Benefits of a Structural Steel Mezzanine
Structural steel mezzanines allow for a much greater column spacing than any other mezzanine system. Electrical conduit, water pipes etc. can be easily run through open web bar joists. Open web bar joist give a much more "open feel" than standard beams, giving the illusion of more clear height. Structural I-beams can be used to minimize the "deck profile" of mezzanines.
Drawbacks of Structural Steel Mezzanines
Structural steel mezzanines are much heavier than most other systems so will have a higher dead load and a higher floor load. The increased weight will also increase freight cost from factory. Structural steel mezzanines have a rougher finish than any other mezzanine floor system.
