What is a Mezzanine Floor?
A mezzanine floor is a suspended and supported floor, which is installed into a building or warehouse that was not part of the original structure. These mezzanine floor are an essential part of most warehouses these days, due to the fact they can offer additional office or storage space without adding to the building.
A mezzanine floor will consist of four major structural component columns, joists and decking beams and the column uprights which are made of boxed section steel. The beams are a section of steel member that will run across the top of the columns sitting on the cap plates. These can be absolutely any length and are securely bolted to the columns. The decking can be number of options, chipboard or open steel grid or even solid steel mezzanine floor.
