Office platforms are modular office spaces created using mezzanine platforms. Mezzanine platforms are raised floors supported by structural components, such as columns, beams and fasteners.
The goal of office platforms is to both create office space and generally increase workspace. Users may use the office platform as a ceiling or as a floor. The space above or below the floor usually functions as storage space or extra workspace.
When designing your office platform, mezzanine manufacturers consider factors like: weight capacity per square foot, workspace surface area (dimension), building ceiling height, application/industry standard requirements and building codes.
While they offer a variety of standard layouts and prefabricated parts, they also take your application into consideration and make only the best choices for you. Usually, manufacturers construct office platforms from strong materials like galvanized steel, though the treatment of the metal base depends on your application. For example, if people will be walking on the raised office platform, you may want treading from diamond steel or grating. For a more professional look, you may prefer a plywood covering. If the raised space is for storage, you may prefer panels or grating that complements the space, size and weight of your storage items.
