About WireCrafters’ Rack Enclosures...
WireCrafters panels and doors used with our rack enclosures are made of 10 gauge wire welded in a 2" x 2" square mesh, so you know they are strong. The end panels attach to the pallet rack end with flush mount angle clips.
Back panels attach to the rack with angle clips, and WireCrafters stocks three different mounting clips that allow an offset which ranges from flush mount (or no offset) up to 6". These mounting clips allow your pallet load to overhang, but still maintain inventory security and safety for workers.
Offset clips come in lengths up to 12" long, so you can mount panels between back-to-back rows of pallet racks. This provides a strong and secure wall to two rows of rack.
At WireCrafters, we manufacture enclosure panels the same width as your beam to give your facility optimal security for your products and inventory stored on existing pallet racks.
