How is it installed?

To install Tecrostar mezzanines you need 2 adults (they do not need to be DIY experts). It is recommendable to use personal safety equipment like gloves, boots, etc. in order to avoid accidents.

When installing range L mezzanines you may need to use some type of scaffolding or ladder for working at heights and manual or electric lifting machinery to raise the primary beams, particularly if the structure is more than 3m high. The other ranges can be lifted easily by hand.

You will need the following tools to install the mezzanines: tape measure, some type of spanner for m10 and m8 bolts and a screwdriver (an electric screwdriver will make the task much easier), spirit level, drill and a tool for cutting the panels (saw, jigsaw, circular saw, etc.)

You can find all the tools required to assemble it and tested by Tecrostar in the tools section.

All the models are installed by following these steps:

Pre-assemble the structure on the floor in the desired area.

Raise the outer structure to the desired height.

Finish assembling the structure and floor.


What is the delivery time?

Once the product has left our facilities, the normal transport time is between 6 and 8 weeks. The transport time varies greatly and is difficult to control due to many factors: Place of delivery, local holidays, customs, etc.

If we cannot meet this delivery time, we will contact you.


Can I install the mezzanine in my apartment? Will the structural floor bear the weight?

Yes, you can. As they are manufactured with light steel profiles with a high yield point they are very light and the load per column is very low. The only restriction is the storage load on the mezzanine: instead of 40.96lb/ft², it may be reduced to 1764lb for the whole mezzanine. A home with a concrete structure usually supports a point load of at least 441lb on a surface of 2x2". The T8 mezzanine weighs 439lb and the T15 mezzanine weighs 785lb, both weights are distributed over 4 columns. You can install either of these two metal mezzanines in your home, provided that the load stored on them is limited. Ask Tecrostar about the specific features of your project.


Does the kit include the flooring boards?

Yes, it does. They are structural boards made of 18mm thick european radiata pine plywood. They have tongue-and-groove joints in their four sides.

Length: 81 7/8"

Width: 24"

Thickness: 3/4"


Can the stairs be placed outdoors?

Yes, our products can be installed outdoors, although you should bear in mind a series of special considerations and carry out maintenance of the material to guarantee that they are in good condition. See this section for more details


Can the stairs be anchored to a mezzanine or construction wall?

Yes. They can be installed on a surface that is not a Tecrostar surface. The customer must bear in mind that they are responsible for the strength of the joint and structure to which they are anchored.


How are the stairs anchored to the top?

If you need to anchor the stairs to a structure that is not a Tecrostar structure, see the following details about the anchors:

Anchor A

Faq Sections

Before starting
You should understand that...

You can install a Tecrostar mezzanine without any construction work or special tools. You can install it yourself easily and safely. The most outstanding feature of the kits is that one structure can have multiple height, width and length configurations. They are mezzanines in kits, in modules, adjustable, extendable and customisable. The following demo videos show how they work.


Which mezzanine do I need?

After understanding how they work, the next thing you need to do is choose the structure that best suits your needs. To do this, we shall focus on the height at which you want to assemble your mezzanine. There are 4 ranges according to the height and each range has various mezzanines according to the surface area:

“S” Range- From 63" to 91 6/8" high

Perfect for making a mezzanine, loft bed, a modern micro-loft in the home or office or for creating a small storage space in the garage or attic.

“M” Range- From 67 3/4" to 110 3/4" high

Perfect for creating a small office, living room or storage space in a garage or a warehouse.

“L” Range- From 82 1/4" to 134 5/8" high

Much more than a mezzanine. For large spaces in work areas or light storage.

“XL” Range- From 92 1/2" to 149 1/2" high

Mezzanine for industrial use, it enables pallet jacks and shelving units to be used.Altura Altillos


More than one mezzanine suits my needs, which should I choose?

We might have various models of mezzanine that meet the dimensions you need. In this case, follow these criteria:

1- Load-bearing capacity

2- Maximum span (distance between columns)

3- Beam height

4- Height of the mezzanine above the decking you need

Mezzanines
What load do the mezzanines support?

The metallic Tecrostar mezzanines of the S, M and L ranges support a uniformly distributed load of 40,96 lb/ft² (that means that you can place a 40,96 lb distributed load on each square ft). This is the live load for residential uses according to the international regulations. The total maximum load will be 40,96 lb by the ft² of the mezzanine.


What are the available colours and finishes for the mezzanines?

The steel pieces of the structures, railing posts and stringers of the stairs are available in:

  • Black and white. Available in stock without additional costs.

  • Any RAL monolayer colour. The personalized colour has an additional cost formed by two different parts: a unique and fixed cost of $125 that is specified after adding the items to the cart, and a percentage cost that is specified in the price of each product when choosing RAL colour option.

The delivery time of the personalized colour option is longer than usual, so it is recommended to ask the Customer Service Department about the delivery times.

In both cases the paint is a lacquer with maximum adhesion applied by electrostatic process with polyester powder paint, suitable for outdoors.


Does the kit include the flooring boards?

Yes, it does. They are structural boards made of 18mm thick european radiata pine plywood. They have tongue-and-groove joints in their four sides.

Length: 81 7/8"

Width: 24"

Thickness: 3/4"

About legislation
Tecrostar legal considerations

Tecrostar Mezzanines are movable assets referred to in Article 335 of the spanish Civil Code: “all the items that can be transported from one place to another without detriment to the property to which they were attached are considered as movable assets”

Moreover, the article 334.3 of the same code excludes Tecrostar mezzanines from the immovable property concept defining the later ones as “everything attached to the property in a fixed manner, that can not be separated from it without breaking the matter or deteriorating the object…”,


Is it necessary to protect the mezzanine against the fire?

FIRE RESISTANCE OF THE MATERIALS INCLUDED IN TECROSTAR MEZZANINES

Tecrostar mezzanines are formed by several pieces of different materials and coatings, therefore the classification of the fire resistance (reaction to fire) is different depending on the material. This fire reaction classification of the construction products and building elements is defined in the european standard EN 13501-1, commonly called Euroclasses.

The classification of each material type used in Tecrostar mezzanines is indicated down below:

Steel pieces without treatment

A1

Steel pieces black-painted 9005 (polyester powder paint)

A-s1,d0

Steel pieces white-painted 9010 (polyester powder paint)

B-s2,d0

Boards of the supporting floor. Structural chipboard for humid environment P5 (EN 312-P5)

D-s2,d0

 FIRE STABILITY OF TECROSTAR MEZZANINES

Tecrostar metallic mezzanines have a bearing structure formed by columns, steel primary beams and steel secondary beams, as well as steel connectors and screws. This structure is not endowed with neither any type of passive protection nor intumescent treatment. Because of that, a fire stability greater than the one provided by the steel on its own is not guaranteed (no longer than 10 minutes, according to the literature related to steel construction).

The fire stability requirement of a mezzanine during a certain time will be determined by the usage of it (above and under it). It is the responsibility of the owner to comply with the current legislation applicable in the town where the mezzanine is located. Depending on whether the mezzanine is installed in an industrial environment or in a domestic atmosphere, on its size, location, etc. the regulation can or not demand a certain fire stability to that bearing structure.

You can consult with Tecrostar technical department for further information.

Technical Guarantee Section
Design and manufacturing process

Our production line is oriented towards quality criteria, paying special attention to safety and functionality. Thanks to the close contact with our customers, we observe lots of upgrades, new products and needs that allow us to keep on improving.

Firstly, we conduct a market research, analyzing social needs and demands and observing existing products. Then, we think about the different alternatives, related to the possible options to be developed, from which we choose the most appropriate procedure. To develop the idea, we take into account the providers involved and the time planning.

The next step is the pre-design of the product, with the realization of diagrams and plans, the definition of preliminary characteristics and the estimation of costs. Next, a feasibility study is carried out and the prototype is designed. Then, calculations and assembly are carried out, with prototype plans, cuttings, choice of materials and finishes. After these stages in the manufacturing process, this first product is tested to verify the validation. If everything is correct, the prototype request is made, the technical and assembly documentation is developed, the prototype tests are carried out and the tests and installation are carried out, observing the possible problems of operation and assembly.

Once again, a validation test is carried out again and, if all the conclusions are optimal, the product is standardized with technical and commercial procedures. In the last phase of the process, the cuts are made, the products are coded and the manuals are designed. Then the descriptions are written, the images are designed and the videos of the products are edited. Finally, prices are established and proceeds to the start of the sale.
