Mezzanine Floor Overview
A mezzanine floor is essentially a raised platform that is supported by steel columns and is totally independent of the host building. It allows you to create additional floorspace from wasted air space above your existing work and storage areas and can be used to create extra office, storage, production, or even retail space. This may double, or even triple, the amount of space available. They are probably the most cost-effective and efficient means of significantly increasing your floorspace and storage capacity and are a rapid alternative to relocation with minimal disruption.
What is a Mezzanine Floor?
Mezzanine floors can be as small as 2m x 2m or larger than 60m x 40m, and up to 6+ m tall. They can be one, two or three tiers high, have standard or special staircases, lifts or access gates, handrails or partitioning barriers. They can use wood or steel decking, be finished in special colours, and can be totally encased, if desired. In fact, almost any conceivable option can be incorporated!
There are no standard sizes of mezzanine, although the optimum grid size (distance between legs) is in multiples of 3.5 m x 4 m, with 2.4 m clear to the underside of the structure. The intended use of the floor will dictate the loading requirement. In practice it is usually based on a minimum of 70 lbs per ft2 for general office space, 100 lbs per ft2 for light to medium storage, and 150 lbs per ft2 for heavy duty storage or wheeled traffic. If required, your floor can be designed to accommodate much higher loadings.
Every mezzanine we supply is calculated and designed to meet your individual site and usage requirements. Because of the almost infinite heights, sizes, floor loadings and options available, the best course of action is to contact one of our specialist sales people and ask for a free no obligation site visit and quotation.
