Need to add space to your premises?

Mezzanine Floor and Offices

Storage and interior concepts have just recently finished a large installation for a company based  in Sileby, Leicestershire. The project included a large mezzanine floor with first floor offices, meeting room and storage area. This helped the company expand over the existing machine area which was wasted space. The project was completed on time, within budget and to the satisfaction of the customer.

If you are looking to create additional office or warehouse space – cost efficiently, the give Storage Concepts a call to discuss further for a Free consultation and CAD drawing.

Pallet racking – recent project

Recently installed pallet racking

Pallet Racking (Daventry) – a recent project for Storage Concepts

Pallet Racking installed at a site in Daventry by Storage Concepts Ltd has increased the storage capacity by utilising the available headroom within the warehouse.

The Pallet Racking was designed to maximise the height by following the contour roof elevation of the building to increase the number of pallets stored.  This has provided the customer with greater flexibility, full utilisation of the warehouse building height which has meant that they have been able to have a smaller, more compact stores and release more areas for assembly and production.

Storage Concepts range of pallet racking was utilised to maximise the opportunity which provides storage for euro pallets 800mm wide front picking face x 1200mm deep weighing 1000 kgs each, storing 3 x 1000 kg pallets on a 2.7m wide beam providing 3000 kgs storage per level.

The Storage Concepts range of pallet racking is fully adjustable and totally flexible and is designed to accommodate any size of pallet, any weight.

Client Testimonial – May 2012

I would like to thank you and your team for the hard work that they put in to achieve our deadline on the office refurbishment.

The initial phase to strip out and refit four floors of our office block, within just seven weeks, was an extremely tight and vital target for us to achieve, incorporating as it did the Group’s data centre.  Although it was touch and go your team pulled out all the stops and we were up and running on the Monday morning as planned.

Right from the CAD drawings at design stage, through to final fit outs, your approach was very professional and the work was completed to a high standard.

The total cost of the refurbishment was circa £300,000 and, given that these refurbishments tend to be one-off, I would have no problem in recommending you for similar projects.

Good luck in the future.

I would sincerely like to thank you and your staff for the excellent service you provided.

When we first purchased our larger premises our biggest concern was the state of the offices and the empty warehouse, we knew that to fulfil our time schedule it would take an exceptional team of people.

We gave you five weeks to complete the total contract, you did this, but more than that you designed and created a great working environment for all of use.  It has made such a difference to our staff and working day, I am sure productivity will beat all records.

Could a suspended ceiling save you money?

With ever increasing cost of fuel and power to heat a factory, production or warehouse area.

.. many companies should consider suspended ceilings.  Look at the picture, we have installed a suspended ceiling in a typical production machine shop.

Suspended Ceiling

The existing machine shop has a high roof eaves height of 8m to 9m and we have installed a suspended ceiling quickly and easily which not only provides a better working environment but saves significant fuel costs on heating a smaller cube rather than a larger cube.

Suspended ceilings by Storage Concepts can be quickly and easily installed into factories, production, warehouse and retail areas.  They are quick, easy and economical to fit and will provide a better overall aesthetic appearance as well as retaining heat and sound attenuation.

For further details regarding installing a suspended ceiling at your office please contact Storage Concepts on 01664 410414 or use the contact form here.

New Client Testimonials – April 2012

Our company undertook a major reorganisation programme of our manufacturing facilities, which involved stripping out numerous existing mezzanines and installing larger more complex floors in their place.

All this work had to be carried out to strict timescales and with minimum disruption to our production schedules.

Storage Concepts played an important role in our modernisation strategy from preparation of the initial floor designs, including structural surveys, through to installation of the mezzanines, access stairs and landings.

The complete package of works was carried out to very high standards, on time, working out of normal hours and over holiday periods, and importantly with no impact on boat production.

I express my sincere thanks to your company and yourself for the co-operation and commitment you have given to ensure the success of our modernisation programme.

Clothing Manufacturer

Nottingham

—————————————

I thought I should record our thanks for the work you have done for us over the years.  Our relationship with Storage Concepts goes back more than 15 years when you fitted out the office and designed and built the warehouse layout for our first site in Nottingham.  The office furniture is still in use and looks nearly as good as it did then.

During this time we have grown and now occupy warehouses in other parts of Nottinghamshire, including a 30,000 sq.ft. shed that both companies worked on to design a storage facility for rolls of fabric.  I seem to recall we need trailer loads of melamine board!

When we move into the new premises you planned and built our racking layout for 7500 pallet locations, which we were delighted with an have since added a further 1500 pallet locations.

We have ambitious growth plans and Storage Concepts will get the call when we determine where and when our next warehouse will be.

What are the Pallet Racking Standards

UK Pallet Racking Standards

Pallet Racking

There are no specific Government standards laid down for the manufacture and / or installation of pallet racking.  Each manufacturer designs and produces their own system based on their manufacturing capabilit, design standards and patents.

All UK manufacturers however are signed up to the SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association) Code of Practice which dictates design criteria and also specifically assists and guides contractors in relation to best practice for onsite installation.

All pallet racking installations must be fit for purpose and as such are designed to support specific loads over a given area.  The racking designer will choose the product depending on the design loads and other criteria available from the client. This, together with information provided by the manufacturers technical support team, will allow the installation to be value engineered and designed fit for purpose with suitable specification of frames, beams and loads considering pallet dimensions and handling criteria.

Once the installation has been completed safety load signs would be affixed to the installation by the racking contractor for operational guidance.

It is then the operators responsibility to ensure that all personnel working within the new rack system are suitably trained and that regular rack inspections are undertaken to ensure that the installed equipment is maintained to the highest safety standards.

Storage Concepts recommends weekly on-site inspections by the client with a six monthly rack inspection by a suitably qualified outside agency.

Minimum Mezzanine Floor Loadings

Mezzanine floor loadings.

At Storage Concepts we are often asked the minimum loadings a mezzanine floor can be built to, well the answer is 4 . 8 knm2

We can manufacture Mezzanines which require a larger loading depending on what the end user is intending to use the additional space for, whether that be storage or an office area.

Storage Concepts would have to check the existing floor conditions to ensure the floor can support the point loads imposed by the new mezzanine floor columns; such as concrete thickness, ground bearing pressure and so on.

In circumstances where this information is not known, then our team will carry out a bore hole test to establish what the floor conditions are like. If needed we would have to install foundation pads to support the new mezzanine floor columns.

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.
