Choosing the right industrial mezzanine flooring is just one aspect of the design process.
Before we delve into the types of flooring available, lets first establish what is a mezzanine.
What is an Industrial Mezzanine?
An industrial mezzanine is a steel platform and flooring system installed as an additional level inside a warehouse. The structural aspects of a warehouse mezzanine include solid steel vertical posts, horizontal I-beams, and support trusses.
The structural system is then outfitted with a flooring material which we will delve into deeper below. Finally, the mezzanine is complete with safety fencing around the entirety of the platform, to ensure the security of warehouse employees, machinery and products from falling over the edge.
Types of Industrial Mezzanine Flooring:Industrial mezzanine flooring will be either bar grating, metal decking or more commonly synthetic plywood. Sometimes, mezzanine platforms will be completed with concrete flooring; however, this does impeded the ability to move the mezzanine in the future.
Synthetic Plywood (ResinDek)
Metal Decking (Metagard)
