Rack Supported Floors

What is a Rack-Supported Mezzanine Floor?

Rack Supported Mezzanine floors are a very practical way of utilizing the (often wasted) space above racking. This form of mezzanine is built from pallet-racking materials and is generally the most cost-effective ways of building a mezzanine.

A “floor over racking system” is simply an area of racking with a “lid” on top, effectively creating a new floor level.

The racking structure supports the floor and its contents above.

Rack Supported Mezzanine Floors integrate pallet racking into the floor space below the mezzanine.

The need for structural steel columns is completely removed from the project. The support of the floor is usable pallet racking.

With rack-supported mezzanines, either aisles are built between the racking rows or complete platforms are built onto the racking units themselves. This means that a wide variety of shelving & racking systems can be used with the floor.

What Are The Benefits of a Rack-Supported Mezzanine Floor?

Mezzanine Floors

Structural steel uprights are used to support a single additional floor level ‘in the air’.

This floor level can be constructed from either timber or steel floor media, depending on the floors intended purpose.

This floor level can be used for storage, manufacturing, or additional office space. Lifts and stairs can be integrated to provide a wide range of access options, depending on the floor’s intended purpose.
