Wire mesh decking is widely used in pallet racking. In order to ensure the normal use of wire mesh decking and prolong its service life, the correct maintenance method is very important. In this article, we will introduce the maintenance methods of pallet rack wire mesh decking to help users maintain safe and long-lasting results.
Wire mesh deck for pallet racking will accumulate dust, dirt, and other impurities during use, affecting its appearance and use. Therefore, regular cleaning is the first step in maintaining the wire mesh decking. You can use a soft brush or high-pressure water gun to clean the surface of the wire mesh decking to remove the dirt. Meanwhile, for some stains that are difficult to clean, can use appropriate cleaners to deal with them, but be careful to choose cleaners that will not corrode the metal surface.
Check and Repair:
Regularly check the overall condition of the wire mesh decking, including whether the pallet rack wire mesh decking holes are deformed, whether the wire mesh decking wires are loose and whether the connections are firm. If any damage or looseness is found, it should be repaired in time. For small damages, welding or tying can be used to repair them. For larger damages, it is recommended to replace the whole wire mesh decking to ensure its integrity and safety.
Wire mesh decking is susceptible to oxidation and corrosion, especially in humid environments or when exposed. Therefore, anti-corrosion treatment is an important measure to extend the service life of the pallet rack wire mesh decking. Anti-corrosion treatment can be carried out by using anti-corrosion paint or galvanization to form a protective film to prevent the wire mesh decking from contacting the external environment and to slow down the speed of oxidation and corrosion.
