MEZZANINE FLOOR WITH A DIFFERENCE

Mezzanine floor with a difference

Creating a stockroom with height was a challenge. Especially when there was a slab above. It all started with banging a hole through a concrete slab at around 6 metres off ground establishing a void to allow for ground plus 2 tier mezzanine floor to be built.

Mezzanine floor with a difference

Once all the rubble was removed and the dust had settled, it was time for First Office Storage Concepts to get to work.  Another obstacle to overcome was the light weight concrete slab that we had to place our uprights onto.

                   Plinth

Installing a plinth under every frame assisted in distributing the load over a larger floor area.  Plinths included a 5mm gusset under each upright for strength and rigidity .

A welded foot of 120 x 200 x 6mm was bolted onto the plinth for support and stability.   The plinth was then anchored into the slab with 6  M12/75 chemical anchors.

Installation

Installation started and as
each component was carefully
placed into its position, so the store came together.  Working on 2 tiers of mezzanine floors can get a little complicated but with the right drawings and a great installation crew it seemed to be quite simple

Components

114 x2.5mm Floor panels were installed suitable for
the movement of merchandise trolley’s.  Perforated 229 x 2.5mm
floor panels placed between for ventilation and smoke extraction
2 Staircases measuring 1900mm wide connected the 2 mezzanine floors at strategic places.  Incline reversible Conveyors  moved the stock from ground to first and second floors.

Completion

From catwalks  to timber decks for packing of stock – to open floor areas for bulk storage. Down to the last detail of weight load signs,  First Office Storage Concepts can be proud of the final result.
