Wire Decking Styles and Support Types
Wire Decking - Styles
Waterfall, (Shown with standard channel supports)
The front and back of this decking style has a “waterfall” edge that overlaps the beam. The waterfall helps keep the decking in place. This style of decking can be used with all types of beams, box, step, and structural.
Flush Mount, or Inside Waterfall
This style of decking provides a cleaner look and leaves the beam face open for labeling. It can only be used with step beams.
Wire Decking – Support Types
This is the most common type of channel used to support mesh decking. In all cases, the support is welded to the mesh deck to provide additional capacity. This type of support can be used with all beam types, box, step, and structural. The end of the channel is open and flared, enabling it to sit between the decking and the beam.
In this case, the end of the channel is cut square and is designed to be used with step beams. The channel rests on the beam step.
Support channels can be inverted to solve the problem of dirt and debris build up that can occure with standard supports. This style typically provides less capacity, but is common in industries where cleanliness is a concern, such as food storage.
