Wire decking, or racks, serve a very important purpose in the safety of your storage space. Racks, and all storage, need to work with your existing fire prevention systems in order to be safe. What a perforated deck will do for your storage facilities is allow water to sluice through the rack in the event of a fire, allowing flames to be extinguished beneath the racks. This essential safety feature makes the racks an active participant, not a hindrance, to the safety of your facility. This also helps your tire rack to pass important fire safety codes and keep you operating. The ratio of holes to solid deck gives good support to the tires and will not leave marks on the tires in the portable rack.
Another style of stacking rack uses wire mesh decking. This decking is less expensive than perforated metal decking and has larger openings in the deck. This is a good option if your tires are in and out of your warehouse rack frequently and the wire deck doesn't have time to leave marks on your product. Naturally, the least expensive portable stack rack for tires has no decking at all. The inner and outer rack beams are located so they support the tires. This works best if you do not have people standing on the rack as they load or unload the tires, since the rack beams do not provide as secure a work surface as a deck does.
