Mezzanine Flooring

A mezzanine floor is a self supporting steel structure which usually stands on an existing concrete slab to create additional useable floor space within an existing building. The uses of these structures are as varied as the imaginations of our customers but generally fall into four categories

Storage Platforms:

The basic mezzanine storage platform can be custom designed to suit a variety of storage needs. The basic storage platform is designed to support a UDL (uniformly distributed load) of 500kg per m2 and allows for the use of a hand pallet truck carrying a 500kg pallet. We can increase the UDL or point loading capacity of a platform to suit any special requirement. Automatic fire detection and emergency lighting should be extended to the underside of the structure.

Working Areas

Working areas similarly to storage areas are designed to suit your loading requirements. Suitable access should be considered for disabled persons and fire protection should be fitted to the underside of the structure. Particular regard should be taken of escape routes from the platform to enable people to safely exit the building in case of a fire.

Platform Retail Premises

Generally retail premises have a lighter loading requirement than storage areas. Very often the supporting columns on these areas need to be kept to a minimum. Feature staircases and handrails are also generally required. Suitable access should be considered for disabled persons and fire protection should be fitted to the underside of the structure. Particular regard should be taken of escape routes from the platform to enable people to safely exit the building in case of a fire.
