A mezzanine consist of intermediate support columns, main beams, joists and a deck (that is fastened to the joists with self drilling fasteners). The clear height below the mezzanine beam ranges from 3-4m above FFL.
Mezzanine support columns may be square tube sections or built-up I-sections as required by design.
Mezzanine beams are built up I- sections normally spanning in the direction of rigid frame rafters.
Mezzanine joists are built up I -sections that are normally spaced at 1.75m (+/-), for a 100mm thick concrete slab, joists frame into the mezzanine beams with a flush type connection.
