Using Mezzanines by Panel Built to Create Extra Space
Mezzanines by Panel Built are a great way to add extra space to your work floor without spending a lot of money and without the hassle of dealing with a lot of construction dust and distraction. An excellent alternative to remodeling that allows you to create usable space from thin air are mezzanines.
Mezzanines are typically created from steel, whether traditional or coil rolled. The unit allows you to build upwards by creating a secure foundation that is minimally invasive to your current workspace. The foundation, consisting of several steel beams, holding a flooring system, still allows you to use the space underneath for work. In essence you are creating a second floor within a single floor.
If you are considering the use of mezzanines in your industrial space, here are a few things you should know:
Steel vs. Coil-Rolled Mezzanine
There are benefits to both steel mezzanines and cold-rolled mezzanines. Steel is strong and very durable, which means it will hold a lot of weight. Steel mezzanines are able to hold more weight and they allow for more room underneath between the beams. This means that you can better utilize the space underneath for storage or work. The structural mezzanines are capable of storing heavier weights. If you need to store a lot of heavy product or equipment and you don’t have a lot of room to work with a traditional mezzanine is a great option.
Cold-rolled mezzanines are crafted from steel that has been bent into a “c” channel. This process makes cold-rolled mezzanines available online, lighter and cheaper to ship. Despite their lightness they are very sturdy and able to hold a fairly significant amount of weight. But, they are not designed to hold as much weight, specifically as much concentrated loads, as a regular coil-rolled unit. If cost is a huge factor, the cold-rolled product may be better suited for your uses. Due to lighter weights and the pre-galvanization process, you’ll save more money on shipping. In addition to weight and load baring capabilities, you should keep in mind that cold-rolled mezzanines are pre-galvanized, which means less hassle and a little less expense on your part.
No matter which type of prefabricated steel mezzanines you opt to purchase, you can ensure durability and attractiveness safely by adding a coat of paint or powder. Each of the items you purchase can be customized by color or powder. This will help protect the steel from external damage and provide a way to create a cohesive-looking working environment.
