Wildeck’s mezzanines and work platforms provide a new level of space to a facility. Mezzanines provide this extra space without the need for a costly expansion or the purchase of another facility. This makes these products great for not only saving money, but overall allows your current facility to be more efficient. Getting to the finished product involves a lot of decision and planning; below we go through the components and factors you should consider when wanting to implement a mezzanine in your facility!

What is the Application?

How the mezzanine will be used determines the size, style, and access of the mezzanine project. Is it being used for storage, in-plant offices, multi-use, or something else? How will the mezzanine integrate with your process? Where will the mezzanine be located in your facility? These are questions we ask in order to understand how to implement the mezzanine that is right for your facility!

How you plan to use the mezzanine also helps determine the structural system. Columns spaced below the mezzanine floor can allow for specific equipment you may want under the mezzanine. These columns, along with access gates and stairways can be placed in areas of the mezzanine where they do not interfere with equipment or personnel operating under the mezzanine floor.

Understanding your Facility

In order for a mezzanine to be installed safely and effectively it is important to know if your facility’s floor will support the mezzanine and load. A slab analysis can be done in order to measure the PSI of the concrete, thus indicating the specific design features that must be incorporated into the mezzanine platform.

Meeting local, state, and national building codes, as well as OSHA safety requirements are vital for a safe working platform. Wildeck and Bode will work closely with this information throughout the design and installation process to incorporate the appropriate number of stairs, landings, access gates, guards, and railings.

The Installation

Bode Equipment Co. offers an experienced Wildeck Mezzanine installation team that understands what goes into an installation. The project can be as quick as a few weeks depending on aspects such as size, style, etc. Wildeck uses a modular design for its mezzanines, which allows for easy dismantling and relocation should you decide to expand the project in the future!

In Conclusion

Bode and Wildeck together offer a great finished mezzanine product. Wildeck’s years of experience in designing and manufacturing mezzanines, along with Bode’s expertise in installing and dealing with Wildeck products combine to provide a fully installed and safe mezzanine platform for your facility.
