to allow safe transfer of materials
This 320 square metre mezzanine floor enabled the packaging team to dramatically increase their production capacity, almost doubling the number of workstations to 12 in a key production area.
As you would expect in a busy production area, safety was paramount. The structural steel columns were sunk into the concrete floor to remove trip hazards and fitted with column guards for maximum protection. Two pallet gates were also installed to safely transfer products and packaging between the levels.
As part of the project, Thistle Systems created a secure storage space on the ground floor to accommodate an existing mobile shelving system. Thanks to their knowledge and expertise in designing and installing mobile shelving systems, Thistle’s project team was able to dismantle, reconfigure and install the mobile shelving in the new area.
The finished mezzanine floor featured heavy duty wipeable floor tiles installed upon particle board flooring together with safety rails, fire escape stairs and finished with galvanised steel panels and easy clean grey partitioning to create a contemporary finish.
To ensure operations could continue throughout the build process, Thistle Systems specialist project team developed a phased works schedule which enabled the mezzanine floor to be installed over 5 weekends.
