Punch Deck™ is a corrugated pallet rack decking designed with a 50 percent open area in the deck surface. The punched steel rack decking allows air to circulate through the racks and also enables overhead sprinklers to reach every level of a pallet rack system. Punch Deck’s easy slide on and off surface reduces product damage and snagging typically seen in other 50 percent open decking products such as wire decking. Backed by scientific research and controlled testing, Punch Deck™ steel rack decking was FM Approved in 2010, verifying its lasting performance while complying with today’s fire protection codes. With various sizes and load capacities, our punched steel rack decking is sure to be the ultimate decking for any pallet rack application, fitting nearly all types of pallet rack and cantilever rack.
