If your business is growing, then chances are you face either having to lease more space or steep construction costs. Republic shelving supported mezzanines and multilevel systems offer a cost effective storage solution to today’s expansion needs. Take advantage of your existing vertical space and save money by installing a Republic mezzanine shelving system. To assure you of the utmost structural integrity and safety, all designs are made with the help of an engineer. Our designs comply with both AISC and AISI specifications and building codes.
These systems are based on our clip shelving. You get all the benefits of Republic clip shelving while being able to have multiple levels of it. This includes the ability to adjust shelves on the clips without tools. This lets you easily change up your storage when you need to. We make splices for both angle and beaded style post uprights. This will let you stack new shelving units on your existing ones. No need having to replace the uprights you already have. Our clip shelving scales up easily to meet your storage needs.
Decking Options for Mezzanine Shelving
Republic has a few options for the decking of your multitier shelving system. Our steel bar grating allows light to shine thru to the lower level and helps with air flow. Grating also lets sprinkler systems rain down on lower levels. Using grating often removes the need for lower level sprinklers.
You can get roof decking for your mezzanine shelving with either a plywood floor or a steel floor. The plywood floor has a smooth surface that carts can roll on. The plywood can come coated in either polyethylene, resin, or fire retardant materials. The steel floor is easy to clean and can come in either a smooth finish or diamond texture. It is a great choice for either food processing or chemical plants or any facility that requires frequent clean up.
Multilevel shelving systems with catwalks are ideal for adding to the capacity of shelf storage. In most cases, the catwalk supports can be fastened to either the shelving or rack uprights, so you won’t need free standing columns. When needed, we can add structural columns to support the mezzanine framing members.
Deck over shelving supported mezzanine structures combine the features of both the free standing and multilevel styles. Like multilevel shelving, you can install deck supports onto existing shelving uprights. As with free standing mezzanines, the upper level is free for storage, assembly work, or office space.
