How to build a Mezzanine floor

How to build a Mezzanine floor.

The mezzanine floors arrive in a number of major components, for example beams, c section, stair stringers, steps, columns, cleats, flooring, nuts and bolts, cross bracing components.

The components will arrive on a large lorry and is then off loaded by the experienced mezzanine floor installation team with the use of the customers fork lift truck or a hired fork lift.

The components are sorted and the main beams will have the cleats bolted to them. Each main beam will have a number written on the side and by looking on the drawing the main beam position can be established . The main beam is fork lifted to its proposed position and lifted to the correct height enabling the columns to be bolted to the underside of the beam, its then held/ tied or fixed temporarily so the installation team can lift a second beam and then c section beams are bolted to the cleats so the the two main beams are fixed together , this process continues until the whole structure is built.

The columns are then checked to ensure they are plumb and then cross bracing is installed to give the structure it’s required design strength. The columns are then bolted to the floor. All the above installation is carried out via mobile scaffold towers.

The installation team will then start installing the mezzanine flooring material which is normally 38 mm thick tongue and grooved particle board. The team will have to start going onto the platform so we would have to ensure they carry out the installation safely, we may have to use mobile platform towers under the leading edge of the new flooring , or the team will ware harnesses or we would have to install netting to the underside which all will help to prevent any serious injury if any of the installers should fall off the platform.

When the flooring has been installed we would then install the stair stringers , steps and bolt it to the new structure and the floor.

Any handrail and loading gates are then installed.

The structure is then checked to ensure its level , all bolts tightened , it’s cleared of all waste materials, cleaned and loading signs installed. Then you are ready to use the new space, whether that be office space, warehouse or show room.

What planning permission do I need for a mezzanine floor?

What planning permission do I need for a mezzanine floor?

Storage Concepts Ltd of Melton Mowbray design, manufacture and install mezzanine floors. We provide CAD designs of the new structure which shows the new proposed mezzanine floor in the location where it is intended to be installed, before the installation we require to submit the drawing to an independent building inspector or the local authority for approval of the layout and their recommendations as to what and if fire protection is required.

We would normally contact an independent building inspector who we have worked on many projects with for his initial thoughts, they can give approval within 24 hours so we can start the manufacturing process. As long as the mezzanine is built to their recommendations then they will provide a full building completion certificate at the end of the installation after they have completed the inspection to ensure its built to the correct recommendation. They would also inform the local authority of the proposed installation and the date it is due to start.

If you need any further information regarding the installation of a mezzanine floor, regulations regarding the build of a raised floor then please do not hesitate to contact Storage Concepts on 01664 410414.
