Benefits of Cold Rolled Steel Mezzanines
Cold Rolled Steel Mezzanine floor systems are made from sheet metal so they are much lighter than structural steel mezzanines. Cold rolled steel also has a very smooth finish so they can be easily used in "display" applications or public buildings. Cold rolled steel can be pre-galvanized and this offers a substantial savings over hot dipped galvanized, stainless steel or aluminum mezzanines.
Drawbacks of Cold Rolled Steel Mezzanines:
Cold Rolled Steel Mezzanine Systems are very limited in column spacing, usually 10' - 15' and generally no more than 20'. Cold rolled steel mezzanines can reach all common live load capacities, but are unable to reach the high live loads or heavily concentrated point loads.
