Frequently Asked Questions About Mezzanines

Q. What is the best way to support my mezzanine?
Our team of specialists will be able to assist you in designing the most cost-effective way to support your mezzanine. Common solutions include structures created from a design containing a combination of: Beams, C- Section, Bar Joist, and Girder Joists. With our team of specialists we will be able to provide the best solution for your projects needs.

Q. Can my slab support my mezzanine?
We do not evaluate the capabilities of your current slab. However, we are able to provide loading information to an engineer of your choice to help determine whether your slab can support your mezzanine or if new footings are required.

Q. How do I determine the best decking option for me?
We offer several decking options for a variety of needs and use cases. Below, we will list a few of our most popular options and some of their benefits.

  • Bar Grating: Bar Grating is a strong and reliable decking option which allows air and light to move through. Will your product be rolling on your mezzanine? This is something to consider as bar grating adds more resistance against pallet jacks and carts compared to other options.
  • Floor / Diamond Plate: Plating is a very safe and durable decking option that is sure to last. Manufactured from steel formed into a flat plate studded with a diamond tread, it provides a slip-resistant surface that carts and pallet jacks can roll across with ease.
  • Resin Deck: Resin Deck comes in a variety of different panel types and finishes which have different capacities, making these a versatile option. The flat surface of this style of decking ensures great ease for rolling product. This type of flooring is laid over a metal B-Deck and is typically the most worthwhile decking application.

Q. What does PSF mean?
PSF is an abbreviation for Pounds per Square Foot, and is a measurement of uniform load capacity across your mezzanine. A standard mezzanine will generally support 125 pounds per square foot (PSF), but a variety of different materials can be used to increase the overall PSF limit of your mezzanine, making it more capable of handling heavier loads. Design load is the load in PSF averaged over the entire surface rather than a single heavy area on the structure known as a point load. Knowing the difference is essential when designing a safe mezzanine.

Q. Is there a minimum clear height for my mezzanine?
The minimum clear height under a mezzanine is usually at least 7'. This is also the same clear height between the decking of the mezzanine and the ceiling of your warhouse. Items to take into account when determining the clear height include positioning of lighting, sprinklers, and other obstructions in addition to any other items of concern as your jurisdiction evaluates.

Questions our sales team may review with you include:

  • What is the structure being used for?
  • What will be on top of the structure?
  • Will material on the mezzanine be moving regularly or stored long term?
  • Is the area dry?
  • Will the mezzanine be used for an inplant office?

American Surplus stocks the following used mezzanine manufacturers: Cogan, FS Industries, Burtman, Portafab, Wildeck, Steel King, Bluff, Cubic Design, SSI, and Panel Built Inc. mezzanines. Mezzanines may also be referred to as: Steel mezzanines, Free standing mezzanines, Prefab mezzanine system, Industrial platform, Free standing mezzanine kits, Modular mezzanine kits, Industrial mezzanines, Storage platforms, Industrial mezzanine systems, or Warehouse platforms.

There are numerous reasons you should consider a used mezzanine for your business. For example, mezzanines are a cost efficient way of utilizing the unused vertical space within your storage facility. A used mezzanine allows for increased storage capacity without increasing the square footage of your property. Additional square footage would mean additional property tax, but a used mezzanine would not be considered additional square footage for tax purposes.

Used mezzanines can be altered for your specific warehouse facility. We lay out your mezzanine with CAD drawings, ensuring that it is built correctly. Our professional sales team has sold many mezzanine systems in the past 30 years, and they will work with you to pick the most effective option for maximizing your storage space.

Mezzanines can also be expanded without starting from scratch, or building from the bottom up. With the proper thought, your mezzanine can grow with your business. ASI can install a used mezzanine or expand an existing one in as little as one day. This minimizes the amount of time the installation is disrupting daily activities within that facility.

As you can see above, there are many different styles of used mezzanines to choose from. Along with those options, there are also different types of flooring, stairs/laddersrailingssafety gates, and catwalks to choose from. Which of these you will utilize depends on your mezzanine, where it is located within your facility, and for what it is being used.

ASI currently utilizes several used mezzanines in our own storage facility in East Providence, RI. Our new office area is made of a used mezzanine with storage above, and we have another steel mezzanine for storage right next to one of our loading docks. As far as buying used material handling equipment goes, stick with ASI. We have been in the business of buying and selling quality used equipment for over 30 years, and our used mezzanines are inspected prior to shipment to ensure your satisfaction.
