3.4 Wire decks

Wire decks, or wire mesh decking, are grid-like panels made of wire mesh that are designed to be placed on racking beams to create a shelf to store goods. Wire decks also enhance safety by preventing items from falling through the racking levels allow better visibility and airflow within the storage system.
