Mezzanine Floors - Structural Steel Floors

Mezzanine floor is a phrase that most people recognise as meaning a suspended or supported floor erected within a building having not been part of the original structure. Mezzanine floors are an essential element of most warehouses these days, offering additional work or storage space without adding to the building footprint - something for nothing almost!

A very cost-effective way of utilising redundant vertical space, Redifloor mezzanine floors are easy to install with minimum disruption to your business. Access to the new platform can be gained with some form of lifting device such as a conveyor, a goods lift or forklift truck and bridges, walkways and cat ladders can be added to improve access or add functionality.

Railing

Employees must be able to work in a safe environment. An important aspect is a solid railing surrounding any raised floor which is in accordance with the safety and inspection rules.

  • A railing is solidly attached to the floor. 
  • A railing consists of a kickrail around the floor, knee bar and handrails. 
  • A railing has no unprotected openings.

Mezzanine floor railings from Dexion not only meets all these points, but are also ergonomically shaped to provide a firm grip. The system has been designed to that there are no sharp points or edges and all the corners are rounded.  The components having a scratch resistant powder coated finish. 
 

Stairs

The stairs are fully compatible with the railing, they have a handrail on both sides creating a very stable stairway. There is a full choice in widths, angles and steps.

Pallet gates

The swing gate provides robust protection. Because the swing gate shuts automatically through a concealed suspension system, it is always securely closed. From below the forklift driver gently pushes the pallet through the swing gate. When the pallet is removed, the gate shuts automatically behind the pallet.

A tilting pallet gate gives the best protection. Either open or closed, it’s permanently secure.

Goods elevator

Instead of or in combination with a pallet gate, it can be very efficient to transport your goods by an elevator. The elevators are surrounded by a safety mesh wall, are callable from each floor and have various safety features, options and possibilities. Elevators come in a choice of weight class and size.

How to choose the right flooring

With a mezzanine floor, HI280 shelf floor or P90 pallet racking floor there are several options when it comes to choosing the type of floor.

Light output, any fire requirements and whether or not to use pallet trolleys on the floors are of importance.

Chipboard flooring (thickness 38 mm.)

Affordable and reliable standard solution. Optionally provided with a white finish for optimal light reflection. The top surface is either standard chipboard or can be finished with an anti slip layer or decoration.

Steel grid floors

Steel grid floors have the advantage of allowing natural daylight to pass through which radiates out illuminating the area beneath.

The fire brigade can also specify open grid floors in combination with smoke flues and sprinkler systems.

Steel grid floors are very strong, long lasting and can be used in combination with pallet trolleys when a fine mesh is used.
