Installing A Lift System For Your Building's Mezzanine

Posted on

Depending on the design of your building, the addition of a mezzanine will have the impact of greatly increase the amount of usable space in the structure. However, this area will need to be easily accessed. In this regard, you can install a lift that will make this area of the building easy to access.

Minimize The Space That Is Used With A Custom Mezzanine Lift

A mezzanine lift is a fairly large piece of equipment, and this will make it important to minimize the amount of space that it will occupy in the facility. Luckily, there are services that can assist you with creating and installing a customized mezzanine lift. These services can review the interior design of the building as well as the layout of the floorplan to create a design that will meet your access requirements while keeping the lift system as compact as possible.

Use The Lift To Easily Transport Heavy Items To The Mezzanine

In addition to allowing people to easily access the mezzanine, these lifts can also be useful when moving heavy items or equipment to these areas of the building. However, if you are wanting to use the mezzanine lift for transporting heavy items, it will be important to consider this when you are reviewing potential lift systems for your building. In particular, you should review the lift's capacity to ensure that the heavy items and equipment will not exceed this limit. Otherwise, the lift system could suffer damage that may stop the lift from being used until the necessary repairs are completed.

Track The Maintenance Work That You Do To The Mezzanine

Mezzanine lifts are powerful and complicated mechanical systems. Not surprisingly, they will require regular maintenance to keep them in working condition. The type of maintenance that is needed will be similar to what is needed for commercial elevator systems. However, a mezzanine lift will be smaller than an elevator system, which can help to reduce the costs and time involved with maintenance visits for the lift. Many areas will have building codes that require these lifts to be serviced at periodic intervals for the safety of those that will be using them. Having the mezzanine lift serviced at approximately the same time each year can help you to avoid accidentally skipping this important task. Furthermore, tracking any repairs that the lift may need outside of these service visits can help you with identifying patterns with the problems that the unit experiences.
