Thomas Conveyor & Equipment uses five types of framing designs for our mezzanine and equipment platforms:
Spans up to 20 feet. These spans are usually formed from flat structural steel and are typically used in small to medium sized mezzanine applications.
Beam & C-Section
An I-Beam and C-Section combination allows for spans of more than 20 feet in one direction, while keeping the depth of the structure to a minimum. This particular combination can be used for any sized mezzanine application.
Beam & Beam
A wide-flange beam design is used, which allows for heavy loads and unusual span sizes.
Beam & Bar Joist
This pairing is used for medium to large mezzanine systems where wide spans and high capacity is needed.
Bar Joist & Girder Joist
This set up provides an open web in both directions and is typically used for large projects or in large spans where a high capacity area is needed.
