Cogan Mezzanine to Install Next Week in Central Mass

This Cogan Mezzanine will be installed next week above a new production area. The mezzanine will be used primarily to support equipment used in the manufacturing process. Personnel access to the deck will be limited and a Cogan Caged Ladder used to access the deck when necessary. We’ve also incorporated a 5′ lift out gate allowing forklift access to a pallet drop area on the deck. The deck will extend to the walls on both the North and West sides of the mezzanine. By extending the deck right to the wall it eliminates the need for handrail and saves on some cost.

The deck is also cantilevered over an existing curb that protrudes into the room on the West end of the drawing. It’s quite common for curbs, pipes, ventilation and other obstacles to be present in the areas you want to install a mezzanine in. It’s important to take them all into account and design accordingly before the mezzanine is manufactured and delivered.
