Is the floor tailored? How does it fit to my dimensions?
The kit includes as many boards as needed to install the mezzanine in its maximum dimensions.
To install the mezzanine in smaller dimensions, it is necessary to cut the boards as it is explained in the installation manual included in the mezzanine kit.
Is there any other alternative to the wooden floor?
No. Mezzanines Online does not have a different flooring alternative. However, it is possible to personalize the finish of the floor by adding some accessories on the boards (carpet, platform,...). Check our floor finishes in accessories section. If the customer installs a different floor from the boards provided, it is their responsibility to ensure the resistance of the full mezzanine, since the floor contributes to the stability of the whole.
Can I have two heights?
No, you can’t. At the moment, our mezzanines are available just for a single height although some customers install them on another existing mezzanine. In that case, the resistance of the existing one should be checked.
What load can support the beams if I hang something from them? (E.g. a punching bag)
It depends on the beam type, we need to calculate the corresponding surface load. For example, a secondary beam TM 15 supports around 1234 lb. You should take into account that if we apply additional loads, a part of the bearing capacity of the beam is being consumed.
If you have any doubt about important additional loads, contact our technical department.
Can I install a mezzanine outdoors?
MezzaninesOnline products can be installed outdoors (in the open), provided that the following considerations are taken into account, which define the structural, environmental and material maintenance calculation conditions.
Products with wooden components and load-bearing floors can be installed outdoors or in humid environments when a specific waterproofing treatment for wood is applied and maintenance is carried out on a regular basis.
It is not advisable to install products with electrical components outdoors.
If you want to install MezzaninesOnline products outdoors or in humid environments, we recommend you to request the waterproof treatment that provides additional protection to the steel parts, increasing their durability against those atmospheric conditions that can cause corrosion.
Structural Calculation Considerations
Outdoor installation involves forces due to snow and wind, which depend on the geographical location, altitude of the site, etc. These actions have been taken into account in the calculation, with certain maximum values that must be compared with those of the area where it is installed, to ensure that these limits are not exceeded.
The value of the snow load corresponding to the zone must be subtracted from the use overload supported by the mezzanine to the dimensions that have been installed. As a guide value, MezzaninesOnline structures can be considered to withstand a minimum use overload of 200 kg/m², and therefore the load of snow that a mezzanine can withstand outdoors is very high.
The mezzanine can be installed as a canopy outdoors by installing the stability kit, contemplating the case of a complete obstruction when it is placed against a façade, or free if it allows air to pass through its lower part. A wind speed of 100 km/h is taken as a reference. The regulations of each locality must be consulted to check that these limits are not exceeded.
Under no circumstances should the sides of the building be closed, as this implies greater horizontal forces that are not included in the calculation.
The columns of the mezzanine must be fixed to a solid base that resists the actions transmitted by the mezzanine. MezzaninesOnline offers guidance as to the type of footing or foundation required under the columns, but it is the customer's responsibility to check the final strength of the terrain.
When the mezzanine is required to be placed on a grass or soil type surface, some type of footing will be necessary. The modular foundation system shown below may be a good solution, although it is up to the client to check it through the technician responsible for the project https://piloedre.es/
Environmental conditions and performance of materials
The metallic steel pieces are lacquered with paints suitable for exteriors. MezzaninesOnline structures have a thermosetting polyester polymerised powder coating, with a coating thickness between 60 and 80 microns.
Corrosivity category C2 has been obtained, of medium durability, when submitting the pieces to the tests, according to the criteria of the European Norm EN ISO 12944 of May 1998: "Protection of steel structures against corrosion by means of protective painting systems". Examples of typical environments for corrosivity category C2:
● Interiors: buildings without heating where can be condensations (warehouses, sports centres,…)
● Outdoor: atmospheres with low pollution levels. Mostly, rural regions.
The medium durability of the lacquer covers a period of 5 to 15 years. The standard states that durability is NOT a "warranty period". Durability is a technical consideration that can help the owner establish a maintenance programme. That is, tests are performed for a specified number of hours under uniform conditions applied to smooth surfaces. The reality is that climatic and environmental conditions are very variable.
It is to be expected that after some time the structure requires retouches of painting on small zones, like edges or corners that can present beginning of oxidation and loss of the brightness. It is recommended to polish these areas to remove the rust and then apply the paint. The edges of steel parts are the parts most prone to corrosion and where rust first appears, in fact, these areas are not evaluated in salt spray tests, as the standard does not contemplate them.
MezzaninesOnline does not advise the use of metallic parts painted in white for exteriors, since the appearance of rust is appreciated much earlier than in black.
When the visual inspection indicates that paint retouching is required, careful attention should be paid to all edges or corners that may show signs of oxidation and loss of gloss. It is recommended to polish these areas to remove the rust and then apply the paint.
If the mezzanine is to be installed outdoors in a marine or coastal environment, maintenance recommendations should be carried out more frequently, due to the corrosive power produced by the existence of salt and moisture. Try to control the oxidation process to avoid further deterioration. In this case, it is recommended to polish the affected areas to remove the rust and then apply the paint.
The aluminium handrails of the rails do not require any special maintenance, as all of them are subjected to surface treatments that guarantee their outdoor performance (anodised silver, black lacquer or with a wood effect).
The load-bearing floor of MezzaninesOnline mezzanines consists of structural plywood panels. It is intended for indoor use in a humid or protected outdoor environment in accordance with EN 636-1-S. The customer must apply a lasur* or specific waterproofing treatment for wood to the floor and to the exposed edges, which protects the surface and prevents water from penetrating into the tongue and groove joints of the panels and affecting the edges.
Likewise, all wood pieces (steps, wooden strips, etc.) must be treated with some type of water-resistant paint or varnish to prevent moisture from penetrating and the material from cracking, and therefore losing its mechanical and aesthetic characteristics.
The wood pieces should also be maintained, checking that the applied surface protections (varnishes or paints) have not deteriorated, and treating them if necessary.
The presence of water in puddles or “ponds” on the mezzanine should be avoided. To that end, the mezzanine should be installed with a slight slope to facilitate the water evacuation and to avoid its accumulation (approximately 2%). This unevenness can be achieved by installing levelling plates under the highest pillars of the structure. Drains can also be created for the same purpose.
* It is a product for outdoor uses that is more appropriate than varnish because it offers a high resistance, does not create a layer on the surface it is applied, controls humidity, gives a waxy finish and provides a wide range of finishes.
Can the mezzanine be installed without columns or removing a column? Attached to walls
No, our mezzanines are sold with columns by default. We cannot guarantee the resistance of walls or corbels and the customer will be responsible if the product is modified in these cases.
Can I install the mezzanine in a sloped floor?
Yes. Provided that the inclination is small, we can use a wedge under the mezzanine columns to level it. If the inclination is too small it might be not necessary at all and the slope might be imperceptible.
Can I install it in a room with trapezoidal or irregular walls?
Yes, you can, because the structure does not need to be in total contact with the wall.
When the walls are irregular or when you want to work around a fixed object, the decking can be finished off against the wall
Can I install the mezzanine at a lower or higher height than indicated?
It is possible it to be lower it requires to cut the columns and drill again though. On the contrary, it is not possible it to be higher. The cut of the columns can be made by the customer or order Mezzanines Online to do it.
Can it be installed as an extension to an existing mezzanine?
Yes. This is quite common and the results are very good. The telescopic system of the columns enables the height to be adjusted every 4 3/4", so in the worst case scenario you will have a 2 3/8" difference.
Can I install a mezzanine making modifications of it?
You can make aesthetic modifications, but any structural modification non approved by Mezzanines Oniline will be under customer’s responsibility.
Can the columns be installed moved to the corners?
Yes. The columns can be moved to the corners up to 1/5 of the total length of the structure. This feature allows you to work around the walls, switches or furniture you have on site without compromising safety.
Can I add extra columns to distribute the weight?
Yes, you can. However, the maximum load capacity will be unaffected.
How is it installed?
To install 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.)
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.
How long does it take to install?
You can do it yourself with the help of a friend. It is easily installed in a few hours, depending on the product. The times are a guideline and for assembly only. You need to add the time it takes to measure up, move the components to the location, clean up, etc.
This website is foreign to MezzaninesOnline. It puts installers and customers in contact, so the price and the responsibility for the installation are the installer, not MezzaninesOnline.
How is the product shipped and received?
The mezzanine floors are packed and shipped by an external agency in a lorry provided with a lifting platform, so that the boxes can be unloaded on the ground. The order will be delivered at street level to the address specified by the customer.
If there are access restrictions, there could be additional costs due to the necessity of transferring the merchandise to a smaller vehicle.
In order to deliver mezzanines XL, the delivery location should be accessible to a truck/long trailer. Should you think there is any kind of restriction, please contact us. The customer should take care of the merchandise unloading process. That unloading should be made from the lateral sides of the truck (this kind of truck does not have a back liftgate). We deliver the product packed with pallets at the bottom, so its unloading should be made preferably with a forklift.
How is the package and what are its dimensions?
Depending on your order you can receive different packages: One box for the mezzanines of the S and M ranges or two boxes for L mezzanines.
Height: 21 1/4"
The stairs can share the box with the mezzanines if they are purchased at the same time or you can have a separate box for the stairs. Check the stairs section.
How do I get the product up to my home?
Don't be alarmed by the total weight of the product, the components are light and manageable, so you can move them easily and take them up in the lift.The heaviest components are the primary beams from the L range (86 lb), the rest of the ranges are considerably lighter (26.5 lb).The floor panels are very light and fit in any lift. No component is more than 94 1/2" long and therefore, fits in most lifts.
However, it is important to mention that in the case of the XL range, some components may be a little heavier.
Do I have to ask for a building permit or license to assemble my mezzanine?
No, you don’t. Our products are completely removable and reusable, therefore, they are considered as PERSONAL PROPERTY.
The mezzanines with an industrial usage require neither a building license for their assembly nor meeting the maximum constructed surface limits of the pavillion. As they are removable and hence personal property, they are subject to the same legal regime as the machinery, the racks, the vehicles, etc.
What if the access to the delivery address is complicated?
Sometimes, the carrier cannot access to point of delivery due to an extremely narrow street or any other difficulty. In such cases, the carrier cannot do the delivery with the usual truck and he may need to use a different vehicle or extra support.
If the carrier considers that the point of delivery is complicated, request a quotation. If you don’t inform in advance that the access is complicated, the delivery will be paralysed until you pay the extra cost.
Quality of the materials
MezzaninesOnline 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 aluminum 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.
