GALVA-DECK Pallet Rack Backing System

Safety of Employees and Guest

This rack safety system helps prevent pallets from becoming displaced in a rack system and becoming a safety hazard. Oftentimes, work or packing areas are placed near pallet rack systems, putting employees at risk of falling pallets or products from the rack above. With a rack back system, the galvanized wire mesh panels provide a safety layer between employees and the products or pallets.

Inventory Protection

GALVA-DECK backing also protects your products by promoting proper stacking on the pallets, thereby reducing the likelihood of crushing and deforming underlying products. The wire mesh panels also secure your products by limiting access to the rack systems making it more difficult for unauthorized removal of products. The wire mesh panels also protect your products from falling off the rack system. The wire mesh safety panel can protect boxes or products that are inadvertently pushed off the pallet. 

Workplace Improvement

Pallet rack safety backing can improve your warehouse, promoting a neat, safe, and orderly workplace. The galvanized look of the backing offers a clean professional feel to your rack system, giving confidence to visitors while not affecting your cooling or heating as well as your warehouse lighting.

Pallet Rack Backing Installation

The GALVA-DECK wire panels can be installed in two different ways — horizontally and vertically, depending on the use of the backing.

Vertical GALVA-DECK Installation

Vertical wire mesh panels mount directly to the pallet rack cross beams. Vertical panel installation requires the proprietary galvanized wire clips engineered to slide under the wire mesh decking onto the pallet rack cross beam. The vertical installation method is the fastest and least labor-intensive option available.

How to connect the vertical panels to the top bay of the pallet rack system

A support strut is needed when attaching the top panel to a pallet rack back system. This horizontal strut fastens to each upright frame.

Vertical Backstop Extension

Extension packs are available for scenarios where the pallet rack backstop must continue past the upright frame’s top. These extensions are simply attached to the rack system and panels with two side struts trimmed to length during installation.

Horizontal GALVA-STOP Installation

Horizontal wire mesh panels use galvanized brackets attached directly to the upright pallet rack frames, thereby minimizing the need to move existing products, etc.

How to use the horizontal backstop installation method when installing a backstop to racking that’s loaded with product

This method mounts the panels directly to the upright frame with a mount and hardware, allowing safety backing installation without moving existing products.

Horizontal GALVA-STOP Backstop Extension

Similar to the vertical setup, the horizontal installation method offers an expansion or extension pack. These are also simply attached to the upright frame with two side panel struts trimmed to length during installation.
