Slatted or Close Boarded Timber Decking
Warehouse pallet racking decking can be used to provide additional support to pallets that don’t naturally overlap the pallet racking beams by the SEMA regulated standard (ie.50mm overlaps). Ideally for areas where you have a range of pallet sizes.
It is vital you order your timber pallet racking decking from a partner who will ask about and interpret the specific point loads or UDL loads that your range of pallets create. Pallets that are partially supported by the beams or sit within the beams can create entirely different loads. NSI will calculate this for you and supply the right product for your application. It can also be supplied to provide pick locations under racking.
Typically in this application it would be planned to prevent splinters and rough edges. Warehouse decking is manufactured using kiln dried softwood and the timber used is structurally graded. The deck boards have battens fixed to the underside that act as location for the timber deck against the inside faces of the pallet racking beams. It is vital for H&S purposes that these are supplied as a tight fit, otherwise in certain circumstance lateral beam movement can lead to boards dislodging. Warehouse decking is assembled using automated nailing machines to enable maximum strength and nailing accuracy.
The speed of this process ensures maximum efficiency and thus the most cost effective solution for our customers. Warehouse decking is quick and easy to install with no fixings required. They simply drop over the pallet racking beams. For external or high humidity applications the warehouse decking can also be supplied using pressure treated timber to provide a long lasting solution.
Chipboard and MDF Decking
NSI can design, supply and install chipboard or MDF decking for longspan shelving or picking locations under pallet racking. In order to protect you it is essential that the duty of material is calculated to take the loads you require. NSI can do that for you. It can be supplied in sheet form only, but most typically we will fix location battens or blocks to the underside to provide location against the shelving or racking beams. The decks will be machine manufactured off site and thus pre-battened to ensure an exact fit to your beams.
