A mezzanine is essentially a half story between two other stories. When you add a steel mezzanine to your modular building kit, you’re exponentially increasing the usefulness of your space by adding additional floor space within the same building footprint.
If, for example, most of your metal storage building needs a large clear span with high ceilings, say for heavy machinery. But you have room in the back for smaller vehicles, which means the area above those shorter vehicles is completely free space – and if you use it right, extra square footage of floor space at a low cost. You could add a mezzanine floor toward the back and double your storage space with steel shelving. Vehicles underneath, and whatever else you want to store on the mezzanine. You could also use the addition of a mezzanine as office space, without taking up any floor space on the main level.
For metal homes, a mezzanine kit is a simple, cost-effective way to add more floor space and living room. A residential mezzanine is basically a loft, and we have lots of customers who add one to their homes as an unenclosed bedroom or office area.
A steel mezzanine doesn’t have to be above-ground, either. Want a full basement or a crawl space under your building? Worldwide Steel Buildings mezane kits are completely modular. We can supply the joist you need for your main level floor and tie an underground mezzanine into your building package as required.
Of course, we offer a variety of additional accessories for your mezzanine, as well. Like the rest of your building kit, a mezzanine is modular, so you can add what works best for you. From handrails to safety rails, straight stairs to lateral stairs to ladders, bed railings to the framing for a steel loft bed TS, floor kits to steel shelving.
Why Worldwide Steel Buildings Mezzanine Kits?
Worldwide Steel offers the easiest, most efficient, most durable mezzanine system available in a steel building kit. No matter how you design it, your steel mezzanine kit will be delivered on the same pallet as the rest of your building package, prepped for you to DIY erection of your new steel building from the ground up through the mezzanine floor to the roofing. Because our mezzanine kits are bolted directly to the steel trusses of your building’s walls, the mezzanine appears to be free standing, with no columns needed to support the decking above.
From start to finish, we make the construction process easy for you by doing more, better quality work in our manufacturing center. For our mezzanine kits, that means easy installation of steel floors with high load-bearing capacity.
When you receive the components of your steel mezzanine, the bar joist simply bolts in place and has pre-punched /pre-welded clips set up for your 2” x 10” floor joist. These mezzanine bar joists can be set at whatever height you request and can be supported by columns or hung from the roof trusses.
Whether you want to do-it-yourself or hire a local contractor, we offer DIY building kits from 12’ wide through 100’ wide with as many options and accessories as you want. With buildings in all 50 states and several other countries we will design your building to meet the local codes and loads required.
