Attaching the mezzanine


One of the most important sections is attaching the mezzanine. For greater safety and stability we recommend attaching the columns to the floor with the fixings supplied with the kit. In addition, we recommend attaching the mezzanine to the adjoining walls in order to stabilise the structure. The components for attaching the structure to the wall are also included.

Anchoring the columns to the floor

Anchoring the columns to the floor adds stability to the structure. We always recommend anchoring them, especially if mezzanines are installed in places where the columns can be knocked into (circulation of forklifts, etc.).

If the mezzanine is installed in a home and it is attached to the wall you can purchase column base kits so you don’t have to anchor the columns to the floor.

Attaching the structure to the wall
Depending on the number of adjoining walls, there are different systems for improving safety and stability.

Key:
A) Wall fixations (supplied with the kit)
B) Stability bar
C) ‘Z’ stability kit
D) Stairs (the stairs stabilise the structure)
E) Wall stability bar

5. Three walls


Stability kits are not required but you do need to attach it to the walls. It is important the wood floor is rounded off against the walls.

Type of wall anchor


The walls can be made of different materials, according to which one type of bolt or another must be used to attach the structure to the wall.

M1 – CONCRETE: Screws with plastic anchors
M2 – SOLID BRICK: Screws with plastic anchors
M3 – HOLLOW BRICK: Chemical anchors
M4 – HOLLOW PARTITION WALL: Metallic expansion anchor with screw
M5 – WOOD OR BOARD: Screws can be directly used.
