Punch Deck

Home / Products / Decking Products / Punch Deck

Punch Deck is corrugated steel decking designed with flanged holes that create more than 50 percent open area in the deck surface. The open space in the decking allows air to freely circulate through the deck and also enables overhead sprinklers to reach every level of a rack system.

If you know that you require open decking, we can integrate and install Punch Deck into your existing storage system or design and install an entirely new system for your warehouse that includes this unique decking solution.

Punch Deck is ideal for a wide range of applications due to its smooth surface and open design that allows for airflow. These include full pallet loads, loads with slip sheet bottoms, retail stores, mattress storage, carpet storage, garment storage, hand loaded boxes and cartons, bagged items, furniture, and food.

FM Certified

Punch Deck was granted an FM Approval* on December 17, 2010. Punch Deck Plus (see below in Options) was granted an FM Approval on May 8, 2012, both for open shelving for racks.

What does this mean? Punch Deck provides a 50% open area for common rack sizes in surface, which allows sprinkler water through to lower levels. This helps protect your products in the event of a fire.

Why is this certification important? “Industrial and commercial companies around the world rely on products and services that are FM Approved and specification tested to protect their properties from loss. The FM APPROVED mark, which is backed by scientific research and testing, tells customers your product conforms to the highest standards.” – www.fmglobal.com

Heavy-Duty Decking with a Smooth Surface

Punch Deck’s repeating bends provide uniform strength across the entire shelf and minimize local distortions. These bends also allow it to nest on each other for shipping, allowing up to 3 times more square footage to be shipped on a single truck than most other deck products.

Engineered for safety and ease of use, Punch Deck has a flat surface that makes it simple for material handlers to load, organize and unload without snagging materials. It fastens to the step beam with tek screws, preventing accidental dislodgement. It sits flush with the top of the step beam, allowing for easy labeling on the face of the beam.

Bright, galvanized finish gives your warehouse a sleek, hi-tech look that is easy to maintain. Punch deck can also be powder coated to your color requirements.
