If you are thinking of installing a mezzanine floor, chances are you will be engaging the services of a professional raised storage company to supply and install your chosen design. There are several important questions you should ask any potential raised storage supplier to make sure you are getting the best deal and adhering to all official safety regulations – here are some of the most important ones.
What Kind Of Floor Is Best Suited For My Business?
You may know what your business needs, but you may not know exactly what kind of storage would be best to fit in with those requirements. Any reputable storage company will be able to help you choose the best raised storage solution for your business. Advise them of your business objectives and the day to day workings of your business and they can help choose the best raised storage solution, whether it’s a mezzanine floor, pallet racking or a completely customised solution.
What Is The Maximum Weight Of Goods I Can Use?
When installing a mezzanine floor, you need to be mindful of weight limits for your chosen raised storage solution. Advise the storage company of what you plan to use the mezzanine floor for and they will be able to tell you what kind of raised floor design will be the most suitable to fit with your plans. You could use it for extra office space, stock storage, staff rooms or changing rooms for example and each option will have different limits.
Do I Need Any Safety Accessories?
Many raised storage solutions will need to have safety accessories included, such as handrails and balustrades to prevent accidents. Depending on the design of your mezzanine floor, the installation company will be able to advise exactly which accessories need to be part of your system for them to be compliant with work health and safety regulations.
Do Your Mezzanine Floors Comply With Safety Regulations?
This is probably one of the most important questions to ask any raised storage company when you are wanting to install any form of raised storage. Any reputable company will be able to guarantee that their products are fully compliant with current Australian safety standards. If you cannot get confirmation that their components conform to Australian safety standards, then don’t choose that company.
