Boxspan® mezzanine floors are commonly used in warehouse and factory environments. The floors work in a similar way to upper floor frames in residential construction. Where they differ is the industrial mezzanine and commercial Boxspan® floor frames are designed to support greater trafficable and storage loads. Floors are typically designed to 2kpa (200kg/m2), 3kpa (300kg/m2) to 5kpa (500kg per m2) live load capacities. Mezzanine floors can also be designed for office and retail use. All floors are provided with full design working drawings.
Adding a Boxspan mezzanine floor adds greater usable space and saves money by not having to move to bigger premises.
Long-spanning Boxspan floor joists allow for better access under with fewer columns required.
Boxspan floor frames are supplied as a complete, fully designed, kit system making it quick to install and minimising disruptions.
Exposed Boxspan floor joists leave a tidy finish under the floor as they are closed steel sections.
For office, retail and industrial use
To cater for stair and racking voids
To maximise headroom height with choice of beams
Some mezzanine floors will require larger spans to cater for forklift access or clear working space under. For these applications the Boxspan floor frame system can be easily connected to structural beams and columns to maximise access below. Where floors meet up against factory walls generally a waling plate beam or steel angle is bolted to brick/block walls.
