Many commercial sheds often feature their own mezzanine floor surfaces. Such a surface creates a strong level that adds to your storage space or your general floor plan. But you must look at how accessible this surface is when you plan it.
A commercial mezzanine floor has to be built with accessibility points in mind. There are many ways how such a surface can be made to be easy to reach.
A Proper Staircase Can Be Versatile
You will have to get a stairwell added to your commercial mezzanine floor as you plan it out. You can use either a straight staircase or one that changes its direction in the middle. You could use a small flat panel space in the middle of the stairwell if needed too. This adds a stopping point in the middle of the stairs while also creating more support for the weight of the stairs. Plenty of supports would be required for the stairs like with everything else used around the floor.
An Opening For An Elevator
Perhaps you have a need for an elevator that can handle massive loads you wish to move up and down. You can get an opening in the middle of the floor for an elevator. You would have to plan this based on the mechanical features that come with the elevator unit itself. Those mechanical parts will take up extra space to allow them to stay operational.
Review Doors In the Area
Watch for how any doors around the mezzanine are organized appropriately. The stairs and other entry points for the floor should not obstruct any doors, windows or other openings. You might have to review the floor plan within your shed to see how the floor is placed alongside all the other features in your spot.
Your commercial mezzanine floor should be planned accordingly to provide you with a great layout that is easy to read and provides support for all the accessibility needs you might hold. Contact CBS Sheds if you need help with getting a floor ready while making it accessible.
