* Do you have step beams?

  • If you have step-beams you may use flared, waterfall, or drop-in style wire mesh decking. Please complete steps 1 - 3.
  1. Measure the depth of the upright frame
  2. Measure the length of the pallet rack beam
  3. Measure the channel (see diagram below)

How to measure for wire mesh decking


The above diagram is a side view of a section of pallet racking.  Measurement A refers to the out to out measurement of your upright frame (or the depth of your upright frame).  Measurement B refers to the inside to inside measurement between the two steps of your beams (commonly referred to as the channel size).


* Do you have box/structural beams?

  • If you have box or structural beams (i.e. pallets beams without a step or ledge), you will need flared or universal wire mesh decking. You do not need to find the channel measurement. Please complete steps 1 - 2.
  1. Measure the depth of the upright frame
  2. Measure the length of the pallet rack beam

New doesn't necessarily equate to better when it comes to quality industrial racking and shelving systems. Not only can warehouses and distribution centers save on cost by purchasing used teardrop pallet racks, heavy duty steel shelving systems, and metal storage solutions from Philadelphia's leading supplier of material handling solutions, but they can also cut down on wait time with product that is immediately accessible. What's more, by shopping local, New Jersey (NJ), Pennsylvania (PA), Delaware (DE), and Maryland (MD) warehouses can save exponentially on hefty shipping and freight costs. Choose The Surplus Warehouse and choose excellence. With over 20 years of experience, we are the source to impeccable racking and shelving inventories and exceptional customer service.
