A mezzanine is an intermediate floor between the main floors, or between the ground floor and the roof of a building. This could be used to create additional work or storage space.
Our mezzanines are semi-permanent which means they can be relocated at a later stage. One advantage of using Stimber long span beams is that fewer, if any, vertical supports are required thus increasing the clear space beneath the mezzanine. Another advantage is speed of erection resulting in less disruption to normal activities.
A 1400m2 Mezzanine floor had to be installed with minimal disruption to ongoing works. The lighting was fitted to the steelwork prior to installing the decking media, to ensure continued visibility in the workspace below.
This warehouse was already fully stocked with truck tyres that could not be removed as it would be too disruptive. We erected a 700m2 Mezzanine over the already packed warehouse floor solving a major space problem for our client.
Galleries & Balconies
We also specialize in galleries or balconies. We have done numerous projects all over South Africa since 2001. This service is necessary when additional seating is required in auditoria, arenas, stadia, places of worship etc. Our design team does a complete survey of the building to establish maximum seating efficiency with the least disturbance to existing seating configuration, while determining the optimum rake angle to achieve ultimate line of sight between audience and speaker.
