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.

Patents

The mezzanine systems manufactured by TECRO have legal backing on all levels of protection. In 2007 we acquired the Spanish patent TecroOne for our industrial structures. One year later, the TecroStar brand was born. The brands TECRO, TecroOne and TecroStar are currently entities registered in Europe.

In addition, TECRO Montadores holds both the Spanish and international patents for manufacturing telescopic mezzanines. Similarly, like most companies who operate within the law, we have a series of duties and rights that if breached could lead to significant infractions and legal penalties.

Any user or customer can read our Privacy Policy, published here, which sets out the limits to using the information and images that appear in the aforementioned section. TECRO is also supported by a Team of Legal Advisors to guarantee the reliability and quality of our products.

Experience

TECRO's experience in all types of sectors guarantees a good result. Our story begins in 1999 as assemblers, assembling the products of storage system manufacturers. Over the last two decades we have created more than 3,750,000 ft² of surface area, making use of the height of our customers’ spaces.

Over the years we have developed projects for brands like Amazon, Primark, Seat-Volkswagen, BMW, Airbus, Kawasaki, Tuc Tuc, AR Sistemas, Harley Davidson, KTM Bizkaia, Ulma, Gas Monkey, Ead Casa, and others.

We are the only Spanish company dedicated to researching, designing and assembling portable high spaces for all kinds of purposes. We currently have distributors in Spain, France, Italy, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Assembly of the prototype

In the final design phase the prototype is assembled in the test area; possible improvements to aid assembly or optimise the product specifications are studied.

When the prototype has been validated, it is standardised and published.

Validation and Testing

At TECRO we carry out exhaustive studies of the mechanical behavior of our removable mezzanines to produce robust and stable structures. In our facilities we have a material resistance testing area, with a press of up to 15 tons, which allows us to carry out exhaustive studies of the real behavior of various components: beams, boards, steps, joints ... which serve to validate the theoretical results of the calculation programs.

In the tests to flexion the deformation and ultimate resistance of the components is verified.

Calculation method

TECRO products come with a 10-year guarantee. Our technical solutions comply with the most demanding European building regulations. In fact, we have sat on the Spanish Governing Board of the FEM (Federation of European Materials Handling).

The calculations are based on the Eurocodes, current European regulations. Other standards are also taken into account, such as the Spanish Technical Building Code (CTE), the Structural Steel Code (EAE), ISO 14122, etc.

Pursuant to this legislation, various safety coefficients are used:

  • Coefficients of Load Increments (1.5 for live loads and 1.35 for the weight of the structure itself)
  • Partial strength coefficients for each type of material (1.01 for steel used for columns, beams, connectors, etc.; 1.25 for components used for joints and hardware; and 3.25 for the P4 chipboard panels for the flooring).

Various programs are used that aid 3D mechanical design and structural calculation with endless components.

Quality of the materials

Tecrostar products are manufactured with the most suitable materials for the proposed technical solutions, combining wood, steel and top quality aluminium.

  • The steels used for beams, columns and other components are fit for structural uses with a high yield strength (S235, S275 or S3555, as required). The pieces are manufactured using maximum precision laser cutting, folding and pressing processes. Next a powder coating is applied and they are baked in the oven, offering maximum adhesion and an outstanding finish.
  • Structure hardware grade 8.8
  • Anodized aluminium apt for outdoor use
  • The wood panels used for the mezzanine flooring can be made of European radiata pine plywood or high density structural chipboard. All the boards are tongue and groove on all four sides to prevent faults and unevenness at the joints of the modules.
  • Other wooden components, such as the steps and parts of the handrails, are made from top quality beech.

TECRO has earned certification from the AEM, the federation of Spanish materials handling. We have also received a Gold Medal Award of Merit from the INPEX (Invention and New Product Exposition), the top award for innovation at the largest Invention Exposition in the USA.
