What is heavy duty mezzanine flooring and why is it important?
Mezzanine heavy duty flooring is manufactured to withstand the demands of an industrial or warehouse setting. It’s installed to maximise unused vertical space and can provide additional room for storage and other purposes. Crucially, mezzanine flooring can be installed free of existing structures. They will usually be installed as semi-permanent structures allowing for their removal or modification as workplace needs change.
Typically, mezzanines are constructed from steel to make them capable of withstanding the requirements of heavy duty, fast-paced industrial and commercial settings. They are designed by structural engineers to maximum optimum safety and efficiency. Because they are bespoke, they are suitable for a wide range of settings. They can be made practical and robust for industrial settings or designed for stylish retail use.
Heavy duty mezzanine flooring will usually consist of primary beams that provide the main support for the mezzanine and will span across the columns. The joists span between the primary beams and are the fixing points for the columns. The columns are distributed across the mezzanine to spread the weight. Decking then provides a stable, strong surface with sufficient support for the chosen installation.
