    In recent years, the radio shuttle rack system has been more and more widely used. The storage capacity per unit of this type of shelf is much larger than other types of shelf structure, and it is suitable for the storage of materials with large quantities, small varieties and large flows, such as b

With the rapid development of the logistics equipment industry, it is believed that the technical content and precision of the mezzanine floor racking system will become higher and higher, the structure will be more optimized, the variety will be more complete, and the adaptability will be more extensive. It will play an important role in the development of the logistics industry. In this article, we will introduce the definition, features, and application of modular mezzanine floor.

1. Definition of the racking mezzanine floor

The racking mezzanine floor is to build an intermediate loft on the existing work site or shelf to increase storage space. It can be used as a two- or three-story loft, which is convenient for accessing some light and small and medium-sized goods and is suitable for multi-variety large quantities or multi-variety small quantities of goods. The goods are usually delivered to the second and third floors by forklifts, hydraulic lifting platforms, or freight elevators, and then delivered to a certain location by light trolleys or hydraulic pallet trucks. 
This type of mezzanine storage system usually uses medium-sized shelf racks or heavy-duty shelf racks as the support of the main body and floor slabs (depending on the total load capacity of the unit racks to decide which rack to choose). Floor slabs are usually cold-rolled steel slabs, pattern steel slabs, or steel grating slabs. In recent years, cold-rolled steel floor slabs have been used, which have the advantages of strong bearing capacity, good integrity, good bearing uniformity, high precision, smooth surface, and easy locking. The commonly used floor panels of Weixun are available in a variety of types such as ordinary flat, convex, hollow, and other types, and are easy to match the lighting system, and the access and management are more convenient. 

The overall structure of the pallet racking mezzanine floors is assembled, no on-site welding is required, and the whole is beautiful and generous. Compared with concrete structure or section steel structure, because the bottom floor shelf itself plays the supporting role of the upper floor, it has the advantages of low cost and high space utilization. This type of warehouse mezzanine system has many applications in the auto parts field, auto 4S shops, light industry, electronics, and other industries.

The load capacity of each layer of the unit rack is usually within 500kg, and the floor load is usually within 1000kg per square meter, usually about 500kg per square meter. Of course, sometimes the floor load around the main unloading area can be set larger. If there is no trolley in the aisle, but people are walking, it can be set to be smaller. The floor spacing is usually 2.2m~2.7m, and the height of the top shelf is generally about 2m, fully considering the convenience of man-machine operation. According to the storage capacity of the stored goods and the overall load-bearing capacity of the shelves, the mezzanine floor racking systems are distinguished. In general, they can be divided into the heavy modular mezzanine floor and medium-sized industrial mezzanine floor. The two kinds of warehouse mezzanine systems are similar in basic structure, but the difference in load-bearing is still very large.
According to the site and needs, it can be flexibly designed into two-story and three-story lofts to make full use of space and is widely used in industries such as automobiles, electronics, light industry, machinery, medicine, and e-commerce. Industry, use occasions, storage items, environment, temperature, cleanliness, and many other factors determine the difference of the shelf system. Usually, the mezzanine racking system is mixed with the combined steel structure platform system to become a comprehensive loft-type racking system. The commonality of these racking systems is that most of them are assembled and assembled light steel structures, and the surfaces are mostly electrostatically sprayed. 

2. Features of racking mezzanine floor

● Mezzanine floor racking can enhance the shelf height, make full use of storage height, make better use of storage space.
● The mezzanine racking system takes full consideration of humane logistics, beautiful design, generous structure. It is easy installation and disassembles, flexible design according to the field.
● Warehouse mezzanine systems use solid steel plate or solid steel checkered plate or perforated plate as the flooring. Compared with the pattern plate or steel grille, load capacity ability is larger, integrity is better, layer load is more uniform, the surface is more smooth, easy to lock, and so on.
● Single-tier or Multi-tier mezzanine can be designed, normally itis 2 or 3 tiers.
● It is suitable for storing many types of items.

3. The advantages of a racking mezzanine floor

● Installation is quick, clean, and straightforward.
● Multiplies surface space in industrial premises.
● The fully mountable-dismountable system allows vertical extension and reconfiguration.
● Custom designs fit any pre-built warehouse layout and budget.
● They can be complemented with a variety of shelving systems.
● Adaptable to the specific needs of the client, thanks to the great variety of sizes available, types of floors, construction systems, etc.
● High stability of the construction and, consequently, comfortable working conditions for staff on the upper floor.

4. Types of rack supported mezzanine floor

1) Structural mezzanine systems
The structural mezzanine system is supported by shelving which allows for maximum use of the floor. The supporting base of the mezzanine combines with this shelving system in the form of a walkway or structure flooring. The wide-span design eases traffic flow under the structure and is ideal for parts and product storage and conveyor support. If you need to store heavier cargo or need longer column distances, this mezzanine can be built with I-beams to support this usage.
2) Shelving supported mezzanine
Shelving supported mezzanine systems are an ideal option for expanding the storage of smaller items above shelving.  It consists of the second floor of decking over an entire lower level of shelving or pallet rack. The shelving serves as a base for the mezzanine and is an economical way to expand existing space. The second level consists of racks, shelving, offices, or work areas. They allow for relatively unlimited placement of items on the second floor. 
3) Rack supported mezzanine
This type of warehouse mezzanine system consists of high-rise racking or shelving. The decking is placed only in aisles. A rack supported mezzanine provides additional storage areas above or between pallet racks. It requires the shelving to be the same on all levels. This system allows for multiple locations for loading and unloading pallets simultaneously within the system.

5. The application of a mezzanine floor racking system 

In industrial applications, pallet racking mezzanine floors are semi-permanent floor systems typically installed within buildings, built between two permanent original stories. These structures are usually free-standing and in most cases can be dismantled and relocated. Warehouse mezzanine systems are appropriate for most kinds of businesses, from compact warehouses to massive DCs. In a very short time, a mezzanine installation can enhance your performance and provide a meaningful return on investment. Industrial mezzanine floor is frequently used in industrial operations such as warehousing, distribution, or manufacturing.
