Mezzanine construction is regarded as one of the most efficient ways of expanding industrial space. The steel mezzanine is one of the sturdiest mezzanine systems available. Steel mezzanines provide enormous structural support and are often used in warehouses and facilities as storage platforms. A few light industrial types of equipment can be mounted or placed on steel mezzanine platforms. They can be constructed from perforated, grated, or solid platforms and supported by columns and beams to minimize movement below. Steel mezzanines are great options for businesses and shops with large production areas.

How Steel Mezzanine Function

Steel Mezzanines provide more commercial and floor space in buildings with ceilings high enough for the mezzanine. A steel mezzanine must be engineered and designed to withstand seismic activity. Composite and non-composite metal decks are supplied to structural engineers and steel fabricators who construct the steel mezzanine to help the functionality of the steel mezzanine installation. Mezzanines have a load capacity ranging from 550 to 2204 lbs (250 to 1000 kilograms) per square meter. This adaptation of load capacity is due to a range of mezzanine floorings and beam dimensions. The walkways are made from chipboards or galvanized grids of 1.5 inches (38 millimeters).

Steel Mezzanine Installation

Steel mezzanines are constructed where there is enough room to accommodate the steel mezzanine. The roof and floor of the building already in existence should have a greater height. A structural engineer or fabricator should be the upfront man in the steel structure design to ensure that the steel structure design will be able to withstand the structural dead and live loads, stress, and diaphragm shear that the steel mezzanine is subject to.

Types of Steel Mezzanine

The different types of steel mezzanines include:

Structural Steel Mezzanine

Structural steel mezzanines can be the most cost-effective type of mezzanine floors, though they are heavier than other steel mezzanines. The structural steel mezzanine offers a more open feel. A structural steel mezzanine is an intermediate floor in a building that is partially level and is commonly between the roof and ground floor.

Building Column-Connected Mezzanines

Building column-connected mezzanines depend on the existing structure of the building for their support. The building columns on which this steel mezzanine depends are designed to support additional loads.

Other designs rely on blended support, in which the mezzanine system is partly supported by both the building structure and the columns. This method allows the foundation to carry and support its extra load.

Rack Supported Mezzanines

Rack-supported mezzanines are not too heavy. They offer a storage area and catwalk in a single unit. Rack-supported mezzanines are beneficial organizational tools and space savers that save cost by allowing huge storage. The shelving area of the rack-supported mezzanine can be adjusted once the unit is set up.

Rack-supported mezzanines are hard to rearrange and maneuver once constructed, so professional steel fabricators should be hired to construct the required design for the steel mezzanine.

Applications of Steel Mezzanines

  • Engineered structural steel mezzanines are ideal for heavy-duty settings.
  • They act as a form of work platform, storage deck, or second-story office.
  • Mezzanines can be useful to consumers in aerospace, education, retail, agriculture, transportation, food service, storage, manufacturing, outdoor recreation, and healthcare.

Benefits of Steel Mezzanines

  • They provide more space by allowing factories and warehouses to carry out more duties without disturbances.
  • They provide building owners more floor space at a minimum square foot, saving costs.
  • Mezzanines built inside a building do not require interior walls or a roof since all are already available.
  • Mezzanines increase overall efficiency in warehouses.
