Wire Decking Sizes and Calculations

Warehouse Solutions Inc. has the largest inventory of used mesh wire decking in San Diego, Los Angeles and Inland Empire – basically all of Southern California. We have many different sizes and styles to choose from but knowing which size to use for your application can be challenging at times.

We have put together these tools to help you figure out which size is best for your application. Once you decide on the wire deck size that’s best for your application you can then decide which Wire Decking Styles you want to use. Below the calculation tools is industry standard of wire deck measurements. The depth of the wire deck is determined by the depth of your pallet racking.

Wire Decking Calculation Tool

Here’s a great way to calculate the size of your wire decking needs. You can also check out our Wire Decking Measuring Tool.

For beams LESS than 120 inches

use the 2-2-2 Rule: Divide by 2, subtract 2 then purchase 2.

(Beam Length/2) – 2 = Deck Length x 2 units

Divide the beam length by 2 then subtract 2 from that number then buy 2 wire decks at that width per beam level.For example if you have a 108” beam it would look like this:

108/2=54 then 54-2=52 then Buy 2 units at 52” wide.

For beams GREATER than 120 inches

Use the 3-2-3 Rule: Divide by 3, Subtract 2 then Buy 3.

(Beam Length/3) – 2 = Deck Length x 3 units

Divide the beam length by 3 then subtract 2 from that number then buy 3 wire decks at that width per beam level.For example if you have a 144” beam it would look like this:

144/3=48 then 48-2=46 then Buy 3 units at 46” wide
