Adding a structural mezzanine can be the most economical way to increase your warehouse storage space while saving you the cost of a conventional building expansion. Mezzanines enable the warehouse space to be utilized to its full potential by doubling or tripling the surface area. They can be designed as storage areas, changing rooms or offices, among other applications.
Mezzanines offer the following advantages:
They are quick, clean and easy to install.
They can be completely disassembled; all parts can be reused, and their structure, size or location can be easily modified.
The wide range of sizes, floor types and construction systems mean the mezzanines can be adapted to meet specific client needs.
They can be complemented with a variety of shelving systems.
The structural mezzanine is ideal for large spans and medium to heavy loads. The columns are made of "I" structural profiles. Holes are drilled into the beam flanges so that the beams can be held in place using lateral brackets. The secondary beams are embedded in the primary beams and are joined together by brackets bolted to the beam cores.
Our structural mezzanines can be designed to handle heavy loads from 100 lbs./ft – 300 lbs. / ft. The support columns can be space in large spans up to 26' x 26' allowing for lift truck movement. A typical bill of material will include: columns, column base plates, leveling shims, main beams, secondary beams, floor, floor support angle brackets, floor attachment clamps, handrail, staircase, swing gate and up and over gate.
The heavy-duty structural steel construction system enables various floors to be installed one on top of another. A range of floor types are available to cover a variety of needs, depending on the load, type of work, lift truck use, ventilation requirements and other factors. Mezzanine flooring types include wood flooring, wood flooring with corrugated metal B-Deck, bar grating, metal grid and perforated steel panel decking.
Mezzanine Safety Railings
The protective railings consist of round and rectangular tubes joined together by flanged attachments. Protective kick boards are fitted around the bottom to prevent objects from falling off the mezzanine.
The stairs are sturdy and easy to install. Staircases of 8, 10, 12 or 15 steps can be installed, depending on the distance between the ground floor and the mezzanine floor. Extra flights of stairs are required for staircases over 15 steps. Staircase configurations include: single flight of stairs, two continuous flights, two flights of stairs at 180 degrees angle and two flights of stairs at 90 degree angle.
The swing gate opens inwards, with a stop at the bottom and a security latch at the top. It permits access to goods, from outside or limits the work area. Our unique “up and over pallet gate” is the best system for creating a product loading and unloading bay when lift trucks and pallet forks are used. It has two positions, depending on the direction if access, which prevent the area from being entered by both parties at the same time. The weight of the assembly is balanced to make it easier to open and close the space. The safety zone is an area that is corded off by railings, creating a space exclusively for depositing goods, whenever a loading and unloading is required.
