Mezzanine Floor installed in a large distribution centre

Storage Concepts undertook the design, delivery and installation of a large 2 tier mezzanine floor to provide additional storage capacity within a large distribution centre.

Mezzanine area size 93 m long x 22 m wide = 2046 m2 per level x two levels = 4092m2 = 44,030ft2

 

The mezzanine floor is serviced by staircases and conveyors and is used for small medium parts storage.

As well as designing and installing the 2 tier we also undertook a turnkey package where we extended the existing sprinkler systems within the building and provided all the lighting and electrics together with small part shelving bays and widespan racking.

We had to extend the mezzanine floor columns through the wooden floor and fixed the base plates to the solid concrete floor below.

A recent Mezzanine floor project in north London for a silverware manufacturer

Storage concepts recently completed a complicated mezzanine floor in north London for a silverware manufacturer. Because of the shape of the building the mezzanine had to be cantilevered in many areas. The installation had a very tight schedule due to the client having to move out of their existing premises before Christmas. One hour fire cladding was also installed due to personnel working on the 1st floor. The installation was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. The customer commented that the whole process was 1st class and the installation “brilliant”.

Mezzanine Floor – from single to two-tier

From Single Tier to Two Tier

Mezzanine Floor

Storage Concepts  Ltd recently completed a substantial installation for a major packaging supplies company who were expanding on a huge scale in Derbyshire.  The project entailed dismantling  an existing single tier mezzanine floor that Storage Concepts had previously installed some 5 years ago and dismantling all the shelving and mesh cages that were on the mezzanine floor.  All of the materials were removed from the premises and taken to Storage Concepts fabrication factory where the existing steel work was re-fabricated so that different finished floor levels could be achieved to enable the customer to use the space as efficiently as possible for stacking their packaging products.

Two tier mezzanine floor

The existing area where the mezzanine floor was originally situated was totally cleared and all of the existing floor fixings were sheared off to leave the floor in near perfect condition for new pallet racking to be erected in that area.  The re-fabricated steelwork was then delivered back to site and completely installed into its new position as a two tier mezzanine floor, including re-fabricated staircases and the addition of extra floor space.

The whole process was completed within budget and within the time-scale that was set and the customer was extremely pleased with the end result which did not result in them losing any productivity and has enabled them to increase the amount of products they can now store to fulfil the new contracts that they have.
