire mesh decking can start to rust, but otherwise, new and used wire decking are equally strong and can have a long life.

New wire mesh decking has the advantage of a fresh, uniform appearance. You may want to buy new decking if you are setting up a new warehouse or expanding your space.

How to Select Your Wire Decking

Determine the beam length measurement that the decks are going to be installed on by measuring the inside edge of the beam connector where it would sit flush with the side of the upright frame. Note that you want to use the measurement that is similar to your desired pallet racking bay widths. Example: A 96” beam will have a measurement from the inside edges of the beam connectors that is generally within 1/16” or so of what the desired bay dimension is. You do not want to measure between the furthest outside edges of the beam connectors or the measurement will be too long.

Find Your Beam Length

Deck Width Chart

  • 96” beams require Two (2) 46” wide wire decks
  • 108” beams require Two (2) 52” wide wire decks
  • 120” beams require Two(2) 58” wide wire decks
  • 144” beams require Three (3) 46” wide wire decks

Next, Determine The Upright Depth

Example: 42” deep upright would require a wire mesh deck that is 42” Deep. · If you are ordering wire decks to go with your existing pallet rack uprights, then you will need confirm that the measurement between the steps of your existing pallet rack beams will accommodate a channel lengths of the new decks.

Find Your Beam Depth

Deck Width Chart

  • For 36” deep wire decks the common channel lengths are between 32-1/4” and 32-3/8”
  • For 42” deep wire decks the common channel lengths are between 38-1/4” and 38-3/8”
  • For 48” deep wire decks the common channel lengths are between 44-1/4” and 44-3/8”
One important decision to make when buying new pallet racking systems for your warehouse is the type of decking to use. Decking serves as the horizontal base for storing materials in your pallet racks. Decking comes in wood and metal, but one of the best options is mesh wire decking.

"Material Handling Exchange employees were knowledgeable, helpful, and involved throughout the design and installation. Very easy to work with. The installation crew were professional and easy to work with."


"We have been outfitting a new 14,000 sqft warehouse with new racking. We worked with MHE a couple years ago and had great experience with getting everything specced out and rated for our needs. We had to get racks custom made for the specific work we do. Their prices were very competitive. We went back and ordered another quantity from them last year. We will likely be ordering more from them in the future. The only issue we had was the delivery. The trucking company they used didn’t brace everything and some of the racking fell off the pallets in the truck. It took us several hours to partially hand-unload a full 53 foot trailer. That was the trucking company though. MHE was great."

The install team that came to our facility was outstanding; they worked safely and cleaned the work areas meticulously once the work was completed.

We will absolutely use Material Handling Exchange for future projects in our DC."

Neil M. Underhill

"I had MHE design and build cantilever rack for our cabinet manufacturing company. the sales person I worked with was knowledgable of how our business works and knew exactly what we needed. This order was a custom build due to the limited ceiling height we have to work with in out plant. when we received our cantilever order we built and loaded it with lumber. everthing works great."


"Hands down the best company for racking I have worked with in my 15+ years. The racking is clean,safe,strong and easy to put up fast. I would also say that the sales team is right there if anything comes up with the job. All my questions where answered quick and they made sure to go over every detail to ensure I got the correct racking for my application. My company is located in North Carolina and there was no problems with shipping and was fast to get to us."

Todd Sigler

"Starting at the beginning of this year I have been dealing with Mr. Horwitz. He has been very helpful and accomodating to our needs here at Newegg. He is very knowledgeable and prompt when offering quotations. Once orders are in the process the rest of his team communicates at a very professional level. We’ve ordered from them several times already this year and will continue to do so in the future."

Todd Herman

"We’ve done business a handful of times with MHE. It’s always a problem-free experience. Whether we’re picking up a small order from their warehouse directly or having them ship an order to our shop, the order is always accurate. Prompt shipments. Good quality used stock. New stock is fairly priced. Their sales staff is always personable and checks over orders to make sure you didn’t overlook anything. We have no reason to buy from anyone else."
