We offer a variety of types of mezzanine flooring to suite whatever your application may be. Four of the main types of decking we offer are below.
Things to Consider When Choosing Mezzanine Flooring
Here are some important questions to ask when choosing mezzanine flooring:
- What type of traffic will the mezzanine floor be exposed to?
- Does the floor have to hold a certain amount of weight?
- Do you want water (from sprinklers) and light to go through flooring?
- Will the mezzanine floor need to be cleaned often?
- Will the flooring need to hold heavy machinery?
Types of Flooring We Offer
We offer four types of mezzanine flooring:
Composite Resin Board over 1½” Corrugated Steel Deck
This is our standard mezzanine flooring (and most popular) engineered for mezzanine decks and comes in a variety of grades and with different finishes such as a Gray Diamond Seal®, Clear Diamond Seal®, ESD and standard unfinished panels. It is engineered to be more effective than plywood and great for practically any application.
Open Steel Bar Grating
This is our second most popular flooring. Positives: very heavy duty and open design lets light, dust, etc pass through. Plus, if you have an existing sprinkler system above, the water will pass through to the area below and additional sprinklers may not be required below the mezzanine. Negatives: The open design is not good for pallet jacks (any carts with wheels etc because it can be very bumpy).
Diamond Plate over 1 1/2″ Corrugated Steel Deck
Options: Aluminum or steel. Aluminum diamond plate has an attractive finish and can be sprayed down to clean and will not rust. Steel can be polished nicely as well but can rust unless painted. Positives: Diamond Plate is heavy duty and can take a beating. Negatives: Expensive. Not a perfectly smooth finish and seams are not as neat as resin board.
Open Steel Planking – Galvanized
Positives: This type of mezzanine flooring has some similar positives to open steel bar grating. It lets light and dust pass through and can also save you from having to install sprinklers with the mezzanine because it lets water pass through from above. It is also less expensive than steel bar grating. Lastly, it is resistant to rust. Negatives: This type of mezzanine flooring can only support up to 125 psf and is also more complicated to design with and install.
